Whatever you do, don't miss a stop to visit this colorful and eclectic place while passing through Bouillante on the island of Basse Terre.
The view alone is worth a visit, but the food is fabulous, and don't even get me started about the amazing desserts and mixed cocktails!
We visited twice. Once for coffee and desserts and once for lunch.
The restaurant has several small covered deck areas where you can while away the afternoon eating, drinking, and soaking in the view, and the breezes coming off of the Caribbean Ocean.
Not much English spoken here, but the menu has English and the servers are most friendly.
Open 7 days a week.
Free parking area next to restaurant.
Oh, did I mention the Iguanas? Yep, they are right in viewing distance. In fact some come up into the restaurant, but not to worry. They are shy and not aggressive...just really prehistoric looking. Photographers, pull out your cameras. You will get some great shots of these guys as they are slow and most accommodating.
This was our favorite spot in Guadeloupe, and we will definitely come here on any future trips to the islands.
NOTE: There are a lot of stairs to get up into this restaurant from the parking area, but it's worth the hike.

Good options blencing French and Caribbean motives in a nice location set atop a hill close to the beach. Nice open dining area.

We had dinner here and the service was brisk and polite. We weren't too keen on the general general ambiance but the setting is very good. We particlarly disliked the vivarium which is a grubby looking recycled jacuzzi! The menu and wine list looked good if a bit expensive for La Guadeloupe. We shared a starter of smoked fish and avocado which was very good. Our main courses of fish and octopus were less than average. Both were overcooked and served on chipped crockery. If this was the only place around, we would eat here again. However, there are other, better options available.

we loved everything on the menu, but you better arm yourselve with pactience and humour. Very chaotic service, but seen as we were on holidays and had time to spare, we didn't let it get in the way of enjoying their great food. Specially the Balaou-acras were my wifes favourite on the whole island!

We ate at this restaurant, and the menues were very good, had fish and meat. Maybe a few persons will complain about the prices, but it is even cheaper as in Luxembourg, so good for us. Had a good time there
