A beautiful, floating fish restaurant in a private lagoon which I believe is a nature reserve wit hits own resident shark, Johnny. Fantastic food and very good service. It is very, very quiet though. If you are in the vicinity, I would definitely recommend a visit. sadly, we didn't get to meet Johnny !

We spent three nights of our honeymoon at Prince maurice hotel and one of the included dinners was a romantic candle light dinner at Barrachois. Everything was amazing at this restaurant!

We ate here once during our week stay.The setting is beautiful. We had drinks at the floating bar before to watch the sunset which was stunning.

The restaurant staff were very polite, but we were sat on the end platoon, and for this reason wasn't waited on as much as we would expect.

We had main and dessert. I had the beef cheek with mash potato. Which was extremely fatty. I don't mind a little fat on meat, but there were chunks of jellied fat. I barely ate 1 third of it. My husband had fish, which was nice but not the standard we expected.
I had a bounty dessert which was nice, but my dessert on our BA business flight here was 100 times better!

We love fine dining food, but this menu seemed like it was trying too hard and not quite getting it.
A shame considering the beautiful setting.

We decided on this restaurant during out stay here and the recommendation of one of our friends. Easily the best dinner we had on the island. The entire experience was an event. Right from walking into the restaurant, as well as the frankly delectable cuisine on offer. The wine selection was excellent and the atmosphere was great. No visit here is complete, I feel, without a dinner at Le Barachois.
