After reading the NY Times article that featured Au bon Vivre I went with high expectations. In a word I found it to be "spotty". The service was okay, sometimes there and sometimes not. The food was good, but not VERY GOOD, based on other food we enjoyed while in Guadeloupe. I ordered a tuna steak that was served almost raw. I asked for them to cook it some more, it was returned totally over cooked. The atmosphere was wonderful. I am going to chalk up our experience to an off night and hopefully return in the future for another meal.

Our meal was creatively prepared and beautifully served. The only issue was how warm the restaurant gets (unlike places right on the beach). But do not miss this wonderful spot in Les Saints

Had lunch here with a group of friends and everyone was very happy with their food. The accras were the best I had on this trip and the salade gourmande was phenomenal. Service was also excellent and the setting gorgeous.
