I have been visiting Iguane Cafe over 10 or 15 years now, Only very occasionally (because I am only in this area every two years and have to walk quite way to get to it) It has always been excellent. It is a lot quieter now than it was, and staff is smaller, but the attention to detail has been... More

We visited on Feb. 14 for a "special valentine menu". Our reservation was for 7:30. What was supposed to be a romantic, relaxed dinner was anything but. The menu was fixed for everyone, which I believe was part of the problem. I have experience in this field and unless you have an adequate staff to prepare and serve the same... More

This is top level French dining, with delicious food and presentation, with a great wine list and very convenient if you're in St. Francois. In the local restaurant guide, which is WAY more critical than Tripadvisor ratings, Iguane Cafe got top marks, and deservedly so.

The waiter is friendly and speaks English which was helpful for us since our French is extremely basic. They had a good selection of wine and they gave us complimentary cold soup appetizer and duck pate. We ordered le supreme (chicken risotto), grilled duck, and lobster ravioli and they were all amazing! The ambiance is wonderful and you can see... More

Had diner with our 2,5 year old daughter here. Very nice restaurant with gourmet-style food. Even the kids menu is something extra. Starters were absolutely spot on. Mains were great. Maybe a little slow. Prices more than ok for the meals and service we got. Daughter loving the cloche (cover) over her meal :-)

My husband and I ate dinner here this evening . The restaurant is beautifully appointed surrounded by a garden and artistic touches. The food is very uneven, however. The amuse Bouche given as a complimentary starter was delightful a pumpkin mouse and tapenade of sundried tomatoes with toast , homemade rolls were also excellent . We started with a appetizer...

After our amuse bouche, we started with the foie gras mousse which they split for us with excellent presentation. If you like foie gras it is divine, we have never had anything like it. For our main courses, I chose the lobster with vegetable tagliatelle and my husband had beef short ribs. The presentation and flavor were lovely. We drove... More

The modest exterior belies a very elegant and well appointed spacious interior - a beautiful restaurant. The dishes, based on mostly local ingredients, reveal a strong classical French lineage and are mostly excellent, if not of dazzling originality. The marlin carpaccio, thin slices of impeccably fresh fish, was a winner, a light and tasty appetizer. A plate of seafood brought... More

We ate here on a weekday evening, having reserved a table for two at 19:30, the opening time of the restaurant. I reserved from the States, leaving a message at the restaurant, and I received both a phone call and an email confirmation. Out of all the places I left messages (hotels, sailing excursions, restaurants, this was the most responsive... More

Six of us ate dinner here last week. None of the reviews we read even begin to share the special experience of this lovely restaurant. It really compares to the nicest restaurants in the States. The setting is tropical and beautiful with lovely sculpture, table settings, lighting, etc. The noise level was so quiet. But the food and the service... More
