This is supposed to be one of the nicer restaurants in St-Francois, and the place looks very charming. The food we ordered was well made, but our dinner lasted over four hours. When we arrived at 7 PM (the time of our reservation), there was...More

Iguane Cafe’s team take the French/Gwada food experience to the highest level. We were very impressed by the delicious guacamole/ grapefruit appetizer. The chef, Sylvain, is clearly classical trained in French Cuisine. The Steak au Poivre in a green peppercorn & aged rum was very...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...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....More
