This is one of our go to places in St. Barths. It's at the end of town so it doesn't feel crowded at night. It's open air, well decorated and not pretentious (as some places on St Barths can be.) It has a full menu of the usual dishes (mahi) as well as some more unusual choices (a hummus plate.)... More

We stopped in for lunch while visiting the island for the day. The food was not only delicious it was beautiful. Almost to pretty to eat. I ordered the crunchy shrimp (appetizer) and it was the best shrimp I have ever had!

Called in here one morning recently while in Gustavia and had a couple of capuccinos and got to use their free wi-fi. The two coffees were nine Euros and certainly worth it - a clean, well-ordered cafe with a pleasant street and waterfront view and nice comfy chairs - I could have stayed for hours!

An okay pace...food is always good, but service can be a bit dicey. Good place for breakfast...a lot of the locals have coffee here...a favorite place of the sun worshippers who come off the large tourist boats...

As we walked through Gustavia on a hot day, we decided we had better find a place to sit and get a drink before walking again. We happened upon this open air establishment across the street from the harbor. The hostess seated us near the street and we could watch cars and people walking by. The parking lot obstructed most...

Bottom-line for us--there are a lot of things to like about this place. Nice view of the harbor and a fun place to people-watch. The servers were very pleasant and personable, and the food was prepared well and nicely presented. We came for drinks and we were there for lunch--I would go over tomorrow if I were still in St....

Had dinner here with friends our first night in St. Barth. None of us especially enjoyed our meals, which was a bit of a bummer. Prices were on par with what you expect here. Its easy to find, being directly across from the ferry pick-up/drop-off, and the views of the harbor at night were lovely. We really enjoyed the atmosphere... More

Like most places on the island, the service is very accommodating, changes and special requests all met. We had a lovely lunch watching the people go by. It's classic French, tuna nicoise salad was fresh and bright with italian canned tuna (well seasoned and yummy). Extensive apertif/digestif selection was nice for lunch.

We had lunch here on our first day in St. Barths. We enjoyed some calamari and shared a salad with bacon and goat cheese. The atmosphere was perfect - our table was alongside the street and we could see the yachts and people scurrying around the streets of town. Would recommend it for a nice relaxing lunch.
