Perfect location in a corner in the middle of Gustavia. Good for drinks and a light lunch or evening drinks. Excellent for a shopping break. Not fancy nor pretentious. Good service.

This place is an institution in St Barths. Its location in Gustavia makes it a great meeting point for everyone in your party.

Day trip, exploring the island. Stopped for an early lunch, but when the check came they said no credit cards 😳. Thank goodness had some/enough cash to cover check, barely. The only thing I would suggest is they should tell the customers that they are a "cash only" establishment either before seating them or before taking an order. Sure would... More

While the food and location were good, we were really turned off by our waitress. She was just so unfriendly and acted like we were bothering her. Don't work in the service industry if you hate dealing with people.

Visited St. Barths on a rainy Monday and most of the town was closed. Le Bar de L'Oubli was the only place open. The food, drinks, ambiance, service was amazing. I'd return and would recommend anyone stop by when in St.Barths.

You can find a lot of restaurants to have breakfast or even brunch on such a small Island but this one is very very good, fresh and original! Open air tables on the main street and good service also... We'll be Back soon!

Decent bar and food was ok as well. Had about 5 beers on tap with some good French beers. Open air seating so you can enjoy the outdoors but it can get load if there's a lot of traffic since it's right off the road

Located close to the dingy dock just south of the port authority. We enjoyed a nice breakfast with the kids liking the pancakes and the adults enjoying coffee and croissants. Like everything in this town - a bit pricy but good and a nice open air dining area allows you to watch people and enjoy the day.

We were on a day trip from St Maarten and were intending to go to Le Select, but it had just rained and all the seating was wet, so we chose to try across the street at Le Bar de L'Oubli and we were very happy we did. We were not in any hurry, so the service was perfect for... More

Nice place to sit and watch the world go by with a drink and good for a burger and the like. The French name translates to Bar of the Forgotten. We felt that way when seeking a second round of drinks and again the account.More experienced, service orientated staff would improve their income. Maybe they get plenty anyway.

Thank Lynton R
