We ate here on our day trip snorkeling. Beautiful view, decent food. We had the mahi mahi which was a little dry. Wait staff was slow but this is the Carribbean so things move a bit slower than in the US.

I visited Captain Frenchy and the food was excellent. The restaurant is on a very nice part of the beach. I put 4 stars because we had to ask for napkins.

Great local food and the service is great as well. Inexpensive and the water is an added bonus. Perfect!

My wife and I rented a condo down the beach from Captain Frenchy's place. On our first day in Grand Case we walked along the beach looking for chairs and umbrella to rent. We came across Captain Frenchy and found out that you can use the chairs and umbrellas on the beach in front of it as long as you... More

Good service and good food. I had the mahi mahi and it was quite tasty. They cooked it right, and it wasn't cooked too long so it become hard as with another restaurant I visited later. They served bread first. Unfortunately as with all French side restaurants, they allow smoking, and the French guests light up non stop. Very annoying.... More

The bar tender was less engaged than rainbow (may have been a slight language barrier) and the place felt like a local hangout for staff from the various restaurants/hotels in the area. However, the drinks were the... More

Right next to Rainbow Beach Club, Frenchie's is a great alternative if for no other reason than you want to try something new. Smaller and a bit more intimate and casual (if you can even say that given the beach club atmosphere) the food is very good and the staff warm and gracious.
