Went here for dinner during our holiday. I had the entrecote and my wife had seafood risotto. The service was excellent, friendly and attentive. The steak was cooked perfectly and the risotto was also lovely, although it proved too large a portion. We also had the local drink of 'Ti Punch' and were shown how to prepare it.

We had three delicious meals at this restaurant during our stay in Deshaies. Hostess/server/bartender is delightful, gracious and very efficient. Food was a pleasure every time. Would go back and recommend without hesitation. Very reasonably priced for the quality of the food and service.

We ate here twice during our week's stay. You'd be better off with reservations - the second night we pestered the one hostess/waitress (who does an amazing job and keeps everything in her head and is fluent in French and English) and walked around until there was a table at 9:30. Creative and tasty menu in a casual, friendly space.... More

Came for a drink here as it was Catherine's bar on Death in Paradise and then came back for dinner another day as food sounded good. Dinner didn't disappoint. Food was tasty and interesting, waitress was really helpful and friendly. Thank you, we really enjoyed our evening.

Had a great night here. Just one lady serving everyone, but she did a great job. We didn't have to wait long at all! English menu was a plus. Tasty food (risotto was a tiny bit undercooked, but still delicious; the duck was perfect), and very tasty cocktails. Great atmosphere and reasonably priced. Would definitely return - recommended!

This restaurant came highly recommended to us by fellow travelers who had spent a lot of time in DeShaies. We ate at a table right on the sidewalk and could experience the street life on a Thursday night. They also allowed us to have our two labradors with us for dinner. The menu is varied and has some creative twists... More

We came into town looking for dinner and were lucky enough to get a table here without a reservation. Great atmosphere. Our tuna tartare appetizer was fresh and light, as were the mojitos. The duck was cooked perfectly and had balanced flavors of ginger, lemon, and honey. The seafood risotto was no frills but equally delicious. The chef and waitress... More

My wife ordered a seafood risotto which sounded tempting but the two seafood items were mussels and shrimp.Presented in a rather matter of fact way.

This unassuming little spot which is not even on the waterfront (as is MOST of its competition) was one of our absolute favorite meals of the trip. From the local pumpkin soup with prawns to the seafood and saffron risotto to the charming, old wooden structure to the friendly chef, we loved our dinner here! You should definitely visit this...

We've eaten there twice in two separate years and enjoyed the food and decor. Seems like a popular place, as it's always very busy. Very good that they also have an English menu and have staff speaking English (as my partner is English) and they seem to have a good range of tourists. Best to book unless you're lucky like...
