After reading the excellent reviews here, I was anxious to try dinner at La Savane during our weeklong stay in Deshaeis. Each day and night we passed by and they were closed...finally on our very last night on the island, they were miraculously open and had just one table left for two for the whole night!! We loved our meal... More

We certainly enjoyed trying the delights at La Savane. There is a wonderful blend of Creole/French food by an attentive and excellent staff. Highly recommened.

Disappointingly not much to see or do in Deshaies but several good restaurants along waterfront. La Savane offered excellent menu although the service the evening we were there was very slow even by Cruzan time. I thought they may have been short staffed that evening

Our #1 dining experience on Guadeloupe. This is obviously a very well-run establishment. Food, service and location were excellent, although this restaurant is relatively expensive compared to others in the area. Staff is very friendly and efficient. Reservations are essential. Also, if you would like to have lobster (langouste), you will need to order 1-2 days in advance. We will... More

We got forgotten and other people who came after us got their orders before we do. It took them 1 hour to serve us food. When a joking comment was made to the waiter if a desert can be offered for free his answer was "i'm not the boss and can't decide". If customer service is important for you i... More

Right on the harbor at Des Haies with great views and nice breezes. The food is excellent -- I loved the Marlin Tartare -- and the service is tops.

After sampling a number of the waterfront restaurants in Deshaies during our two week stay, we returned again to La Savane on our last night. The service was the best and the food was excellent. Our hostess/waitress/proprietor was a delight and spoke excellent English, a plus for us with our poor command of French!

Lovely restaurant with views over the bay. The staff are lovely and friendly and spoke some English which was great as there were one or two items on the menu we were not sure of. I had the prawns in a curry sauce which was delicious. My husband had fish (can't recall exactly what) but was also excellent. Can thoroughly... More

Last night in town- the foie gras app was out of this world! Everything we ate was wonderful. As romantic or fun of a setting as you want, friendly staff who spoke English. We walked in without a reso and they quickly filled up around us.
