We have eaten here once every year for the past 5 years. The pizza is good and most of the restaurant is outside. They used to have music and dancing on Thursdays but I'm not sure about 2017. It's definitely worth a visit while in Deshaies.

We were in the Deshaies area for 4 days/nights. It was me and my wife ate here twice during our stay. The pizza is a thin crust pizza which we prefer. The Metis salad was delicious. It was similar to an antipasto. The prices are reasonable and the service was great.

Seeing as the town rolls up the sidewalks at 8 pm we didn't have much choice. Had the veggies pizza, I'd give it a "B-" Pretty good crust, ok sauce and toppings. The salad, vegie, was sub-par, supposed to have market fresh vegetables but instead had canned green beans and corn with a bland dressing. Overall not the worst but... More

We ate here to save some money as it had good review and was cheaper than most surround restaurants. The pizza was lovely, huge and generously topped. The waitress was great, helping us with ingredients we didn't know the French for. We had 3 beers, two pizzas, two desserts and a caraf of rose wine for 64 euros. Great restaurant.

For something besides seafood, this is a great alternative. Nice atmosphere, and friendly staff. Both my wife and really enjoyed the pizza. Also, it's only approximately a block away from the "Police Station" as seen on "Death in Paradise". We had a very pleasant experience.

We ordered Pizza to go and were very surprised by the diversity of choices. There is even a "Pizza Savoyarde" with Reblochon cheese on it. It doesn't sound very "Guadeloupe", but believe me after a day in the ocean, we enjoyed every bite of it. The crust is thin and ingredients are great. I give 5 stars because for the... More

After a week of seafood, it was time to try something else so we decided to go for pizza. As my username suggests, I know a thing or two about pizzas. The pizzas were unfortunately not the best but were ok still. Not wood fired oven but the pizzas were thin and crispy and the toppings were generous and nice... More

We were initially hesitant to try Cafe Metis, because the reviews weren't impressive, and it wasn't always open. However, what fantastic pizza! We ordered 2 to share (margarita and another with mixed sausages) and also the Metis salad. Everything was excellent, especially the margarita pizza. Simple, but perfectly cooked, with a light crust and lovely seasoning. Not on the sea... More

We loved the Tahitian Salad. The fish was nice and fresh and the prices were reasonable. Great for evenings with live entertainment. Reserve a table for evenings.

Excellent food choices and outstanding taste, a favourite for locals creating a fun atmosphere. Wished we had been around for the dance evenings!
