A beach side casual lunch. Fantastic! We have enjoyed lunch here so much we have been back to this beach several times just to have lunch here. The 10/12 Euro 3 course (including a ti punch) can't be beat!

We came here on a Sunday, so of course it was very busy. We were seated quickly, and received our menus, but then it took a while to order. Lunch is a leisurely experience on Basse Terre so we were not in a hurry. I was glad to see a vegetarian option on the menu, but it turned out to... More

The restaurant was packed (it opens only during the day). We spotted a vacant table and enjoyed a 4-course lunch. The first course is a small but very powerful rum and lime drink, which we ordered without any sugar or syrup. A great start. Next came the ubiquitous accras (small spherical cod fritters). For my main course I chose 'fricassee... More

Good location but that's where the good ends. Plastic chairs and tables, slow and surly service. Average prices.
