We came for lunch. The location is very pretty - right on the beach. The first warning sign was whe we tried to order "fish burgers" (yes, that was what they were called on the French menu); we were informed that they didn't have them - but they did have several kinds of grilled fish. This seemed odd, but we recovered and ordered two other dishes - a pork dish and grilled daurade. Our drinks came right away, but our appetizer (accras, normally very simple and quick) seemed to take forever. Then, after another 45 minutes or so, our entrees arrived, and they were exactly the wrong thing. They finally fixed mine, but we gave up on fixing Partner's - they just couldn't get right. When I paid, the manager very soliciously asked me if the octopus hadn't been cooked to Partner's liking; I told her (as I'd told the waitress twice before) that he'd ordered grilled daurade, not octopus.

There was, by the way, a German couple sitting right next to us who were having pretty much the same problem, so it wasn't just us.

We ain't going back.

A great New Years Eve dinner with a 4 course surprise. I do not speak French but the chef's wife was more then happy to decipher the menu. Best roasted duck I have eaten! Right on the beach. What a great place for dinner!

We had a delightful meal right on the sand next to the water edge! I had conch for the first time - a little tough when grilled, but tasty. Marlin steaks were excellent! Wine is very affordable, service was very good. Will definitely return on our next trip.

Held by a lovely local couple, Soleil Couchant is strait on the beach. The food is great, fresh fish and local food. The staff are so so nice and accomodating, no need to book even if the place is allways 3/4 full-.

Between the starter and main dish you can go for a dip, paradise!
