Had a wonderful dinner with friends here at Le Samcielo!.. It is very popular and that speaks volumes..A reservation is a must to eat here. Great simple place with dishes prepared on the spot (so yes; you will inevitably have to wait) No problem; order some wine or planteur and relax awhile. We were a group of 4 Americans; hostess was very good to us and she entertained our French. The cook works very hard in his open-air kitchen and is friendly and upbeat. He exudes hard work and positivity and that alone is enough to support his business! :) - Each of us had something a little different - pork, chicken, fish, beef. We also had a sampling of accras as an appetizer (shrimp was were yummy!) Alas - there was no room for dessert for us - but we saw other people having it; and they looked great... There is a view at this restaurant if you are lucky to be by a window..But we could only enjoy the twinkling lights on the hillside across the way.. Great wholesome food; good people.

Our dinner was really amazing and you get great, but really great value for money!
it's hard to find a decent restaurant in this area based on trip advisor cause it seems everyone just eats lobster of langoustines around here which offcourse is kind of always great..

this restaurant however was very nice to dine, great view over the island and the food is very local. I took the smoked chicken which was amazing and my fiancee took the lambik of steak d'agneau which came with a gratin of bananas. both were amazing and we were so happy we went to this place.
Even felt bad to not be able to come here again since it was our last day.

they are still renovating the place so the toilet was a bit of a camping site, but still, awesome place.

best thing is to park at the other side of the street where the school is.

This is no fancy restaurant. The husband cooks alone in his open kitchen and the wife runs the restaurant. They are both super nice but the food took soooo long to arrive. However it was worth the wait because it was delicious and inexpensive. The chef came to apologize for the delay and offered a digestif on the house.

First of all, if you want to have a grilled lobster (la langouste grillee), you must call ahead to reserve one. Unfortunately, we did not know that and did not have this restaurant's best dish. Fortunately, they had conch - which was prepared expertly. Overall, the food was top-notch.
On the other hand, the service was ultra-slow. In general, the service on the island is quite relaxed, no problem with that, but we had to wait for an hour for our food. That said, there was one server and one chef working the entire dining room, so that is not surprising. Also, this is not fine dining by any means. It is basically a single room in a concrete building, no frills. The main thing they concentrate on is their food, so if you want awesome grilled seafood and chicken, this is the place to go.
Oh, and they have quite a nice selection of rhums, including the Niesson Vieux, and various digestifs.
