Walking into Le Tamarin you feel as though you are entering a small upscale resort at nighttime. The lush plantings and grounds create a romantic ambiance and the soft music helps set the tone for a one of a kind dining experience.
We gave our car to the valet and went right in. Little did we know that he wouldn't be there upon our departure! Maybe we stayed too long, who knows! It wasn't a big deal as our car was nearby.
The service was exceptional. Attentive and quick to check on us, we had a great experience. Our waiter was good to suggest options when we asked and also was warm and friendly.
Extensive cocktail offerings. I had the Chilly Marga. It was spicy and delicious. Would get it again. Others at our table had the bubbly and they loved it.
The food was top notch. From the bread and butter to the desserts. Just fantastic. The menu is seafood focused with global/French influences and we sampled an good amount of it.
I started with the gazpacho which had quinoa and pineapple in it. I loved it. The quinoa was a surprise which made the soup more substantial.
For my entree I had the Thai tuna with bok choy and spices. It was one of the better tunas I've had. Really enjoyed it. Smooth with no veins, the tuna was high quality.
Our friends had the whole roasted fish, which I believe was snapper. They serve it table side and plate it for you. Served with vegetables, they loved it.
Desserts were also really good. We had one of the tarts and the profiteroles. All of it was gone! Enough said.
Overall, we loved Le Tamarin and would highly recommend it to other diners. I would return next time in St Barths for another memorable dinner, even if the valet disappears after parking your car!!
