Bonito – French Latin Cuisine with a unique view over Gustavia Harbour. The feel is that of a cozy beach house, and their cocktail menu is well worth the visit. Chef Laurent’s also offers in-villa catering for those wishing to enjoy a home-based dining experience.
O’Corail – A casual beach restaurant with a whole lot of atmosphere and ample seating to take in the beautiful lagoon. Fresh fish and creole recipes dominate the menu and the rum punch is truly a winner.
La Plage – The menu is a unique blend of french culinary art and latin seasoning, with a thoroughly South-American personality and an excellent beachfront position. Expect plenty of seafood, live bands and DJ’s and don’t miss their Bikini Brunch every Saturday.
Restaurant Le Gaiac – Fine Dining at it’s best, all helmed by Chef Sylvain Revelant. The restaurant hosts a ‘Tuesday Fish Market’, Sunday Brunch du Toiny and an extensive a-la-carte menu. Notable for its innovation and extraordinary presentation.
Taino – French Cuisine with a distinct Brazilian personality. Perfect for gourmet breakfasts and romantic dinners. The beachfront setting allows diners to embrace the natural beauty of the Ocean.
Jojo Burger – Footsteps from Lorient Beach, this snack-bar is the perfect place for those looking to take a quick moment from the surf. Causal, affordable and awesome burgers.
Le Palace – Good music, friendly atmosphere and quality food. Right in the heart of Gustavia, the menu consists of traditional french cuisine as well as a heavy seafood theme.
The Hideaway – Home to many island regulars due to the wonderful hosts (British of course!) and great menu. Their takeaway pizzas are a hit with visitors and the menu is laid-back but very tasty.
La Langouste – Sat on the stunning Flamands Bay, this fish-based restaurant is the perfect spot to try authentic island lobster. A more refined dining experience, but definitely memorable.
