Fun places, Sophisticated Places, French Places, Sunset Places…every place is the perfect place in St. Barth’s!
Where to Eat
- Eddy’s Ghetto Located in the heart of Gustavia, with a classic Caribbean vibe and great food, Eddy’s is a long time local favorite.
- La Guérite – Located on the far side of the harbor in Gustavia, we love this restaurant for it’s lively, stylish atmosphere and wonderfully fresh food. Dinner only.
- Santa Fé – A great spot for lunch after a morning on Gouvernor Beach. Fabulous food, longtime local spot.
- Grain de Sel: Perfect for lunch after a swim and walk on Saline Beach.
- Le Sereno Restaurant: Wonderful for lunch with a setting right on the water at Grand Cul de Sac. From your table you’ll gaze out on the stunning turquoise water of the bay. Following lunch you can rent stand up paddle boards and go searching for sea turtles!
- Bonito: incredible view of Gustavia Harbor, ask for a table on the terrace. Expensive but incredible food. Great for a special night.
- Tamarind: located near Saline, this is a gorgeous and delicious retaurant in an exotic garden setting. Good for drinks and or dinner.
- Shellona: Go for long (likely boozy) lunches. The fish and rosé are wonderful. Your feet will be in the sand and you’ll likely be in a swim suit as it’s located on Shell Beach.
- Maya’s To Go: The one stop shop for a gourmet picnic or delicious food on the run. Located in St Jean.
- Choisy Boulangerie, Lorient: A classic French boulangerie with a great seating area (most boulangeries have little in the way of seating) and if you’re lucky, the croissants will have just come out of the oven!
- L’Isola: You’ll feel as though you took a quick flight and landed in Italy the moment you are welcomed into the restaurant. They speak to you in Italian, everyone who works there is Italian, the food is all from Italy, and it’s absolutely fabulous. Beautiful minimalist interior all lit by candles. Very romantic.
- L’Isoletta: the “little sister” to L’Isola, the island’s best Italian restaurant, L’Isoletta is a more casual, more affordable version. Pizza is their specialty – you can eat there or take it out, either way it’s some of the best pizza we’ve ever had!
- L’esprit – Located in Saline, this restaurant is a favorite of many long-time St Barthians who come for the elegant yet relaxed garden atmosphere and delicious food from chef Jean Claude Dufour.
- Ile de France: For a fancy lunch in a spectacular setting, La Case de l’isle is hard to beat.
- Kiki-é Mo: Located in St Jean, across from Petit St Jean beach. This is a great spot to take away breakfast or lunch (or dine in, in a small casual atmosphere). They have fresh juices, Acai bowls, and a good selection of salads/lunch food.
*** The easiest and best way to make reservations for any of the Island’s restaurants is through the St Bart Smart Guide ***
Where to Drink
- Pearl Beach: Located on St Jean beach it’s a fun and casual spot to grab a drink and hang out on their lounge chairs or at their beach bar.
- Nikki Beach: World famous and always a party, Nikki beach is a great spot to go to be entertained, drink lots, and then float around in the waters of Petit St Jean.
- Le Ti: For a lively and exotic night, head to the bar at Le Ti after dinner (you can eat there, but we think it’s more fun to eat elsewhere and then just grab late night drinks at the bar). Best done on a Friday or Saturday night. You’re in for a show!
- Picnics: Our personal favorite – just grab a bottle of rose and a baguette and head to your favorite beach. There’s no better spot for a drink than that!
