Zoo Rock Cafe

Bas-du-Fort | (059) 090-7777

Zoo Rock Cafe, on the premises of Marina Bas-du-Fort, is located in Bas-du-Fort, along the southern outskirts of Pointe A Pitre. The decor, service, and atmosphere of this awesome bar and grill is not formal in the least, and that means patrons can spend some time winding down while they indulge in the sweet French offerings.

The food is not the star of the show here, but it is still worth checking out. If you're actually hungry, try and get there early to order something off the grill, because once the party-people arrive, you'll find it harder to simply sit and enjoy your meal. The best thing on the menu, according to many people who have eaten there before, is the brochette, which is a huge skewer of meat that has been grilled.

Caprice des Iles

Baillif | (059) 081-4797

Caprice des Iles is located in the heart of Baillif, a village on Basse-Terre; three miles (four and a half kilometers) to the northwest of Basse Terre. Salty, fresh seafood and French style eats share the same plate at this unique eatery.

Seafood fills up most of the menu, though there are a few other options like chicken and salads.

Côté Jardin

Pointe A Pitre | (059) 090-9128

Located in the southern outskirts of Pointe A Pitre, Côté Jardin is at 7 Galerie Marina. Seafood (of course) and French food make for a bold combo at this well-liked dining option.

Dining at Cote Jardin, you feel as though you are eating in the cozy breakfast nook of an elegant home. The lighting is bright and as natural as possible, and the decor is somehow both simple and ornate, but comfortable all at once.

Bois Joli Restaurant

Terre-de-Haut | 59-0995038

Bois Joli Restaurant is situated 1.5 miles east of Grand Anse; it is 12.8 miles to the southeast of Basse Terre. When considering this restaurant, anticipate a refined dining experience that offers a well-deserved break from the fare from street vendors and snack bars.

Bois Joli Restaurant serves the taste of Normandy, including foie gras ravioli in hen saude, rack of lamb, and wood pigeon with sweet sour sauce.

Le Grand bleu

Ste. Anne | 59 5 90 88 25 78

Le Grand bleu, on the premises of La Toubana Hotel Spa, is located in the western part of Ste. Anne, a town on Grande-Terre; eight and a half miles (13 and a half kilometers) to the east of Pointe A Pitre. When the boisterous crew is looking out for a really excellent French meal in a fairly relaxed and welcoming dining area, this easy going restaurant is a safe bet.

Le Grand Bleu serves traditional Creole fare.
