Le Papillon

Located in perhaps an unusual setting on a hillside in a residential neighborhood, this restaurant is owned by a German expat who appreciates the nature that abounds in the surrounding area, and puts his mark on the menu with the international cuisine.


Owner and chef Thomas offers freshly prepared dishes that cater to all taste with a varied menu. Fresh seafood is available daily, caught by local fishermen.

Le Papillon is a bar and grill that offers Caribbean and Continental cuisines, as well as seafood. Anticipate and dress for a dining experience that is very casual. Diners are welcome to come by to enjoy dinner only, so make sure to plan your visit around the limited hours they are open.


This restaurant offers a unique setting, which features fresh and saltwater aquariums, a rustic appeal, and nautical design.
