The first thing you will notice about Bonito is the view. Located on a hill in Gustavia, the restaurant enjoys an unbeatable panoramic outlook over the harbour. In the evening, the lights from the boats create an incredible atmosphere. With its beach-chic vibes, in-house DJ and spacious lounge area, this is easily one of the trendiest restaurants in St Barts.

As its name hints, Bonito fuses South American ingredients with a classical French style. Light but flavour-packed starters, Peruvian ceviches and tiraditos start things off, we are big fans of the “Crispy” tuna ceviche and the sea scallop tiradito. For the main courses meats are cooked on a charcoal grill – our favourite dishes are the Peruvian sautéed sliced beef tenderloin and the Iberian Pig Presa. Fish lovers won’t be able to resist the spiny lobster risotto. In the unlikely event that you’re still hungry, we recommend the dark chocolate mousse for dessert.

Dress to impress and head to the bar before sunset, for some of the best cocktails in St Barts. Don’t miss their barrel-aged cocktails – the Negroni is our favourite.
