Inspired by the absolute best of the Caribbean the menu evolves with the day. Start your day in style with breakfast by the pool, a combination of fresh juices, pastries, yogurts, fruit, and eggs (try the scrambled eggs with truffle). For lunch, healthy options lead the way. We enjoyed the Burrata and tomato salad and mahi-mahi with coriander, ginger, and lime. In the evening, the dishes become more indulgent. We loved their Caribbean lobster ravioli and the signature dish of local fish bouillabaisse, caught by Patrick Laplace, a fisherman from St Barts. Rhum Baba for dessert is not to be missed if it’s on the menu.

Pull up a seat at their intimate rum and cigar bar. They stock a huge variety of Caribbean rums and will shake you up a signature rum cocktail. It’s a guilty secret, but we always start with a Pina Colada.
