Orega St Barths

Niche Travel Guides

Don’t let the humble at Orega façade fool you. This tiny house in the heart of Gustavia is home to the best Japanese food in St Barts and it quickly became one of the most popular restaurants on the island when it opened in 2015 – so reservations are essential. The atmosphere is electric, thanks to the open kitchen, which gives you a ring-side seat to the sushi prep. The ambience is warm and inviting and the service professional and friendly.

Chef Clement Laffitte has created an exciting Japanese-French fusion menu and sources the best ingredients possible from around the world. Orega means ‘it’s mine’ in Japanese, Orega specialises in delicious bite-sized cuisine. Think kobe beef sushi, miso Chilean seabass and wagyu gyoza. Each dish pops with colour, making Orega as much a feast for the eyes as it is for your taste buds. The presentation of the desserts is stunning, they almost look too good to eat.

The best seats in the house are at the bar where you can watch the sushi chef in action. They also have a highly recommended Japanese inspired cocktail menu and the best sake list in St Barts.
