The stylish Mediterranean menu is inspired by the South of France. At the beach restaurant we particularly enjoyed tuna niçoise salad which was visually stunning and perfectly cooked, and the award winning lobster roll was the best we have ever tasted, ideal to enjoy with a crisp glass of French white wine.

For dinner the food really showcases the talents of the kitchen. You can start with a selection of gourmet snacks, followed by creative Mediterranean dishes. We recommend the roasted squids with spianata and gremolata and the refreshing tomato tart to begin. The lobster linguine with a spicy bisque was as delicious as it sounds, and if available you can share an indulgent whole thyme roasted bresse chicken. For dessert it was impossible to resist finishing the meal with the signature Rivyera lemon tart and the pistachio crème brûlée with a warm madeleine.

Arrive early (or stay late) and enjoy some of St Barth best cocktails and a breath-taking ocean view at Le Bar. The menu was designed by Haydée Otero, a French artist from Nice. Head mixologist Victor Delpierre has created eight cocktails inspired by different places in the hotel, made with infused spirits and natural essenses. Hotel Christopher also host a special sunset lounge with DJ every Monday and Thursday 5-7pm.

For true indulgence combine your meal with spa treatments at the oceanfront Sisley Spa, one of St Barths best spas.
