Serving classic old-school French in a charming stone structure, this is the island's oldest continuously operating restaurant. Warm and romantic, with wooden windows open to the breezes, this is like a meal at grand-mère's house, if grand-mère could cook like a classically trained French chef. Start with the warm goat cheese salad on a bed of chicory or escargots in garlic butter, a house specialty. The expertly prepared mains range from sole meunière (sliced at your table) to Grand Marnier duck to grilled Caribbean lobster. The wine list has plenty of well-priced French wines and bubblies, with a sprinkling of vintages from elsewhere around the world. Reservations are recommended.
