It's simply a gorgeous spot: high up over the glittering Gustavia harbor with creamy white banquettes nestled into the curve of the open-air deck. This upmarket spot has been a hit since it opened in 2009, and it's got a good-looking waitstaff to blend in with the scenery. While some grouse that the service is sometimes outmatched by the swoony setting, you can put up with a little slowness as long as you have a cold drink in hand and those amazing views. Seafood is the focus, and a house specialty is ceviche, here made with interesting things like fresh mahi, octopus, and Florida rock shrimp. Mains include a crispy-skinned branzino, grilled tuna steak with a yuzu hollandaise sauce, and a spiny lobster risotto. The lounge heats up with live music or DJs spinning tunes around 10pm.
