The pros at La Langouste (that would include owner Annie Ange, a St. Barth native) have been expertly dishing up old-fashioned fine dining for many years. The cognoscenti know that the house restaurant at the Baie des Anges hotel is the place to come for grilled spiny lobster, fresh from the tank, as well as reasonably priced French and Creole classics like conch fricassee and filet de boeuf. You dine poolside on a pleasantly unpretentious outdoor deck, with slivers of Flamands Beach views—when the sun sets and the pool lights come on, the scene takes on a romantic cast.
