This ultra-casual beach restaurant shaded in sailcloth is a favorite midday stop of many, serving breakfast and lunch on the powdery sands between Le Sereno and La Gloriette in front of the Ouanalao Dive shop. You can sit at covered picnic tables on the beach or up on narrow wooden bars stretching around the main bar—either way you'll have glorious views of Grand Cul-de-Sac. The food is really good and really fresh, from burgers, panini, and local fish to lobster salad and even French/Creole mashups like cassolette de langouste et poissons (lobster and fish cooked au gratin with vegetables in a creamy curry sauce) and crème brûlée with local passionfruit.
