It is a rare stay on St. Barts that does not include a visit to this perennial favorite, situated on a hill high above Gouverneur Beach. Folks love it for the welcoming, laidback vibe, the consistently flavorful classic French and Creole fare, and the gorgeous terrace views. They love the tomato tart, the seafood casserole, even the solid fish burger. They love the sparkling sea views by day, and spotting the lights of St. Kitts and Statia by night. Santa Fe is a winner all around.
