The domain of British expat Andy Hall, the Hideaway was given a chic new makeover in 2013, but the globetrotting menu is still good value, pinballing from Caribbean cod fritters to classic escargot to veal Milanaise—not to mention burgers (with housemade French fries) and outstanding thin-crust pizzas hot out of the wood-burning oven. If you haven't stuffed yourself silly, you can finish off your meal with sips of free vanilla rhum. And be prepared to join the house in a boozy singalong of "Sweet Caroline," the Hideaway "anthem." "Chez Andy" cheekily advertises “corked wine, warm beer, lousy food, view of the car park.” The view is, indeed, of a parking lot, but this cherished St-Jean spot always seems to be brimming with high spirits and happy chatter nonetheless.
