You can only reach it by boat, but that's part of the charm of dining at the Hideaway, tucked into a mangrove stand in the inner harbor of gorgeous Marigot Bay. The romance continues once you're here, as you dine deck-side on flavorful and inventive Euro-Caribbean food and watch silvery fish chase the lights rippling in the lagoon waters. Enjoy exotic mash-ups like coconut and pumpkin soup, pan-fried mahi-mahi in a Creole beurre blanc, or chili- and lemongrass-infused shrimp. On Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday nights, Jazz at Rainforest Hideaway jazzes up the ambiance further. You get here via a free 2-minute public ferry from the Marigot Bay dock or on your own private boat. For those concerned that they may be dining in a floating petri dish of hungry mosquitoes, know that bugs are kept at bay with burning mossie coils and spray.
