This old-fashioned ode to high-end French dining is pretty fancy, with crêpes Suzette flambéed tableside and the merry tinkle of good china ringing through the dining room. It's got seaside tables on scalloped balconies that are well worth any efforts to snag—the views across the sea, with Anguilla stretched along the horizon, are sublime. (The water crashing on the rocks below is pretty great, too.) The classic French food is uptown as well. Look for lacquered duckling marinated in honey and "five fragrances;" beef tenderloin with pan-fried foie gras and candied shallots; chateaubriand; and Dover sole meunière. To get here, you'll drive through a slighty off-the-beaten-path local Marigot neighborhood. Leave your car with the valet parking attendant and get ready for some serious personal pampering.  Reservations are recommended.
