What’s On Offer?

An abundance of delis and more than 80 different restaurants, representing cuisine from all across the globe, can be found on St Barths.

In our opinion,the famously sophisticated yet casual restaurant scene – which has seen the island often dubbed
‘the culinary capital of the Caribbean’ – compares favourably to almost anywhere in the world.

Wherever you choose to dine, you can be sure of enjoying varied and exquisite cuisine with French flair,
great wine, attentive service and a relaxed atmosphere.

What’s more, if you look in the right place you’ll often find freshly caught local seafood as well as
French delicacies straight off the regular flight from Paris.

What we enjoy most of all at Les Ilets, though, are the dishes created by local chefs which blend local
products and gourmet ingredients to produce flavours unique to the island itself.

We do recommend that you make a reservation though, especially in high season. Not that there’s any need for you to pick up
the phone yourself – just make a quick trip to reception where our team will be happy to recommend
where you should eat and book a table for you. Advance booking is recommended throughout the high season.

There are also a number of private chefs available if you wish to dine or entertain at home, as well as
a variety of delis and traiteurs offering restaurant-quality food to go.

Sound too fancy?

Worry not – despite the sophisticated food, most restaurants in St Barths are very casual. There’s absolutely no need
to pack your jacket and tie… in fact, you’ll feel very out of place if you do!

What About Lunch?

Of course, there are all sorts of places on the beach for a light (or heavy) lunch. There are family restaurants, atmospheric/trendy restaurants,
chic restaurants, big restaurants and small restaurants.

However nothing beats a “hamburger in Paradise” aka Le Select, a quintessential Caribbean lobster experience at La Langouste or a sublime takeout from one of the many delis to eat in the comfort of your own villa.

For now, we haven’t listed any of the restaurants or delis here – there are too many excellent ones to be able to pick a favourite straight off the bat.

But be sure to watch this space or subscribe to our newsletter, as plans are afoot to review a selection of our preferred island eateries on our blog in the near future.

We’d love to hear from you if you have any questions.
