St. Barts


Cheval Blanc

Relax with a feet-in-the-sand lunch of local fish and the best frites in the Caribbean (no exaggeration). The beachfront restaurant turns into a venue for exclusive parties and events during the summer.


In the heart of Gustavia, just a few steps from the port, there’s a great Italian-style pizza place. All the food is prepared each morning, ensuring a conveniently delicious snack any hour of the day.

Kiki-é Mo

Across the street from Nikki Beach is the equivalent of an Italian grocery, a supermarket serving up fresh sandwiches, picnic-style.

Black Ginger

Dramatic decor, authentic dishes, and bold colors make this eatery a St. Bart’s staple; sit on the second floor to dine under the stars. The coconut curry chicken is a standout, and you can’t go wrong with the black pepper mahimahi—a consistent crowd-pleaser.


White walls, white pillars, and white chairs, with nautical accents. The restaurant, a simple, tin-roofed structure, is perched right on the water, close enough to hear the waves crash. Some say if you haven’t eaten at Maya’s, you haven’t experienced St. Bart’s.

Le Tamarin

This Saline beach favorite boasts bohemian vibes in a country-chic style. The restaurant/beach club is designed around a hundred-year-old tamarind tree, that rises up from the middle of the restaurant. There is almost always a line, but you can grab a hammock while you wait.


With a more formal atmosphere than the usual St. Bart’s hot spots, come here for a romantic dinner of traditional Italian dishes. Some swear the pastas are the best you’ll find in the Caribbean.


A culinary destination with excellent wines and a warming environment. Sit in the garden for a lunch under the willow trees.

On the Rocks 

The trendy restaurant at Eden Rock has always been where the island’s finest flock. Come to rub elbows and try the restaurant’s signature ginger margaritas.

Sand Bar 

A perfect balance of laid-back attitude paired with first-class service. Walk around the Eden Rock sunbathers and up the steps onto the deck to enjoy the freshest salads that you’ll have all trip.

Do Brazil

One of the places to come for lunch is this beach house on Shell Beach. It has good music, carefree cuisine, and beauties wandering up for drinks in bikinis. Order a burger, a mojito, and ignore the price; it’s well worth it.


Bonito offers a unique French-Latin cuisine with a great view of Gustavia Harbor. Resembling an intimate living room, Bonito feels like a cozy beach house designed to make guests feel at home.
