What to Eat in St. Barts

Some of the best restaurants on the island are found on the site of one of the upscale hotels or resorts, where the brand of Caribbean cuisine combines Creole flavors, exotic local fruits, fresh seafood and traditional French cooking techniques. Venture to different resorts along the coast, from On the Rocks at Eden Rock (the No.1 Best Hotel in St. Barts) to Restaurant Le Gaiac at Hotel Le Toiny, for a luxurious dining experience in an open-air setting. For a more local, but no less lavish, meal, try Maya’s in Gustavia or Le Tamarin (built around a more than 100-year-old tamarind tree) near Grand Saline Beach. If you're in search of some bargain eats, seek out Le Select in Gustavia or Chez Rolande (Wishing Well) in Flamands.
