Top 3/4 Hotels For Food.......St. Bart's......
My wife and I will be going to SB soon for our 25th anniversary. We love the beach, an ocean view, great rooms, fantastic food and good service. Can you give us some help with Isle De France, Le Toiny, Hotel Guanahani, Francois or Eden Rock. I think we would like Isle De France. Is the food outstanding there. Thanks.
There are so many FABULOUS restaurants in SBH. oh my...where to start...
As mentioned..Le Gaiac
I can go on and on..this place is our absolute favorite island. We go every year, and I am still obsessed with the island. For even more in depth conversation...go to www.stbartstalk.com

There is great food to be found all over St. Barth. La Case de `Lisle at Hotel Isle de France and On the Rocks at Eden Rock Hotel are both excellent. We are regular visitors to St. Barth and have had some great meals at both those places. I had the best seafood risotto I have ever tasted at La Case de `Lisle a couple of years ago. You must not miss The Sand Bar at Eden Rock. It's one of the best places on the island for lunch. Some say the best dinner you will have in St. Barth is lunch at the Sand Bar. Their Dover sole is legendary.
Le Gaiac is the restaurant at Le Toiny. Lots of people swear by it, but we have just been moderately impressed by it. Their Sunday brunch draws sell-out crowds. We were there for that brunch in February and it was good, but I'd much rather go to Sand Bar when I want to spend that much money. Reservations there are a must, especially the Sunday brunch.
The restaurant at Francois Plantation has had its ups and downs. It is said to be currently on an up period, but we haven't been there in three years, so hate to judge it. When we were last there we were disappointed. But give it a try if you really want to spend a lot of money.
We haven't eaten at Guanahani, so can't comment.
When you are at Isle de France, try to meet the owner and operator, Charlie Nicoll. He is a wonderful guy and a very interesting person. He also just happens to be the priest at the Anglican Church in Gustavia.
