Caribbean Island with excellent French Food.
Does anybody recall a brief but lively discussion around this time last year about a certain Caribbean Island with excellent French food.?The discussion was detailed enough to include discussions of individual restaurants. I meant to make a note of it but forgot. I'm asking for help now as I may be able to get a week off towards the end of February and this would be one place I would definitely like to visit. It would help, however, if I could remember the island's name! TIA.

Well for sure it isn't Jamaica BUT.... There is an incredible French Restaurant (like dining in an old inn in Quebec or rural France) in a town about 15 or so miles away from Ocho Rios called Moneague. The restaurant is called Cafe Aubergine and it is simply wonderful...all manner of haute cuisine, beautifully presented and served with flair. People come from Kingston or Montego Bay (these are a good two to two and half hours away on road that is sometimes 'iffy'.....) to eat there. It is very expensive but worth every dollar, for us it is a 'special treat' place (I guess we treat it like Scaramouche in that it is a destination for a Celebration/Anniversary etc. (plus we don't have a car here but we hire a 'driver' and car for the evening...easier than owning a car) Jamaica makes good/great local food, passable Italian and generally dreadful pizza....so as a food destination you best like either of those two cuisines! We have a "Hard Rock Cafe" and a Margueritaville(sp?)....We are not amused!! JAMAICA is fabulous though and we consider it our second home!
SBH.. St Barth's Without a doubt!!!
It is the MOST amazing island in all the caribbean....nothing can compare..at all!!
Here are some of my favs on the island:
