In St Barts it's easy to fall in love with food. You sit in your white-canvas banquette, tan and radiant, with the sound of the Caribbean lapping softly in one ear and a handsome garçon speaking French in the other. The waiter tempts you with mahi mahi served en papillote, fresh ingredients imported from Bordeaux, and your heart's desire of desserts, from flambéed crêpes suzette to chocolate mousse.
While many of the meals here are haute-cuisine, you can also find amazing food at affordable prices. Try O'Corail for burgers and frites on the beach, Le Vietnam for noodles, Eddy's for Creole specialties, and Nikki Beach for sushi.
