Food, atmosphere, staff attitude were all outstanding. Wait staff was very friendly and considerately keeping a proactive eye on table supply of wine and water. Food was the best I have tasted in St Barth's this week. Exquisite. Try the grilled octopus!

It is easy to evaluate and to recommend Bonito - good food, outstanding ambiance with superb views and a team to offer you the best service. I have been to this restaurant many times and I never regret the choice. It is always the first place I go after arriving in the island.

Full of hedge fund wannabees fresh off the rented yachts in the harbor. Old-timers resent it because it replaced a perfectly good, reasonably-priced Thai joint. Get a window seat overlooking Gustavia if you can fight off the investment bankers and survive the withering condescension of the hostess; otherwise you’ll be ignored for long stretches by the self-important wait staff.

This is a very nice restaurant on a hill overlooking the harbor. The staff is polite and attentive. The meal was served promptly and everything we had chosen was prepared very well, and delicious. A lengthy wine list complimented the menu.

Always crowded and buzzy, this place offers remarkable good eats at high prices. One of the few 'scence' restaurants but maintains high quality notwithstanding.

Excellent food and excellent staff. Incredible wine list. Our hotel made 8:30pm reservations at the bar with a 9pm dinner reservation. This is one of the best restaurants on the island. Highly recommend.

A beautiful and very chic setting up above the bay with great views in an open air restaurant. The bar is excellent with the mixologists busy creating very visually inspiring and delicious cocktails. The service is excellent and the food -exceptional. Everything we had on the menu was terrific - you cannot go wrong. There is also a great DJ... More

Elegant yet very casual decor. Beautiful view onto Gustavia's harbour. Focus is on the seafood. Good cuisine, though not terribly creative. Very, very fresh ingredients. Excellent service (perhaps a tad too quick by French standards, though not by US). Priced to match. If one feels like spending some money, this maybe the place. Enjoy.
