We had an excellent evening in La Kaz du Douanier. From the starters, over the 'planteur', to the main dishes, the wine and the desserts, everything was 'spot on'. Very nice, relaxed atmosphere, and very pleasant and friendly service (in our case from Stéphane). We...really enjoyed everything about this place. Keep up the good work!More

This was the most expensive restaurant we ate at in Deshaies. Whilst I will give top marks for the desserts, the rest of the meal was not above average, and didn’t justify the high prices. The restaurant clearly is good at marketing and creates a...reasonable ambience with good decor and friendly staff, but that didn’t matter much to us since they couldn’t do much about a flock of flying ants which was buzzing above our table and into our meal, drinks and hair.More

Used as a set for “death in paradise” this small but characterful restaurant is typical Guadeloupe. What’s nicest about it is the fact that although pretty much every client is a tourist, they treat you as if you are a regular with lots of attention...and charm. Food is excellent with really fresh fish and plenty of choice. Right in the middle of Deshaies, we spotted the full house driving past and booked for the following evening. We were glad we didMore

This was the original location for the bar in the series 'Death in Paradise', situated at the south end of Deshaies. I would recommend that you reserve a table; we did it by phone. We should have just ordered one starter between us, but we...had the ham platter and a salad. For the main course, we had 'Cote de Boeuf', a substantial chunk of meat on the bone for 2. This was initially a little rare for our taste, but was sliced at the table and given a little extra cooking. Perfect. It was accompanied by a substantial number of frites and 3 sauces; pepper & blue cheese being the best. The remains were placed in a takeaway box; they went very well as lunch the next day. We did find room for desserts; ice cream and a praline/passion fruit pudding. Service was just the right speed and, although clearly popular, no effort was made to hurry us away. Both the waiters who served us spoke good English. Recommended for an excellent experience.More

What a Fabulous French restaurant.... I can't say enough good stuff here... SO GOOD... One server, it appeared like, he kept things going and under complete control... We never felt rushed. Dinner was outstanding... We'll be back when we return again!!

Fantastic food, great service, awesome chef and cool place. I can't remember the last time I was so full after just three courses. Go if you want great (food) experience!

This place is on east side of the main street, so doesn't have water views and looks more like a bar than a restaurant. But they have surprisingly fantastic food! Some of my favorite restaurants were closed that evening and after a little survenir shopping,...my dinner choices were limited between some random bars, pizza, a local takeout spot (smoking and smelled delish!) or here. There were a few people sitting outside having drinks, but when I walked in I was told they'd open in 25mins. And I'm soooo glad I went back! Since I was early I got a nice corner table and fast service, but the place filled up very quickly and they're turning some people away. My Seafood Risotto was absolutely PARFAIT, and though they're out of Cafe Gourmand, Flan Coco was smooth and sweet and hit the spot. Will definitely go back👍More

I would highly recommend this restaurant. First good point is that they have a kids menu. The cocktails were perfect. The guy who served us, and the entire restaurant was great. Professional, efficient and had a big smile on his face. The food was perfect....I had the lamb and my husband had the beef. You should reserve as we were lucky to get the last table.More
