Beautiful food pizza plus other dishes. Beer on draft which was perfect. Lovely staff. Outstanding deserts. Always made to feel welcome. Definitely worth a visit! !

We ordered takeout, and the pizza was surprisingly good. The only reason I say surprisingly is because I rarely expect to find good pizza in the Caribbean. The pizzas are a bit bigger than personal size American style, but 1 is enough for two people to share.

Pizza and pasta dishes were very good. Portion sizes were large and enough to share although they are not intended to be shared. Reasonably priced so we ended up eating her 3 out of 4 nights on our trip.

Very good pizza at reasonable prices. The restaurant is a bit away from the water and is in a quiet place. The wait staff was very good and we do recommend it.

Although the sign on this brightly colored eatery on the main road as you leave central Deshaies heading northward proclaim Pizzeria, it is that and more. The pizza selection is very creative, but if you are looking for traditional italian combos you may be disappointed. The dish that won me over was the carbonara: fresh pasta with just the right...

After having fish most every night, we found this pizza place by accident while out for a walk. The pizza was delicious, drinks good and the service excellent. It is a great choice for a nice, thin crust and worth a visit.

We stumbled upon Metis cafe while looking for a place to eat on a Tuesday night, which happens to be the night when many restaurants are closed and those few that are open, are reserved in advance! We walked in at the right moment as we got an immediate seating and minutes later people had to wait at the bar... More

We have eaten here once every year for the past 5 years. The pizza is good and most of the restaurant is outside. They used to have music and dancing on Thursdays but I'm not sure about 2017. It's definitely worth a visit while in Deshaies.

We were in the Deshaies area for 4 days/nights. It was me and my wife ate here twice during our stay. The pizza is a thin crust pizza which we prefer. The Metis salad was delicious. It was similar to an antipasto. The prices are reasonable and the service was great.

Seeing as the town rolls up the sidewalks at 8 pm we didn't have much choice. Had the veggies pizza, I'd give it a "B-" Pretty good crust, ok sauce and toppings. The salad, vegie, was sub-par, supposed to have market fresh vegetables but instead had canned green beans and corn with a bland dressing. Overall not the worst but... More
