Very kind service, but unfortunatelly, the langouste (half of a lobster) was too salted and too seasoned - there was absolutely no sign of delicious taste of the gentle lobster flesh, only too much salt and spices, what makes me think that they maybe tried to cover that the lobster was not fresh .... Far from lobster as we know... More

Firstly, don't use the Trip Advisor locator map to find Les Pieds – it is innacurate. Les Pieds is situated just in from the sea near the Old Port in Saint Francois. Much as we thought this restaurant good value as indicated by other reviewers, we were slightly dissapointed with the food. The Accas were very doughy and heavy, the... More

They took us in even if it was Easter and we didn't have a reservation. The food is good and the service is excellent. Great spot

The first time we tried to eat at Les Pieds dans lEau, they did not have any fish left and we were told to make a reservation next time. We weren't sure where are we going to be, so next time we were in St.Francois, we tried again and were told without reservation we can only have Chicken Colombo. So,... More

We drove almost two hours to eat at this incredible family-owned restaurant, they have the most famous grilled langouste (spiny lobster) on the island. It did not disappoint! Charly manages the front and his mom does all the cooking. Super friendly, excellent meal, beautiful memories. When you order ti-ponch, they just leave you the bottle of rum on the table.... More

Authentic Creole cuisine with a very accommodating waitstaff & charming hostess. Very good value if you stick to local specialities--try a ti-punch or a planteurs, not an imported wine. My simply grilled fish was excellent.

We discovered this place at St Francois Port where the owner's son (Charly) was giving out flyers and were pleasantly surprised at the quality and authenticity of the food, but foremost the incomparable customer service which goes beyond serving food in the restaurant. Charly knows all the good places to visit in St Francois and neighbouring towns and was the... More

I would not return here. It's cheap, but so what if you don't like the food. It actually might be expensive for what you get. Terrible wine lists. Nice friendly staff, but maybe too relaxed. You have Beene warned. Try Zagaya or L'O next door. Better lobster by far for a few euros more.

Well not literally, but this place has its foundations in the sea. We ate here twice while staying in St Francois for a week. It is very convenient for both the town and marina. A place full of locals is bound to have good food at great rates so it pays to book as it gets very busy. They like... More
