Delightful Italian restaurant. We enjoyed sitting outside. The service was excellent, very attentive and it was really nice that the chef came to check on us. Nice wine list, and specials of the day.

For mine, I Pates is without doubt THE best restaurant we've found in Guadaloupe... seriously. Everything on the small menu sounds amazing and our entree and two ravioli mains we're outstanding. Great wines too. It's a taste of Italy in the Caribbean. .... and service....Wow, the two guys front of house guys are unbelievably friendly and accommodating. I wouldn't be surprised if they were the owners. You will miss out on a great treat if you don't make a reservation for I Pates while you're in Guadaloupe.More

This is a very small place.First suggest to make a reservation and request a table outside.First I had a caprese salad.It was very good and thought they made their own mozzarella ,because how light it was.Also had the beef canaloni.This had great flavors and goes...great with their red wine.I wanted dessert ,but after eating the canaloni there was know room.The service was very good also.However, if you do eat inside be prepared of the bright drop lights.This in my opinion should be change to a softer light.More

We ate at I. Pates in March 2018 on a prior visit to Guadeloupe and very much enjoyed it. Our meal this time was every bit as good. The staff (clearly the proprietors) are wonderful and very accommodating, happily describing the menu to us in...English which we really appreciated given our limited capacity in French. The food, both appetizers and pastas were excellent, with great flavors. I would recommend making a reservation as this is a fairly small restaurant, but even for this they Herve promptly responded to my email.More

My daughter and I ate here the night before we had to leave Guadeloupe. It was delicious! We highly recommend trying it. It was a small, quaint spot near the water. They did their best to help us understand the specials in English and we...did our best to order off the menu in French. They were very kind. The food was the best on the island. Reminiscent of our trips to Italy. The Tiramisu special with raspberries and pineapple was out of this world. Don't miss out on this gem.More

This small Italian restaurant is very good and has a very friendly staff that knows how to serve there guests. The menu cart is not that big. All the love and passion goes into the food. It’s highly recommanded to reserve in advance.

Went there with reserved feelings, as I dont like Italian Food, actually I do but probably I never have been lucky to get to a nice Italian restaurant. So this is the first one ...yay! Family run business wife and husband cook amazing, I was...surpised and ate evertying rreally really fast. I think only that some of the starters are overpirsed for the amount of food delivered to the table, but apart from that everything else was absolutely spot on and delicious. I can recommend this place to everyone. Espeacially liked beef cannelonni and the tiramisu. We went 2 families with kids.More

It is one of those places that doesn't pretend and meanwhile serves authentic great food made with love and craft, care and attention. A homely place with comforting ravioli's and burrata's. You have got to love this Italian gem amidst all the French -fish serving-...restaurants. Great for lunch (and a biological wine).More

Love this cozy restaurant! They serve authentic, delicious, fresh pasta. So delicious that my bf and I came here twice during our vacation. We had the ravioli twice and the cannoli pasta. Their burrata with truffle that was a special was to die for! Incredible,...good quality food. Extra points for being vegetarian friendly! The owner is a humorous, friendly man who is passionate about the food he serves.More
