L'Explorateur is a very good dinner restaurant specializing on local fare. The staff was very attentive but the service was very slow. The food was attractively presented and very good.

I passed this place many times in my time in Martinique and finally today I tried it. I love to dive and have seen many lion fish which are an invasive species. People are allowed to hunt them but I have never tried them. So...More
