We have eaten at La Taitu for years and again in January, 2018. Amazing chicken with blue cheese sauce! Wonderful menu selections for both lunch and dinner. Excellent service. Looking forward to returning next year!

Small french/creole restaurant convenient to Orient Bay area. Surprising large menu with nice range of entrees, and some excellent desserts. Reseasonable priced, seemed popular with locals at lunch.

We are sitting here at lunch. We just finished chicken in blue cheese dressing and coconut flan for dessert with chilled white wine and espresso. Anyone on the island, don’t miss this shinning gem!!

This french restaurant was great. We had lunch in the only open restaurant in area. Irma hits here badly. Set lunch under 15e including drink and coffee. Menu was full of nice french and Italian dishes and all of those foods were really delicious.

Great food and service from what appears to be a family owned restaurant. Enjoyed every course from appetizer, entree, and desert. Small cozy but a wonderful place for dinner while in SXM. Just minutes from Orient or Grand Case.

The openness and decor of this restaurant were so great! I had a shrimp dish and my husband had a tuna steak. My shrimp was fairly bland and my husbands tuna tasted fishy and was overcooked. I didn't feel like it was worth what we...More
