After receiving precise instructions from the natives as to where to find what they termed as the best lunch restaurant in town, we managed to drive about five kilometers north PAST La Datcha. We doubled back and found it exactly as described: right on the beach at La Feulliere - the longest beach on the island - just opposite the parking lot.
Arriving at noonish we quickly secured a table and with our feet caressing the sand perused the menu. Seeing as we were sitting by the sea fish seemed to be a good choice so The Daughter ordered a brochette while I went for the fresh catch of the day and The Teenager, after checking out the table next to us which was populated with ladies who lunch and their kids, went for the exotic burger with fries.
The single cook in the open kitchen went in to action while we whiled away the time watching the kite surfers put on a show right in front of us. Minutes later our meals arrived and were presented with aplomb by the barefoot waitress. The fish was excellent as according to all reports was the hamburger. Prices are reasonable.
Shortly after our arrival the hordes descended and the restaurant was full by 12:30, the owners pulling out extra tables to meet demand.
This is a quality beach front restaurant in an idyllic location.
