The Best Cuisine of St Barths

In a place where the clientele are used to only the best, one can be certain that the cuisine will range from the exquisite to the sublime. One such place is Eden Rock St Barths, the luxury resort-hotel that may be the closest thing one would ever get to Fantasy Island.

One look at the regulars of the stylish island of St Barths (assuming, of course, that you could sneak a look, the elite guest list at Eden Rock St Barths) one may wonder just what kind of cuisine would be considered good enough. The answer: the kind of food and wine you will find at the superb restaurants dotting the island. And there is quite a variety – from simple sandwiches to the crowning jewels of haute cuisine. There are around 80 restaurants on the island, all unique but with one thing in common – they serve only the best!

Here are just a few of the restaurants considered the crème de la crème of St Barths’ gastronomic scene.

Sand Bar With Jean Georges

Eden Rock St Barths has the distinction of being home to two of the best restaurants on the island. With the famed French chef and restaurateur Jean-Georges Vongerichten at the helm, both venues boast menus that are nothing short of inspired. The high-quality palates of the elite guests to the island can’t seem to get enough.

The aptly named Sand Bar With Jean Georges, which is right on the beach and open for breakfast and lunch, offers exotic salads, pizza and other wonderfully-crafted fare. The menu is perfectly designed to complement the stunning oceanfront scenery. It is the ideal place to start the day, no matter what time you may get up! The wholewheat pizza with fontina cheese and black truffle is a must-try! Carefully selected wines from around the world make up the extensive wine list and include an oft-recommended organic wine from Alsace.

Le Bête à Z'Ailes

On The Rocks With Jean Georges, Eden Rock St Barths’ gourmet dinner venue, is situated high on the rock itself, and offers a menu to match the exquisite views of Baie St. Jean. Similar to his famed Spice Market, the restaurant offers spectacular haute cuisine of the kind that Chef Jean Georges is known for.

Whet your appetite with a salad of grilled octopus, eggplant compote and marinated pepper, followed by a succulent St. Barths lobster in toasted garlic-drawn butter and Thai coleslaw.

For something completely different, yet no less delicious, Le Bête à Z’Ailes, is an eclectic sushi bar that offers superb food and live music. The exquisitely cut sushi is not exactly traditional Caribbean fare, but it’s a dining experience to die for.

With an exceptional sushi menu, sourced from the finest ingredients, it’s one of the few places on the island you’ll find a lively nightlife.
