Tel: 268 464 6044's insider take:

This minuscule eatery in a traditional island chattel house is more rum shop than restaurant, with more varieties of the favored island draught—200 at last count—than any other bar in the Caribbean. Madras tablecloths and fishnets with Christmas lights fit the Caribbean vibe almost as much as the owner, who holds court while dispensing local lore (in his pre-bar-keeping life he taught Martina Navratilova and Robert Palmer how to scuba dive). Outside, chirping tree frogs add to the restaurant's soundtrack of zouk, the Guadeloupean Creole music.

Opens Mondays through Saturdays at 7 pm.
