view web site ›'s insider take:

Chef Laurent Cantineaux, formerly of Daniel in New York, took over this space in 2009 and transformed what once looked like a Pirates of the Caribbean–themed bar into an crisp, understated restaurant. The blue and white plush banquettes and throw pillows mimicking the feel of the island's toniest beach villas are somewhat overshadowed by the stunning 180-degree view over Gustavia harbor. But the real star is the Latin American menu (the chef spent a decade in Venezuela) with nine varieties of ceviche, tartare, and tiradito. If you can't decide, opt for a degustation plate with samples of four different varieties. Cantineaux also draws on his background with Boulud through French classics with a twist, like sautéed foie gras scallops with citrus, beet, and tamarind sauce.—Cathay Che

Open Tuesdays through Sundays 5:30 pm to 1 am. Closed September and October.
