We had dinner here, setting was lovely. We had the tuna tartare and was alarmed it came slightly warm. My daughter asked why it was slightly warm. The ridiculous answer came back 'we do things differently' !!! Really? Was the tuna defrosted in the microwave perhaps? The salad was great though. They should just serve people what they ask for and not give clever answers to cover mistakes.

Esprit libre
Could be a nice place but isn't. Staff tries its best but still must learn a lot. Very poor breakfast and extremely slow ( but kind) service. Rooms OK but not very clean. New Years Eve dinner of poor quality (100 Eur without drinks) consisting of a small piece of ( quite dry) lobster, a fish fillet and a piece of unchewable venison with ( milk!) chocolate sauce. At midnight a courtesy glass of so called champagne ( according to what stated on the menu). Further glasses of this "champagne " which in reality was a South African sparkling wine cost 15 Eur each.
The fact that the manager/owner some days later let understand that said evening could have been better and I couldn't contradict him induced him and his staff to ignore us at departure.

This restaurant is besides the guesthouse and a pool/lounge area.
The menu consists of a range of local dishes and French classics.
My choice went to the smoked marlin and palm hearts followed by medium rare seared tuna with rice and a light coconut curry sauce. The fish was in both cases absolutely perfect! And the fried rice was delicious with very fine vegetables and some sweet berry type fruit (not sultanas...). Only comment I could make is that the sauces were too strong for the delicate flavour of the fish. Less passion fruit in the palm heart salad and curry on the side instead of on the tuna would be my advice.
Reasonable prices, service friendly and efficient.

This is a great place for every time of the day, and caters to all tastes.
Either for brunch, lunch, dinner, or drinks, you won't be disappointed.
It's not the place to go and see crowds, but if you are out on a romantic date, or for a sex and the city night with your girlfriends, you will love it!
Occasionally they have live bands playing soft music in the background.
Esprit Libre is actually part of a pension.
The service is no more than the average service on the island, but at some point you have to let go, and accept the local standards.

The rooms are next to a horse stable and it smell very bad at night though they provide a scent burner. The receptionist/barman insist on keeping your ID although you have paid for the rooms upon check in and no one is available if u leave early (i did informed though). There is no minibar in the room!
