Fodor's Expert Review Le Rocher de Malendure
Guests may at first be attracted to the gorgeous views of dive boats going to Pigeon Island, but they return again and again for food. After climbing the worn yellow stairs, diners take a seat on the open multilevel deck for a delicious meal with those gorgeous panoramas. Fish is fresh off the boat and your best bet here, so don't hesitate to try the sushi antillaise or grilled crayfish; or better yet have these jumbos in a rich cream-and-rum-laced sauce—a two-napkin affair as the shells are left on. Select your lobster from a pool. Both servers and managers are friendly and efficient for such a busy place; one or more will be English-speaking. Make a reservation if you want the best view.
