Fodor's Expert Review Le Petibonum
This marriage of French island funkiness and South Beach gloss is one-of-a-kind in Martinique. So is charismatic owner Guy Ferdinand, a tall Martinican with curly, blond-streaked hair, who has made this a destination restaurant in the north coast's tiny town of Carbet. Smack on the beach, it's an ideal stopover if you're visiting nearby St-Pierre. So remember to wear your swimsuit, kick off your shoes, and order a perfect mojito. You can lounge on coral rubber chaises, shaded by umbrellas, and be sprayed intermittently with a gentle, cool mist. The appetizers—blue marlin tartare or fried flying fish right from the Carbet shore—are delicious, as are main courses such as the signature jumbo crayfish in a vanilla sauce. There's lobster on Friday nights, when local bands play. It's a scene. On the first Saturday of every month, a big beach party brings in DJs and no cover.
