Fodor's Expert Review Le Plein Soleil Restaurant
Perennially popular with the chic set, Le Plein Soleil's restaurant has a smashing contemporary, creole look. But it's the inventive, beautifully executed menu that cements its well-deserved reputation. It continues to draw applause for the use of the latest techniques from France coupled with remarkable twists on local products. Take a long and leisurely lunch on the terrace, which has a hilltop sea view; by night the mood is romantic, the service fine, the music heady. Soups are like a mixed-media collage. A velouté can be the canvas for a ravioli made of foie gras or pineapple. For the evening's three-course prix-fixe dinner, a thick tuna steak often appears as a main course, but you'll always have a choice of five main courses, two of which are fresh lobster and a steak. Desserts are equally memorable.
