Le Tamarin restaurant

Monday, March 30th, 2015

Dining in St. Barth continues to outshine other destinations.

Le Tamarin makes its mark.

Le Tamarin restaurant has re-opened under new ownership and is receiving rave reviews. Located by the road to Saline Beach, Paco and his wife Julie transformed this dining venue into a lush tropical setting with lily ponds, palm trees and of course the famous Tamarind tree.

Steve and I have already dined there several times and loved the whole experience. Excellent food, top service, and dreamy ambience add up to an evening to remember.

Try it for lunch as well. Salads, sandwiches and main courses featuring fresh fish, chicken and beef hit the spot after a morning of sunning and swimming at Saline Beach. Enjoy outdoor seating, a game of ping pong and the parrots that have always been the signature mascots going back to days when Cat owned the restaurant.

You must also go for dinner. The setting completely changes when the sun goes down.

We loved the Pavé de Thon, the Cabillaud (codfish) with butter sauce and the fondant au chocolat to name a few.

The Tamarind tree produces a pod-like fruit that is often used in cooking. Paco came up with a refreshing Rhum Tamarind. Let me know what you think of it.
