Food & Drink
Restaurants divide fairly neatly into generally very expensive French cuisine or the more moderate créole. There is not much evidence of the plat du jour as there would be in France. Children may find créole food rather spicy. Fast food hamburger bars are not common.
A delightful blend of French, African, and Indian influences is found...
Food in St-Barts is expensive. Expect to pay minimum US$25 for dinner per person. There are many excellent restaurants all over the island, mostly French but some Créole and Italian. Very few vegetarian options but nearly all restaurants serve seafood. Several good ones on Saint-Jean beach; the hotel restaurants are generally good.
