Tucked in a charming tropical garden near the island’s saltworks, L’Esprit St Barth has everything of a fine dining experience in a relaxed and cosy atmosphere.

Restaurant L’Esprit

Along the road to Saline beach, the landscape is one of rough beauty, of sophisticated wildness, of infinite charm: hidden in this nature of true character, L’Esprit is a magical place. A feeling of timelessness surrounds this small yet very well-established restaurant, whose cuisine, although French in style and technique, is also inspired by St Barth’s exotic flavors and local products: fresh fish, meats and vegetables prepared in a delicate manner using classic but also surprising ingredients and flavors, with, as always, its signature touch of refinement. A rare feature of this establishment is that most of its tables are outside, so that customers can enjoy their dinner right under the stars. You will get out of the restaurant with the feeling that you’ve just woken up from a dream.


L’Esprit is currently run by Jean-Claude Dufour, who has been a chef in St Barth for the past 19 years, notably to the famous Eden Rock hotel. This talented epicurean has managed to use his traditional French training to create a fresh, elegant and extremely reliable gastronomic experience, which we are sure you will visit over and over again.
