Set on a craggy Atlantic coastline in Saint Francois, La Rhumerie du Pirate restaurant is perched over a beautiful, wild, golden-colored beach dotted with large conch shells and battered by crashing waves. Creole dishes are served in the casual veranda-style dining rooms. In addition to the usual appetizers, there’s a special set menu with varying options for sides and desserts, named after each of the Guadeloupe islands. You can also expect all the traditional rhum cocktails here. While waiting on your meal—service can be slow when the restaurant is busy—step down to the beach and explore its beautiful shells and rocks.
