Where to Eat in Guadeloupe

Whether a beach snack, roadside shack, or fine dining in the rain forest, Guadeloupe’s restaurants are always a culinary treat, offering a blend of beautifully presented Creole and French specialties and understandably focusing on the freshest of seafood. Make sure you start with a rhum cocktail, and end with a delicious dessert—this is French territory, after all.

Le Rivage, specializing in Creole cuisine, is a charming place to stop for lunch on the way back from hiking Guadeloupe National Park. This casual, family-friendly establishment has a wood-floored dining room with shutters opening onto views of Bananier Beach, welcoming in a constant breeze. The local drinks are made to order. Pick your rhum of choice from the display table and sip on a ti’ punch before savoring typical plates like cod fritters, fresh lobster stuffed with spices, and goat stew.
