Martinique Restaurants on the web

Pretty hard to find individual Martinique restaurant websites on the web, and the usual suspects (Fodor's, Frommer's) list all the... usual suspects. Still, not a bad place to start I guess:

One restaurant consistently mentioned as being worth a visit is La Belle Epoque in Fort-de-France. We found a good article about this restaurant here.



Where to Eat In Martinique

The New York Times has a good article in their "affordable Caribbean" series about Martinique. They mention a few places in the dining section:

Eating cheaply with a weak dollar demands creativity. For lunch, try any of the family-style Creole restaurants all over the island, like Chez Malou (Fond Marie-Reine, Le Morne-Rouge; 011-596-596-524-151), a bric-a-brac-filled restaurant with dusty hardwood floors, just north of the Pitons du Carbet mountains. Order the prix fixe menu for 9 euros and your meal may include green salad with cod beignets, fricassee chicken with red beans and rice, and a banana rum flambé.

For French fast food with a Caribbean twist, check out the beachside cafes like Le Snack Shop, an open-air snack bar right on Les Salines Beach, that serves chicken sandwiches for 3.80 euros and grilled merguez with fries for 7 euros. For a late snack back in Pointe du Bout, go to Havana Café MAP (Le Village Créole, Pointe du Bout; 011-596-596-661-593), a tiny sidewalk cafe that serves savory crepes, like the 7.50-euro ham-and-cheese, until midnight.

For dinner that won't break the bank, try La Villa Créole (Anse Mitan, Les Trois Îlets; 011-596-596-660-553), an intimate colonial-style eatery with outdoor seating, paintings by local artists and live music. Salad with avocado and fresh fruit is 7 euros; coconut-crusted sea bass in curry sauce and yams purée is 15.50 euros.
