Ahoy there, matey!

La Rhumerie du Pirate is an institution in Saint-François. Its Creole dishes, rums, and amusing decor seduce Guadeloupeans as much as tourists.

Pull out your telescope and plot your course for Pointe des Châteaux and this colourful restaurant with its Pirates of the Caribbean atmosphere, hosted by the restaurant's very own Captain Jack Sparrow! This large wooden Creole hut has a beach-wrecked charm, as though it had somehow washed up here on its own. Inside or outside? If you get the chance then head to the huge terrace, where you will enjoy a refreshing sea breeze and panoramic views of the ocean, Marie-Galante, Les Saintes, and Petite-Terre, whose lighthouse is sometimes visible on a clear day.

Then it is time to sit down to dinner! The menu features delicious Caribbean cuisine and traditional dishes prepared by the chef, Miguel, including tuna steak, chatrou (octopus) or crayfish fricassee, and lobster. With six reasonably priced Creole set menus to choose from, you can try all of the local specialities. For dessert, the coconut flan is a great success, the coconut sorbet is exceptional and the tiramisu with old rum, sensational. For a table with a sea view, remember to book in advance.
