Chef Romain's reviews
Absolutely recommend. Just make sure the menu doesn’t include items you are allergic to or not to your personal taste as due to availability in St. Bart’s, items can get changed last minute.
It’s totally worth it to stay in and leave the cooking and the cleaning to a food connoisseur. A great treat!
