    Nancy, the restaurant that you are thinking of was probably La Frégate at the Hotel Baie des Flamands. It was just up the beach from the Cheval Blanc site.

    Julianne, Maison Blanc would have been maybe 1984/1985 I think. I never ate there, but I remember passing by.

    Maureen, was the restaurant called Le Flamboyant?
