    I second Jcmc...we have been bringing our 6 lb dog to St. Barths for the past 10 years and bring her everywhere we go. She is mannerly and we are discreet. We have never encountered negative reactions. Have fun!

    we've eaten many meals in france seated next to the dogue of a convive. always well behaved. adds to the charm of the french expérience culturelle. i remember being seated at one of the 2 tops pictured below at le petit marius with a great beast, practically une molosse, wedged in the space between our table and a neighboring table. pas de problème.

    It was very nice to receive positive reinforcement regarding dining & traveling with our dog. We understand that not everyone is a dog lover and are courteous of their feelings. Happy to change seats/tables if anyone complains, which has never happened. Traveling with Molly has opened up many new & positive experiences for us. Perhaps we will meet some of your dogs during our stay.

    I probably wouldn't complain to you directly. As I said before, I like dogs, but have never allowed our dog to be near the table. I do not think that dogs at the table are charming or necessary to the French experience. In fact, there are many places in the United States that prohibit dogs in restaurants.

    While I am glad that you feel your dog has been a source of "new & positive experiences" for you, just realize that there are many people who do not enjoy dogs while they are eating human food, and that many of those people would consider it rude to approach you when you had your dog with you.

    I agree that French culture is different, and I like that.
    I just don't think it requires dogs.

    I'd rather have the dogs than the smoking, but what are you going to? It's their house.

    I don't enjoy the smoking either. If the dogs were the dogs of the restaurant owner or owners, I think it might be their house, much like the cats that roam some outdoor restaurants. I think it would be nice to have the opinion(s) of some restaurant owners on this topic.

    My impression has been that too many restaurant owners have been afraid of offending (and subsequently losing) the business of those who bring their dogs to dinner with them. Little do they know that they are losing the business of other diners by allowing the dogs at the table. Either that or they just don't want to create a scene.

    Re: 7 Dinners & 6 Lunches

    I personally (as a dog lover) choose not to bring my dog to restaurants, where allowed however I certainly do not begrudge those that do, especially since European dogs tend to be much better behaved than our North American ones.
    Running a restaurant is a tough proposition with tight margins and lots of costs and stresses, especially on such a constrained island like St. Barts - therefore I feel that generally owners are too busy/too customer obliging to worry about dogs/no dogs, smoking/non smoking, they just want customers. I don't mind dogs in restaurants however there is this crazy trend in Canada and the US to certify a dog (or cat or pig - I have seen it!) as a emotional support animal and then the business owner (I am one) cannot legally keep them out of my restaurant. Funny world.

    Have fun, hope you enjoy SBH BJR!
    If you make it to Bonito - please report back, I am considering this restaurant for a splurge dinner later this month...

    We were staying near M&P (Meat and Potatoes) last trip so had dinner there and enjoyed the place and steak. I don't see it mentioned in any of the threads. Are the regulars on here turned off by the place for some reason?
