    Les Bananiers Lunch 1/13/2020

    We enjoyed a wonderful swim and sunning at our Villa. The morning skies were clear and sunning which made for a great morning. We enjoyed sweets this morning at the Petit Colombe bakery in Lorient. Sat at the large table outside under the covered roof area, was extremely pleasant temperatures.

    After reading Andy's daily specials on the Forum, I took the decision of Les Bananiers. The special cocktail was Mojito Royal, wow was it loaded. Got a good buzz from just 1-drink. The pork tenderloin was well prepared, very generous in portion and accompanied with a delicious mushroom sauce. The mashed potatoes were excellent. The lunch was economically priced at 13 Euros, we all splurged for dessert. Love Les Bananiers.

    Back to the Villa to do some work while the others lounge in the sun and swim and nap. Ahhhh St. Barts!

    Tonight is Al Mare at Le Sereno. Looking forward to dining and enjoying Soley perform.

    And may I add a line or two about our dinner there last night?

    We shared the flavorful Thai salad topped with shrimp.
    I had the sweetbreads with morels..incredible. Phil had the latest duck breast presentation..honey and pineapple. Both superb. Each dinner was accompanied by a vegetable medley and individual ramekins of dauphinois potatoes. And we even had dessert, tah dah. The special flotation, floating island. To die.

    We mer forum members who also seemed to enjoy their dinnersMom everything from pizzas to veal chops.

    Bananiers in addition to marvelous pizzas has wonderful dishes too.

    Surprising that Bananiers can serve a complete lunch for 13 Euros on the island! That Mojito sounds heavenly!

    Amy, did Phil really eat shrimp?

    Most shellfish. Also calamari. Just not fish other than a New York bagel with lox, smoked salmon, and cream cheese.

    It was one of Amy and/or Phil’s reviews that enticed us to first visit Les Bananiers last year. Now it’s our favorite restaurant on the island!

    Nice breeze, enough parking, room between tables, good service, very good food, good prices and value. It is one of our favorites.
