    Things Remembered and No Longer There

    Back in the early 1990's there was a small family run bakery on the left hand side of the road from Colombier. We were staying in Villa Doarde and I would run down and back up for croissants and baguettes. It was open for a few years.

    So many places, Hawke . . . with memories that instantly bring smiles & laughter to me — and an occasional groan (recalling an accident when I foolishly thought it would be fun to have a motorbike for a day!). Legendary, of course, was Autour du Rocher. I also fondly remember a little boulangerie in a garden setting in L’Orient (as the area then was known). And who ever will forget La Gloriette at Grand Cul de Sac?

    La Gloriette (esp the first iteration) and Wall House are two great memories.

    Good one, Andy......that’s when the Hideaway was more like “dinner theater”
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance !

    The original Francois Plantation. Finest dining and our very first island meal. We just knew we were going to be coming back to St Barths.

    We were staying in a villa across the road from Francois Plantation. Denise's brother and wife were shocked by the prices, however it is the only time I have ordered ostrich and was pleasently suprised that it is a delicious red meat.

    Stephan Mazieres chef extraordinaire at La Gaiac restaurant at LeToiny Hotel. He won CARIBBEAN chef of the year for Relais and Chateau. And thinking of La Gaiac, add the truffle and pasta prepared in the huge Parmesan wheel (that WAS their signature dish).

    La Mandala in Gustavia with the indoor pool. And also La Sapotilier (sp?) in Gustavia and the baby turbo - to die for! Both were very special!

    So many great memories! Many of them captured in "Case et Cuisine," if you happen to see it (available Cafe Gloriette & Santa Fe).

    YES, Le Gaiac brunch!!! Spectacular fare and that view over the pool. We very much miss that.
    However, the new beach restaurant is lovely, as was the food, view and service. Want to have dinner at Le Toiny as well in the spring.

    Oh, I always wanted that pasta. Who am I kidding? I want it now.

    I know. You told me once that Roger tasted it vicariously through our posts. Wish you both had gotten to enjoy it then.

    Same here and same here. Couldn't believe how smooth they were. Amazing we managed to stumble back up the hill to the villa. More importantly, so glad we got to meet Andy before he left.

    I've read it for free many times at a certain villa. Well worth the price of admission.

    Eden Roc before it was Eden Rock. Chez Francine, Le Pelican and there was a spectacular restaurant in the hill above the tennis court by guanahani. El Sereno where we honeymooned in 1987 and of course our favorite Filao Beach.
