St. Barths Restaurant: On The Rocks

We returned to the Eden Rocks Hotel and its Jean Georges restaurant, known as On the Rocks, last night. This time we were joined by two new friends, Peter and Paul, from New York. We had met them while dining at La Table de Jules, in Lorient, where they are staying. They were interesting companions for dinner and the setting over the beach, from high up in the restaurant in St-Jean, is spectacular. Jim had a first rate lobster salad to start with, and that was a dish he had not tried previously on this vacation. I had a tomato, mango and avocado salad, which was not exceptional but healthy. For my main course I enjoyed a snapper with a side dish of asparagus, while Jim had home-made raviolis with tomato sauce. But the desserts were the best items on the menu. Jim had the Moelleux au chocolat, and I had an amazing banana soufflĂ©, with bits of chocolat; it was smooth as could be, and probably the best dessert I’ve had on the island so far. Today we’re off to the beach of Grand Cul de Sac. –Dan
