Ambiance Welcome to Bonito Saint-Barth!... Formerly La Mandala, this restaurant has undergone a total renovation, showcasing a completely new space and design and a view of the harbor to dazzle you. The ambiance is like a beach house : Sophisticated, cozy, casual, and contemporary. Bonito's dining room is what happens when you crossbreed a luxury beach villa with an intimate living room setting. This multi-cultural restaurant brings a new concept to eating out, with open kitchen, and world-inspired influences around the cocktails and ceviche bars.

Specialties Bold food, Chef Laurent's culinary style features bold tastes informed by 10 years spent living in Venezuela. Today, his French cuisine has a decidedly South American flavor, a perfect blend of food culture and taste. A la carte, Bonito's menu features fresh Caribbean seafood, stews, and salads.


Cantineaux's lust for travel and taste has given him a unique perspective as a chef. After working in some of France's most celebrated Michelin-starred restaurants, Troisgros in Roanne and Guy Savoie in Paris, the Parisian chef crossed the Atlantic and brought his French style to New York, where he worked at Daniel's in New York as sous-chef, in a 5-year collaboration with owner Daniel Boulud. His next culinary exploit was as the executive chef at Cafe Atlantique in Caracas, Venezuela.

Now, he is in the Caribbean, adding his culinary skill and reputation to St. Barth's culinary scene. Today, he practices his profession in Saint Barth with savoir-faire and passion, and was influential in the recent opening of JUVIA in Miami.
