Ever since David has taken over running Santa Fé, his goal is to maintain the authenticity of this restaurant, which recently celebrated its 50th anniversary.

Many members of David’s team are professionals who have already proved themselves on the St Barth restaurant scene. Most notably is the chef, Christophe, whose cuisine is a veritable culinary melting pot, which includes lots of local ingredients.


The place itself is magical, where two terraces have extensive views of the sea and overlook neighboring islands. The ambiance is convivial and it’s the perfect place to relax and enjoy yourself.

The lunch menu features a large selection of salads, raw and grilled fish, and fresh lobster right from the tank, as well as sandwiches and burgers.


The dinner menu comprises the best of the lunch menu, along with such specialties as local fish soup, frog legs, grilled octopus, sweetbreads, fresh sole, homemade gnocchi with truffle sauce, and delicious desserts created by the pastry chef, Julien.

The chef also adds seasonal specials, as well as the popular mussels with French fries at the end of the week, depending on when they arrive from France.


In a nutshell, Santa Fé enjoys a lovely view of the ocean, constant breezes, silence punctuated by the chirping of birds, and good food. At the end of the day, it doesn’t take much to provide memorable moments at Santa Fé…

Went back twice during the past two weeks. Superb!! David, Alex and the chef will delight everyone! Not to be missed.


The food and service was fantastic and thank you for helping park the car! Loved the linguine with seafood.


I love this spot for lunch. We ate there yesterday and Emmanuel could not have been more gracious in welcoming us back once again. I cannot recommend it highly enough. The food is great, the views are beautiful and the service is very warm and charming. BTW the pear and chocolate dessert was on the menu!


j adore ce resto en plus tenu par Emmanuel c est encore mieux. d ailleurs je te souhaite une excellente année, une fan Mimi ancienne commerciale du ti gourmet, mais ça je ne devrai pas le dire. bise a toi. Mimi


Really, this could be my favorite lunch spot on St Barts. The Owner, Emmanuel is one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. Views are stunning, Just wish he'd bring back the chocolate pear dessert!
