Few venues can surpass the style and exclusivity of Nikki Beach, but as La Plage proves, it's not all about looks! Situated on the shoreline at the 4-star Tom Beach Hotel, the casual beachfront bar exudes a shabby-chic appeal that you can't help but find endearing. Unlike other painstakingly styled restaurants, it wasn't a deliberate conception; in fact, the faded pinks and yellows of its tables are so bleached by the Caribbean sun, it's hard to believe this was once St. Barth's most popular party hangout. Then again, it seems to work in its favour judging by the hoards who descend on Tom Beach for the monthly Baywatch and Film Noir theme nights!
Thierry de Bradereau, a stalwart restaurateur who knows more than a thing or two about native cuisine, created La Plage with a view to promoting the island's unique gastronomy. The result is an eclectic menu of both modern and traditional dishes, led by seafood and grilled specialties. Grilled favourites include langoustine with avocado, lobster dressed in aioli and sea bream enhanced with citrus and herbs. Equally appealing are the generous pasta dishes, infused with sweet peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, cured meats or shrimp. Delighting gourmands since 1983, this is the only place where you can dine alfresco warming your toes in the sand!
Opening Hours: Breakfast from 7.30am to 11am; Lunch from 12pm to 2.30pm and evening meals from 7pm to 12pm
