To label Le Tamarin as quirky would be an understatement. Constructed around a Century-old Tamarin tree, this bohemian chillout zone has a distinctly magical ambience, and is often compared to the trendy pool-side bars beyond Ibiza's golden mile. With its latticed windows, rattan-covered chairs and contrasting décor of sunset yellow and terracotta, Le Tamarin takes more than a little inspiration from vintage Morocco – although the food is anything but. The main dining room is an airy space, punctuated by swathes of white fabric and creeping vines, while the adjacent lounge area provides ample space for socialites nipping by for cocktails.
For a restaurant that prides itself on offering an unfussy, almost organic ambience, the food here is surprisingly excellent. The eclectic menu places particular emphasis upon the Gustavian staples of fish and grilled meats, although you'll also find Asian and European influences. Locals swear by the Conch Ravioli and Mahi-Mahi Tartare, but if you're after something lighter, there's an excellent choice of sushi and fresh fruit salads. After dinner, enjoy a cocktail in your own reserved hammock with blissful views across the starlit Saline Bay.
Opening Hours: Lunch from 12am to 3pm; Dinner from 7pm to 11pm (10pm during low season) Closed on Tuesdays
