Pacri – the first restaurant on St Barth's to import fresh supplies from Europe, is now taking up residence at the recently refurbished Taiwana hotel with the largest beach on its doorstep. With its film-set good looks and impressive views toward the outlying Caribbean islands, Flamands Bay is a romantic setting relatively untrodden by island visitors. In terms of scale, the new dining room is significantly larger than the venue of old, made all the more spacious with a pitched-beam ceiling and huge glass panels encompassing the open-plan space. A neutral theme, complimented by mahogany woods and planted orchids at each table set the precedent for a refined, yet romantic evening.
Italian authenticity prevails at Pacri, with dishes inspired by family recipes handed down to Pascal Ramette by his grandmother. Entrees comprise a variety of fusion dishes, including octopus with grilled zucchini – flown in especially from Ramette's homeland. Puglian Buratta and Seafood Carpaccio are also firm favourites. Chef Vincenzo Arvicazo is accredited with the reinvention of Pacri's ever-changing daily menu, taking inspiration from the classic staples of Caribbean cuisine, as well as the abundance of organic herbs and vegetables grown wild in the hills nearby. As you'd expect, there are a number of hearty pasta dishes including the seasonal Mussels alla Marinara and Truffle Ravioli enhanced with arugula, paired with a select choice of wines imported from the Veneto and Tuscany.
Opening Hours: Nightly, 7pm -11pm from 31 October to 15 August
