The Hideaway, Chez Andy
The Hideaway, with its renowned “warm beer, corked wine, and view of the car park,” is the overwhelming choice for the best restaurant value on St. Barths. Dining at the Hideaway is always a fun and lively experience thanks to the extremely gregarious Andy Hall and his staff.
After winning the Hideaway in a card game, Andy scoured maximum security prisons and mental institutions all over the world to find staff with the qualities to make his customers feel relaxed and at home.
Being English, Andy has carried on a cultural tradition of serving corked wine, warm beer and lousy food, something very hard to find in St. Barths. He also prides himself with a fine view of the car park.
Named after the spiny Caribbean lobster, Restaurant La Langouste is open every day for lunch and dinner and serves wonderful, simply prepared food, including its famous grilled lobster.

The grilled Caribbean lobster is the star of the menu. It is served with and complemented by a number of side dishes that have a distinct island character.
