In the green Pointe-Noire Valley on the site of a coffee plantation, this restaurant is one of Guadeloupe's dining secrets. It is the domain of Bernadette Hayot-Beauzelin, who grows the produce and herbs used in many of her nouvelle Creole dishes. Ms. Hayot-Beauzelin welcomes you into her home, which was constructed in 1764, years after Louis XIV sent the first coffee plant to Guadeloupe in 1721.
Don't expect a menu -- you'll be told what the kitchen prepared that day. Starting in the early morning, Ms. Hayot-Beauzelin gathers the fresh fruits and vegetables that make her meals so special -- everything from tomatoes and bananas to passion fruit and avocados. Your main course might be a delectable smoked duck served with some Pan-Asian sauce that tastes of ginger, with side dishes of fries (cut like french fries) from the breadfruit tree and pumpkin purée.
