This restaurant and bar is set on the second story of a clapboard-sided building overlooking the water in the downtown center of Speightstown. Its exterior is painted a shade of mango pink. The owners, Montréal natives Gail and Pierre Spenard, buy the catch of the day directly from the fishermen's boats. The venue is whimsical and airy, and the food is exceedingly good. The seasonings aren't as overpowering as they are at many other Bajan restaurants. Appetizers might include French-style chicken liver pâté, ocean crêpes with dill sauce, smoked salmon, and pumpkin soup. As a main course, you might opt for the 8-ounce U.S. tenderloin steak cooked to perfection or the fall-off-the-bone barbecued baby back ribs, or any of several kinds of local fish prepared the way you want it. Top off your meal with passion fruit cheesecake or star-fruit torte. There's live entertainment on some nights.
