Adjacent to the beach, with a hardworking staff and a casual crowd, Le Touloulou specializes in shellfish and crayfish culled from local waters. If sea urchins or lobster are your passion, you'll find them here in abundance, prepared virtually any way you want. Other standbys include a savory, and highly ethnic, version of bébelé (cow tripe enhanced with breadfruit, dumplings, and plantains) and conch served either as fricassee or in puff pastry.
The restaurant has five very basic bungalow-style accommodations, each with air-conditioning and a small private bathroom. Double occupancy costs 55€, with or without a kitchenette. A two-bedroom bungalow, with kitchenette, suitable for up to four occupants, costs 110€. Staff here tends to be blasé, bordering on terminally lethargic, so come armed with a sense of humor. At night, the bar is transformed into the island's only dance club.
