Did not go up to see the menu as we had no cash with us, but doubt its the same menu YET as they only have a grill, not a kitchen.

We arrived on Sunday. Went to Happy Bay and enjoyed Dany's ribs. Last night we ate at Spiga. So good, as usual! Someone asked about the Catholic Church in Grand Case. It is missing half it's roof with a tarp covering it.

On Facebook.
"Do you remember Ma Doudou??
Well I'm happy to tell you that their shop in Cul de Sac has reopened its doors too smile

They still have to finish some painting but you can already visit them if you're on the island.
It's open Monday to Friday from 8am to 3pm non stop.

Oh and don't forget : Drinking Rum before 10am makes You a Pirate not an alcoholic 😂"

1000am, I’ve been living my whole life thinking it was noon. I’ll have to adjust the watch so it’s always before 1000am.


Good to hear all of this. I wish I could of dumped our cruise this week at cost and poured money into sx. Maybe this summer.

If your a pirate, drinking ma dou dou and it’s before noon, is there a limit on how many vacations you can take in a year?

I thought they were open for lunch now? If so, one would think there should be a separate menu for lunch?

We stopped at Spiga for lunch yesterday and the menu was the same as for dinner. The menu is entirely different than what is online. Everything that they serve is amazing.

Bon Appetite Cafe is opening on Kimshaw Beach in stall #1. Not the same ownership. One of the previous staff, I believe Andrew, is the owner.

You made my day! Hoping this is the same Andrew we used to see for breakfast or lunch over many years. Wonder if his brother Romaine is with him? Do you know if anything is happening with So French? Thx

That's great news about the Pinel Ferry. Any info on the status of Yellow beach and Stephen / Oliver ? I understand that Karibuni is reopening / rebuilding , but haven't seen any update on Yellow Beach in quite some time.

When we were at Pinel last Sunday, February 18, Karibuni had chairs and umbrellas out, and were serving drinks and a limited menu of food items. The rest rooms above Karibuni on hill made it through the hurricane pretty intact and were open for people to use. The gift shop had been rebuilt (smaller) and was selling the same type of stuff as before. Yellow beach was cordoned off and had nothing going on except signs of construction (I was there on a Sunday and only saw one person who appeared to be working around Yellow Beach area). Although greatly cleaned up, you still could find some broken glass in the sand both on island and in the water - one guy who was checking sand in Yellow Beach area while I was there found the top of a broken bottle which would have been very bad to step on - he also told me that he was still finding things

Didn't see any name but they had Starz Casino Uniforms on and all of the chairs on the back said Starz. No table games. Dunes had the same chairs (Starz). Love the huge sign at Starz Casino in Cupecoy it says "remodeling - opening soon.

Manager at Paradise Casino said it is under their license. Name is Ultimate Sports casino. He said they will have live Roulette, Blackjack, and Poker tables. Going through soft opening now. They may have bought chairs and uniforms from Starz which was trashed by Irma. I can't see a remodel for Starz. Should be scraped and rebuilt.

There are so many places open now I don't know how best to condense this thread...

Maybe a new thread Things NOT OPEN and closed for good. frown
