After lunch, we walked through the Village to take pictures of the menus of the restaurants
there, in preparation for our dinner that evening. We knew there would be entertainment that evening, as well as vendors in the square, which we had never been to, so it sounded fun.
We started off on the right hand side of the square, and took pictures of the menus of all the restaurants located there, and they are presented here somewhat in order, but I’m pretty sure that Cote Plage is on the end of the square, and I think LAtelier is the last one on the far right
Latrattoria –NO menu posted, just took a picture of the sign, to note it was there
Cote Plage—sorry for the quality of the picture, as the sun was shining on it, and it was very difficult to photograph
Yellow Sub—again, sorry for the quality of the picture
After checking out all the restaurants, we decided to check out Petit Casino. As far as I know, it is no longer owned by Bruno, formerly of LeCottage and then Dreams. For those jonesing for American junk food, they have it in spades here
…As well as a bunch of other stuff.
The store is CLEAN, air conditioned, and very well stocked.
Afterwards, we headed to Leader Price, which was on the way back toward Grand Case, on the left. It is CLEAN, air conditioned, and they have lots of cheap wines here. I love mimosas for breakfast and try to buy mini champagnes for that purpose on island, but often have problems finding them. Here at LP, I scored a champagne for 2.5E for a full sized bottle. Who cares if I throw away half the bottle!!! No pictures of LP, sorry. LP does NOT have liquor, however.
Upon arrival, we had gone to Hope Market to obtain first day supplies and got most of what we needed, including Bacardi Limon and Tanqueray. Couldn’t find coffee creamer there, which was odd. I found the store didn’t feel clean to me, no a/c, probably won’t go back. Super U is supposed to open next week in Hope Estate. I suspect once they open, Hope Market will be in trouble.
Back to the villa, and we had a couple of rain showers, and then it cleared off. We hung out in the pool for a while, before heading out to Orient Village for dinner around 6:30. I was still jonesing for pizza and since we had had a big lunch, we decided we would go to Le Piment and have pizza. Eric let me off in front of the square and drove down toward the beach to park. I wasn’t certain it wouldn’t rain again, so we requested to sit inside, although there ended up being no rain.
So much for the pizza plans! Both of us looked at the menu and the specials and decided otherwise.
I had a lovely flank steak special with au gratin potatoes
I licked the plate.
And Eric also had a special, which was pasta with cuddlefish
Afterwards they offered us a shot glass of rhum, which we enjoyed.
We knew that there would be entertainment in the square this evening, which is why we had decided to come on Friday. It was low key and volume, which allowed for easy conversation. There were a few jewelry vendors, which I checked out and wasn’t interested.
I did enjoy some prints from a local artist named Asif, and I bought 3 for $20 each. That was his original price and I didn’t try to get him to reduce it, as I enjoyed them at first sight.
I apologize for the quality of the photographs, as they don’t do them justice. May try to re-take the photos. I don’t know why, but his first one just made me laugh out loud and I had to have it.
The other two are Heineken Regatta and I plan to frame and hang them as a set.
I don’t think he has a website, although perhaps he has a Facebook page. I asked him for a card, but he did not have one.
Time to head back ‘home’, and we were back safe and sound in our villa at 8:30 PM. Boy, we are real nightowls these days!!!
