I have a craving for some tuna tartare and she would like a nice tuna steak. We are staying near Cul de Sac/Grand Case, any suggestions or favourites?

Not close to you but I have had good tuna at Skipjacks in Simpson Bay.

Skipjacks do a great job. I've had equal or better numerous times a fig. Extreamly good and not expensive.

Probably any restaurant in Grand Case would have both. Walk down the street and check out the menus.

I would suggest Dreams, and I would trust them to do it right.
Cheers,
Todd

You beat me to it, Todd! The tuna tartare is prepared tableside at Dreams, and it looked really delicious, although I never tried it.

I think Bistrot Caribes has tuna. Saw some on their web site just today.

And they never said or implied they were limited to where they were staying. They gave a location and while close is better, unless a specific location is requested, people do drive around the island. Perhaps they do want to eat in the area they are staying but it was not stated.

I haven't found too many places that offer tuna tartare, except as a special, and they were few and far between. I'm happy to see they have it at Dreams and will have to try it next time. I don't recall ever seeing it at Bistrot, and the only place I've had it in Grand Case was at L'Estaminet (RIP).

It was on the menu at Bistro Nu when we were there in November, if you feel like driving to Marigot.

I find that mahi-mahi tartare is an acceptable substitute for tuna, unless you really have to have tuna, and is more prevalent than tuna.

Went to Dreams yesterday and spent the day and had lunch and we were not disappointed. It was breezy and they were removng some seaweed from the beach but after a couple of hours the beach was cleaned up and there didn't seem to be more seaweed coming in.

As always lunch was wonderful! They have tuna tartar on the regular menu prepared "provencal style" accompanied by a parmesian buscui and mango guacamole.

I Thought the tuna carpaccio at SKIPJACK'S was exceptional. My over all meal, not so much, but the tuna slayed. http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserRevie...HECK_RATES_CONT

Chuck,

I will be the very first to admit my taste in foods isn't all that extravagant, but I generally do know what things are or at least have heard of them. You have me stymied on this one, so pray tell - what is parmesian buscui? I get the mango guacamole but I have never heard this term before. Ty in advance...... <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/handshake.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/handshake.gif" alt="" />

I assumed, in his speed of typing, he spelled parmesan biscuit wrong.

Thank you, and I guess this is a 'my bad' moment. I never considered buscui was meant to be biscuit and thought perhaps it was something new we should be looking to try next trip. Got it now.... <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/handshake.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/handshake.gif" alt="" />

Don't feel too bad, Chuck. I have been amazed at some of the changes to my words the built in editor on my iPad has created! Yikes - I sometimes think, instead of having a mind of its own, it has no mind at all. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/jester.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/jester.gif" alt="" />

Tuna tartare and sashimi are the same thing. The condiments offered with them are different.

Tar tar is typically chopped up and often served with other things mixed in, often an egg and spices... sashimi is sliced.
