Spent only one beach day at Mullet, and the rest were at our BSV unit or on Orient. We went to Orient and Karl would have front row chairs ready and waiting for us. GP also had drinks ready. wink

To say that I love KKO would be an understatement. Less traffic, less cruisers. However, after having eaten lunch there previously I wasn’t looking forward to the same-same. In my opinion their menu is still a bit limited and unambitious. I loved what I had previously but wanted to explore Le Telegraphe….thus we left our towels on our chairs and walked down to the Square and center of town to have lunch.

This place is lovely. Walk right in off the beach, and you are greeted with smiles and welcomed.

Salt cod fritters with Antillean creole sauce

There are several different dining/seating/bar areas all around. While waiting for our food to arrive I wandered around snapping pictures. In one area I was laughing to myself as it seemed like an ad for Pottery Barn.

I think this was shrimp mediterranean style? Lol All I know is that I had a cheeseburger (don’t judge!) and awesome homemade pommes frites. Carol would give them 5 french fries. wink

Complimentary rhum shots. Two different flavors.

Met friends in Jordan Village at La Bodega. Entrée’s were duck, filet, and a Cuban sandwich. I was not thrilled with the place myself. Too many people smoking that I could not escape, and there was a keyboard player that was too loud for dinner conversation. There were several server errors with our order as well.

Gardens are really coming back at BSV. The family spent $40k on re-landscaping after Irma.

You will notice that it is 1/2 the total bill. So it is the average price per person. wink

Also noted that gratuity not included and tips appeciated. Suttle way of asking for one.

To bad. I didn't see any arguing, just explanations and observations.

I haven't been to La Bodega yet, but at least the presentation is nice. Le Telegraphe is definitely on my list for next trip. Very nice pictures.

Nice report, enjoy seeing them all! Love the gardens at BSV, by the way, we bought one of those palm trees for BSV after hurricane Irma. We thought it was a great gift, as we love that place!

That is so cool! You have "your" palm tree! wink

Did you get a little plaque?
