Table and doorway Auberge Gourmande, in the center of restaurant row in Grand Case, serves fine French cuisine in an intimate dining room in one of the oldest Créole houses on the island. Lovingly remodeled in subtle whites and yellows, the wood and stone of the old house harken back to a time of slower pleasures. Enjoy an evening on our terrace amid the plantings or step inside to find your favorite alcove. Our friendly and efficient staff completes the ambience required to provide you with a superb and sublime evening.

We feature fine French cuisine and are especially proud of our well stocked wine cellar offering a wide range and depth of vintages at reasonable prices.
