WHERE TO EAT ?
HELPFUL ADDRESSES ON ISLE OF PINES

 
 

 

(Note : Prices are a guide only. Please check them when you arrive or make a reservation.)

One of the delights of a holiday is to discover new dishes and flavours, in sometimes memorable settings. Isle of Pines is no exception. You can try a range of food from snacks in simple surroundings to sumptuous, fine French cuisine in equally sumptuous settings.

Or you might decide to do-it-yourself and camp, in which case check out our ‘services section’ for details of the bakery and general stores. There’s also a small market for fruit and vegetables twice a week, early in the morning (7-8.30am) in the village square in Vao. Be sure to take a carry-bag and mostly coins or small notes.
