Hideaway in St. Barth

the hideaway, st. barth, caribbean, island, restaurant, italian, foodSt. Barth is magnifique! I have heard great things about the island for years, which is why I jumped at the opportunity to present wine to various establishments there as representative for Domaine de Gourjo, a client’s vineyard in the South of France. Despite what I had heard I must say that I did not expect to fall in love with St. Barth as much as I did. My adoration has been inspired in part by its arresting natural beauty and warm island energy, but mainly by some of the amazing local places that I discovered on my trip. Especially the fabulous Hideway restaurant in St. Jean.

I found that being at The Hideaway felt a lot like eating in a friend’s kitchen, with amazing owners and staff that are not only accommodating but genuinely lovely people. Hafida, Hideaway’s charming owner, quickly became like family, with warm welcomes and always an exceptional attention to detail and service.

The food is great. Daily specials such as tagliatelle with st jacque and langoustine or mussels Provençal with pastis keep the menu interesting, and the pizzas are surprisingly delicious for a restaurant so far from NYC. And you certianly get a bang for your buck at Hideaway, with dinner for 2 with a bottle of wine costing you under $100.

Overall I love this place and recommend it to anyone. Within one visit it will feel like you’ve been coming here for years. I can’t wait to come back.
