A cosy chic Sensory experience awaits..


Welcome to Bonito! A casual and chic family restaurant with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. We want you to consider Bonito a “second home.” Located in a beautiful traditional wood dwelling laid on the hillside, the building was originally a large private beach house designed to guests feel comfortable, by themselves, or with family and friends. Bonito’s menu is an image of its leaders and their team: the cuisine is French, with spiced flavors directly from South America, and of course fish is especially honored.  Guests of Bonito are also guaranteed to enjoy the stunning views of the Caribbean Sea and its fabulous sunset …


In Bonito, the service is efficient and professional, but also inventive and relaxed.  General Manager Nicolas Gicquel, do not forget that the customer is there primarily to eat and have a pleasurable time. Our philosophy, which we call “Bonito spirit” is that relaxation and well-being come first! You can consider Bonito as an extension of your home. Whether you are a newcomer or an “habitué”, our experienced servers have been with us for years and always welcome you with personalized service. They are there to put you at ease and take care of you. And of course … they are there to meet your every need!


That same “Bonito spirit” is also found in the kitchen with no less than seven specialty cooks, led by our Executive Chef Laurent Cantineaux and Chef de Cuisine Aurélien Rouille, who will meticulously prepare our iconic dishes for you with love and care. Bonito is the quintessential fusion of South America cuisine with French gastronomy that is a “marriage on the plate” of ingredients, flavors and very specific traditions. Our “ ceviches”, “tiraditos” and “Anticuchos”are prepared in the Peruvian way and have well-deserved places on our menu. Bonito also offers delicious meats cooked to perfection on our charcoal grill, a wide range of salads and homemade pastries and desserts. The menu is extensive and the ingredients are of superior quality, because Laurent and Aurélien have only one goal… to satisfy you!


A special energy reigns in Bonito, a “je ne sais quoi” that makes you feel welcome. The atmosphere is warm and inviting; “laid-back luxury” is the key phrase. The music of Dj Sébastien Roche enhances the atmosphere and helps you enjoy your evening. Each song is selected with as much care as one would choose a fine wine. He has the gift to seamlessly change the mood based on the guests and to fade into the background and be forgotten! The ambiance of Bonito is just … indescribable. Whether at your table, the bar or terrace, it cannot be explained by mere words. It is an experience to be lived … whether you are with friends, family, or alone.


Bonito’s Bar is relaxed, and encourages sharing and discovery. Open every evening, the bar instantly transports you to another place. The location presents the perfect opportunity for everyone to benefit from the extraordinary ocean views and spectacular “Bonito Sunsets!”. Behind the bar are Johann Grillitsch , bar manager & Jimmy cassar , head mixologist to lead our new bar team on the art of mixing. Their passion for the natural products and the local flavors combined with their love for noble spirits, make every cocktail an experience. Their happiness & smiles will make yourself feel like at home!

Nous étions venus entre amis il y a qques mois au Bonito et nous avions été très déçus du service qui était catastrophique en janvier , ce que nous avions mange été tellement délicieux je me suis laisser tentée par une seconde fois et la surprise !!! Service excellent, cocktails top niveau, la bouffe toujours aussi parfaite… l’ambiance est incroyable dans ce resto. Merci pour tout, nous reviendrons et Le recommanderont vivement !

La cuisine est excellente au Bonito et les serveurs adorables… mais on aime particulièrement la décoration qui nous fait sentir dans une maison de vacances en bord de mer avec une magnifique vue sur la baie. Un moment inoubliable!

We had dinner here on a Saturday night, and it couldn’t have been nicer. Bonito is our #1 pick for St Barth. The food was outstanding (the octopus ceviche was out of this world), the staff couldn’t have been any nicer, and the restaurant is just beautiful. Of course it’s expensive, but the whole experience was worth it!
