For a true taste of France in St Barths, make your way to Le Papillon Ivre– the island’s one and only wine bar.
This is where you can sip on a glass of your favourite French wine (the selection is unreal) and snack on fresh-made apéro dishes such as foie gras, quiche, cheeses and a charcuterie platter. There is always something deliciously sweet on the menu as well, whether it’s a clafoutis tart or poached pears with chocolate sauce– great for pairing with bubbly. The casual and welcoming atmosphere keeps the focus on the wines and food, and you can show up as you are. Located only a short walk inland from Eden Rock–St Barths in the Saint-Jean district, Le Papillon Ivre is a lovely spot for a pre-dinner glass and snacks. And if you fall in love with a wine, you can take a bottle away with you from their in-house ‘wine library’ boutique. We say santé to that.
