Yoshi is a fantastic Japanese restaurant located across the bay from Pointe-a-Pitre, in the area of Baie-Mahault on the island of Basse-Terre. They offer a wide selection of Japanese specialities, including sushi, maki, sashimi and some very inventive rolls, as well as vegetable dumpling appetizers and very affordable sake.


Guadeloupian cuisine, like much of the island's culture, is the result of a mix of influences. Creole specialities have strong French characteristics and use local spices and flavours to give dishes their unique character. Seafood features heavily on most menus, but local specialities are diverse, including things like goat and many exotic fruits. Many of the city's best restaurants are located around the Marina at Le Gosier, offering expertly prepared dishes and stunning harbour views.
