Julians—A Tropical French Bistro

Join us in our elegant dining room for lunch or dinner. It is our goal to provide our guests with the finest dining experience on the island.

Start your meal with Grand Mansion gazpacho and share some Burgundy escargot. For an entree, choose local favorites like spicy crayfish fritter or conch stuffed chicken breast, or a traditional French specialty like rosemary roasted lamb loin or champagne scallops. Finish with fruit and champagne, or chocolate pepper cake served with raspberry sorbet.

A range of gourmet salads, the chef’s special Q Lasagne and vegetarian dishes are always available.

As a Relais & Châteaux property we believe that food is a delicious solution for protecting our environment, respecting the hard work of our artisan producers, and acting for climate change.

The Q Cellar

Our wine cellar has been recognized as one of the best in the world with Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence. It is unrivaled in the Caribbean, offering guests an astonishing selection that has taken a lifetime to collect.

Owner Geoffrey Fieger has spared no expense in creating The Q Cellar. Handcrafted in stone, brick, and cedar wine racks, the cellar is designed in a Tuscan style, with a barrel-vault ceiling. Over 1,600 bottles of wine are protected with state-of-the-art temperature and humidity controls.

A tour through our cellar is like a visit to an art gallery, with Geoffrey Fieger’s Private Collection appealing to the most sophisticated oenophile.

As part of the Quintessence ultra-luxury experience, our guests are invited to intimate tastings in The Q Cellar, hosted by our esteemed Sommelier Albert Lake, who will help you find the best pairings to complement Chef Dominique’s cuisine.
