A Germanopratine institution since 1932, La Rhumerie is the meeting place for all fans of the West Indies. Gather for lunch and dinner in this “House of the West Indies” with its ­Creole-flavoured homemade dishes. Whatever the occasion, a feast for the taste buds is guaranteed! West Indian brasserie at lunch time where the inventive and traditional cooking enhances the menus of the day (stuffed crab, colombo and marinated pan-fried white fish, stir-fried pork with pineapple in dark rum and dacheene mash…) and in the evening a cosy atmosphere and a specialist bar with its guest star (you guessed it…) the rum! Friends, loving couples, you will have your eyes fixed on the exotic menu… because it is worth the detour: you’ll find rums of exception, agricultural rums and rums from around the world, no less than 75 references, some of which are rare, like the Clément 1970 or the Bally 1975. For all fans of exotic tastes, this place is a must! In addition to the classic cocktails Ti Punch, Planteur, Mango Mojito, Jungle Cookie or Hemingway, new creations are added to the menu each week. The drink tasting is accompanied by homemade Caribbean-style codfish fritters, spicy pureed avocado with codfish or the dish of the night. Finally, late at night you must not forget the traditional “La Partante”, i.e. “last one for the road”, to give you a boost to prepare for take-off the next morning!
