Savor classic French dishes with Caribbean flair at elegant restaurant Papillon, offering al fresco and indoor dining.

Frenchman Henri Charrière, named after a butterfly (papillon) tattoo on his chest, was the first convict to escape from Devil’s Island. His thrilling story is the concept behind Papillon Restaurant.

The design, décor, and especially the restrooms wink at the thirteen terrible years Papillon spent in prison in French Guyana. The menu reflects the Frenchman’s arduous journey to freedom: classic French dishes have been dusted with daring Caribbean flair.
