glace antillaise
Explanation:
The term is mostly used in its French form to retain its French "flavor." The term "Antillaise" simply means "Caribbean" or "West Indian." The ice cream itself seems to be of the rum-raisin variety, as in the following dessert:

http://www.lacreperie-usa.com/menu2.htm

"L'Antillaise: Vanilla ice cream, raisins, rum."

Other "Caribbean" ice cream varieties exist, but I am not sure if they qualify as bona fide "glace Antillaise," as in the following example:

"Caribbean Ice Cream."
