We absolutely loved everything about our meal at Le Shambala. The service, drinks, and food were perfect and it was the best meal of our St-Maarten trip. Also, the setting of the restaurant is very nice, looking over the sea!

Recommended by the Westin concierge as one of the best restaurants in Grand Case. Maybe she was talking about the amazing view, or maybe she meant the exemplary service, but she could Not have been referencing the food.

Not as formal as you would think from the front, you eat by the beach. The food was really good and the price reasonable. Easy to find, right in Restaurant Row.

This is a beautiful setting with a fantastic view of the water and shoreline. We had an excellent meal here. My wife and I split a lobster, and the other two couples with us each had different kinds of fish, which were excellent. Some of the appetizer choices were a bit esoteric for our tastes, but overall it was a... More

Came back yesterday at Le Shambala. Food is delicious, as always.., but I found out it was even better than last time I visited. Don't miss the ceviche...and every dessert is amazing. Le Shambala is really THE PLACE to go in St-Martin!

Ok, we will come back the following night. Such a beautiful place. When we get there the following night we are seated at a... More

Started with a raw duck amuse - I was not amused. My main course was the filet of beef which I ordered rare. It arrived medium and bland. On the plus side, we had a very nice table overlooking the water and the service was efficient. Excellent wine list as well. Food was not impressive as there are many better... More
