SXM Restaurant Help Needed Now!!

Hi,

I am helping my father-in-law to plan his 30th anniversary trip to St. Maarten next month. I am having trouble finding restaurant ratings/reviews online. They enjoy fine dining and good views. All help is greatly appreciated!

I often look on traveltalkonline.com to see what people thought of particular restaurants, there are lots of repeat SXM visitors who contribute to that board.

My favorites:

Le Cottage and Spiga in Grand Case

Sol e Luna for a gorgeous setting and good food and service.

Le Gaiac for a gorgeous setting and excellent (very expensive, worth it) food.

Tai Chi for a thai-food-fixed-by-French-folks fix

Mario's Bistro, excellent food, amazing service, reservations recommended.

Hope the anniversary trip is wonderful!

Our favorita by far is l/Alabama, fine french gourmet cuisine. We love it, the food and people are wonderful and it is right on the main strip in Grand Case.

Good food and view at L'Escapade in Grand Case. Highly recommended. Fodors has restaurant reviews for St. Martin as well as Frommers.

Just back from our 20th trip to SXM...and still love it! We had a lot of really nice meals this year. My favorite was Le Chanticlair in Marigot..reserve at www.lechanticlair.com I also enjoyed many dinners in Grand Case...LeTaste Vin,Auburge Gourmand (1 euro=$1, bring cash)Le Bistro Caraibe, and Spiga(also 1 euro=$1). The Lolos are also a nice cheap lunch or dinner alternative. In Marigot, La Belle Epoque on the marina has the best salads and pizza. I have been eating there for many years. Avoid the restaurant at Bikini Beach, but the food is good at Waikiki Beach. On previous trips, I have enjoyed meals at La Plantation Hotel, Le Bistro Nu, Restaurant du Soleil, and Le Pressoir. Unfortuately, L'Alabama is not the same as it once was.....Pascal and Karin got divorced, closed the reatuant, and somebody else openned it the weekend before Christmas. Avoid it! Hope this helps. Enjoy!

Also, get some of MaDuDou's rum...it's great!
