Top 3 restaurants for dinner in Grand Case!

We are 40 something year old foodies that like great food, wine, appetizers, ambiance...al Fresco dining also. Can you suggest a few restaurants to complete our four day adventure. We are thinking of staying at Hotel L'Esplanade and don't mind the walk. Also, a suggestion for an over the top special dinner by car.

Thanks,

Christine

Ed and Sandra's reviews, although great, are now 6 years old. For some fine dining in Grand Case, Le Cottage, L' Estiment (sp?), and Le Pressoir are really great. For that adventure in a car, La Vie en Rose in Marigot has excellent French food. Request a table on the balcony overlooking the water and Anguilla and there is a special rose for the lady. For lunch if you are able, try Palm Beach on Orient Beach for an excellent meal and drinks. 2 chairs and umbrella are free with meal. A very classy beach bar and restaurant. (previous owners of Kokomarina on Orient Beach). You will not be disapppointed. L'Esplanade also will not disappoint!

For over the top special dinner by car head to Temptation the ambience alone is amazing. It's located in the Atlantis Casino so afterwards if you like to gamble you can go next door.

Grand Case dining I recommend Spiga and L'estaminet. Superb!! Go to the Blue Martini for pre dinner cocktails!!

Another place by car is up by the Radisson La Locanda Wine Bar & Trattoria, great italian food!

I posted the link to E&S for the pure enjoyment of reading or re-reading, as the case may be, their outstanding restaurant reviews, even though they are dated many of the restaurants are still in operation, maybe with the same staff and owners, but in any case read them for the enjoyment value they provide.

Le Cottage gets my vote. We've never had a bad meal, and the service is always attentive and knowledgeable. Ask for a table on the porch and watch the world go by!

You're having the vacation I'm daydreaming about! I have never spent much time in Grand Case during daylight, only evenings for dinner. For dinner, I would STRONGLY recommend LeCottage and L'Estaminet. Although neither restaurant is located on the beach side, we had great seats at both places. On the water side, I have only been to La California and Il Nettuno, both of which we enjoyed, but not on the level as LeCottage et al. for sure. We're coming to paradise this year over the Fourth of July for our now annual trip. May I suggest, for your non-Grand Case choice, either Le Cigale or Sole E Luna. They both look very romantic (food looks good, too). Also, the tip about La Vie En Rose....I've been waiting 27 years to eat there. That's in Marigot. I've been reading alot about Granduca and the places at Porto Cupecoy. Yikes, I could go on and on. If you want some really good advice you can join SXM or Bust through FaceBook! It's a neat site for and by people with a special fondness for St. Martin.

Ti Bouchon in Cul de Sac was excellent too, last year., but I don't know if it would be "over the top". Love Palm Beach and its beach chairs for lunch.

As you can see there's no single answer to your question. Here's my answer from trial and error over the past dozen years. Le Pressoir (French, wonderful, expensive) and Spiga (Italian, wonderful and 1$ for 1E conversion for cash) in Grand Case. Le Ti Bouchon in Cul de Sac is currently # 1 rated on the island in TA. Temptation in Cupecoy owned and operated by native St Martin chef trained in Culinary Institute of America and finally (for lunch/cash only) Friars Cafe on Friars Beach.

I'd like to add one of our favs - Piazza Pascal - a fairly newcomer to the Grand Case scene.
