“Nice dinner”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Le Cottage. Fabulous wine menu...but not much help in selecting wine. Great menu...but the service was spotty to be honest. At this kind of restaurant, I would not expect our finished plates to sit in front of us for 30 mins, or need to pour our own wine or water. The food was very good. Wife and I thought we would share the escargot special...there were 3 on the plate. 3. Oh well. I can see how on another night the experience might have been better, but this night was a 'miss'.
Beautiful atmosphere, though.

“Unexpected Gem!”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

We have been coming to SXM for several years and, for some reason, never had dinner here. We stopped in on a whim and were very pleasantly surprised. We were greeted immediately by a waiter who seated us (we did not get his name). The waitress, Tanya, came right over to greet us. We ordered water and drinks which came very quickly.

We ordered starters: the escargot for my husband who says this is the best escargot he has ever tasted. I ordered, from the recommendation of the wonderful waiter, the cold soup sampler 3 samples of asparagus, beet and pumpkin soup. OH MY GOODNESS! Wonderful!

Before our starters came out, the waitress brought us a sample of a curried vegetable soup with coriander. Delicious.

For dinner, my husband had the duck plate: confit, breast, gizzard salad and a purée to go over the breast. Excellent! I had the pasta wrapped Mahi mahi. . This was in a cream sauce that was to die for! Presentation on all dishes was exquisite!!!"

The service was fabulous. It was friendly and recommendations wonderful. It was such a wonderful experience that we started talking to potential diners and were telling them to eat here as it was wonderful!

This restaurant is definitely on your list of favorites and "must eat here" when we return. Truly one of the best experiences we have had in Grand Case.

“Beautiful dinner”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

We just came back from dinner at Le Cottage. Beautiful restaurant, beautifully presented delicious food and very friendly attentive service... We have traveled all over the world, we are foodies, and have had our fair share of fine ( and simple but great, and of course, not so great) dining. We also have been on the island for the last two weeks visiting different places based on reviews and recommendations. Even though this place right now is in 6th spot in Grans Case, in my book, it's at the top of the list... We came with two small kids ( one was asleep in stroller, so I guess only count one), the staff and ( I believe it was) the owner, were super accommodating and friendly with our son, who enjoyed the dinner tremendously with his pad Thai. We all also loved the lobster bisque, escargot, sea bass and mixed grilled fish. When the soufflé came, it was just divine, and even though we were stuffed, we finished it to the last drop. Too bad we visited so late in our trip, otherwise we would come back right away! Next visit it will be first place we come to! Thanks for the wonderful evening and great food!

“Splurge Night... great meal”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Ranks right up there with the best meals we've had in Paris. Creative menu from appetizers all the way through deserts (caramel soufflé is not to be missed). Service was top notch and friendly. Great experience.

“Another wonderful meal”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Unfortunately Le Cottage was closed for the season during our last visit, so this review is for the previous April, 2013. Le Cottage is a fabulous French restaurant in Grand Case offering excellent food, service and atmosphere. We were most impressed with the food presentation. Of particular note was the care taken in ensuring that one of our fellow traveler's special dietary needs were met with utmost care.
