“Number 1 French restaurant in Grand Case, St Martin”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

Beachside in Grand Case, this litle gem has it all; ambiance, spectacular and creative food and probably the most charming waitress on the island. The food is very original and creative - trigger fish, marlin, sweat breads, soups, etc. All served with great presentation. The intermezzo complimentary dishes like crusted shrimp and gazpacho were delightful and the deserts were off the charts.
Truly a do not miss!

“haute cuisine”
Reviewed 25 May 2013

This place is hard to find, it's small and doesn't look haute from the first side. But when you try the food you love it and enjoy it from the startes till deserts (we never eat deserts in any other places but in this place it must have)
The grand respect to chif !!!
