Rarely would eat somewhere twice in a one week vacation- but this was the place for us. Thoughtful service and food with French base. Gets busy late--go early or make reservation. Thank you to Crystal and the staff.

Had dinner here on a recent trip to St. Martin. This restaurant usually warrants a '5' - but not this time. Service was very mediocre and the food was just okay. Will we be back next time? Probably -- but hoping it has improved again by then.

We were upsold by a charming waitress, and should've had the Italian entrées, which, judging from the appearances on other diners' tables, are superior to the French offerings. The steak Camembert was competently prepared but on remarkable;my wife's cod lacked flavor; snail fritter appetizer overly breaded and drowned out flavor of snail. However, we sincerely think that the restaurant probably... More

We were looking for a reasonable option for New Year's eve dinner. This was one of the few places on Orient Bay that offered that. Crystal was so helpful and managed to fit us in for an early seating as she was totally booked out later. The food was fantastic and huge portions - I was full after the salad... More

This is a local favorite. The village has about 5 to 7 restaurants side by side and this one usually fills up quick. They are just open in the evening after the ones right on the beach close. My wife and I both enjoyed our meals and have eaten there a couple times with good meals each time.
