L'Astrolabe deserves many stars ! Everything perfect, and service hit the mark, no one at your elbow every second, but there when needed, without the condescension often found at spots of this caliber. The shrimp dish with crab risotto and the duck were real hits. But the real reason we tried to return on Wednesday night (when they were closed)... More

For a fixed price (47 euros at the time of our visit) you got an appetizer an entree including the lobster and a dessert. The food was very nice, the atmosphere is peaceful around the pool and they had a smooth style singer.... More

This is a unique French restaurant above Orient Bay in St. Martin. On an island of fantastic restaurants this one is clearly in the upper crust. Owner Thomas, sommelier Chris and a wait staff headed by Francoise are there to make your dining experience truly something special. We've been going there for years, and their food is consistently outstanding. And... More

When walking into Astrolabe, you feel like you're walking into a comfy, well-appointed living room at your great friend's house. Not only are you welcomed with open arms but the decor is stylish and comfortable. We went here twice on our week-long vacation because we couldn't get enough after our first visit. All of the staff is friendly and attentive,... More

Want delicious food that looks good on the plate but gives you smaller European portions? Enter Astrolabe! My experience has been positive the few times I have dined there. Staff was helpful and the food was always very good. This place does a good job....but on the French side of St Martin....most places do as well.
