Nine years ago, my wife and I first travelled to St. Martin. Being new to the island and unfamiliar with where to dine and after a full day of travel from the U.S. we just wanted to grab a quick bite. We were staying in a villa in Jardin d'Orient and decided we'd just try a beach bar on Orient... More

Food was beautifully prepared and served. Wait staff very professional in a warm attentive style. Sitting by the pool was odd for the caliber of food and service. We enjoyed our meal.

My husband and I shared a lovely dinner at L'Astrolabe earlier this week. On recommendation from Fran, Westin's #1, top notch, concierge, we decided to try this small, yet quaint restaurant located just down the way in Orient Bay. It was easy to find and we were warmly greeted by the owner, Tomas, and his staff. Tables were available outside... More

Fran, a concierge at the Westin Dawn Beach, recommended L'Astrolabe and it did not disappoint. We were four adults and two boys (9 and 10) and we were all highly satisfied with this fantastic restaurant. Every aspect - ambience, service, food, wine and decor - were superb. Our waiter, Chris, was knowledegeable and personable, especially with the boys. Thomas, the... More

Tomas does an amazing job of providing a romantic dining experience with wonderful food and great service. We miss Amin now that he bought L'Nettunno in Grand Case. Go Friday nite for the grilled lobster special and music by Shine. I think we went there three times this year. We have been going over 15 years and have never been... More

We dine here every time we come to SXM. This is probably our 5th dinner here. Thomas and his staff never disappoint. You need a reservation, they are small and in high demand. I emailed a month ahead and Thomas replied very quickly. They should be #1 on Trip Advisor, but they are a little remote, hidden in the Esmeralda... More

My wife and I stayed at the Esmeralda Resort December 12-14 2013 for two nights prior to our cruise departure. The resort is a bit remote, so walking distance to restaurants was not an option. We decided to give the L'Astrolabe a chance which is located on site. We were not disappointed. We were seated poolside on a beautiful warm... More
