Outstanding Food

The food is wonderful to taste and to the eye. We had both breakfast and dinner there twice each. No one had anything bad to say. And if you are a dessert person, the chocolate cake is to die for. We went back just so everyone could get there own!!! Staff made you feel so welcome and you just... read more

We had a group of 8 and not one person had a bad thing to say about their dinner any of the three nights we ate there. Chris was our waiter every night and he was not only very knowledgeable in wine but was great at dinner selections.

Service was "so-so"..i had to poor my own bottle of wine and there were only 4 tables with customers and 1 waiter who always seemed a bit hurried even though customers arrived at different times. Excellent Sea Scallops Rossini for 1 entree but the other was overcooked, dry chicken which... More

We visited this restaurant on the recommendation of a friend during our visit to St. Martin. We had a five star experience from the moment we arrived. A welcome glass of champagne and other surprises, along with a superior staff made this without a doubt the best meal I have ever experienced. This was truly a night to remember. A... More

We were recommended to L'Astrolabe after a watersports activity in Le Galion Bay. We were very early because we didn't know that they don't open until 6:30p. But we were offered a drink at the bar to wait until the kitchen opened. We were told that Tomas would take good are of us. We did the Prix Fixe meal option... More

Good food and service. Smallish French style restaurant. The pace was a little slow, but, that's expected of a French restaurant.

Astrolabe offers good French food in a nice yet relaxed setting. Their price fixe menu makes dining a bit more affordable. Do yourself a favor and dine here at least once. I think you will find the food and service enjoyable.

Someone did some clever photography for the Astrolab advertisements!!! This is a small hotel swimming pool with a few tables around the perimeter, and some clever lighting. The food was good, creative dishes attractively served, ...With a ridiculous price tag.
