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.

The meal and atmosphere were amazing. Can't say enough about the food. I was there with 7 people and all of them enjoyed their meal. Probably the best meal we had in St. Maarten and that is saying something because the food in St. Maarten is fantastic pretty much everywhere.

Since coming here for the first time 3 years ago we cannot stay away. We visit St Martin once per year and always have dinner here at least twice. Magnificent food, friendly service and an atmosphere that is wonderful. We love it. Thomas and his staff are the best. Can't wait until we visit again next year.

The meal was fantastic! We started off with complimentary champagne cocktail and appetizer which was delicious. The main meal was presented beautifully and tasted awesome. Definitely would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the island

Simply excellent French food. Nice intimate setting with indoor and outdoor serving. Superb service from staff. Very decently priced gourmet food. If "six stars" where available it would have received them all. Enjoyed trilogy of Foie Gras, then Rack of Lamb and ended with Chocolat Fondant. All heavenly prepared and tasting magnificently. Like taking a bite of France - highly... More
