Astrolabe was recommended to us by Moune and Dominique from Cote Chic Villas... And what a fabulous recommendation it was!!! It is a very refined and chic restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere, coupled with an absolutely delightful cuisine. The dishes were surpurb - full of flavour with great texture and were very filling. The team were wonderful to deal with... More

We've been dining at the L'Astrolabe at the Esmeralda Resort for many years now. We will dine there the next time we go to St. Martin. It's just a great restaurant - no other way to describe it. The food is delectable, the service top-notch and the ambience, well, just down right "sweet" in the modern sense of the word!... More

We have been coming to L'Astrolabe for about 10 years now. It is absolutely on our list of top 5 restaurants that we have been to...USA, Europe, Mexico and all over St. Martin. Thomas and Chris are masters at making you feel welcome and special. But, as cordial as they are, it's the delicious food that keeps us coming back... More

During our 10-day stay on St. Maarten we had many diners in different venues among most known fine dining restaurants in Grand Case. However, our diner in Astolable was absolutely the best experience on the Island of Sint Maarten. The service is really what you expect from such a restaurant. Food was great. Worth the ride for a cosy dinner!

If you are looking for some of the best French cuisine prepared to perfection, you will want to try L'Astrolabe. Poolside dining adds to the romance. The food is unparalleled and the presentation is fit for the highest level gastronomical publication. You won't be disappointed. The staff makes you feel like you are coming home. We know what we like... More

I have probably reviewed Astolabe before as we frequently stay at Esmeralda Resort. This time we had dinner there on a Saturday night. All three of us had the boullaibasse. It was delicious and I would not hestitate to return to have it again. Astrolabe also does a surf and turf night (Fridays, I think) with live music by Shine.... More

While some of the food was good, the portions were small and overall we were very disappointed. 200$ for two of us to have dinner. Not worth it.

In between too casual and too classy there is a zone where dining is comfortably classy and delightful without pretense or stodginess. The best of these spaces I know is the one created at L'Astrolabe in St. Martin. There is pleasure infused in the look of the tables, the room and poolside, the art that decorates the walls and the... More
