We have been coming to St Martin/Phillipsburg for approx. 5 years and finally decided to try Antoine's tonight. We went at approx. 7pm, we were the only table in the restaurant. The waiter greeted us and sat us immediately. It was quite warm and not much breeze but once the server realized I was hot, he turned on the fans... More

I have been visiting St Maarten for about 25 years. I have seen restaurants come and go. I am willing to try new ones but I ALWAYS find time to visit Antoine's at least once. Service is incredible, the menu is varied and consistently superb. You sit inside with open air, overlooking the beautiful blue waters of Great Bay. You... More

Looking for exceptional service and cuisine? You must go to Antoine by the sea! My husband and I, had the best "melting in your mouth, don't need a knife to cut it" steak! The atmosphere was "candle lit" romance, with faint music playing in the background. We were sitting in an open windows room, surrounded by beautiful "local art. One... More

We came here on the last night of our vacation after someone at our resort recommended it to us. The waitress was rude and short with us from the start. She seemed to purposely avoid our eye contact. I really felt as if our presence was a burden on her. The food was average at best. It was a bit... More

A restaurant recommended by our concierge. A great location on Front Street in Phillipsburg. Nice to see the sun set. The food was very good. Nothing that I could rave about but nothing I could complain about either. The proprietor came around a good deal and only seemed interested in asking the ladies of the various parties how they liked... More

I've been reading the reviews here and I'm a bit amazed. We have been going to Antoine's for years. Tonight I had the perfectly cooked duck with the cherry sauce. Crispy skin, yet the meat was not dry. My husband had the 1/2 rack of lamb, again perfectly cooked. Both came with a dollop of mashed potatoes, mashed cauliflower, carrots... More

This place was awful and I do not recommend going whatsoever! This restaurant was suggested by the concierge where we were staying. She had given us a really great and fun place to eat at the night prior, so we took her advice once again and boy..what a mistake. The restaurant is in Philipsburg and we went on a day... More

The restaurant was definitely not what I expected. The place looked some what run down. It is right on the board walk and the view is okay. We came in and the waitress was difficult to read. She seemed uninterested in serving us at first and warmed up a bit. There were three in our party and we were the... More

We were a group of 6 looking to watch the sunset while having dinner. We chose Antoine's -- what a mistake. Let me recount the adventure. We made a reservation saying we wanted to watch the sunset. Upon arrival, we were initially seated at one of the tables where that view was impossible. We were the only ones in the... More

We decided to head into Philipsburg for what we assumed would be a fun evening on the Boardwalk given the activity during the day. We were surprised to find the area desolate. Most places were closed and the whole area was a bit dark and creepy. We managed to find Antoine's open way at one end and it looked charming... More
