First Class French

Been going to this restaurant for many years. Superb food and ambiance. Everyone who knows St Martin knows Mario's Bistro. Don't miss the mussels flown in from France and the deserts. One of the pricier restaurants on the island but, worth it.

This quiet spot is situated on a canal like setting which tiny boats pass through making a dreamy setting. This is fabulous French cuisine in which all the food is so fresh and the flavors are sublime. I ate here one evening with my oldest daughter and it was a night we both will not forget...do not miss this spot... More

We celebrated my husbands 70th birthday July 8th at Mario;s Bistro. We have been coming to St Maarten for 23 years and this is our favorite restaurant. I had spoken to Chef Mario on our January visit and we also had email correspondence. I had expressed what I thought I wanted and his reply was "don't worry we have everything... More

The food was absolutely amazing with a nice atmosphere by the water where you can enjoy watching fish swim during your meal. The waiters are very pleasant but also very busy.

We had reservations and chose this for the first time because trip advisor had nice write ups on it. Parking is a challenge, nice atmosphere, plenty of tables. We had a waterside table (3 of us). We are early dinner eaters. When we arrived there was one table of six being served. Soon thereafter a couple arrived then a party... More

We have dined at Mario's Bistro several times over the years, but the last visit had been about 10 years ago. It had been one of our favorite restaurants. We saved it for our last meal on our recent trip to St Martin. Unfortunately, we were greatly disappointed. We started off with the onion soup. It is described as a... More

We literally found this restaurant by accident whilst driving around and we are so pleased that we stopped by! The service was excellent with a good choice of food. The presentation and quality were superb and we would highly recommend this restaurant.

We have been coming to Mario's Bistro since they opened approximately 15 years ago and we have never had anything but an outstanding meal there. The food is creative and presented beautifully but, most importantly, cooked to perfection. Bobby has always made excellent wine suggestions that compliment our entrees even when we order an eclectic mix of food, He also... More
