Mario's Bistro is tucked away from all the hotels and beaches. You have to drive or take a taxi there and that means that food has to be really good. Really good! Highly recommend!

We came at the suggestion of some friends and are so glad that we did. From the first bite of crusty warm French bread to the last taste of coffee profiteroles with Bailey's and fudge, Mario's was truly a phenomenal meal. For apps we had an Asian inspired crab cake with a lobster concoction that was heavenly and a creamy... More

A beautiful spot right beside the water. Service & food impeccable. Friendly service and they pour your wine for you. It is on a separate table.

Visit this restaurant every year when I goto St Martin,they treat you like family.The food is one of the best on the island.I've even been there twice during a two week vacation.Mussels in red sauce is delicious,be careful though because it's not on the menu every night. Mussels are shipped from France.You must try this restaurant.

We've gone here a number of times over the years and the food and atmosphere remains consistently great! The owners are always hospitable and always leave wanting more. The atmosphere is upscale casual, while dining on the water. A little hard to find, so always best to take a cab.

Mario's Bistro is a fairly priced restaurant with fantastic food. We went for the first time two years ago and we visit all the time! Their wide variety of food is perfect for families with picky children. Good atmosphere and not too expensive.

My wife and I visited Mario's in July 2014 with another couple for our 10th anniversary dinner. The food, atmosphere, and service for all above our expectations. Our goal was to have a great French meal and Mario's exceeded that goal. The best part was at the menu had items on it that were different and tasted amazing. My wife... More

My family has been coming to st Maarten every year since 2001. Everyone says " you have to go to Mario's" and while it was fine I was expecting better based on reputation. Salads wed excellent. Main course was good. Dessert was underwhelming. Staff was very friendly and was perhaps the highlight of the evening.
