Fantastic waterside restaurant

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 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 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

This remains the finest dining experience in St. Martin. And now with improved lighting and security, I feel much safer when parking on Mario's side of the bridge. Mario's culinary skills are extraordinary!! And a table on the canal is a real plus. Thanks to Bobby and Cedrick for excellent service!

This is our "anniversary" go to restaurant in Saint Maarten. The restaurant is on the canal water front. The boats go by, the fish are swimming, the atmosphere is wonderful, the decor is great, the staff is friendly and the food is wonderful! As long as we return to Saint Maarten we will return to our "romantic anniversary" getaway!

Had a late dinner here on April 11 on our last night in St Martin. I had the Shrimp w/ crab risotto and it was so good! The shrimp and scallops were cooked perfectly! Everything my companions had look good also and they were all pleased.

A friend recommended this place to us and we weren't disappointed! It was the best meal we had on the island, we even bought Chef Mario's cookbook which contained the recipes of all the food we ate. The service was excellent as well!

I chose one of the appetizers for my dinner. The combination included a crab cake and a sushi item. Sorry, I can't remember the name. It was Asian/French fusion. The result was delightful. The surroundings were beautiful. Request a table next to the water. (reservation). Don't bother going if you are in a hurry. Service was slow.
