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.

Wow, what an extraordinary meal! We took our son here tonight for his 10th birthday. He loved it. We were fortunate that it was (a) a Monday night, and (2) the beginning of the low season, because the place was pretty quiet. But the service was fantastic, and the food amazing. I had the path Thai which was a tiny... More

We've been to Mario's Bistro a couple of times, and it keeps getting better. The food is spectacular and so beautifully presented, it was one of our best meals on the island. The service is so friendly and professional. The sea bass was the best I had ever had! We will continue to go back to this wonderful spot.

Sandy Ground is a sort of rough looking part of Saint Martin, nestled just past the bridge in Sandy Ground is Mario's service, atmosphere are outstanding. Meals are ample and excellent. A combination of French and Italian. Certainly worth seeking out if you are on the island.

We have been going to this restaurant for over 10 years. We just completed dinner and was impressed as ever the gazpacho our favorite was Devine I had the shrimp & scallop with clam mashed potatoes in a lobster sauce. The flavors and different textures only the plate was unique it is hard to describe how good it was. My... More
