Perfect dining experience!

Having been here several years ago and enjoying it so much we were sad to learn that it had closed. We found it has now opened again under new ownership, but the same wonderful quality and choices from the blackboard menu.

Ate here with our son and his fiancee, everyone had something different, and everyone enjoyed their meal immensely. Lamb, frog legs, duck, tuna, the service was superb, Jean Claude was very attentive and informative, and Jean Claude's (yes, there are two) cooking was formidable, as they say in French!

We enjoyed a fabulous dinner at Bistro Nu this evening. The steak tartar was the best I have ever had! The menu offers a wide variety of appetizers and dinners to choose from...something for everyone....My next trip to St. Martin will include a trip to Bistro Nu for lunch or dinner!!

Went to Bistro Nu last night for the third time this month! Love the new owners who do it all!, It is nice to have a chef owner preparing your food with the freshest ingredients, and always to order! It is Great Bistro/ Small Village Style French Cuisine, at a very reasonable price, especially with the strength of the USD(1E=1.05$).... More

It was a perfect night for french cuisine. I remember making a dinner reservation a few days before, but no answer so we've decided to go anyway. Our server sat us in a nice table inside (there are tables outside as well). The menus are written on small blackboards. Our server went through each line with details..i was savoring each... More

Not yet discovered by many tourists, the Bistro Nu served us what was arguably one of the best meals we had on this year's trip to St. Martin. We ordered lobster ravioli, mussels marinier, and calamari steak nicoise. The calamari steak was incredibly tender and absolutely fantastic. The lobster ravioli contained not only lobster but also a mushroom mixture that... More

My husband and I dined here a few weeks ago and loved the food, the atmosphere and the service. Jean Claude was very welcoming and explained the menu. When we arrived there was a party smoking inside, we moved outside, when they left, he aired out the restaurant and invited us back inside. The food was delicious! I had fish... More

This was an a very nice meal, served by Jean Claude and his lovely cordial staff. The sauce served with the red snapper was delicious (freshly made with lemon and served with fresh parsley) My partner ordered his favorite from the past coq au vin and although it was not served over the traditional boiled potato the flavor was exceptional,...

Aficionados of Bistro Nu will know what a superb place it was. It closed earlier this year and reopened to not great reviews during the Summer. Now it has a new chef and he's brought back some of the old staff and a menu which is recognisably a Bistro Nu menu!. Food and service are back to the classic times.... More
