Don't miss this place if you are in St. Martin!

We love this place! When we are in St. Martin, which is every year, we end up having dinner here at least three nights. The service is outstanding and the food is excellent. The banana rum shot at the end of dinner hits the spot, too! We have never had a bad experience here and we look forward... read more

After traveling to St. Martin and dining in the Marigot Marina for 1o previous trips we were fortunate and lucky enough to give Tropicana a try and WOW (!!) we have been missing out all these years! We are a family of four with a teen, tween, and the parents. Everyone LOVED the meal and experience last year so much... More

Went here again for my wife's birthday lunch after not having been here for a while. No questions asked very nice service and the food is still fantastic.

When we were looking for Tropicana, we passed it probably 10 times. There is a very small sign and the entrance is through the building, which leads to the marina. The meal was delicious. Great service. Can't wait to be back there.

Food was amazing and so was the service. Will go back next time I'm in SXM. Got one of the specials at the advice of the waiter and was not disappointed. Very nice seating outside as well

We had an impromptu lunch at the tropicana. Looking at all the other restaurants in the harbour this one had an ere of fun. The food was some of the best French cuisine we have had. Simple yet delicious. Not to mention the selections of wines that were offered. We sat and people watched and never felt rushed. The waiter... More

Not sure where to go for dinner, we knew we couldn't go wrong with Tropicana. We decided to play it safe, and made reservations, which turned not to be necessary (this time). As an appetiser we had escargots and a salad with hot goat cheese, and as a main the sole, and tournedos (I think). We decided not to do... More

We found this place via TripAdvisor and it's a great value! I had the Safron Seafood Salad and they did not skimp on the seafood at all! It was also cooked perfectly and it was the perfect light lunch after a hike up to Fort Louis. The restaurant is not located in the immediate area of the outdoor market. It's... More

My wife and I dined here during our 10th anniversary trip. Even though we arrived late, the place was hopping and there were no tables available inside. They seated us on a table outside on the deck overlooking the water/marina. The weather was good, so we didn't mind, even though it was a little isolated from the rest of the... More

This restaurant has good French food yes but just plain good food by any standards. Their pasta carbonara is delicious as is the duck. The had a seafood item that tasted liked lobster bisque on a puff pasty that was delicious. The scallops were perfect. Desserts should not be missed but if you have to miss it then do not... More
