Love the place

Every time I am in St. Maarten, Tropicana restaurant is on the top of the list of restaurants to dine at. The food is delicious, the view is incredible and the staff is super friendly

Wonderful service. Desserts are works of art & dinner was just as wonderful. Enjoyed the wine recommendation & slight breeze coming off the water. This was a recommendation from someone staying at our hotel & the best meal we had our whole week in St. Martin.

The food was very good. The prices were reasonable. The service was good but there were only two servers for the whole restaurant so they were spread pretty thin. My main concern was the surrounding area. It did not feel safe. We took a cab from hotel and straight back. Overall it was nothing special - that's why I rated... More

The escargot with puff pastry appetizer was awesome as was the other items that we ordered. We did however order too much food and weren't able to try their desserts which looked awesome as well. Service and food much better than any restaurant that I have eaten at in France.

This place was such a disappointment and almost a total buzzkill to the evening. This place is located in a deserted section where you walk through an alley to a marina. Surrounding shops are closed and most restaurants are empty. The ambience at the restaurant isn't great and the food was terrible. The food was very mushy and flavorless. The... More

My friend and I had dinner at Tropicana the first night we were in St. Martin (we were there for a long weekend from New York). The area around the marina is indeed a bit dodgy, but if you take a taxi and arrange for the driver to pick you up afterwards that won't present any problem. And the marina... More

Just had lunch at this wonderful restaurant after a little work at finding it as it is our 1st visit to St. Marten . It was excellent, great food, great service & wonderful venue. The banana rum was yummy, we will go back before we leave!!

This is the second time we've eaten at Tropicana and both times it was a great experience. Tropicana was very busy and we didn't have a reservation but they were still able to seat us for dinner. Fantastic meal, wonderful dessert, friendly and attentive staff. Sadly though, the town of Marigot seems to be losing it's appeal as a tourist... More

Tropicana continues to be our favorite restaurant in St. Martin/St. Maarten. My son and I enjoyed two fabulous meals here a few weeks back. We had lunch on the day we arrived before heading over to Anguilla and then came back over with our friend, George, with the express purpose of dining at Tropicana and it was phenomenal both times....

I had eaten here two years ago and couldn't wait to return. I had the superb goat cheese salad and the pork special. Their sauce on the meat was to die for. They also have their own personal pastry chef so make sure to leave room for dessert. It's on the pricier side of restaurants in Marigot but it's definitely... More
