St marteen during the off season is much more tolerable, however things do get slow for some businesses. Due to this they often times close for a couple months and our vacation happened to fall on the eve of their vacation, however we got very lucky stumbling upon the restaurant as we were walking along the marina. Best accidental meal... More

This restaurant is absolutely great! Very nice ambience and OUTSTANDING food. We were a big group, stayed in that Marina for a couple of nights while sailing the Caribbean, we ate dinner and lunch there most days as it was simply the best option in the area! Friendly service, delicious gourmet food. A must if traveling to Saint Marten and... More

We have been to St. Martin many times but never eaten at Tropicana. The staff was friendly and fun and the food was extraordinary. In fact, we returned later in our stay with some friends. We rarely visit the same restaurant twice during one vacation. It was worth it! It's a little hard to find, so call and get directions.

Review Tropicana? "absurd" and "silly": "A Piercing Glance Into The Obvious" Everyone knows that this is a great French Restaurant catering to worldly, highly discriminating diners. The ever-present, omnipotent, -- Christof, magically orchestrates the dining room with gastronomic knowledge, skill and "dedication" only understood by Greek monks. He is blessed with an effervescent personality and a self-evident love of his... More

Wow, the past reviews did not do this outstanding find justice. The food was top rate and this was hands down the best restaurant I dined in my 8 day stay in St. Martin. First of all it's tucked in off of an inland, spectacular setting, the service stood out and the food was more than perfect. Don't miss this... More

Best food and best service. First of all, we were welcomed in French by a gentleman. What is the owner? We don't know. We checked the menu in front and we chat a little and he offered us help with the menu. We decided to try it. My husband took the duck salad and I decided to try the salmon... More

My brother-in-law, his wife, my wife, & I had lunch here on a beautiful, sunny afternoon on Wednesday 7/2. We sat outside at the rail overlooking the harbor, with a colorful overhead canopy extended fully to provide all four of us with comfortable shade. The gentle breeze, lovely surrounding shops/restaurants, & yachts made the setting perfect! I had read about... More

What an amazing place! Great location on the inner harbor. Service was so warm by all the staffers and the food was super creative and delicious. Loved the pasta with vegetables and pesto and the pasta carbonara as well as rack of lamb. The desserts are beautiful, tried the special chocolate orange dessert and profiteroles. Nothing on the island compares.
