Every year we come for 2 weeks and always have lunch here a few times. The owner remembers us from the year before and the food is extraordinary. We always share a salad and entrée. The salads are amazing, very unique. And save room for dessert, best on the island! Btw, best French fries I ever had including France and... More

We had to visit Tropicana, as it was #1 on tripadvisor. It was worth every penny. Delicious food, great service. The only thing was, we couldn't find it :) There is a very small sign on the Sandy Ground street which is very easy to miss :) We will definitely visit again.

Although we were not wowed by the food, it was good. We ordered steak and the stuffed chicken. Both dishes had beautiful presentations and came with nice sauces. There was a colorful assortment of side dishes and only one - some sort of a bean dish - did not accompany the meal very well. Otherwise...kudos to the chef and staff... More

Took the Flying Fish Water Services to Tropicana for lunch. Lunch was great but the best thing was taking the Water services from Flying Fish! Mike and Michele left us right at the dock and had a short walk to Tropicana. No Parking, No Driving, it's the only way to see Marigot. I would strongly recommend that you check them... More

Every year in St Maarten we go to Tropicana. We go at least twice usually. It is always amazing. Today a group of 6 of us all had amazing food; from delicious Gaspacho to elegant Red Snapper Carpaccio and then our entries were delightful. While I seldom to dessert - this is a MUST have at Tropicana. The desserts are... More

This restaurant is situated at the royal marina in Marigot, right in town, the atmosphere is relaxing and friendly. You get to see people and boats passing by while enjoying your food. The food is good not excellent but it doesn't disappoint. Worth checking out.

The best food (I've been visiting the island 10 years ) with a great French proprietor with an amazing staff. The menu is flawless, with many items to choose from for an array of palates.

We could not ask for anything better. The appetizers, main course and dessert was awesome. Their traditional crème brulee is still the best I have ever had. You cannot ask for better service. We really enjoyed every moment at this restaurant and would recommend to anyone. We are surely looking forward to our next visit.

This was a memorable meal on our last day. We sat by the water, the service was wonderful and the food was absolutely delicious. Will definitely go back when we return to St. Martin.
