Year after year the food remains very good. The salads are fresh, with wonderful dressings and accompaniments. The staff is friendly & accommodating. If you want to sit by the water - make a reservation. These couple of tables are generally prime real estate.

Every meal we have explodes with unexpected pleasure. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The wine selection is complete. Desserts are made on site and outstanding. And, the price is not outrageous.

We were told by friends to some here as well as reading reviews left here. We had such a great evening. We started with a fabulous appetizer - a warm crab cake with a Caesar salad in the middle, sounds weird but it's delicious. The staff was delightful and the rest of our meal was wonderful. And don't forget the... More

The restaurant was recommended by our hosts. Stopped there for lunch, they have great choice of food. Ordered daily specials, salad with tuna sashimi, cured salmon and crab, pineapple, tomatoes and plenty more was simply delicious, almost licked the plate. Can't wait to go back for dinner! The service was very nice and attentive and we got to try their... More

During a visit at Marigot, we noticed this place. Lunch was great and we had a chance to relax with friends. You will get a marina view during a stay and a staff is also helpful.

We stopped here for lunch prior to setting sail for a week. Lunch was more than delicious. I had a salad which was quite generous in size with tuna, eggs, palm hearts and more. The husband had the Devon sole with sauce so creamy yet not heavy. The desserts were well presented. Service was casual and not rushed. Most enjoyable.... More
