We had heard from family that this restaurant was THE place to eat. We had superb food, good service, and a nice view. One of the best meals we've had in this part of the Caribbean.

Very good food and nice Service, they don't do cocktails, they should do! We were sitting outside and get wet, when it starts raining and we had to move inside the restaurant.

Spent 8 days in St Thomas and then St Martin and our dinner at Tropicana probably tied for best dinner. Attentive, friendly service w/ great view. We had several courses- Salmon trio, escargot, lobster bisque, french onion soup and for dinner lobster and the Monk Fish. All very good. Loved the escargot in Puff pastry and my wife loved her...

every time we trsvel to St Maarten we have a lunch at TRopicana. The food and service are impecible snd the specials are always interesting and rewarding. If you arrive in Marigot in the morning imedistely go to Marina Royale and make a reservation for lunch to ensure you will get a table, it is small and fills up quickly.... More

The rating on Trip Advisor were VERY high, the location picture perfect. We approached without reservations, and asked if we could have a table. A smile from the hostess, then "inside or out" was the question. Out we said to which the response was, "I have to check my book." This was 6:15, 4 tables were seated in the restaurant.... More

We had a really wonderful dinner at Tropicana. We had scouted the whole Marina earlier in the evening and were a little undecided. When we returned later, one of the outside tables had just become available so we jumped at it. Tropicana is the only restaurant with tables on the water side of the boardwalk which added a little something... More

Nice place to eat outside at the marina in Marigot. The service is friendly and fun, the food and wine choices are excellent. It is expensive, but, you do get what you pay for.

The quality of the food here was amazing. We came with friends and everyone was very pleased. I tasted a few different dishes, and all were great! The service was very friendly. Atmosphere was wonderful, on the water of the marina. It is a small restaurant, so reservations are a must.
