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

We had our tour guide make us reservations so we could sit by the Marina. We arrived a little late and they still held our table for us. We didn't realize there was so much food, so we didn't save room for dessert (should have made room--haha). I had a wonderful escargot with puff pastry appetizer along with a wonderful... More

I agree with the reviewers who wrote that it is unfortunate that Tropicana is listed #1 in Marigot. We have been here for a month, with many a splendid meal (food and service). Tonight was not one of those experiences. If it is really busy, I advise you to find somewhere else to eat. As another reviewer said, "They have... More

This is a must do restaurant to experience on St. Maarten! We did not have a reservation, so we had to wait, and we were very glad that we did. The other restaurants next to this place are dead compared to the activity at this place!!! Once you sit down, you see why. The service was friendly and efficient. The... More
