Great food, good service and not a safe place to be at nite. High crime area. Don't wear jewelry or bring lots of cash to marina. Be careful where you park.Charming restaurant.

My husband and I are celebrating our 4 year wedding anniversary down in St. Maarten and we had heard about this restaurant on the French side of the island through Tripadvisor. There is a reason it is rated the #1 restaurant in Marigot! The restaurant has a great ambience, tucked away in the marina with beautiful views from the waterfront... More

I think I ended up eating here four times during my stay in St. Martin, and each time was pretty much perfect. Twice I dined alone, and twice with a friend, and they took great care of us each time. Food was impeccable (shrimp with linguini and lobster provencal were standouts, and the salad that included the goat cheese toasted... More

We were four and had the best dinner ever, the service was amazing and the food incredible. This is the place to be, whenever we come back we will have a meal over here. Forget most of the other places, here its a bit more fromthe cost, but all is worth it.

Visited Tropicana for lunch on 11/5 with my wife and 3 kids. It was a bit tucked away from the ferry port, but worth the hunt. I wanted to visit after reading about it in the Blanchard's book "A Trip to the Beach." Obviously it's highly rated by Tripadvisor and Frommers as well. I loved the colors of the table... More

The menu is very great, a lot of choices. The location is also perfect, beside the water, in front of a marina. The owner is also so kind!! Definitly a must in St-Marteen!

fantastic menu, with wonderful attention from the owner/manager/chef. wine selection by far is one of the best on the island. hang around long enough, and you get a local street acrobat who was wonderfully entertaining. Dessert is a must: everyone had something different, and everyone was pleased. yes, a little pricey, but worth it.

I was there first in 1999 when our cruise ship stopped in St Maarten. Every dinning staff member on the ship kept saying Tropicana was one of the best restaurant in the Caribbean... and they were right. Again last fall when we revisited Marigot when the our ship, Oasis of the Sea, stopped for a day... and we knew EXACTLY... More

We had dinner water-side at the Tropicana. This was an amaziing French restaurant. The 4 of us at our table totally enjoyed our entrees. The wait staff was so friendly and one of the owners took the time to visit with each table. Since they were not too busy (off season) the nite we went, both the waitress and owner... More
