Review Tropicana? "absurd" and "silly": "A Piercing Glance Into The Obvious" Everyone knows that this is a great French Restaurant catering to worldly, highly discriminating diners. The ever-present, omnipotent, -- Christof, magically orchestrates the dining room with gastronomic knowledge, skill and "dedication" only understood by Greek monks. He is blessed with an effervescent personality and a self-evident love of his... More

Wow, the past reviews did not do this outstanding find justice. The food was top rate and this was hands down the best restaurant I dined in my 8 day stay in St. Martin. First of all it's tucked in off of an inland, spectacular setting, the service stood out and the food was more than perfect. Don't miss this... More

Best food and best service. First of all, we were welcomed in French by a gentleman. What is the owner? We don't know. We checked the menu in front and we chat a little and he offered us help with the menu. We decided to try it. My husband took the duck salad and I decided to try the salmon... More

My brother-in-law, his wife, my wife, & I had lunch here on a beautiful, sunny afternoon on Wednesday 7/2. We sat outside at the rail overlooking the harbor, with a colorful overhead canopy extended fully to provide all four of us with comfortable shade. The gentle breeze, lovely surrounding shops/restaurants, & yachts made the setting perfect! I had read about... More

What an amazing place! Great location on the inner harbor. Service was so warm by all the staffers and the food was super creative and delicious. Loved the pasta with vegetables and pesto and the pasta carbonara as well as rack of lamb. The desserts are beautiful, tried the special chocolate orange dessert and profiteroles. Nothing on the island compares.

This is a wonderful restaurant located right on the water in the Marigot marina. (It's next door to the La Casa del Habano cigar shop if you're looking for a genuine Cuban cigar, although the shop closes quite early- 1400 when we were there.) It was raining on the day we visited the Tropicana, so there was very little foot... More

We learned of this fine restaurant on this site. We were celebrating a special occasion and favor big lunches over big dinners. We were thrilled totally with the service (owner/manager?), our lunch choices. Mine was the Seafood Taboule special of the day. The presentation was lovely, the portion large and the taste wonderful. There was a special desert offered, but... More

We used to go to Tropicana for dinner each trip to SXM. Had such a disappointing experience 4 years ago that we had not been since. Decided to try again this year and are so very glad we did. The food was delicious. More importantly, the staff was inviting and the service to us Americans was warm. We will go... More
