Excellent Food and Service

After a week of dining in Marigot, mostly at the TA higher ranked restaurants, we finally made it to Tropicana and concluded it was the best in the city. The Gazpacho was a mix of mostly Spanish taste and a bit of pleasant French taste as well. The Lobster Bisque was simply superb, rich and... read more

Tropicana has a pleasant atmosphere, attentive wait staff and good wine. We absolutely LOVED our appetizers - I had a snapper tartare/tuna sushi dish and my wife enjoyed the french onion soup. The main dishes were good, but not great - there seemed to be too many different flavors going on in the sauce with both of our fish entrees.... More

Absolutely amazing restaurant in all ways! Escargot in creamy sauce from the same recipe for the last 28 years - truly superb. French onion soup the way it should be done. Monkfish cooked perfectly. Crime brûlée and chocolate mousse to die for. Very congenial service right on the marina. Already made reservations to go again. On our top restaurants of... More

Tropicana was recommended to us by a shop owner with whom we had dealt this day previous to our visit. He raved about Tropicana so in our quest to keep discovering new and terrific restaurants in St. Martin, we decided to try it. Upon arrival, we were promptly seated outdoors, as we had requested. Drink and dinner orders taken, amuse... More

We had a wonderful and lesiurely lunch for 7 today. It definitely made up for the disaster at Sol et Luna last night. The lobster bisque was outstanding. Everyone enjoyed their dishes and drinks and even desert today

We were staying in Simpson Bay. With the new bridge, the shortcut to Marigot made this a 15 minute ride to a French restaurant. Tropicana has been a long time favorite of many. My favorite appetizer was the carrot soup which I asked to have served cold. The Caesar salad I shared with my husband was also very good. I... More

This is a casual restaurant inside the harbor area. The food however was topnotch as good as any meal you will find in Grand Case. The wine list is extensive with very reasonable priced house wine

We never miss at least one meal at Tropicana while on SMX. It has been consistently excellent year after year. The food is beautifully prepared and delicious, the atmosphere is magical and the people who work there are special.

Called Tuesday evening to try to make reservations for Wednesday. The woman who answered told me to call back as she was busy. Sorry, that is no way to treat a potential customer! Anyways, we stopped there early Wednesday and got a reservation for noon. I told the reservation person what happened and he did not seem to care. We... More
