Saved THE BEST for last

We were given 4 restaurants by Fran, the concierge at The Westin. She said 3 are wonderful....but the fourth is special.....and she could t have been more correct. There were 4 of us and we all agree, best dining experience on the island. Note: Nice touch by owner....we had to wait 25 minutes... read more

Food was great! We had the appetizer special which was scallops and shrimp in a puff pastry, topped with lobster bisque- could have licked the plate clean! Wine list is good and prices are not marked up nearly as much as other restaurants. For entrees we had the steak with peppercorn sauce and sea bass stuffed with lobster. Both were... More

This is undeniably the BEST restaurant in Grand Case and on St. Maarten. We have been going back for the last 10-15yrs and have never been disappointed. This trip was NO different and we couldn't wait! I had a Great appetizer which was not on the Special menu. Shrimp, Scallops & Mushrooms in a puff pastry covered in a Lobster... More

As soon as you enter the beautiful old Creole dining room of L"Auberge Gourmande, you know you're in for something special. The setting is so picturesque, filled with old world charm and little touches that make you feel as if you had stepped back in time. Table settings were beautiful. Within minutes of us being seated, the owner came over... More

Excellent service and mouth watering steak (get the mushroom topping). Goat cheese appetizer is a great starter.

We were told this was the best restaurant in the area, and we can certainly understand! The french onion soup was magnificent.....maybe the best we've ever had--and the bowl was plenty large enough to share! They had a special of Voul Au Vent with shrimp and scallops in a phyllo pastry surrounded by lobster bisque. Between those two dishes, we... More

I’m always a bit leery of going to a restaurant that has such an established reputation for excellence. Some of these places then rest on their laurels and many have wait staff with an attitude. Fortunately, neither was true of L’Auberge! On our visit, the food was exceptional and the service was attentive and very customer-friendly. This is a small... More

I don't think I ever really "got" French food until visiting this restaurant. Just didn't understand what the big deal was. Well, now I do! This restaurant is simply glorious. The food, decor and service is outstanding. We ate there twice during our recent holiday and loved it both times. It is located on the main street in Grand Case... More

My number one favorite restaurant in Grand Case! Always end up there twice during my two week stays! From the escargot to any of the mains, whether fish, foul, game, or beef, you cannot go wrong! Every meal starts with a complementary glass of champagne ! The owner Pascal is always present, and he and the staff at the restaurant... More
