You have to try the foie gras trio

My husband and I ate here for our last dinner in Grand Case after taking a break from the fine dining and eating at the lolos nearby for a few days. Ambiance is very good, with a few tables overlooking the beach. We had an inside table, but it was still nice. I ordered the foie gras trio, which... read more

I don't usually write reviews, but felt this was necessary because Trip Advisor has it underrated. it is as good as three in the top 10 that we also visited. Great service, presentation and taste!

We found reasonable food and not bad service. But the cost benefit was unbalanced. The owners were kind and nice. The view of the bay is really nice. I would probably not go back.

Pros: Located in historic Grand Case the restaurant is the right side of the road and boasts great choices in seafood, wine and fine dining. The staff is professional and really just exceptional at providing service. I had a file mignon, bordeaux wine and Caesar salad and it was the best I have ever tasted! Price is reasonable for the...

My family and I had a wonderful dining experience. The food was great and the staff was wonderful. Would definitely return. Fine dining with a mid range price.

Okay, this was in fact the ONLY place we ate while in St Martin for the day, but it was picked after first : reading up that the Grand Case was "the" eats place, and second: looking for something on the beach with a menu that show cased fish and french. We got both. I had a wonderful cold froi... More

Initial greeting when we walked in was quite warm and friendly. We arrived just before sunset and the place was quite empty for a Saturday. When we told them that we were only having drinks and appetizer we felt there mood changed. It felt like that wasn't good enough. Service then began to feel intrusive. Are you sure you don't...

Another of the 2 restaurants that we liked so much that we dined there twice during our 12 days in St. Maartin. The service was attentive but not intrusive. We started our meal with their blue cheese topped broiled mussels. We like mussels and order them regularly. These were amazing. I have never seen such large mussels. Having them prepared... More

Best seafood meal we had on the island. Get the mussels and shrimp. The presentation is impressive. The view is on the water and you get a front row seat to sunset. Parking is tough but go early and there is a free lot at the north end of town.
