While the food and service were good, the view, if your table is waterfront, makes it special. Very nice dining experience but not over the top exceptional. Also a bit pricey. Staff and service were both very good.

We enjoyed a fantastic meal and had an overall great experience. Of all the restaurants in St. Maarten our waiter Michael at this restaurant was by far the best. He had a great personality and this added to a most enjoyable evening.

While the food was good, the overall experience was not. Most restaurants in Grand Case offer 1Euro = $1 pricing, L'Escapade does not! But we didn't find that out until the bill came. While 107 Euros was about right for an appetizer, a glass of wine, a rum punch and two entrees, the US $ conversion was over $140. Plus,... More

Location is great, but the meal was not. While their shrimp & snapper special was well grilled, the accompanying risotto was mucky & tasteless. Choose their neighbour Le Cottage, directly across the street for superb food at more reasonable prices served by a friendlier, more attentive wait staff.

Our first dinner here was one of the best we've had in years. Food and atmosphere were wonderful and the wine list is top-notch. Went back for an encore, but there was a table of smokers, in spite of the restaurant's ban. Even though we complained, the owner did nothing. When a man a couple tables away lit up a... More

Grand Case has many fine French restaurants, and you really can't go wrong with any on the Trip Adviser's top listed. Having dined in several however, I think L'Escapade is consistently in the top 5. ROMANTIC TIP: make reservations so that you will be dinning during the time of sunset. Ask for one of the tables in back which is... More

They have a very impressive wine list, beautiful view and great service. We ate in Grand Case 4 times last week and there are so many choices for great food I can recommend this place to anyone. The location and service stand out for me, and made it a memorable meal. We saved room for desert this time and the... More

Thanks to L'Escapade for a great dinner for a group of 10. We were all on a trip together and were supposed to have reservations elsewhere which did not pan out as planned. I approached L'Escapade and they were very gracious and made accomodations to seat the 10 of us with very little wait time. We all had a great... More

You may think that I am a picky eater, but last night I ordered a green salad which was not fresh! The green leaves of that salad were partiality brown! Disappointing. Their dish of the day was good. We also ordered the fish soup, which tasted too fishy! People are very nice.
