Best Filet mignon I've ever had in the islands!

We were brought to L'Escapade by our wonderful friend Gregory from the Westin staff, and though I usually avoid beef in the islands I decided to try the Filet Mignon. It was perfectly cooked and tender all the way through, but the three sauces that accompanied it were to die for! I especially loved... read more

We have been coming to St Maarten for over 30 years and always make a special effort to eat at La Escapade at least three times per visit. The owner, Gerald, is always there to greet us. The staff is excellent and attentive. They go 1 for 1 on U.S. to the Euro and offer a great variety on their... More

Amazing food and service with incredible ocean view. Quiet ambience with time enough to savor each morsel and moment. Elegant without pretense.

This was our first evening in St. Martin. Probably like many, we strolled the street to find what caught our fancy. The advertised lobster ravioli is what sealed the decision for me. Once seated, I found out that it was an appetizer, but they kindly allowed me to order it as an entrée. The complimentary adult beverage was a nice... More

We had eaten at this restaurant last year when we visited and were pleasantly surprised then with the great food and service. This visit was no different as we stopped by for lunch and thoroughly enjoy our dining experience once again. My wife and I love French dining and the food was near perfect. Don't miss the rissoto with sea... More

Stayed for a week in Grand Case and worked our way through most of the restaurants. It's a tough job but somebody has to do it! Unfortunately L'Escapade didn't even get close to meeting an acceptable standard for Grand Case either in terms of price, quality of food or service. You can do so much better by choosing just about... More

Amazing atmosphere - you are right on the water. Cozy, little French restaurant w amazing service. Had the Camembert app to start which was fantastic. My husband had mussels which he said were good. I had the duck for the main course which I found disappointing. The breast was fatty and tough. The leg, which was better, was very salty.... More

We ate a "late lunch" here, ordered Lobster Ravioli in bisque, and their burger. Excellent ! The ravioli was advertised as an appitizer, but with the bread and large salad accompanying the burger..plenty of food. Very well presented and carefully prepared. The view of Grand Case Beach is excellent. Worth it!

On our trip to St. Martin we stumbled upon this small restaurant along the strip in Grand Case for lunch. They have a great view of the beach and the menu had four preparations of Foi Gras so we were sold. Amazingly we were the only table in the place. The Fish soup was great and the Foi with Black...
