We have had escargot in France many times but this was by far the most delicious. In addition, our main course of Shrimp and Scallops with ginger and lemongrass was delicious as well. The service was excellent and our first drink was on the house. We are going back again this week.

So, we've been experiencing the restaurants throughout the Island. We come to SXM 3x a year and tend to be the ultimate food critic. So listen up and take a read: 1> We were greeted kindly by a man who we believe could have been Richard Simmon's brother. He was hospitable and trying to get us inside the restaurant. After... More

We had an excellent experience. We both had wine, filet mignon, coffee and desert. The view was spectacular, and our waitress was very attentive. The owner came out and spoke with us as well. Very personable. The meal was incredible and perfectly cooked- not to mention the presentation of the food was awesome. We definitely would recommend.

This was not my first time at this restaurant but it will be my last. Been traveling to st Martin for 28 years and I'm tired of some on the French side trying to take advantage. First.. I asked for belvedere and was told ok no problem. I received gray goose, it's on my bill. Second.. The food was mediocre... More

There are many places to eat in Grand Case - we just had a feeling about this restaurant!! What a feeling - best meal we ate on the island! Let's start with the service - second to none! The wine list is great with fair prices.We decided on a french pinot - very good choice. It was not too heavy... More

Our party of 5 dined here on Friday evening, one of our best meals during our stay. We were able to sit by the water, amazing sunset views. The apps and salads were all very good, and we all tried different entrees. The filet and shrimp/ scallops were the consensus favorites although all were excellent, and the risotto side was... More

Ordered lobster bisque. Tasted like dirty fishy sea water. Scallops had sand in them. Totally lost my desire to eat seafood the rest of my vacation.

We've visited St. Martin for years and somehow we'd yet to try L'Escapade till this most recent visit. It has truly been our loss not to have tried this great restaurant sooner. L'Escapade is situated just perfectly on the water in Grand Case. We liked their particular seating better than other restaurants on the same street. The service was super... More
