We went for lunch and it was good, food portions are small, my steak was overcooked but the mushroom steak gravy made up for it. Husband has scallops and they didn't disappoint.

This restaurant has the most be beautiful views! Go a little early if you can, it was dark when we returned for dinner and all you could see was black. Although, the sounds of the ocean was a great backdrop to dinner! The service was great and the food was delicious! Get the creme brûlée, you won't be disappointed!

We came here on a trip recently and L'Escapade does a beautiful job with the food as well as the atmosphere in French style. The view was incredible and the service was great. The staff was VERY attentive and helped us order some things we have never tried before, and thankfully explained the Amuse Bouche to us. I was surprised... More

My wife and I had a very romantic dinner at L'Escapade. Food and service were great, we made a reservation, arrived a little early and they sat us down right away. The view is spectacular, great food overlooking the water right on the beach.....

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 the peppercorn. Price was reasonable and... 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.
