We were greeted by the manager of the restaurant. Very pleasant man. We were seated near the back looking out to the beach. The lighting was very dim but you could still see the beautiful scenery. The service was a bit slow but the servers would always come by to see if we needed anything while we waited for our... More

On our recent vacation to St. Martin, we walked past a number of restaurants in Grand Case on the French side of the island. The manager from this one came out to greet us and invited us in. We decided to try it and it was magnificent! We started with a Lobster Ravioli appetizer that was amazing. Our entrees were... More

L'Escapade is a romantic restaurant sitting right on the water of Grand Case Bay. Food and service were excellent. The filet mignon with bearnaise sauce was done perfectly. This is the place to go for a romantic dinner.

Not only was the view great, but the meal was excellent, probably the best we had while on the island!!! The waiter was efficient and very personable, which says a lot. Thank you for a great meal & experience.

My husband and I were walking around the main streets of Grand Case trying to find a place to eat dinner and stopped to read the outside menu at L'Espanade. The manager came over, was very friendly and invited us in. It turned out to be the best bet! The food was fantastic and the views were beautiful, overlooking the... More

Our first impression was good. We walked up to the restaurant to read the sign with the menu. The host stepped out, pointed the second sign with the specials and then retreated. No pressure to come in. We came in and had the specials which were delicious. The waitress was good as well. There are many great restaurants in Grande... More

Yesterday was our 10th anniversary. We had our hotel make the reservation, we were greeted very warmly and they knew who we were and that we are celebrating a special occasion. We were offered a great table by the water, and our first order of drinks were complememtary. The service was great and not intrusive but at the same time... More

If it's possible, we were getting tired of superlative Grand Case wining and dining. So when we chose L'Escapade for dinner (where we've dined on each of our last 4 visits to St. Martin), we were looking for comfort and got it. Delicious food and lovely service at the water's edge.

My wife and I celebrated our 40th anniversary in st martin. We too stumbled on the place while wandering the restaurant gauntlet. A young lady came out and explained their specials as we were previewing their menu. She then quietly disappeared as we continued to look over the menu. We decided to give it a try as the specials sounded... More
