Amazing service, atmoshere, and fresh fish. We had the five fish and tartare appetizer. The wasabe mousse was nothing like Ive had before. I didn't enjoy the carmel souffle as much as others, but my husband did. A definite for the Grand Case traveler.

After reading the positive reviews it was with great anticipation we were looking forward to dinner in this restaurant and made reservations for 8pm. Place was crowded but we were promptly greeted, seated and then forgotten. Staff seemed rushed. Finally we were attended to but they brought the wine order for one while others waited. After another long wait they... More

Le Cottage was an unexpected, yet delightful experience in Grand Case. We had a table on the street side and the staff was attentive and helpful. By far our favorite restaurant in the small town. We went back a second time (and we were there only five days) and everyone we met felt the same way. We ran into 3... More

This spot was another suggestion from our wonderful concierge at the Westin. She has been spot on, and again our party of 4 enjoyed every bite....interesting salads, a creative vegetarian menu , plus all the other fish, beef and meat choices. Great service....lots of smiles and happy owners make for happy staff and happy dining ,

Because Grand Case has so many French restaurants, creating a memorable dinner requires effort. I think they made the effort but failed to excite. The two appetizers were complex in ingredients and preparation: one with escargots and the other with goat cheese. In retrospect they blur because they looked almost identical in how they were arranged on the plates (both... More

On an island of fabulous restaurants, this one stands out, both in quality and creativity of food presentation. To me their Lobster Bisque is their masterpiece. It comes covered with a delicate puff pastry over the top of their creamy version of this island favorite. Magnifique! For the main course, I can't get away from the Mahi Mahi covered with... More

While I had no idea that Bruno Lemoine, the previous owner of Le Cottage had opened the Fabulous Dreams at Baie Netle, I was surprised and delighted to see that Stephane was now back at the Cottage and running it with maestria! Tanya works alongside Stephane and it is a sheer pleasure to see them pampering their guests! The food... More

Save this restaurant for a special night - the food is not only the best on french St Martin but the presentation is something else. We were typical tourists and took pictures of each one of our entrees!

We started with ravioli lobster and three way goat cheese salad, beautiful and very good. The bottle/ 2010 Gigondas/ Laurus was very good. My main course was fish plate, it was very well presented but bland, my husband ordered rack of lamb was good but very greasy. We have no room for dessert, we finished the bottle of wine, which...
