So many Options

This place is a great lunch spot. It would be rated higher for Dinner but you have so many other options up the street you do not want to spend too much time eating dinner here

Great food at reasonable prices with a stunning view. Enjoy the beach at Petit Plage then walk up a few steps for a fabulous lunch then back to the beach again. Alternatively order your food from the "Beach Boy" waiter and he will bring it to you. A different experience from the "shack" type beach bars on the other island... More

The Sunset Cafe is located along the beach facing Anguilla at the Grand Case Beach Club. The ambiance is unpretentious but the overall effect of the sea, the beach and the view is really most spectacular. We visited for lunch in March. The restaurant was bustling ... I think we got the last available table for our party of four.... More

My husband and I came here on our first night in St. Martin. We were tired from a long day, not to mention a long few months at work. We were ready to relax on a patio at the beach, and Sunset Cafe had good reviews and wasn't too far from our hotel, so we decided to try it first.... More

There were several main courses on the menu that sounded good and when asked the waitress about some of the dishes she suggested that we try one each. She especially recommended the fish of the day, which was served in a saucepan with a delicious sauce. We also had the seafood gratin. Both dishes were great, very tasty with a... More

Just wild to sit and watch the planes land and takeoff right in front of you all the while with a cold beverage. Staff was friendly and courteous food was also quite good for bar food. Also watching people get blown away from jet blast is hilarious

We love to go there for the beautiful view overlooking Creole Rock, with the waves crashing on the rocks right below where you sit. They have good food for breakfast, lunch or dinner, with many daily specials. We eat there often and are always happy with our meal and service.

We were out on a windy March day at Friar's Bay and decided to celebrate our friend's birthday with our first visit to the Sunset Cafe for lunch. What a great find. Tucked far up the north end of the Grand Case shore is the Grand Case Beach Club and this fine lunch restaurant. Service was great, prices reasonable and... More

We have been to this restaurant 4 times in the last 20 years. We always enjoy the sunset and have always had a great meal. Today was mani mahi in a wonderful lobster sauce and fresh lobster. We had a good Argentinean Malbec wine and a great chocolate rock dessert. The sunset was gorgeous and the atmosphere relaxing. They were... More

I dream of the view from this restaurant....it's definitely "my happy place"! Over the years, we have had so many lovely experiences here, and this year was no exception. The location is superb, the staff members are incredibly friendly and helpful, the food is good and quite reasonably priced for Grand Case, and the atmosphere laid back and relaxed. They... More
