We visited Grand Case during the day, and we were dismayed to learn that most restaurants were not open for lunch. To our good fortune, Le Soleil was open. The place was operated by a very busy couple: Stephane running the kitchen, and Myriam waiting tables. The restaurant's terrace, overlooking the Caribbean, offered shade, repose, food and drink to a... More

Loved the view, friendly service and most of all the food! Lobster was perfect and the appetizer special with shrimp and scallops was incredible. Wish we had time for dessert but our 3 year old was pretty beat. The owner was great, even gave some of his daughter's stuffed toys for our son to play with when he started getting... More

We have enjoyed this restaurant at each of our visits to Saint Maarten. It is a quick drive from Simpson Bay where we stay and worth the drive. The setting and views are magnificent and food is just excellent. I had sole and my wife had shrimp brochette. I have had grilled lobster before. I highly recommend this place. Lunch... More

They squashed the French stereotype. The service was as friendly as anywhere in South Carolina and the pizza was great. The bread on the table was fresh and warm. The view was tranquil. It's rare when a restaurant beats my expectations. They did.

We stumbled across this restaurant when searching for a beach on the French side of the island. When you walk in you automatically see it's family run. Husband, wife, baby and even their dog. The view is so beautiful of the beach, the ocean and marina. We ordered the seafood salad and the chicken and beef kabob to split. The... More

I don't like to start a review with a negative. Therefore I will say the seafood cassoulet appetizer was very good that my husband and a friend had. However, my other friend had bland, dried out fish. I had lobster that was overcooked with a yummy mushroom risotto, Others had a surf and turf. The staff was lovely and it... More

We arrived in Grand Case early in the afternoon and went looking for a light lunch and glass of wine. Le Soleil more than fit the bill. lt is a small (smaller than nearly all of the Grand Case restaurants), family run restaurant, with fabulous food and magnificent open air view of Baie de Grand Case. After a lovely meal... More

I have been twice in this small restarant, run by a french couple. A pleasure: good food, beautifull place, perfect service with a smile. Entering this place - in a street that's full with resaurants is a perfect place to start or end a sailing trip. Next time I cross St Maarten: 'I'll be back'.

walking on the beach at Grand Case, we decided to have a drink. It was near lunch time and the tables at Le Soleil were set for lunch, but it is a great place to look over the beautiful bay so we asked if we could sit and just have a drink. They couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly.... More

This is a wonderful restaurant, overlooking the sea. My husband and I have been several times in the last few weeks. Totally unpretentious, you feel like family there. Stephane and Myriam do a fabulous job. The food and service are excellent. On one visit, I had the Mahi-Mahi, innovative presentation and delicious. My husband had the rabbit, very tasty. We... More
