This was our second visit to Bistrot Caraibes, and once again, it did not disappoint. Service is attentive; neither too brisk nor annoyingly slow, as can sometimes be the case in the Caribbean. Although a little pricey, I felt like we were getting what we paid for. My St. Jacques were perfectly cooked, and just the right portion size to... More

I don't have time to write a long review and everything I'm going to write is just a rehash of everyone else's reviews. But go for the Lobster Thermidor! I've eaten hundreds if not a thousand pound of lobster in my life and I must say I like this version the most! It's absolutely RICH and fantastic so you don't... More

We ordered 3lb lobster & 1 soup to share. We drank water (6.50 for the bottle of water) and our total with tip was over $120. Yes, the food was good, but nothing that stood out from other places on the island. Pricey for no reason really.

My wife and I enjoyed an excellent meal here and the service was first class, which we thought at first was perhaps influenced a little by the apartment we were staying in having the same owners but we noticed as the evening went on that everyone seemed to receive the same enthusiastic welcome! It was pricey (to an Englishman) but... More

My wife and I had Eggplant Bavarios & the sautéed snails for appetizers. For the mains we shared their smallest lobster and the fisherman's platter. We were too stuffed for desert - the lobsters in the Caribbean are large (our lobster was a bit over 3 lbs). The appetizers were very good but the mains were average. The lobster and... More

After reading many positive reviews, we decided to have dinner at Bistro Caraibes. We arrived without a reservation around 8:00 pm on a Sunday night and had no problem getting a table. The hostess/server was more than happy to seat us in a cozy table in a nook. I browsed the wine list and ended up selecting a bottle of... More

This is by far the best restaurant on St. Martin. Snails in mushroom sauce are to die for. Cannot wait to go back there and try their lobster.

Really a nice place! Very friendly and polite service. The food is fantastic. I had a lobster bisque soup and beef tenderloin with Duck liver. It was delicious . My husband had a French onion soup and veal scallopini and it was also very good. Don't miss the desserts, as they are beyond delicious!
