Always a Favorite!

We return here year after year and are never disappointed. Pleasant people, attentive service, attractive and relaxed surroundings and very good (but not overly fussy) food. What's not to like?

What a terrific meal and the service The Best! Even at 9 pm this little jewel was busting with activity. We started with a glass of champagne and moved on to a terrific French Chardonnay. We sampled escargot and French onion soup, both very nice. I had the Sea Bass with great sauce that I can't describe and my wife... More

Spent an amazing week eating out at restaurants on Grand Case. All were fantastic. As this was #1 rated on Trip Advisor saved it for our last night. Unfortunately I couldn't handle a big rich meal so didn't do the Lobster. It was fun watching others select theirs from the tank and the Lobster Thermidor delivered to their tables looked... More

Bistrot Caraibes had been highly recommended to us by friends, and now we understand why. Our dinners at Bistrot Caraibes were outstanding. In addition, the staff was extremely courteous and friendly. They immediately made us feel comfortable and provided us with a delightful dining experience. We enjoyed our evening so much that we chose to return the following night. The... More

The atmosphere was fantastic. Service was prompt and friendly. But the food was exceptional. We all had the Thermador lobster. Overall a great experience that I would highly recommend.

I generally do not like warm water lobster but I decided to order it at the bistro caraibe the other night. If i could have eaten the shell I would have done so. Desserts are not shabby either. The rest of the party had equally good food and a wonderful experience. 100% recommended from an very well traveled foodie

A small but totally inviting atmosphere. Attention was paid to every detail and without hovering the staff saw to all of our needs. I had the lobster Thermidor which was fabulous and my husband had a special of the night,rare tuna with a creole sauce....perfect !! I will never come to the island again without making a stop here !

My husband and I have been to St, Martin 5 times in the past 10 years, We fell in love with Bistrot Caribe and eat there every time. The service is welcoming and attentive, making us feel like special friends coming for a visit in their 'home'. The lobsters are outside in a pot to be chosen and weighed, then... More

We walked down to Grand Case from L'Esplanade to find that The main Blvd in Grand Case was blocked off and the street was packed with street vendors selling crafts, food, and beverages. You could barely get through the streets and we were regretting our decision to eat in Grand Case. However, when we arrived at Bistrot Caraibes we were... More
