We enjoy the bistro while on the island. Staff is friendly and the food is really good. The only downside is the location. They are on a corner and sometimes it is a bit noisy from outside traffic. If one doesn't mind that, then you will enjoy it. If you are looking for a quiet romantic spot, this may not... More

We visit St. Martin approximately every two years and each time dinner at Bistrot Caraibes is a must...we are never disappointed. This time it was a mother/daughter dinner...as anticipated, the presentation, the service and the food were perfect. Making choices from this varied menu was a challenge as the descriptions were so appealing...and the dishes brought to other tables confirmed... More

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
