Wonderful lobster

As good as it looks, upmarket food, wine and service. The décor is lovely, it's busy so booking is recommended, we had a wonderful meal made special by the great service and fabulous staff

We went here for my birthday, because I had read that they do a wonderful job of preparing lobster, and we were not disappointed. We had an 8 pm reservation and told them we did not want to be rushed through dinner. We had our cocktails and were asked to let them know when we were ready to order. There... More

We just returned from a week in St Maarten...and while we had a lot of great food, our experience at Bistrot Carabes was by far our best. We went for dinner with another couple to celebrate my wife's birthday and had a fantastic experience. The food was delicious, the presentation was wonderful and, most importantly, the staff was warm and... More

To start off we had the escargot and beef carpaccio and all I can say was it was nothing short of amazing! Then we had smoked salmon on toast which I can honestly say was the best smoked salmon I've ever had! And for the main course we had a black pepper crusted seared tuna with a soy and spicy... More

If you've never been to Grand Case, you don't know what you're missing. This was our 3rd visit to Bistrot Caraibes...which should tell you enough. Along the strip of fine restaurants in Grand Case, Bristrot Caraibes sits along the corner, a short walk from the free public parking. The lobster well is full of the wonderful spiney lobsters waiting for... More

We ate at Bistrot Caraibes and loved it. Parking it tough so don't be surprised. If you drive, there is a lot way up the block and they will reimburse the $5 it costs. Probably better off with a taxi. We ordered two steaks, one duck and one Lobster Thermidor. There was plenty of food and it was all amazing.... More

This restaurant came highly recommended from several people we met while recently vacationing in St. Maarten. I am so glad we took them up on their suggestion. We enjoyed a wonderful meal followed by a complimentary glass of their house made ginger infused rum. Everything was delicious!. The staff took excellent care of us, in particular Nadia - she was...

My wife and myself have just returned from our ten days of vacation on the Caribbean island of St. Martin. This was our third time in a row of vacationing there. What makes St. Martin really unique is the combination of the Caribbean sea and the most exquisite cuisine all over the place. Among 30 to 40 restaurants around the... More
