Loved Bistrot Caraibes!

We have eaten at this restaurant on every trip we make to St. Martin. We consider it one of our top 5 restaurants in the world. The setting is beautiful, the service impeccable, and the food to die for. It is an absolute 5 star rating!

We returned to Bistro Caribe with a small group of friends. We found it disappointing. The food was very good, but not excellent. One member of our group had to send back his beef filet because it was not cooked as ordered. He sat and watched the rest of us eat our dinner, then when his meal was ready we... More

I was part of a group of eight and despite the small size of the restaurant we were accommodated comfortably. The waitstaff was friendly and attentive and the decor just outstanding. Everyone enjoyed their dishes and commented that it was the best they'd had so far. The salmon dish I had was perfectly prepared and delicious as was the Caesar... More

This very elegant bistro in Grand Case offers friendly professional service and great food. Just don't be fooled by the $8 lobster. That is the price of 100 grams. The smallest lobster I found in the tank was 1.3 kg, that is almost 3 pounds. It was worth the $100+ when done termidor as I ordered it, but was filling... More

Great food,reasonably priced and great service. Had the French onion sup, best one this week. Had the beef medallion, could have licked the plate. Chocolate dessert was to die for. if we were going to stay another week, we would go back to this place.

My wife and I travel to St. Matin at least once every year. A high point of each visit is always a dinner at Bistrot Caraibes. We have had the pleasure and privilege of dining at fine restaurants in many parts of the world. This one is easily in the top five, and a strong argument can be made that... More

This is our second trip to St. Martin and one of our last meals was at Bistrot Caraibes. Every night we walked by it was crowded. It is a small place with an open feel even though it is not on the water, their sister restaurant across the street is on the water, but I like the feel of Bistrot... More

There is a reason why this restaurant is so popular. You can get good food in several restaurants within a stones throw but the design and the management of the service really does set it apart. The salads are generous so you might consider splitting one. The beef carpaccio was possibly a little under seasoned but then add your own... More

Bistrot Caraibes is the perfect French dinning experience in St. Martin. The food is out of this world and the service wonderful as well! The only "negative" is its not ocean front. Still has wonderful ambiance though and the food makes up for it.
