Wonderful evening before going home

We are now home in Toronto, Canada and it is - 20 C today. Wish we were back in St. Maarten! During our two week holiday we ate at many "fine" dining spots on the Island. La Villa was certainly one of the best. We had eaten at L'Auberge Gourmande next door the night before. We stopped at La... read more

Everything was perfect: food, service, atmosphere. I would give it 6 stars if I could!

Besides the spectacular, creative cuisine, attentive service and fine ambiance, my husband and I will always be grateful to Christophe and Florence for jumping to our rescue when our car was dead in the parking lot! Both worked the phones to call Hertz (no answer even on the 24-hour emergency line) and then when all else failed, called their friend,... More

We visited Grand Case from our home on Saba, to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were very excited to sample all the fabulous French cuisine. Our dinner at La Villa was superb. We enjoyed every course, but the scallop appetizer was incredible. Large, juicy, tender scallops sliced and served in a creamy, flavorful broth. The service was friendly and efficient... More

La Villa is an amazing restaurant. Everything about the restaurant deserves a 5-star rating. Service is neither rushed, nor too slow, and waiters speak good English and French. The owners, husband and wife, help out with seating and serving, but everybody seems calm and collected--everything is always under control. The food is delicious, and impeccably presented. Everything from the most... More

La Villa uses all frozen fish. They say that you can not get fresh fish on St. Martin. This is not true. Most places have fresh snapper, mahi mahi, grouper, and conch. La Villa uses canned lobster bisque. They give an exchange rate of 1 to 1. Good restaurants do not have to give a 35% on their food to... More

We go to St. Martin every year and was happily surprised to find a new restaurant. The food was so good and presented in such a beautiful way, we went there twice in one week. You must try the shrimp crusted in almond for an appetizer - so different and delicious!

Best high end restaurant in Saint Martin I have eaten at so far. Decor is lovely and food is tremendous, from the wine list to the presentation of each course. We were even given a free glass of wine and an aprtif after dinner. Price was not significantly higher than other similar restaurants in Grand Case.
