The owner was extremely pleasant and friendly. He explained the French menu items to us and we were both so pleased with what we received. We liked being the only Americans in there and could see that the others were French speaking and go to the restaurant regularly. Delicious food and also a great value. By far the best meal... More

Once again the food at Le Taitu is the best! Truly French/Creole cooking. Atmosphere and friendly owner always makes us feel welcomed. Daily Specials are a must along with the coconut flan. This is our favorite St. Martin restaurant.

We stopped by to have lunch here on Monday and came right back again on Tuesday. The setting is a rustic outdoor cafe with a welcoming owner. They have a regular menu, but we were huge fans of the fixed price specials board which includes a drink, a main course, and a hot drink at the end of the meal.... More

This is a return visit for us for lunch. From the “formule” board we ordered the catfish fillet which is a favorite of my husbands and I chose the roasted pork tenderloin with the caramel sauce which was so tender and flavorful! Jean (the owner) provides friendly service, good food and good value! This is one of our favorite restaurants... More

We just returned from a week in Saint Martin, and ate here three times. The tuna steak with soy sauce, the white chocolate mousse, for desert. Even the house salad, for a start - an amazing vinagrette salad dressing. Enjoy !

This restaurant is a positive addition to any St Martin -St Maarten vacation. John and staff are warm, friendly, and helpful hosts. Food and it's presentation are excellent - I would describe Le Taitu's food variety and its tastes/flavor but words fail me. You must experience a visit not only for its great food but the ambiance of place -... More
