Hercule who is hospitable and has a casual restaurant along the road in Cul de sac, came to the US in 1986. He started a restaurant and has been going strong ever since. We were early but were soon joined by several local couples who all also got a warm greeting. Hercule makes island food with a few Haitian specialties.... More

The owner, Hercules, is a charming and welcoming host. He made us feel like we were the oldest of friends as we had our time with him. The food is good and he has his own rum which was outstanding! The price was a little steep though and more expensive then any of the fine dinning we had on our... More

Anyone who enjoys true Creole/Caribbean food should come here. Hercule serves a great planteur punch. The christophine farcie is not to be missed. All of the seafood entrees--conch, snapper, grouper--are excellent. In Jan. Wife and I had the 2 best dinners of our trip to St. Martin. If your tastes are strictly "mainstream" this is probably not the place for... More

During our stay in St. Martin we wanted an authentic island dining experience. Just down the road from our villa we found this little restaurant across the street from the pharmacy. As we entered we were greeted with a big hello and were seated immediately. As it was the low season almost every restaurant on the French side was virtually... More

This was our 5th trip to Saint Martin and found Hercules near our beach condo on Cul de Sac. The restaurant is quaint and service very personal. They treated is like old friends. Wine selection is OK, but the dishes are pretty extensive. The goat was really good. Prices are reasonable and location convenient. Grand Case is grand, but it's... More
