This restaurant is so unique and wonderful. You have to ride through a dark, run down, scary street, but once you get to it, you are warmly greeted by someone who takes your car and you enter into a magical experience. The restaurant is gorgeous and our table jutted out over the sea. The view is incredible, only to be... More

Finding this place is a challenge since one has to drive through a run down residential part of town to get to this place. The building looks like an old plantation building. Has valet parking and is only open for dinner. Run by Madame Dupont who lives upstairs. Has a beautiful seaside balcony view and decor resembles a wedding tent... More

Every time we visit St Martin we always have a dinner at Le Santal in Sandy Ground. The owner Nada and Maitre d' Marc are extremely gracious and helpful. The atmosphere can best be described as casual elegant. We have always been fortunate enough to get a table on a private balcony overlooking the water. This makes for a very... More

The entire experience at Le Santal is unforgettable. The first year we discovered it, we went twice in that week! The view, especially at sunset, is phenomenal. From the moment you arrive and are valet parked, until the final bite of your soufflé is gone---it's a wonderful experience! So relaxing and unhurried, it truly makes for a memorable evening. I...

This is a family owned French restaurant and the food, as well as the service was the best on the island. We had a large group of 8 people and our meal was delivered, and was above our expectations. Food/atmosphere/service- all were exquisite. Owner's son is very professional and polite young man.

Well... The service was excellent all around. We were greeted and escorted when the meal was done with such dignified grace that the whole experience was amplified, and became even more memorable. This is a family owned French restaurant. The duck was arguably the best we have ever had. The service was as I indicated excellent. This is a great... More

We went here for a celebratory dinner with another couple during the sunset hour and couldn't of asked for better service or meals. Two of us had the Dove Sole and the other 2 the fish special of the evening. Everyone raved about their dinners. Our hostess even suggested a less pricey bottle of wine that was fantastic! No overselling... More
