Very average food

The duck salad was ok, but the fish was well over cooked. There are much better options for food along the port for very similar prices. Service was ok, and the location very pretty. Shame it was let down by the food.

Took forever to be served, but once order was taken food arrived within a few minutes, clearly made in bulk and sat on the side. Food was ok, but covered in cream and salty, but most things tasks ok when creamy! Good spot on harbour but sun disappears quickly in evening. Would recommend going to other side of harbour instead... More

We chose this restaurant whilst cycling for the day to our first visit to Saint Martin. Great location watch the world go by and enjoy some fresh local produce. My partner ordered moules with curry sauce, thought he would try something different to the normal moules frites on offer across the island. They arrived without the sauce on noticing the... More

Very poor tourist trap of a cafe/restaurant in a beautiful area. The worst moules frites I've ever eaten. The frites were ice cold and dry, I think reheated already and the moules were the smallest I've ever ever seen! Totally over cooked, zero flavour, it's as though they were boiled dry in water, no flavour and served with no sauce.... More

We usually frequent most lunch times when staying in St Martin for moules which are fantastic. The staff are all very nice and look after you well. My husband likes the beer and the Ott is excellent!!

The food was nice, the wine was a little local gem. Staff were not really friendly nor smiling but we had a lovely time anyway. The restaurant was quiet and cosy. Clients seem really happy with the quality of the food.

At 11am in the sunny morning of an equinoxial spring tide, the whole town seemed to be down at the tideline finding delicacies to eat. We stopped here and ordered the moules and they were just wonderful. When I congratulated the waiter, he told me they had been freshly picked within the last hour. The place was bustling and very...

First night - looked very busy - sat more than half an hour waiting to be served before giving up and walking away. Tried again 2 nights later - managed to get served, but the food was very poor.

Very picturesque, with good service Le Belem was a great choice for lunch. Full but with tables turning over there was a majority French clientele. The menu Prix fixé was great and the Maigrette delicious.
