When planning our St. Martin trip, I put Paradise View on the itinerary, not just for the view but for the crepes. We were slightly disappointed in both, but one of those issues was not under their control!
That day it was raining, so our view wasn't what we were hoping for. While we were there, an amazing storm blew in (I did get some incredible pictures of that), and they had to close the windows and drop all the shades to keep the wind and rain out. We actually switched seats a few times, first to get away from smokers and then once they left, to get away from the rain!
We finally got settled and ordered. I had a salmon and dill crepe, and my husband had one with ham, cheese and mushrooms. Both were good, but not impressive. My crepe had very little salmon in it, making it rather overpriced. I also ordered a mango daiquiri, which was tasty, and my husband tried a Kir Royale for the first time. It had quite an interesting taste! It was served in a really cool glass that had a coiled wire stand. We would have bought one but they only had a double available.
We decided to order a dessert crepe to share, and we got the Irish crepe, with Kahlua, whipped cream, Irish cream and coffee ice cream. It was supposed to be a flaming crepe but wasn't. The crepe itself was very tasty, but the ice cream was severely freezer burned and inedible.
With those items, a coffee and tip, our bill came to $60 American for our lunch. Rather expensive for a lackluster meal and very slow service. (Also, we'd asked for water, and the waitress brought a bottled water we had to pay for, versus tap water. Ask for tap water in every restaurant you go to if you don't want to pay for bottled!) There was initially only one waitress, and after a large party was seated, another waitress came out to help, but the service was still quite slow. We are used to being able to get crepes that are far less expensive and stuffed with much more of a filling back here at home, so we were a bit disappointed.
We did return later in the week just to get pictures on a sunny day. On both visits we enjoyed petting some local cats that were rescue cats. The shops there were open on the rainy day but because of the rain, we didn't stick around to shop. They were closed on Saturday when we returned.
We did not try other crepes on the island but I read great reviews about Taste Factory. If we return to the island, we'll try them instead.
