One of the great things about the French side of St. Martin is that it's really French! This place features everything from homemade baguettes to real (and big) French macarons - it's like going to a bakery in Paris. I wanted to eat everything in the display case, it all looked so amazing - but I ended up with a prosciutto and mozzerella sandwich and a couple of macarons for dessert. The sandwich was made on one of their own baguettes and was *really* tasty, with what looked like a pesto sauce to give it some moisture and taste. The macarons were as good as any I've had, though the coffee macaron was better than the raspberry, which was filled with a jam that was a little too sweet.
While we were there, we saw a local restaurateur come by to pick up a giant bag full of baguettes - always a good sign. This is obviously where some of the local restaurants get their bread.
Be aware that even though it doesn't really look like it the way it's roofed over, this entire restaurant is actually outdoors and at ground level and consequently there is all manner of wildlife. Don't leave your plate sitting unattended - my wife did this, and it was almost immediately attacked by a very aggressive pigeon that obviously didn't want our leftovers to go to waste. We also saw a gecko and even a mouse in the seating area. I don't fault the restaurant for that because again, it is really outdoors and there's no real way for them to control the animals you might find outside in the town of Marigot. But just be aware of it and don't leave your food just sitting on a table - a little critter might try to grab it. It's easy to forget you're outside because of the permanent look of the roof. (There are no walls.)
