“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

The Tropicana is a little piece of heaven in paradise. Located in the Marina Royale The French onion soup was delicious. We also had the escargots which were great and the macaroon for dessert was huge and scrumptious.

“Always a favourite for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

The Tropicana salads are to die for. This is definitely the lunch restaurant of choice if you're a salad lover. The deserts are sinful and the wine by the glass is excellent. The staff are friendly and helpful. I have lunch here as often as possible.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

So we decided, after reading some review, to try this place on our last night in St. Maarten. I wasn't sure once we got there...we had gotten there a bit early and its off season. We had gone to place last night that was excellent and I really didn't think this could top it. Not only was it better...but it was slightly less expensive. The appetizers (crab spring rolls, pumpkin soup and cesaer salad) and main courses (veal, lobster, rack of lamb and red snapper) was fabulous and cooked to perfection....but the tipping point was desert. Clearly they have a first class pastry chef...we were pleasantly shocked at how delicious they were. Lastly, the wait staff was great. Our waitress was sweet and charming and the owner was loud and French...in a wonderful way. All in all a great experience and a great way to end our vacation.

“Wonderful Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

We've been here twice and enjoyed our meals both times. This past time we went with 3 other couples. The service is excellent and the waitresses are attentive and entertaining. Makes sure to leave room for dessert. They are all excellent. We recommend this restaurant for anyone who wants good food, while in St Martin/Maarten.

“So Good We Went Two Night in a Row!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013 via mobile

Our favorite restaurant in Marigot. Ditto many of other reviewers. The lobster Thermidor was awesome as well as filet mignon. The service is attentive and friendly. You can't beat the setting in the marina. Highly recommend! Janice & Paul
