Given that St. Maarten is supposedly the food capital of the Caribbean and that Grand Case is the food capital of St. Maarten, I was not sure what to expect. I also have not eaten at any other restaurants in Grand Case. Having said that I must say that the meal at Le Pressoir was everything I had hoped it would be.
We were two couples and our friends truly love things like pate, escargot, caviar, good French cheeses, etc. They were happy. From the outside you would never guess the quality of the interior. White tablecloths and linens, good crystal and silverware, etc. In other words, a high quality, intimate setting. This is French food and the chef(s) know what they are about. Everything was superbly prepared.
My wife had the 50 euro fixed price menu. Expensive, but we had expected that given that this was Grand Case. Well, the menu delivered. She was in heaven. So were our friends. And the portions, while not large, certainly were not small.
This was dining, not eating. If that is what you are looking for (and we were) then you will not be disappointed. The experience is not inexpensive, but if you are looking for inexpensive then you probably should not be in Grand Case to start with.
