“Excellent food, but impersonal service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

We ate at all the top rated restaurants on our week in St. Martin, but were somewhat disappointed by the #1 restaurant according to TA. The food was good, but the service was impersonal at best. The staff catered to people they knew, and never looked us in the eye, which made the meal certainly not our best!

“Very nice dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

We had a nice dinner.
The onion soup is very good and can be shared because is big!
The lobster plate is excellent too.
The plates in general are big and the service is very polite and efficient. Their coco rum is delicious!

“A Great Recommendation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

A store owner on the Dutch side recommended this Grand Case restaurant and we were not disappointed. The owners were very charming, food was delicious, and they offer a 49 euro prix fixe dinner that had many choices and was quite filling. If you pay cash, euros = dollars, so you don't feel ripped off on the French side. The owner was also honest enough to tell us that a 15% service is ALWAYS included in meals on the French side, by law, even if the restaurant does not break it out as a separate charge on your bill. Many restaurants aren't that honest. The staff was very attentive, and the restaurant has a lovely look to it. Definitely worth a trip.

“Expensive, but AMAZING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Food and presentation was amazing, as well as the service. Not a place we could afford to go to often - but definitely worth it at least once!
