“Good service, not excellent food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Although the service was good and the view is romantic, our food was under cooked and tasteless. No choice of desert either. I would not recommend this restaurant despite it’s good service.

“wonderful place, very good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Wow, difficult to find a better location for a restaurant. We had a great table, even if we had not booked, just in front of the ocean. Given the location, it came as a very positive surprise that the service and food are also very good. There is clearly a very tight competition in Gran Case, with so many gourmet restaurants packed in a very small area, so I believe that if you don't keep the standard you are out. We had the fish panache, not a very original dish, but overall quite satisfactory. Prices appropriate to the overall quality.

“Loved this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Everything about this restaurant was top notch: the food, the setting, the service. I can recommend the veal chop, rack of lamb and red snapper. All three of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals and shared some off each others plate.

“An experience to repeat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Had an exquisite lunch at Le Tastevin in March of last year... The decor is cheerful and not overly formal. Seating on the patio gives an incredible view over the ocean but even that view paled in comparison to the food. I remember having the menu dégustation with wine pairings and was delighted with all of it. Am expecting to be back to St Maarten for a 2914 cruise and fully intend to make Le Tastevin the highlight of my day ashore... I should also mention the cordial and gracious reception on the part of the owners and staff... A truly memorable experience.

“Outstanding views and great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Come to this restaurant at sunset, and enjoy the views.
We had a very nice dinner at this restaurant. Our server was attentive, and the food was fresh and well-prepared. We ordered a half bottle of champagne, and they showed up with a full bottle, but that is a minor issue.
