“Favorite sunset on the Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Great place to enjoy sundowners, with friendly staff and reasonable prices. They have good music and a hip vibe while still being low key and not as overdone as many of the places in Grand Case. Highly recommend!

“Nice Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Had a nice lunch here on our last day. We both had beef kabobs with fries and it was very tasty and not bad for price. The mojitos were very good. The beach view is great.

“Great New Place for Hand Made Cocktails, View, & Cuisine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Chef Carol Robbs Here. Found a new little hideaway on the beach. Le Zen' it Beach Bar in Grande Case. This is a new addition since our last visit. All new interior, very comfortable and wonderful sunset view. The cocktails are all handmade with "real" ingredients, not poured from a mix. You can rent a lounge chair or bed on the beach for the day and they will serve you beach side all day long..... Great staff, very attentive. We visited and had some before dinner drinks at sunset. We sort of "fell upon the place." We liked it so much we went back for breakfast on our last morning before getting to the airport and had Bloody Mary's (hand mixed) and ham and cheese omelets. This is a great little place to hang!

“Great spot. Rude staff.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

As you pull into the main drag on Grand Case, you will be drawn in by le Zen It as it is right there on the beach and looks fun and inviting. Perhaps if you are French, this would be the case. But if you do not speak French or not ready for the classic stereotypical rude french culture, this may not be the experience you are looking for. I personally had a blast listening to the quirky band they had there when we went and sipping on rum, but my wife was insulted by the bartender and made her feel unwelcomed and needless to say, this dampened our experience. Compare this to the experience that LOVE provides down the street - same kind of feel - and you'll be better off somewhere else.

“GreatTime!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Our last night in St. Martin, we had just finished dinner at a restaurant near by. We were walking back to our hotel and heard live music coming from Zen It. We got a great seat and had late night cocktails while enjoying the music. The crowd was mostly locals, but super friendly and fun! Next trip to St Martin, we will have to find out when the live music will be there and plan to go!
