“Great French/Creole Meal, Simple/Local Setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Five of us ate here on a slow, Thursday evening. It's a covered, pleasant outdoor setting, off the beaten path. The meal was very good. We had the combination of three appetizers, and each was a favorite of one or more of us. For the main course, we had five different dishes and liked all of them. Four different desserts topped it off and left us entirely satisfied. And as others have posted, the prices were VERY reasonable, given the quality of the food and the wine.

“A great dining experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

We had dinner there tonight. We read the reviews on Trip Advisor & they were absolutely correct. The food was wonderful, and reasonably priced. We appreciated that the menu was in English & dollars. A lovely evening.

“Delicious food with a cozy and quiet ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

We were first-timers to SXM and we stayed at the Radisson in Anse Marcel. We picked Le Taitu for dinner because of the good reviews on TA and we weren't interested in the heavy French cuisine being served all over Grand Case. We couldn’t have been happier with what we found at this quaint Cajun/Creole restaurant tucked into the Cul-de-Sac. We had such a pleasant dining experience at Le Taitu early in our trip that we went back for our last night. It's just over the hill from the Radisson and a 10euro cab ride but worth it considering the menu prices were lower than the Grand Case and the Anse Marcel restaurants. We had our two best meals at Le Taitu during our entire stay! We appreciated the quiet, intimate atmosphere and felt like we were really visiting the island, not just some tourist hot spot. The owner and the hostess/waitress were pleasant, the dishes were simple and scrumptious and well priced. Try the catfish in the coconut sauce- it's perfectly delicious!

“You won't be disappointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

This restraurant provides great atmosphere, food and service. This is the true French side of St. Martin experience. The specials are French and Creole selections, priced right. The owner is a true gentleman who will provide you with great tips about the Island. Always a pleasure to eat here.
