We have been going to Antoine for the lobster therm on every visit to St. Martin. Our dinner last night exceeded all prior visits. The new owners have improved what was already great to greater. We split a Caesar salad that was easily enough for two followed by one of the best ducks that that we have ever enjoyed. Of... More

You couldn't ask for a better location. The food was solid french food, with a view of the ocean. The restaurant is open with a refreshing breeze and even though it was a bit hot in town it was very comfortable here. We had a lovely waiter as well. Definitiely worth a visit.

Right in the ocean, valet service in the evening, we always enjoy dining here when we are in St Marten. Duck in cherry sauce is delicious

We had a great meal again here tonight. My husband has to have the duck every year. I had a great meal of rack of lamb. The scallop appetizer was so good I almost licked the plate!! Everything was prepared perfectly. The new owners are from Nice and they are very nice and give you the best service. The only... More

We have been going to Antoine by the sea for many years whenever we had the chance to go to St. Maarten/St. Martin. We had not realized that the ownership had changed until the first night we got there. The new owner was very gracious bringing us to our table and taking our orders. We then ordered our usual entrees... More

I've dined at Antoine several times during stays in St. Maarten. My most recent visit was a little disappointing, though still overall good. Antoine is probably my favorite place on the Dutch side of the island. The food here is consistently excellent. Relatively simple preparation of very fresh ingredients which really highlights the flavors of the food. Understanding that everything... More

I dined here last year with my best friend; we came back this year with two more friends! The staff were not the same but equally as lovely as our previous visit. The vichyssoise soup - my favorite last year - was, to my excitement, exactly the same. Chilled, thick and packed with flavor. Everything tasted very fresh. I enjoyed... More

Although I read some good reviews about this restaurant on trip advisor, I must admit I am shocked at how poorly many dishes were executed. Very inconsistent and disappointing. The duo fish dish, salmon and red snapper, was extremely overcooked and dry. The sauce was okay, but no amount of sauce could help. The coquilles St. Jacques were okay, but... More

We rented chairs and umbrellas to sit on the beach in front of the restaurant. Very friendly with "Free" WiFi, but the WiFi never works. There are many place along this boardwalk that offer the same thing for the same price. Beach is nice, easy to swim with some waves and current, many people from the cruise ships.
