The service was good and the food was good, but just average for a french restaurant. We dined at top notch restaurants in Marigot and Grand Case, so it may be very unfair to rate Antoine's in comparison to some of these other restaurants. After 2 weeks in St. Maartin, I would say this was one of the more average... More

The restuarants on the Boardwalk can be boisterous or "pubby" and those places are good too depending on your mood and company that day. But Antoine's is a small slice of Grand Case but on Great Bay. Beautiful view, good service and the mainly French menu is extensive. Antoine's gets an extra star from me BECAUSE it is a Philipsburg... More

We had a wonderful dinner here. The restaurant was fairly empty when we got there on a week night, but more people came after us. It's located right on the boardwalk so there is a good view of the beach and Great Bay. The food (French cuisine) was excellent. Our waitress was very pleasant, provided excellent service and gave good... More

Well a crazy night and a once in a lifetime experience. The power was out at our resort and part of the town. The resort staff advised us places would be using generators so we ventured out. We landed at Antoine by The Sea. No power and no lights. But we were welcomed at the door to a candlelit table.... More

Wife ordered the garlic shrimp and I ordered the red snapper. Technique was top notch and the favors were all pronounced in the dish and sauce. Recommend you try it for yourself. Great meal and good service.

This was one of the stops on our food tour of St. Martin. The owners were friendly, as was the server. We were treated to bruscetta on french bread, which was delicious. The escargot were tender, but the anise flavor was too much to handle. The sauce for the escargot is a mixture of butter, garlic and an anise flavored... More

There may be new owners but the only difference is the art on the wall. Same chef, same staff, same menu. We were hesitant about going, but did for our last evening on vacation and we are glad we did. Still the same beautiful location, same wonderful meal choices, and the same waiter we had a year ago. Highly recommend... More

This one of our favorite restaurants in Philipsburg. Great atmosphere overlooking Great Bay, wonderful food and service. Even valet parking - a must at night. We stay on St. Maarten 3 weeks every year and go 3 or 4 times each year. This way we get our french food fix without having to drive to Grand Case.
