So good we went twice. On our second visit, there was a private party that actually added to our experience. What a wonderful group of people that night. Love eating in the Marina and this is our favorite. Service is excellent. Pizza is recommended and Chicken Caesar Salad was excellent. Escargot was a perfect "10" - perfect combo of garlic... More

We always enjoy visiting the Marina Royale area for dinner at least a couple times during our visits to St. Martin. La Main a la Pate is one of the restaurants we always go to. Great menu selections, great service, great atmosphere, and great food! Thank you again for everything. I'm sure we will return again on our next visit... More

The staff is wonderful and the food is even better. We had escargots followed by the lobster crepes with mushrooms. The best! Had an excellent tutorial on how the foods And sauces were prepared. This is our second visit in 8 days and will likely come again later this week.

A very good lunch dockside at the Marina in Marigot. The drinks were very cold and refreshing. We tried crab tartare with shrimp and avocado, very good. The view is good for people and boat watching.

Returned to this spot we have visited over the last 3 trips and 10 years to St Maarten. I was on a grouper "kick" so, for the third time this week I ordered in a different restaurant. This one was the most simple but the best one I had! All were good but there was something special about this one.

Tried this restaurant for the first time this year. The pizza was a thin crust pizza but was wonderfully crispy. We really enjoyed our lunch here and will definitely visit again next year. Service was great too!
