We have been eating at this restaurant for over 20 years. This year we decided to stay at a hotel instead of a resort. We ate here several times over our two weeks on the island. I don't think that there is a bad meal on the menu. The last night there I had a seafood pasta that I will... More

Been going to St. Martin since 1988 and La Main à la Pâte in The marina at Marigot is by far our favourite restaurant. Absolutely the best staff (especially Ludivine) and a wonderful relaxed atmosphere right on the marina dock. Food is great but their pizza's are fabulous and be sure to try their frites!!

We'd walked by this dockside restaurant, one of several in the marina on prevous visits and we decided to have lunch here on our last day before our flight out. We both chose salads which were well prepared with fresh ingredients. A nice meal followed up with delicious homemade ice cream to top it off! Its a competitive setting in... More

People in here are really nice, there's a lot of things to try on the menu, so far, i' ve never been disappointed. Meat, fish, salad or pizza, every time it was good. Careful: big plates!

We enjoyed an excellent thin crust pizza lunch, and liked it so much we returned for dinner! The food was exceptional... seafood pasta, chicken skewers, french onion soup, lots of good wine, and complimentary Banana rum liquor at the end. It was busy, and crowded,, but that is to be expected. How else can you choose a good restaurant in... More

We stopped for lunch on a Sunday, had chicken kabob and a caesar salad. They were average, the Creme Brule was pretty good. The service was chaotic, seemed to be just one server.

We were walking around the marina and the owner/manager starting talking to us, obviously trying to get us in. He mentioned a crab salad and in we went. Good drinks, good service and the crab salad was excellent. Lightly dressed with fresh avocado and grilled shrimp. Guy next to us had a great looking fish entree. Prices were reasonable and... More

We walked all along the through the marina looking at different menus and they were very keen to have us in the restaurant. The host was very gracious and made us want to go in, once we picked this restaurant the service substantially got worse. After ordering a bottle of water and our lunches we asked for a minute to...

We were looking for a place to eat along the water in Marigot and found a line of restaurants along the Marina Royale. My wife checked several other places' menus, but liked this place's menu the best. Our waiter was very friendly and engaging, furthermore was attentive as to when we wanted more drinks or the check. My wife and... More

Wonderful, engaging server. Tuna salad special was delicious, as was mahi-mahi carpaccio. Will go back for dinner.
