We were heading for a different restaurant in Marigot. It was closed on Sunday, and we could not have been happier. They served one of our favorite dishes: moules et frites. They were delicious! We were also able to practice the little bit of french we know.

Extensive menu with a great French flare. The carbonara was to die for and they did not mistreat the squid 'steak' - grilled to perfection. Great location at the end of the marina and big, and I mean BIG, martini's...you can't go wrong here.

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.

We visited here on a cruise in October. We stopped here while all the other tourist were shopping and had a wonderful meal. We loved Saint Maarten so much that we decided to come back and knew that we had to come back here and eat again. Ricardo and the rest of the staff are wonderful and the food is... More
