The setting makes Le Sand worth a visit. The food is good, but we had better meals on the island. The restaurant is in an appropriately beachy open air setting. The service was friendly although they seemed a little understaffed, perhaps because the season was winding down. We went for dinner, but I would suggest trying Le Sand at lunch... More

We are frequent visitors to St. Martin and primarily stay in Nettle Bay. Our friend recommended dinner at Le Sand. We were met by the host who was super friendly and told us dinner wasn't served until about 6:45 or 7pm. We sat in the bar lounge for a bit. The vibe is "upscale beachy" and we enjoyed a cocktail...

Enjoyed an amazing dinner on Friday at Le Sand in Baie Nettle. (Friends suggested we try this restaurant and it was an outstanding recommendation.) We started with cocktails in the lounge and the atmosphere was so inviting we decided to have dinner. Service was excellent and dinner was delicious. We ordered the Grilled Prime Rib Chairman's Reserve for two. The... More

Delicious top flair French fare on beach. There is a nude section of beach near by -- another charm of the naturalist dream that is St Martin. Champagne by the glass. Superb. Enjoy.

We went out with friends, and every one was very happy with dinner. They do a bit of a show when they break up the fresh lobster and debone the Dover sole at the table. We also had the Mahi mahi...all of it was great. Definitely worth a visit.

This is pretty much a perfect beach bar and restaurant. It's got a chic, upscale vibe and sits on a beautiful, quiet stretch of beach ...both times we visited, we arrived around 11am and had no problem getting beach loungers. They're nicely spaced apart from each other so you don't feel like people are invading your space (and don't be... More

Yes it's oh so French, and wow, everything we have had there is just on point. We have tried both lunch and dinner, and have never walked out disappointed.

The first time getting to this Restuarant is a little difficult but it is worth the trip. It is outside of Marigot on the bay. Some of the seating is on the sand. Sunday afternoon there is music. The food is another example of wonderful French cuisine. Will definitely go back. We met the owner and he was so nice... More

This really was the best night of our trip! We were staying in Simpson Bay and had already explored the restos of Grand Case, and I found this gem online just over on the French side. I was asking about it around the beach one day and a French couple who lived nearby confirmed that it was an excellent place... More
