One of our favorite restaurateur recommended L'escapade. We always look for a new experience when we visit GCBC twice per year. This was an awesome experience. Great food, service, atmosphere in this waterfront location. Owner Jerry and our waitress Rochelle have become dear friends with just one visit. We will always dine here. The Lobster Bisque (with chunks of lobster)... More

Right in the middle of the action of the Blvd de Grand Case, L'escapade is a nice change of pace to the otherwise bohemian feel of the area. Great french food, nicely appointed, with a great wine selection but not pretentious or formal at all. Very friendly and hands on owner is very attentive to his customers. The restaurant is... More

To be any closer to the ocean you would have to sit in the water! What an amazing view and gem by the sea! My wife and I were here as part of the Flavors of St Maarten food tour for an infused rum sampling. We had fruit (rum punch), banana - vanilla, and coconut. Each was better than the... More

Some of the best seafood in SXM. The friendly hosts are knowledgeable about the dishes and attentive to your needs. A favorite appetizer is the flaming Camembert. Be sure to try the shrimp and scallops in lemongrass sauce. Delicious!

We were summoned in by Price Fix Menu which we didn't take. Ordered the special which was shrimp scallops in one of the best sauces I have ever eaten. The risotto side dish melted in you mouth. Great seating with fabulous water view.

We walked along the downtown as everyone says all restaurants are good here! This was one of the only ones open on a Thursday afternoon so we took a chance and went in! What a lovely surprise. We were seated promptly at a table right on the edge of the balcony overlooking the lovely bay - waves only feet away.... More

During low season, the restaurants and stores are quite empty. We wanted a nice dinner and were considering another place, but weren't quite hungry yet so strolled down the street for some shopping. While I was in a shop, my husband was hanging out outside and the owner of L'Escapade struck up a conversation with him. After exhausting our shopping... More
