This was our second time at this place, food was not as expected at least not for the price... Didn't like the fact that they didn't honor the 1€=1$. Everywhere else cash or credit that's the conversion... Hostess has a nasty attitude when dealing with any situation! Make sure if you go you bring cash with you or they will... More

One of the nicest views on the boulevard. Terrific food, it ranks in our top 10 and you will not be disappointed, we are returning visitors and would do it again in a second, however compared to the food up and down the street, it's up against some terrific chefs.

A friend took us to dinner here and all I can say is WOW. You walk in to the most incredible view, ask for a table by the rail so you can watch the most beautiful sunset. Dinner is quite good, be prepared for high Grande Case prices - but this is a nice restaurant to spend a romantic evening... More

Quaint but high on quality, both the food and the staff! We are part of a group but they treated us as though we were all individuals with unique tastes. Our wine glasses never went empty, and the food was amazing. You can tell they take great pride in what they do and in the service they offer. Exceptional evening... More

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!
