Great lobster and French cuisine. Great and very friendly service. We have been to this restaurant 4 times now and the owners Thibault and Amaury are always there and are great hosts. It's a fun solace for dinner and also truly fine dining.

Their lobster served their special way is not to be missed. Absolutely delicious and it was fun to pull the live lobsters out of the tank. The service was excellent and the ginger... More

Four of us went to Grand Case for a progressive restaurant tour. Appetizers one place (here), dinner another, and desert at a third restaurant. (See other entries.) French onion soup = good. Lobster bisque = okay, too thin/watery - prefer it creamier, with some lobster chunks which didn't make it into our bowl. Pass on this here. It's better at... More

First, it certainly is the best restaurant on St. Martin, and one of the best we have had a dinner. Second, reservation is crucial :). I mean it, because you likely won't be able to have a seat on the night you stop by, so you need to think in advance. Second, they accept tips in cash only, so prepare... More

My husband, son (age 21) and I went to Grand Case after an afternoon of zip lining with the hope of finding a good spot for an early dinner. We stopped at a couple of spots but given the early hour, they were not open. We stopped at Bistrot Caraibes and struck gold. While we were not the most elegantly... More
