La Villa has been our special restaurant to officially celebrate our anniversary for the last 14 years or so with the exception of last year (pandemic) and the year after Irma While I enjoy the food we really enjoy the service which may be the...most welcoming on the island Although Florence was absent the evening we visited, Christophe, John Carlos (JC) and Cedric all took very good care of us Christophe valeted our car and offered to retrieve it after diner but we had to drive back around (one way street) to get back to GCBC so walking to the church to get the car was not a problem We have known JC since he was a young kid starting out as a quite busboy and even remember offering him a ride home after his shift He has grown into an exception server with a personality unmatched He makes everyone feel comfortable and will certainly give you a laugh as he is a jokester You may also see him at Orange Fever on Orient working lunch He is also the house photographer and makes the after dinner rum (banana easier to drink) You can just watch him and know he loves making his guests happy La Villa's gift from the chef (amuse bouche) was a chilled asparagus soup to start off of very good evening My foie gras with almonds was my favorite for the week served with a generous pour of sweet Muscat My wife started with the tuna tatiki followed by the tuna entrée (too much tuna even while both were pristine) and JC joked if she wanted the tuna ice cream John Dory was a good choice from the fish section of the menu My profiterole picture may have been affected by my drinking oops!! My wife selected the lemon glace dessert special and it was refreshing and light after a big meal (she usually orders the pick me up coffee) La Villa will always be our anniversary restaurant because of the genuine welcoming serviceMore

My wife and I visited St Martin for the second time this past week to find that many of the French side restaurants were closing or were closed for September. We were so fortunate to visit La Villa prior to their holiday. Everything was perfect....And the service was the best. We will definitely visit again when back in Grand Case!More

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at La Villa and were very pleased we did. The entire staff couldn’t be more attentive and the meals were spot on (the Fois Gras was incredible!) We have been to the island many time but this was...our first visit to La Villa but it won’t be our last. Thank you for a memorable experience.More

The foie gras is amazing. In fact, everything is amazing. The service was the best we had on the island. The drinks were on point. Excellent desserts. I will go back here every night I returned to Saint Martin.

Best meal of our trip and it's the dinner spot I'm most likely to revisit next time I visit. Everything was amazing, but the stand out was the best foie gras either of us have ever had. The cocktails were great, which is not something...I'd say about most restaurants on the island. And the friendly staff really spoiled us and gave us good tips for the neighborhood.More

We were staying on the Dutch side of the island but drove here in search of a good French meal. We found it! The food was delicious and the restaurant interior was casual and breezy. There is free valet parking, and you can make a...reservation on Open Table. Servers were so friendly! And the John Dory was prepared to perfection.More

The ambiance, service and food are all wonderful at La Villa. I would definitely eat here every time I come to the island. It is one of the few NOT to be missed. Oh my gosh, probably the best Rack of Lamb around. It was...my birthday and they brought us a delicious dessert and a shot of liquor to finish off our dinner. They were great and we had an excellent meal and a good time!More

We dined here as a family on July, 15th. We arrived early but they happily seated us. They were charismatic to our family of 5 and treated us like family. The steak was amazing and the potatoes are something the family is still talking about....We made our reservations on open table, and wish more restaurants on the island did so. We will returnMore

We came on a whim based on the menu. We are vegetarians and often find that fine dining excludes us. Often vegetarian diners are an afterthought and we get pasta... but not here! The menu has both a vegetarian and vegan entree: a goat cheese...veggie tart and a green curry. We each selected one. Both were prepared and plated with care and regard for the freshness and flavor of the vegetables. Our server, JC, was friendly, kind, and attentive without being annoying. The restaurant vibe is unpretentious and inviting. Dessert was amazing. Overall a wonderful experience.More

Although I'm a male wheelchair user, they suggested I use the female bathroom, which was just about possible for me, but tricky. Don't assume it's OK.
