Fabulous ambience and very genial host. Food was all excellent and portion sizes just right. The prices were moderate by St Martin standards. We had goat curry x2, Mahi Mahi (pronounced my my) in creole sauce all from the specials menu; and creole chicken and kids chicken and chips (a la carte). A prix fixe menu was also available with...

It's a bit off the main road, but absolutely worth it! Beware of the Taitu Special desert! The aged rum is extremely strong (you were warned...now try it, it was great!)

This was close by so we stopped in. Glad we did! Excellent creole fish. Wonderful sides and bread. Very kind and good service. Loved the outside feel and laid back vibe! Too full for dessert but would love to go back.

We have been coming to Le Taitu for dinner on every visit to St. Martin. Food is excellent and reasonable. They offer a price-fixed menu that has a few selections of main course and includes a dessert. Best food we had on the island this visit and less than we paid anyplace else. Highly recommend.

Rented a car from on a cruise, after the beach trying to find a place to eat and we found the small great place. Owner was great, the food delicious, nice french wine and they had a kids menu, a plus. Very relaxed feel no hurry enjoyed the company. Totally recommend this place to eat. 5 stars.

Excellent food at a reasonable price. Jean, the owner, is attentive. Coconut flan is a real treat. Definitely eat there.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Le Taitu. We had driven by this cute, little local spot many times as we stayed at Mont Vernon last year and again this year. Some people by our pool told us to give it a try and we are so happy we did. It was smaller then I expected but just adorable, with... More

We have been going to Le Taitu for about ten years. We've only done dinner, so we can't speak to lunch, but if lunch is the same quality as dinner, I'm sure it's very good. The menu is a nice balance between traditional French and Caribbean Creole dishes, and between seafood and non-seafood. There's something for everyone. The atmosphere is... More
