We saved this recommended restaurant for our last evening. While the decor is beautiful and service is friendly and professional, we had the opinion that the hype of the food did not live up to our expectations. I did have their famous French onion soup,...More

There are indeed many wonderful restaurants on St Martin/Maarten. Temptation is routinely one of the best places. On every visit they meet their own high expectations.

If you are gambling in the casino, you might find it convenient to eat here. No atmosphere. Food is OK. If you do eat here, note that the gratuity is included. With so many great restaurants in St. Martin's, why would anyone eat here.
