What is "best" to me may not be "best" for you or "best" to another poster.

I suggest you visit Grand Case as there is where you will find the most concentration of fine French dining. You walk the entir4 length of the street ands review the menus posted outside and from that perhaps make a selectioon or two.

As you have 2 evenings I'd recommend you follow Bobcat's advise the 1st night & do the same thing the next evening except this time walk round Marina Port Royale in Marigot.

Here's a short list:

Marigot: Tropicana (Marina), Claudes Mini Club (wonderful "fresh" buffet with lobster plus, all the wine you can drink and entertainment) on Wed or Saturday, La Vie en Rose.

Cupecoy (actually Dutch side) Temptation or Rare. Culinary Institute of America St. Martin resident trained chef. Unique.

Grand Case.Spiga (Italian-usually $1=1E for cash) and Le Prssoir.

I would consider all but Claudes expensive to very exoensive and all are great options.

Just returned last night from St Martin and went to Le Pressoir, Grand-Case on our last night. The meal was one of the best I have had... world-wide... and I would go back to the island merely to savour their carefully prepared, award winning food. Absolutely first class.

Take a look at www.bestgastronomy.com and it will show recommended first class restaurants, together with menus and a few recipes.

Have fun... I am very, very envious.

I agree to walk the "Grand Case strip" and look at the menus, peek into the restaurants. You will be sure to find a world class restaurant for each of your 2 nights. We found L'Auberge Gourmande on our first trip to SXM and it was excellent.
