“Best in Orient Bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

This ranks with La Plantation Cafe as the best in Orient Bay. Had Dover Sole (wonderful and done just right), Caesar Salad, and the Sea Bass (also done just right). This is in a beautiful setting in the Esmerelda Resort. Staff is absolutely wonderful. Make sure you go.

“Excellent gastromic restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

We had a wonderful dinner experience at Astrolabe. Surf & Turf night was a great found. Fresh seafood was great and very tasty. Romantic atmosphere around the pool in this old creole house. Service was good and very professional. We liked it very much. Give it a try.

“The best restaurant in St.Martin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

We have been dining at Astrolabe for 15 years. Every year, we go there 3-4 times. The owners, Thomas and Amine are so gracious and make you feel part of their family. The dining area is exquisite,romantic and set around the pool. The chef is amazing! Food is prepared beautifully with an abundance of flavors and choices. Friday thru Sunday nites, they have entertainment. We love "Shine" on Fridays. Friday is also lobster night. A very large lobster with appetizer and dessert for a very reasonable prix fix. They are not interested in turning the tables over, as they do in the U.S.. You can take your time,relax and the table is yours for the nite. Great wine list and cocktails along with the alfresco dining. It doesn't get much better than that! Our favorite.

“So good we came back the next night.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

The atmosphere around the pool is lovely. I was with a gal pal but this would be sublime for a romantic encounter as well. The food was fabulous! We came one night and followed it up by going the following night. They smoke their lobster so it keeps its delicacy but has a more vibrant taste. The Foie Gras Trio is incredibly wonderful. I would go back just for that. The lamb was perfectly cooked. I could go on and on but will simply say, if you are in St. Martin, you have to eat here. Thomas, the owner, is also very welcoming - but I have to admit, it's the food that's most the biggest draw.
