They got everything right here. The food is delicious, the ambiance is fabulous, portions are very generous. You can't go wrong with Mario's Bistro, however it will put a dent in your wallet. We did appetizers, but if we went back we would just do entrees because it is much more food than one normally expects at a typical French restaurant. Wine list is really great. You must make a reservation if you want to sit on the waterfront, which I highly recommend.

I don't know where to begin raving about this restaurant.
This was our 7th time in SXM and our 1st trip to Mario's. After extensive research we decided to make this our meal to remember and it did not dissapoint!
The restuarant is located just over the Marigot bridge and many tables overlook the canal. Do yourself a favour and make a reservation for the late sitting at a water front table.

Service: the ALL french wait staff are a total treat! Their description of the specials will make your mouth water with anticipation. They are so accomodating and pleasant! They are truely there to serve you and it doesnt hurt that they are easy on the eyes.

Food: We have uploaded pictures because our description will not do it justice! This is by far the best meal that I have ever eaten. For appetizers we ordered Lobster taco, foie gras, spinach salad and the special- fresh mozzarella (breaded) with an atipasto platter. For mains we had lamb shank, pumpkin risotto with lobster and shrimp, Half duck with honey ginger glaze and lobster thermidore.

The restaurant has a great selection of wine and spirits-including four kinds of Grey Goose!
The dessert menu was also fabulous but we were too full to try much. We shared a Creme Brulee and it was amazing!

All of this does not come cheap but was worth every penny. The menu prices in the picture are in Euro's but you are looking at about $30-$40 US per Entree.
Everything from the cocktails at the bar to the pictures with the wait staff was absoltutely PERFECTION!
We will be back next year!

We were in St Martin for a week this Easter and went to a different restaurant each night. We were amazed at the quality of the food in the high-end gourmet restaurants in the French side.

We had decided to repeat the best restaurant on the last evening and the winner was Mario's Bistro.

Very creative food, with superb taste and a good portion size. Amazing desserts, friendly waiters, normal prices for the Island .

Highly recommend the half lobster with scallops and the profiteroles.

Reservations a must, a few days in advance should you desire a waterfront table
