I recently reviewed Bistro Nu based on past experiences there, which were always great.
We just returned back from Christmas break in St Martin. We went to Bistro Nu, as we always do and unfortunately it was not as wonderful as we had remembered. I think that they switched chefs. The onion soup was watery, the fish overcooked and hard.
Jean Claude was still gracious and a pleasure but that was the highlight of our night. The prices aren't cheap here and our bill came to almost $400 which was not worth it.
Hopefully we just caught Bistro Nu on an off night but I can't say it is as great as it used to be.

The restaurant is across the street from the stadium (beware as there are 2 in Marigot). It felt odd that when we arrived the door was locked and there was a security man at the door. The restaurant is very quaint with about 6 tables. The appetizers were good and included onion soup, goat cheese salad and foie gras. They had run out of the asparagus salad. Our main courses were good size but generally overcooked and the vegetables cold. The grouper, red snapper and Mahi Mahi were all over cooked. The Cornish game hen was dry and was served after the other mains arrived. The frogs legs were excellent.
The manager was very friendly and managed the room quite effectively.
There are so many other great dinner options in Marigot, we will not be returning here.

We have been going to Bistro Nu for the past 10 years during our annual St Martin trip. It is hidden down a little alleyway in Marigot. It is small and quaint and very french. The one man service by Jean Claude is outstanding & the chalkboard specials menu that he brings from table to table only adds to the charm of this place. We always get the same meal - french onion soup to start, the grouper in the delicious garlic sauce over pasta (with extra garlic sauce on the side for bread dipping) and creme brulee to finish the meal. A trip to St Martin would not be the same without going here. Go here, you will not be disappointed, I promise!

We visit Bistro Nu in Marigot every time we come to St Martin. It is a delightful restaurant where you will find an array of dishes to suit every taste. The Ribeye steak with pepper corn sauce is exceptional. For appetizers, we particularly like the stuffed mussels and the goat cheese salad. It is one of the best goat cheese salads anywhere. If you like real country french cooking, they have veal kidneys, sweetbreads and even tete de veau. Jean Claude, the manager, provides outstanding service. The prices here are much more reasonable than many of the fine french restaurants on the island.
