This has been a must do dinning evening for us during each trip to St Maartin. In the past we have always had excellent experiences but this visit the service, atmosphere and even the food was not up to standard. The restaurant itself is beautiful and is second level waterfront in Marigot. We can comment only on the Lobster Buffet served Wednesday and Saturday. Our Saturday visit was not good. The place was packed ( a good thing for the relatively new owners, Myriam and Yoann if service and food had not suffered) with long lines at the buffet all evening, delays and shortage of the lobster and so on. Plenty of soups and other meats on the buffet all of which were very good but at nearly $65.00 US the main draw is the lobster. We commented to the owner Yoann, that the evening was not up to expectation and he apologized and asked we return as his guest for another evening. The second visit was a Wednesday and the experience was much better. The restaurant was perhaps 1/2 full and the service was much more attentive. Again the buffet was well done overall but still there was the occasional delay ( 5-10 minutes +/-) as chef replenished the grilled lobster. These delays created a wait line that we just do not recall experiencing any of our many previous visits. Anyway... between the 2 visits we'd consider the overall experience average. We know of no other place on the island where the lobster buffet is so large, with many other meat options and so on. Value wise it remains a good deal if you eat a lot of lobster. If not, there are other choices that would be better for "regular dining" or perhaps select from their menu rather than the buffet. Previously we have rated Le Mini Club as excellent. We will go back again next trip to the island and hope for the best.
