It was by complete luck that we happened upon Tropicana prior to lunch on our first visit to Marigot. Though they were not yet open, a nice gentlemen stepped out to talk about their menu and he promised a fabulous French lunch if we returned. We did, and they delivered. During our week long visit to St Maarten we actually made a special trip back to Marigot just to eat at this restaurant. We tried a number of dishes, all were excellent and the portions were quite large. Salads can easily be split between two people. The prices are reasonable for the quality of the food and the portion size, and the menu is quite diverse. They also have some daily specials. The staff was knowledgable, efficient and friendly and the place is very clean and attractively decorated. The front is open to the marina so there really isn't a bad seat in the house. If you visit, I recommend that you dine at a slow, leisurely pace to enjoy the food and ambiance. Also, don't over eat because you do not want to miss dessert! The very capable (and quite attractive) chef is a true artist with dessert. Both the taste and presentation are superb!

You will not find a more hospitable and accommodating staff at this wonderful French restaurant. Situated on the marina, it offers fine French food, a lovely atmosphere, and a gem in Adege! Try the Dover sole!! yum.

The food here is very good. However, the day to go is Friday. The best muscles you will ever have. The salads are fresh. The lobster bisque soup & French onion soup Magnifique... Make a reservation the place is not very big but it gets packed for lunch. A lot of locals dine here. The dessers top notch. At the end of the meal, don't miss out the banana rum!

Me, my husband and one year old went there for my birthday. It was delicious, great staff and place. They had a high chair for our son and made us feel welcomed. The price are awesome for the quality ;)

Skip the French Riviera! St. Martin and the Tropicana have it covered. Authentic high quality cuisine, friendly service, good wine, and a lovely view sitting on top of the marina.

Not much more to say, you can not go wrong!
