Description: For the last 17 years, owner Stephane has welcomed you to the palm groves of the lagoon at Nettle Bay where, watching the sunset over the lagoon, you can enjoy the gastronomic, gourmet cuisine in an idyllic setting. Chef Malory Leroux offers daily specials sourced from the market's daily offerings, without forgetting the signature dishes: foie gras in truffle oil, lobster raviolis, Wild French sera bass. Mathieu Maini, the pastry chef, is constantly searching for new creations, such as the already famous strawberry macaroon. La Cigale brings a touch of delicacy which rounds off your meal with finesse. The wine menu, without doubt one of the richest on the island, will undoubtedly seduce you. If reservations are encouraged, it is because this corner of paradise, very busy during the season, is the ideal spot for a romantic dinner. (gift certificate - honey moon - weddings - Private Diner)

Had the pleasure to experience La Cigale last night June 5, 2012 and it was AMAZING!!! Great wine choices, the food is unbelievable, and the waiters are two of the best we have ever had. Very romantic atmosphere on the beach facing the bay. Felt as if we were the only people there due to their attentiveness. Best restaurant in St. Martin and make sure you get the "Cheeseburger" for dessert (the macaroon). It is a little pricey but worth every bit of it!!!!

From the minute my group (7) arrived until we left, we felt we were the only guests there. The food holds its own with 5 star restaurants. The beach view completed a near perfect experience.

We all had different fish and all four of us had dry and tough fish.
We will never go back ...we have a villa in terres basse and go to a lot of restaurants on the island.
For what they charge the food is a joke. Even the starter salads which are $16.00 were poor.
Nice location good service ......but we want good food as well for that price.....

What can you ask for more? The location on the marina is pristine, food is refined but also substantial and the service full of French friendliness (yes, it's possible!). Overall, very worth the price. Also the wine list was up to the level.
