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)

We enjoyed a wonderful evening dinner on the beach. The restaurant is owned by the same person that owns La Fourmi in Marigot, St. Martin, and was highly recommended by our server. Wonderful meal, service and location

Average food for not average price!
Everything was ok, but for these prices I would expect much more.

Excelent experience, including the food and the service.
Gorgeous beach setting.
I can only remark one flaw: we had to wait ages when we asked for the check (no big deal).
Highly recomended for a romantic dinner.

We have been going to La Cigale since our Honeymoon in 1999. Each time we return, Oliviere greets us wonderfully! This is a small family restaurant with a wonderful wine list, romantic music and rich, french style. When we were there about 5 years ago we commented how much we enjoyed the music. The manager said to stop by the next day in the afternoon and he would have a copy of the CD with 5 hours of music! We still listen to it to this day! Some of the best memories of our trips to St Martin include La Cigale. Also go to Ballerina Jewelers and see Ravi. Unique inventory and impeccable service!
