“Loved it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

We were renting a condo close by & thought it was very convenient. There were 4 of us, so we thought we would order a different item each, & it was truly a taste we will never forget. It, was so good we decided we had to go back again, & again it was a taste delight. The wait staff were very nice & efficient. The price was a little high, but worth every penny. I ordered a mojito, & everything was so fresh in the drink, & one was all I needed as it was a healthy drink. It went real well with the chicken cordon bleu!!! Sitting by the water & under the huts just made it feel so cosy with candlelight that we didn't want the evening to end. We would recommend this to anyone who enjoys great food, service & ambiance..

“Good value for this pricey island.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014

A nice French restaurant (no web site) that was close to our villa. They had quite a large menu of pasta, seafood, veal, beef, chicken, escargot, etc. Prices were $16-$28 euros. A nice small selection of wine with some reasonably priced selections.
We sat under a small tiki canopy just a few yards away from the water, with the lights of Marigot across the water.

I had the escargot appetizer and my wife had the lobster bisque. Escargot was good, but forget the bisque - absolutely no lobster bits at all. I think they dunked a lobster in some water and called it soup.
I had the filet of red snapper for my main course. It was a nice filet and done nicely and had some interesting side dishes. My wife had the tapas, which were okay, but only had one shrimp.

Service was fine. Good value for this pricey island.

“Wonderful, laid back French cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

My husband and I ate here a couple of times, once with another couple, and we really enjoyed it. It was easily accessible from our place nearby, decor was casual with tropical hut setting, outside tables overlooked beach. Service was prompt, friendly and efficient. Food was excellent!!!!!! We enjoyed the tuna tataki, creole plate, scallops, lobster bisque, conch soup. Unfortunately, no room for dessert. Reasonably priced, we left very satisfied. Other family members enjoyed this restaurant as well.

“Great food and setting!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

Ma-Ti Beach was the first restaurant we visited as we arrived to SXM in our rented studio in Nettle Bay. It was close by and facing the sea, and the food was very good. Friendly service, relaxed beat yet efficient and accommodating staff. We returned later in our week for lunch and once again were fully satisfied.
It surely beats the overpriced Layla's on the other side of Nettle Bay!

“Great Food, Easy Going Vibe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

My girlfriend and I were staying across the road at the Mercure Hotel and on our first night in St. Martin decided to take the easy option rather than driving anywhere. Great decision as the food was delicious and the restaurant charming. This is an unpretentious restaurant serving well-prepared but unfussy French food (the spaghetti with fruits de mer was ridiculously tasty, kind of "no talking/eating" good) and the service was quick and pleasant. The restaurant is right on the beach and at night the sound of the waves is a great soundtrack for a romantic evening. We actually went back on a second occasion despite all the offerings in Grand Case and were equally satisfied.
