Great experience! I was a little nervous about trying French food for the first time. Now I am definitely a fan. The food was great, the service was excellent and in the middle of Simpson Bay, was conveniently located.

We were attracted by the pretty open air veranda with a view over Simpson Bay but we returned the very next evening to dine again because of the superb food and service. It was one of the nicest experiences we had on the island. There is much care and consideration given to make all the dishes special and delicious. You are treated like royalty from beginning to end. So do yourself a favour and dine here while in St Maarten.

Amazing! One of the best restaurants and dining experiences we have ever had. Great staff, amazing food, and RUM!! So good, we went back for a second night in a row. The staff was fantastic, the food was delicious, the Mojitos are amazing, and the Homeade rum is one of a kind-a must have! Highly recommend. I wish they opened a SO French in NYC so we could go all the time! Well deserved 5 stars! Thank you!

This was our first visit to St. Maartin and found So French within walking distance of our resort. It is located on the 2nd story which gives you a beautiful view of the bay. The restaurant is clean, with linen tablecloths and napkins, open windows (but still very comfortable inside). The staff was very , professional, polite, kept our glasses full and dirty dishes promptly removed. They also make homemade fruit flavored Rums which taste incredible. While I'm not a big seafood eater, my friends talked me into trying the sea bass. The taste was incredible and cooked to perfection. Portions were perfect size. Highly recommend and we will be back on our next trip.

We come to St. Maarten about twice a year and usually trek to Grand Case for French options. Only last year we remarked how great a French restaurant would be near Simpson Bay. Our wish was granted and then some! Fantastic food, wonderful service and an incredible view of the bay and amazing sunsets. A nice variety of dishes, sauces that are not overly heavy and flavors that keep coming. And don't skip desert! You won't be disappointed.
