“fantastic meal wonderful service absolutely the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

We dined at three "highly ranked" restaurants in Grand Case and this was by far the best. The service and the food were the best of the three by far. We are early diners so did arrive a bit earlier then many but were made to feel incredibly special! We started with a glass of champagne on the house which was a festive and a nice touch. The food was fabulous- delicious apps. main courses and desserts. Wonderful and creative sauces. We also loved how beautiful the restaurant is. It's clearly been lovingly redone. But has such a nice feel and character to it. Just loved this place- definitely a special one.

“L'Auberge Gourmande - Holy Foie Gras”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

One of the best in Grand Case.

We didn't make a reservation so we had to wait. They sent us over to the Bar at Ocean 82 for a free glass of champagne each while we waited. Then when the table was ready they came and got us. When we sat down they gave us another free glass of champagne each.

We got a late start and decided to have soup and two appetizers as our meal. We started with the Cream of Asparagus Soup with a seared Scallop. Wonderful and more then enough for two.

We ordered the frogs legs with sweet potato mash. Delicate, delicious and 5 on the plate. More than enough for a meal. We also ordered the foie gras appetizer. Holy cow, we are used to a couple slices of foie gras, this was a whole duck liver the size of a baseball. It was cooked perfectly and just melted in your mouth. We could barely finish it but tried really hard and were successful. No room for dessert.

The restaurant is very small and very popular we highly recommend a reservation. Lovely art on the wall by a Marigot artist named Roland Richardson.

This is a beautiful restaurant. The service was excellent, and the food was delicious! I especially enjoyed the French Onion Soup as well as the dessert special of the night.

“Good restaurant, a bit slow service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

We went to the L'Auberge Gourmande after trying several others in Grand Case. The food was very good, but not great. The service was a bit slow, it took around 30 minutes to get our main courses (we didn't order appetizers). We noticed some other tables getting a detailed explanation of what was served and we didn't get it - not sure if we got a bit neglected because we didn't order the appetizer.
Still, it is worth a visit.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014

I would give it 4.5, but i'm giving it a 5 to pull up any 4's out there. Spectacular meal, lovely service, seats on the patio, complementary glass of champagne, too. Charming, flavoring, interesting menus. The portions were small, which is probably why Europeans are so slender, their flavors are so rich, combinations so sublime that you are full on taste, not quantity. Room for dessert. We arrived early, the plus part of being American, we got a table without a reservation. Ten minutes later, they were lining the street to get in.
