We have been going to Auberge Gourmand for years. Our recent visit was certainly our last! In the past, we always had amazing service from Florence and Christophe. They were certainly missed, having moved to start their own restaurant, La Villa. I had gone the week before to make a reservation and chosen the table for myself, husband and our daughter. When we arrived they had given the table next to us to a large group (who had not reserved), cramming us into the corner. My daughter was literally sitting in an archway, not feeling like part of our table. The restaurant owner was there, fawning over the large groups present and vitually ignoring repeat customers of more than 5 years. At one point the staff was setting up a table behind my daughter and they actually lifted chairs over her head. The food was quite pedestrian, with no changes made to their vegetable side dishes since we started coming years ago. The foie gras is still served with the same pear side, good but not spectacular. The salmon was overcooked and dull. All in all a very disappointing evening. Virtually ignored most of the time. Will not be back next year. Pascal needs to recognize loyal customers.

We had a wonderful meal at L'Auberge Gourmand last night. The owner, Pascal, is a wonderful, generous host. Food was great. The rack of lamb was out of this world. Portions are generous. The restaurant is in a traditional St. Martin cottage on the main boulevard. We enjoyed it so much, we plan to visit again on this trip.

On the main street in Le Grande Casse, culinary capital of St. Martin. Outside tables if you want to people watch, inside tables if you want beautiful, romantic decor with more quiet. The food we had was superb. They smoke their own salmon appetizer and it was fabulous. We both had the Chilean Sea Bass which was melt in your mouth delicious, served with a group of interesting little vegetable sides. The owner is always around checking on things. The desserts with fresh cream were delicious. We like to try as many different restaurants as we can when we travel, but we may go back a second time. We were not disappointed and the price for two $125. Complimentary banana rum shooters at the end.

Just came here by chance and it was great. Could have had any dish off the menu as they all sounded great. Went for the fish which was really carefully cooked and tasted 5 star.
As good if not better than a top notch Paris restaurant. In the opinion of a Brit
