“New menu, new owner! Excellent !”
Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

We were surprised and disappointed that Ramon had sold Il Nettuno. We have been dining here for 20 years. The new owner Amin is wonderful! The menu has changed but everything we tried was delicious! We ate here twice and we were not disappointed. The salads are excellent. The eggplant appetizer is delicious . I had the black ink squid risotto with shrimp . It was incredible ! My husband had the fish pot which was also delicious. The restaurant has been remodeled with a new bar and modern bathrooms. The portions are generous. We will definitely be back!

“Great Food - HORRIBLE SERVICE”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

My spouse and I visited Grand Case for two days and heard great reviews of this restaurant.

So we decided to go - and I have to say, it was a disappointment.

We weren't sure if it was the fact we were American's, but we couldn't help notice that anyone speaking FRENCH in the restaurant had extremely attentive waiters. Our waiter had my table and 2 French families and another American family.

Of course, everyone received water, bread and oil at the beginning, however, the Americans received none of that until we begged for it - and even then, this one particular waiter took his time.

I literally got up and went to the bar and got my own drinks.

The good part? THE FOOD WAS INCREDIBLE.

On a 250 EUR bill, the waiter received NOTHING for a tip.

Nothing more to say.

“The Italian Restaurant on St. Martin”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Beautiful & romantic setting, excellent food, knowledgable and friendly staff. This Italian style restaurant melds the fish and meats of the Caribbean with a traditional Italian flare to create innumerable memorable dishes and they have a lobster tank as well. With all the French food available this is a welcome change and not to be missed, located across from parking lot which they validate. Nice wine list, fresh salads, interesting fresh pastas, delicious fish dishes and hearty meat dishes and special deserts, we can not recommend more highly. Ramon the owner is a huge Washington Red Skins fan having owned the French restaurant in Washington DC, his "retirement" to restaurant row in Grand Case, is DC's loss. Reserve a seaside table, enjoy the view and dine in style in this friendly unpretentious elegant restaurant, we do every xmas, for the past 15 years.

“This restaurant is a GEM”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

We recently spent 2 weeks in St. Martin and during that time frequented Grand Case's restaurant row. Our meal at Il Nettuno was exceptional and surely the most memorable of our lovely trip. I had the veal special- similar to saltimbocca romano, and my wife had the homemade pasta-ravioli. Service was great and the owner most welcoming. The setting speaks for itself. Don't miss this GEM.

“Wonderful Dining Experience”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Il Nettuno is one of our favorite restaurants in St. Martin. We were there in April, 2013 and we always go there a couple times the week we stay in St. Martin. The food is delicious, staff is great and Ramon and Matteo are just wonderful. The view is amazing. It makes for a romantic, fun filled evening. Can't wait to go back next April.
