“Unexpected and Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

We spent the day in St. Marten while on a cruise and were not sure what to expect when we stumbled upon this quaint restaurant. Late in the afternoon we had the whole place to ourselves; the service was simple and quiet, but the view and the food was fabulous. My husband and I love mozarella salad, have had it in several different cities/restaurants throughout the world, and their version ranks at the top. Absolutely delicious. Watching the school-children joyfully playing on the beach as we finished our meal was the perfect end to a perfect lunch.

“A Grand Case Restaurant”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

After staying almost a week on the french side and having several french foo foo meals, we decided that we wanted Italian food. While this was not our first choice (the one we originally went to was out of business), we were very happy that things turned out the way they did.

One of their specials that night was spaghetti and meatballs and they were very good. It was just what we wanted. They are a "seaside terrace" so the view was very nice. The service was very good and the staff were very personable.

Definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone.

“great view, creative food”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

We stopped there for a lunch and were pleasantly surprised. We had the tomatoes with mazzarella cheese salad and the tuna capresse. Very nicely presented and quite good. Also had a great wine with it. The waiter was quite attentive, the view was fantastic. Plan to visit again.

“Bring back Ramond and Matteo”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

We always enjoyed Il Nettuno on our trips to St Martin. This year we were surprised to learn that new owners have taken over. We missed Ramond who always greeted people as family and were greatly disappointed that Matteo was no longer employed to sing for the customers. On top of that the food was well below par. Bring back the good old days!

“French food in a formerly Italian restaurant”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

Hadn't visited this eating establishment for two years (2012), when we thoroughly enjoyed the Italian meals. The setting is wonderful, on the water in Grand Case. Very romantic, and the waiter (Tony) was attentive and fun. But we were a little surprised to learn that it is under new ownership, and the meals, while tasty, seemed more French to us than Italian. Presentation was beautiful, but just wasn't a return to what we had enjoyed in the past.
