“Friendly Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

probably the closest restaurant to l'esplanade where we were staying - so of course we overlooked it on our first two visits to St Martin - mistake!

This place is good. Greeted by friendly people, we were seated in a pleasant room and had a wonderfeel meal with a nice bottle of Italian wine. I started with a special of tuna tartar and house smoked salmon which was fantastic. This was followed by delicious house made pasta.

Very satisfying, delicious and comfortable. This is an unpretentious place which know what its doing.

“We keep coming back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

Dined at Spiga twice during our recent trip to St. Maarten. We drive all the way from Cupecoy (Dutch side) to this buried little gem just outside Grand Case (French side). Since we have two small children under the age of 10, we arrive early without reservations as nobody is there yet. One night we arrived at 7pm and it was full. We asked the owner if she could squeeze us in and she said it was impossible unless we left by 8pm. We obliged and made it out by 7:50pm.

Food is fantastic, wine list is great, service is great. The owners are a husband and wife team with chef experience from Italy and London, England. My spouse and I are of Italian decent and have dined extensively in different parts of Europe ranging from fine dining in Spain to rustic dining in Florence. The food here can hold it's own. Enjoy...

“Worth Every Penny”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

We had read about this restaurant in magazines and had not seen even one bad review so we made sure we ate here at least once. It is amazing food at a reasonable price. The restaurant is small so make a reservation. It is on a side street, but parking was easy to find and we saw security people in the street watching over us. I had scallops and shrimp over vegetable risotto. Every bite melts in the mouth. My companions had lobster, steak and seafood stew. They agreed it was the best meal we had on the island.

“Great Italian in the Heart of French Restaurant Row”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

Vacation to the French side and eat Italian...you betcha!! The service was great and the food rivals those restaurants in the Jersey/NYC area. We sat outside on the front porch and it was wonderful.
