My wife and I had our best meal of the week, and ate at all of the "top rated" venues. The food was out of this world, and the owner was extremely attentive. The young wait staff was also superb, never letting my water glass get less than half full! We ate on the night when live music was playing next door ( Tues) which made it all the more enjoyable! Wish we had time to go back!

We visited L'Estaminet as part of a group and had a set menu. The food was excellent, the french onion soup was very good, and the mains were Snapper, which was beautiful and Steak, which was cooked to perfection. The deserts were outstanding.

As good as the food was the atmosphere was spectacular. Our table was right above the water and the sound of the waves with great food and excellent wine made it truly a night to remember.

My wife and I were at Orient Beach, talking to the couple next to us. They told us that they ate at the best French Restaurant on St. Martin the night before. It was called L'Estaminet and was in Grand Case. They raved about the creative genius of the two women who run the place. The next day, the manager at the Sol Hotel, where we were staying, asked us where we were going for dinner. We said "L'Estimanet". She knows both the Chef and the Manager, and she said that it is an excellent place to eat. So we went to L'Estaminet with high expectations, and our high expectations were fully met. We believe it is the best French Restaurant on the island.

''Chic'' french restaurant

The waiter could communicate in english which was refreshing!!!

And when you get out, you are surrounded by Clubs and Pubs.

Stronglly recommended!!!

As a company of 9 we had on 4th of january a perfect diner at l'Estaminet. Correct service with dishes well balanced in taste and appearance. Perfectly prepared and made with a lot of fantasy and attention. Especially dessert are well designed (daughter had dessert with cigar shaped cream form with a taste and smell of a cigar !), very creative. All at normal (european !) price level. Choise of wine wasn't very extensive yet large enough to have a choice with every dish.
