“Absolutely Delicious!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Do not visit this island without going for dinner here. We love to dine out at nice restaurants. My family enjoyed everything from our starters to the dessert. It was truly one of the best meals we have ever eaten and that was true for each of us. The grouper melted in your mouth, the scallops were delicious and butterfish special that night was amazing. We each had to try a little from the other's plate because we kept saying yummmm as we were eating. The staff is exceptionally attentive to those dining.
We look forward to our next visit to the island because our first night back, we will be there to dine.

“Just eat here!!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This was beyond fantastic food with a very personal touch from the owner. Sure its a bit expensive but it is worth EVERY penny. I would have paid more, but don't tell anyone ...haha. Save room for dessert!

“Tantalizing tastes abound”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Carole and Ina have put together a menu that has delightful bends that will have you enjoying savory, sweet and even an occasional "pop."

We tried the lobster bisque, and goat cheese salad for starters. We got adventuresome and thoroughly enjoyed pigeon cooked two ways, smoked and confit. Ending with the amazing chocolate medley.

Presentation was award winning and price reasonable, this dinning opportunity should not be missed!

“You can't go wrong, with L'Estaminet!!!!!”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

We have been going to St-Martin's twice a year, for the past 5 years. We ALWAYS go to L'Estaminet on the day we arrive in St-Martin as well as the last night we are in St-Martin. That way, we know our trip starts and ends on a good note. The owners Carole (who does the service) and Ina (the creative chef in the kitchen) are wonderful!!! The food is excellent, the price for the wine is very reasonable. You have to have the chocolate dessert, it is to die for.

“Outstanding!”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

In our opinion, the best of many good restaurants in Grand Case in St. Martin. The service and the food presentation are also phenomenal.
