First let me say that the restaurant is gorgeous. With the lighting, the plants, the setup it is easily one of the most attractive restaurants I have ever been to. The food is well prepared and presented and tasty. However the owner and her daughter really gave me the impression that they would rather be somewhere else. From the recitation of the specials and desserts to the lousy attitude in explaining how I could not leave a tip on my Visa with a chip they seemed distant and even rude. Show some passion for your food and respect for your clientele especially when they are paying some pretty hefty prices for food and drink!

In our four visits to St. Martin, this is probably the best restaurant we have visited; and it is the setting that gives it the extra edge. The food was, needless to say, expensive but good. Dinner for the four of us was $444.00 without the tip. On our next visit, I'll be a little more selective about a before dinner drink and order off the menu, rather than the specials that were offered. We will certainly go again on our next visit..

While listing this retaurant in Grand Case, it is really outside the main village a few miles in a very secluded private setting.

We are twice here and it used to be our favorite restaurant on the island. It still is a top choice however they are busier now and the quality was a touch off. The meat was overlooked for medium rare and that has never been our experience. The helpers don't seem to be communicating all that well with Charlotte the charming daughter server. We felt badly for some neighboring diners who were lactose intolerant. Charlotte handles it will but never followed through with the other helpers. One night it too way too long just to get the bill. We are used to long wonderful French dining but the staff missed the mark.
We will always return as we believe Christian the chef us outstanding and its the best foie gras on the island.

Sol e Luna is tucked away in Mt. Vernon, but is not to be missed. The dining room is veranda style with lush comfy furniture, quiet music playing in the background and a lovely, attentive staff. The food is a delicious and flavorful blend of French cuisine with added flare from local ingredients. We also stayed in the guest house right above the dining room and had the added pleasure of walking right upstairs to our "home" after dinner. A meal here is a must while in St. Martin.

In my opinion, this is the best restaurant on St. Martin. If you want a truly French Restaurant experience this is the place to eat.
