“Wonderful food and fantastic service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

This was our first visit and I'm so glad we choose this resturaunt. The meal was really wonderful, delicious and artfully presented. The staff was great too. We chatted with several of them and had a very nice shot of homemade vanilla and ginger infused rum with Nancy and Nadia. Terrific!

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

What a wonderful dining experience at Bistro Caraibes! We learned of the restaurant while on a sailing charter from St Martin, and we brought three parties here for dinner - one per week! The service and hospitality were exceptional - we were made to feel like honored guests. Absolutely delicious meals - fresh, creative, and beautifully presented. Bistro Caraibes is a "must do" when in St Martin!

“Always a great meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

We always make sure to include this restaurant whenever we visit St. Martin. While there are many wonderful places to eat on this street, only a select few are consistently busy and this is one of them. A delightful atmosphere, fabulous meals and great hands on service by the owners and their staff. We usually get the fresh sea bass, but everyone will find a favorite. Reservations are a good idea in high season and at popular dinner hours, but if you forget you can stop in and ask...there may be a table and an unforgettable meal waiting for you!

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Fantastic French food!! We went for a special birthday and everything ordered was delicious. Frogs legs and Creme Brulee were a stand out though!! Very pretty inside also.

“Dining Capital of the Carribean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

We had planned to visit a number of fine restaurants in St Martin but after sampling the cuisine at Bistrot Caraibes we were unable to go anywhere else. The passion of these two French brothers for quality cuisine and service is something we had never experienced before. It is the busiest little restaurant on the lively Grand Case strip. The bad news? I doubt any of the restaurants in our corner of the world will ever measure up. I may never be able to have creme brule again. Say Hi to Nadia, she is a gem.
