We just returned from our 20th trip to St. Martin (beginning 1992) and Bistrot Caraibes continues to be our favorite restaurant. The foie gras with mango appetizer is my all-time favorite dish on the island. The friendly, professional service is every bit as good as the food. Come here for cusine that combines the finest French technique with local flavors.

While walking down the main street in Grand Case, my husband got a kick out of seeing the people pick out their own live lobster and then having their picture taken holding it, so we had to go there so he could do that! He had his grilled and they had it cut open for him so it was easy access to the meat. For what they charge though, they should have left the claws on because that is where the best meat is! I has scallops and they were fabulous! The server was very attentive and helped us pick out a wine that we would enjoy. We are very surprised at how much is charged for lobster considering it is one of the few things on St Martin that isn't imported!

Great food and serVice, first drink on the house, food is catered with the upmost standards (or better) than a classy French restaurant in Paris. You get to pick your own lobster and get a picture with it before turning on the magic. There are plenty of restaurants in Grand Case and of all the ones we tried out this one was by far the best.

I just came from Gand Case after great week of vacation. It is a second visit to the island. A few years ago we had amazing dinner at the Bistro Caraibes and decided to visit it again as soon as we came. This is the place to go for dinner!!!. We spent 6 out of 7 evenings their. We tried almost everything on the menu and LOVE everything. Appetizers: snails, frog legs, tuna tatami; Main course: beef tenderloin with duck liver, Duck breast, lobster for 2 (classical and Thermidor), red snapper; Desert: homemade ice-cream with nougat - just to mention our favorites.
Relaxing and beautiful ambience. All stuff are extremely pleasant and superb service. Owner is always there and treat you almost like a family. We love the place and hope to go back there soon.
Forgot to mention exquisite wine selection and ginger rum. Rum is bistro production and you will get it for free at the end of the dinner and if visit the place 3 times will bring home a bottle of it ( I had two to have warm memory during cold times).

This food was one of my favorite meals during my entire stay on the island! I had the Whole Red Snapper and my wife had a Steak Filet. Excellent food, great service. Real French Atmosphere. The cost was very reasonable and they offer a food "passport" that if you eat there and 2 other restaurants near by that you can get a free bottle of rum. Very short walk from our hotel, (Grand Case Beach Club). Overall great value and highly recommended! This is a must visit location.
