Bistrot Caraibes is a must place to visit for dinner in St. Martin. The lobster tank is a top
attraction. Thibault and Amaury, the two brothers who run the restaurant, provide great hospitality and service. The grilled sea bass in a chive butter sauce is a real hit.

My meal was with my wife and 3 other couples. The service was excellent and the owners were omnipresent and helpful. The art was wonderful and the staff friendly. The open air to the street provided a constantly changing view with the street foot traffic. The food was beyond delicious and the portions were normal. The duck liver, frog legs and escargot were excellent as appetizers and the salads were crisp and tasty. The hit of the meal was the Caribbean lobster from the fountain out front of the restaurant, served either grilled or thermidor. Freshest and best tasting lobster available. The chocolate cake was outstanding. The rum after dinner was delicious. I highly recommend restaurant. This is what all great restaurants should strive for: excellent service, delicious food, and good atmosphere.

Our family of 18 dined at Bistrot Caraibes during our stay in St Martin just after New years. Before we even entered the restaurant, some of the kids were in awe of the live lobster tank outside the front door. With our large group, I had made online reservations with no problem. The ambience seemed like a small French restaurant. The drinks and food were delicious (with several in our group choosing their own lobster from the tank). My husband had the steak which was just ok, but being from the Midwest, it's hard to find a place that can prepare a steak to our liking. The brothers who own the restaurant were delightful. It was the best meal we had while in Saint Martin.

Visited Bistrot with friends. The service was very attentive without being overwhelming. Our friends shared a rock lobster which was huge. My wife had the thai shrimps and I absolutely loved the bouillabaisse. Even though we had chosen not to have dessert, we were offered a dessert "on the house''.
We also appreciated the rum at the end of the meal:)
