“The Best in My Book”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2012

Spicy continues to stand out as one of the top restaurants in St. Martin. The atmosphere is grand and romantic, the food is spectacular, service is excellent, and the restroom is the cleanest of just about any restaurant on the island. Overall, it is a great experience to go here. With the 1 Euro = $1 cash exchange rate, the price is competitive with the best restaurants on the island.

“For Meat lovers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2012

If you enjoy a side of beef brought to your table on a sword, you will love Spicy. It was new when I first went and we had a fantastic experience.

“Great French & Italian food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2012

We've spent our last 2 anniversaries there because the food is truly marvelous and Sophie and Olivier are excellent hosts. The wine list isn't huge, but there is a great selection of quality French white Burgundy. Best selection we've found on the island, and believe me, we've looked!

“Not a good choice”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2012

Ordinary and dull. Food was bland. Portions were small. I believed the reviews. I was sorry. It is not a good choice. Those people who liked it probably didn't eat at the really good places in Grand Case. I wouldn't recommend this place.

“Nothing special”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2012

With all the restaurant possibilities on the island, I would not go back. When we arrived there was a table of 6 just finishing their meal. The owner Sophie spent a great deal of time talking with them so that we had to wait for our drink order and then wait again for her to come back to take our order...there were no other tables occupied..yet our experience was dependent on the lull in conversation on the other table. The food was ok...again nothing special. The bill was $100 per person..which I do not mind paying at Le Pressoir..but not for mediocre.
