I had eaten here last year and enjoyed it. This year was just not good enough. The tile floor is terribly cracked in the entrance as well as the restaurant. They are in need of a paint job, bathroom was disgusting. Table cloths were dirty black runners left on the table after the previous diners had left. Bread was frozen which is amazing in a place where they have the best patisseries. The "classic caesar" salad was not classic and weird. My entree had no flavor and was very tough. I had to ask for sauce to zip it up which helped a bit but not enough. The waitress didn't seem to care. There was one waitress for 10 tables so service was very slow. We were offered no after dinner drink which is standard in grand case. the vibes were not very good. Not very friendly. I expected a good meal. No one at my table was happy either. Oh well, we won't be going back there next year. What a shame with such a great view of the water. Just needs to be clean and make good food.

We selected L'Effet Mer for our wedding reception dinner. The chef and staff did a wonderful job - we couldn't have asked for better food and service. All the courses came in a timely manner and were absolutely delicious. Before our trip, I emailed the restaurant asking if the accepted Discover Card. At the time, they said yes. After getting to the island and stopping by to double check, they in fact did not have the capabilities to accept the card. We had to make some adjustments, but the staff was very helpful in assisting and making sure they did everything on their part to ensure a perfect evening. Thanks again to ALL of you who made our wedding reception wonderful. Rain and all!
