Tuesday night is festival night in Grand Case. The main street is lined with stalls on both sides, with folks selling food, clothing, arts and crafts. Tuesday night in Grand Case should not be missed. After visiting all of the stalls, we wanted to try a Lolo for dinner. My wife had bought a beach bag in one of the stores, and I asked the store manager, who had been working in Grand Case for years, if one of the Lolos was better than the others. She said that "Skys the Limit" is the best, in her opinion. They make sure the food is always fresh. So we decided to give it a try. As we perused the menu, Elvis came over and urged us to come in and eat. Other reviews mentioned Elvis. He is quite a nice guy and a great salesman.
The other Lolos used charcoal grills. "Skys the Limit" uses a smoker. That sets it apart. Some other reviewers complained about the wait. Smoking food takes longer than charcoal grilling. If you are in a hurry, try one of the other Lolos. However, I can't understand being on the island of St. Martin, and being in a hurry. Relax. Enjoy. Go slow. Our salmon was delicious, and the price was right. There is one thing to watch for. One of the "advantages" of going to a Lolo is that a meal is cheaper than at one of the restaurants. When you look at the menu before you come into Skys the limit, it says the salmon is $10. When you see the salmon dinner on the paper menu, it is more than $20, but it comes with a sampling of a number of different sides. I am not complaining. I am merely suggesting you look at the options. I opted for the salmon and one side - rice and beans. The combination of salmon and rice and beans was a large, excellent meal. If you get the complete platter, you will have enough food for a small nation for a week. (slight exaggeration).
I rated this Lolo "Five Stars". What I mean by that is that it is a great local, informal place to eat. I wasn't comparing it with a formal, traditional French restaurant. Any visitor to St. Martin should try both to get the full flavor of the island.
