Great food and service! Worth visiting!
Excellent food, outstanding service and an overall exceptional experience! We love Bistrot Caraibes and it’s always a must for us when we are visiting St Maarten!
We love this restaurant!
One of the best dining experience on the island. The food was exceptional, service was very good. Definitely a place we’ll dine again.
Bistro Caribes in my opinion is the finest restaurant on St Martin. The food is exceptionally fresh and prepared perfectly. The owners Amaurey and Thibault hustle along with the other wait staff to give a very enjoyable meal. Their rum infused with ginger is the best by far. I have eaten here often and would highly recommend it for anyone visiting the island.
Absolutely the best food we’ve ever had on the island. Will be going back again. Outstanding service in a great location. Highly recommend.
Best restaurant in St. Martin. Great food and service.
The evening was a great experience as soon as we walked through the door. The staff was very attentive we were able to pick out our lobsters from the fountain and get a picture taken by the staff holding the lobster. Lobster Thermidor is the house special and it was absolutely delicious. I started with escargot and mushrooms also delicious. Nice wine list too. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
It was lovely from start to finish! We were welcomed & treated with friendliness throughout the meal. The food was excellent , and the presentation was superb!
The food was wonderful. I had the duck and it was delicious. I am still thinking about it days later. The dessert was beautiful. One of our favorite meals in St Martin.
This beautiful restaurant is like Grand Case before the storm. Their happy, positive but thoroughly professional vibe is a joy. As if this wasn’t enough, the food practically shouts “you’re in France” in the best possible way. Don’t ask, just go...
Went there while on vacation. I had the lobster done two ways. It was delicious! Could not have been fresher (you pick your lobster from a tank). The service was top notch! I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Highly recommend getting a reservation! We were a little late for our dinner time due to finding a place to park, but they were still holding our table which was nice!
We started with the French onion soup and the beef carpaccio- both were delicious. The soup was exceptional!
For dinner we had the filet mignon and the sea bass. The filet had a wonderful sear and was served on a bed of mushrooms which were delicious. Sides were mashed potatoes and vegetables. Both were great. The sea bass was nice. For dessert, the chocolate cake is a must! It was incredible!
The reason I gave the food 4 stars was because the steak was a bit overcooked. I ordered it medium rare and it came out more medium throughout, none the less, I would give it another shot because the flavor was delicious and the cut of meat was very nice.
Ambience at this place was nice, cocktails were great, and the service was excellent! We would definitely return to Bistrot Caribe!
My wife and I had a wonderful dinner here. We were greeted and seated promptly. The foie gras appetizer was incredible. We both had a fish dish for our main...I had the Sea Bass and my wife had the Snapper. The sauces that accompanied the dishes were outstanding. We finished with their signature chocolate cake dessert. If it wasn’t for our waitress tipping over my glass of water and pretty much soaking me ( accidents happen) it would have been 5 star overall.
Great!! They aim to please.
Great food, best red snapper I have ever had. Service was great and staff very friendly. Everything was so good we went back for a second dinner prior to leaving St Martin. Can't wait to return!
I wanted to love the restaurant as I adore French food, but the service was subpar and the food was just ok. My lamb was way overcooked and the bottle of champagne we ordered was just awful.
There's a reason Bistro Caribe is consistently rated very very highly and we come back every time we go to St Maarten, the food is terrific the service is great and it would be number one or two on anyone's list to eat. If you're going to be in the French part of Saint Martin make dinner here and absolute must you won't be sorry.
Excellent food with fabulous service! Classic French bistro style with the freshest seafood and classic French cuisine. Waiters are all friendly and helpful with the menu and wine selection. Our favourite spot for a special dinner each vacation.
Amazing Christmas dinner. Food, staff, and atmosphere were perfect.
We went to Bistrot Caraibes with our 9-year-old to celebrate Christmas dinner. It lived up to all expectations, from the friendly greeting to the quality of the food and wine to dessert. I wouldn’t say it is a kids restaurant, but the owners welcomed us in and made us each feel as good as a the food. The lobster thermidor was as stellar as expected, the red snapper was expertly prepared, and the appetizers were delightful.
Worth the trip!
Good, though not amazing, food. Lovely, gracious, service. They really hustle! It’s a mostly open space on the street-side of the Grande Casse restaurant row.
Food is quite good but not excellent. We had four dishes. Stuffed chicken and lamb shank were very good, say 8/10. The other two dishes - snapper and scallops - were 6/10. The place caters primarily to tourists. Very expensive. Indeed, I'd say it's overpriced. Also, the beverage menu does not show the price of a bottle of water - we had to ask the waitress how much it costs. Given that a bottle of water costs over 6 Euro (about 7 US$) I think the fact that the price is hidden is not right.
Outstanding service & cuisine.

Some of the best French food we have had. Their escargo was amazing but the entire meal was wonderful.
We drove to Grand Case from the dutch side of St Maarten to have dinner at the bistro. From start to finish service was attentive not overbearing. We ordered lobster thermidor, sea bass, and snapper. They made son grilled chicken. All of the dishes ordered were excellent and prepared with attention to detail. They have a lobster tank and you chose the lobster when you order the lobster entree. Highly recommend lobster thermidor. Nice wine list and cocktails available too.
Parking may be a little difficult because the boulevard in Grand Case is narrow. There are lots available within a short walk and on-street parking if you can find a spot. You can also take a taxi and enjoy yourself.
Truly amazing. The lobster thermidor is special.
Outstanding as always. The owners are extremely gracious hosts and the wait staff couldn’t be better.
From the moment we entered the restaurant with a warm welcome, until the time we left with a please come back and see us again, this restaurant was amazing. The food was the best we’ve had on the island. The service was second to none. I would eat here every night if I lived here in town. Don’t miss out on the creamy garlic escargot and the Lobster Thermidor. The crème brûlée also was exceptional. My husband had the sliced duck and he enjoyed it tremendously. It was also the birthday week for my husband while we were down here and they gave him a wonderful birthday celebration. This is a restaurant that is not to be missed when in Saint Martin.
We finally made it back here after a few years. The staff is amazing as is the food. There are many quaint tables for two and others for larger groups. Everyone there was having a wonderful time and interacting well with the owners and staff. It’s a place not to miss. Get your lobster there- no where else!
Best restaurant on the island. What a wonderful experience. The staff was so friendly and efficient. The food was over the top amazing. Had to go back a second time. Even better. Can’t wait to go again next year.
Very nice dining experience. Picking your lobster was very fun. I would recommend this restaurant. All staff was very nice.
This was an absolutely amazing dining experience. We went to Bistrot Caraibes on our first night in St. Martin. We were staying in Grand Case at the Grand Case Beach Club and Caraibes was rated fabulously. The rating was accurate and the meal was absolutely amazing. The french onion soup was excellent and the meals were great. My wife had Veal and it was excellent and my Lobster Thermidor was truly a dining experience. Service was very good and we loved our dining experience here.
Not many fine restaurants have survived the recent hurricanes. Bistro is in great shape and continues to
offer excellent food. Service can be a bit slow when busy on weekends, but you are on vacation "in France" so enjoy!
We had the lobster Thermidor and scallops. Excellent!
This was our first visit since Irma, and we were not disappointed. The service, food quality and overall experience is as good as it ever was. Highly recommended!
Amazing food, service and ambient! It was a perfect vacation dinner at Saint Martin with my husband and friends!
