We were visiting Sint Marteen and wanted to experience eating in a Fench restaurant in the French side of course, with my daughter. Everything was excellent. We started with a crab/ eggplant appetizer, then lobster and shrimp fettuccine. We ended the meal and shared a chocolate cake dessert. What an experience! Amazing food!!

Seafood served with abit of French island flair. Muscles, lobster, scallops all very fresh, sauces and creme wonderfully subtle while robust when needed. Excellent service with good wines. Best on island.

Incredible food, all done beautifully and deliciously, accompanied by smiling, gracious service delivered with humor and attentiveness that is never overbearing. Lobster, scallops, accompanying veg, all done perfectly as to taste, texture, and presentation. Pick your own lobster from tank open to restaurant and street. Immaculate setting in romantic Grand Case. Truly French food with island emphasis from French owners with island attitude and smiles. Brief but well-chosen wine list. Can be romantic, fun, and delicious at once.

The best of the best in Grand Case. Everything on the menu is done to perfection, from the starters to the desserts—and of course the after-dinner shot of spiced rum!

This was our first and best dinner out during our week in St. Maarten. The service was exceptional.

I got the lobster thermidore and it was delicious, and great that they do the work for you.

We got desserts which were very impressive - creative and delicious!

The prices were very reasonable.

We stayed on the Dutch side of the island and at least when we were there at the end of June this street was still pretty quiet so we were glad that we set a pickup time in advance with the taxi driver who brought us over.

Bistrot Caraibes is our favorite restaurant in the entire Caribbean. They never fail to impress. The seafood dishes are always cooked to perfection and they are always paired with the most delicious sauces to complement and enhance the dish. Thibaut and Amaury are superb hosts and always make us feel welcome.

Gave our table away after 12 minutes and were obviously overbooked on NYE. No phone call either. Waited for an hour and still could not seat us. I’m embarrassed for a restaurant that used to be so good. Went two doors down and managed a table and a better experience. Been coming to Grand Case for 20 years and never been so disappointed!!!

Dinner (and on new year's eve!) at Bistrot Caraibes is always a highlight! This dining spot has been one of our all-time St. Martin favorites for over 20 years. Thibault and Amaury are excellent, welcoming hosts, and servers Stephanie and Nadia are consistently gracious and helpful. We look forward to our next dining experience when we return to the island. Merci!

We had a lovely meal a couple of days ago. Only main course and dessert. The only disappointment was the profiteroles- they were hard and the ice cream not great. The creme brûlée was good though. We would recommend you go there.
