I dined here last year with my best friend; we came back this year with two more friends! The staff were not the same but equally as lovely as our previous visit. The vichyssoise soup - my favorite last year - was, to my excitement, exactly the same. Chilled, thick and packed with flavor. Everything tasted very fresh. I enjoyed... More

Although I read some good reviews about this restaurant on trip advisor, I must admit I am shocked at how poorly many dishes were executed. Very inconsistent and disappointing. The duo fish dish, salmon and red snapper, was extremely overcooked and dry. The sauce was okay, but no amount of sauce could help. The coquilles St. Jacques were okay, but... More

We rented chairs and umbrellas to sit on the beach in front of the restaurant. Very friendly with "Free" WiFi, but the WiFi never works. There are many place along this boardwalk that offer the same thing for the same price. Beach is nice, easy to swim with some waves and current, many people from the cruise ships.

We almost didn't walk up from the boardwalk to Antoines, because even though the gorgeous deck and we'll appointed tables were inviting, the menu seemed a bit haphazard. But once we sat down, our host walked us through the best of the classic French and island inflected entrees, and we found much to like. I had the duck, at his... More

Needed lunch and stopped in with a warm welcome upon entering. Had escargot "in the shell" with marvelous butter and garlic sauce and French bread to sop it up. The linguini pescatore was hot! in heat not spice with a great sauce, accentuated by their wonderful salad dressing which I applied. The view of the beach and Caribbean Sea only... More

Antoine's is one of my favorite stops for lunch or dinner while in Phillipsburg, the seafood linguini is excellent and I love sitting open air by the ocean with romantic lights so if you are staying on the island, close out your day of shopping with a nice dinner at Antoine's.

My partner and I stopped in for lunch. It was a rainy day in St. Martin and we were out on an adventure. We were not part of a cruise ship tour and went here based on TripAdvisor reviews. I have no idea how they are ranked so high. I had a terrible frozen scallop appetizer that was soaked in... More

We ate at Antoine last week. It was great. The service is a little slow, but the food more than makes up for it. The duck is fabulous, and the lamb chops are not far behind. The setting right on the boardwalk, is beautiful. The staff is very friendly and the price is fair considering the food quality. We will... More

Laid back dining with tables facing the beach and boardwalk. Across the bay a view of the brightly lit cruise ships some of them leaving as you dine provides a changing night scape. Service was excellent. Lobster Thermidor truly the best we have had on the island. Baked salmon filet and red snapper filet on a pepper cream sauce of... More
