Glad we found this place! We found it from reviews and our hotel didn't know of it and was recommending elsewhere but glad we persevered and went. Great food & service. Ask for a spot out on the terrace.

Fantastic Food and service and view with a feeling of being in France. The wines were smooth and delightful and the cheese plate is wonderful with a variety of selections including a Blue that was rich and smooth. We will have to dine here again.

Great choice, we went twice in a week. Great location. Food was fantastic and service impeccable. Recommend the puff pastry escargots and the French onion soup.

In our opinion the best Restaurant on the Island! Everything is amazing. The fish are always perfect, the Duck is beyond words, I've never had a bad special. The crabmeat cocktail is over grapefruit!!! I mean come on!! All creative mixtures with classic French Cuisine!!! Also the wine list is extensive and very well priced. One of the few places... More

The Tropicana is among the finest restaurants anywhere. This cozy french restaurant has great food, great wine and great service. Reservations are a must and in high season well in advance. We started with the spring rolls with crab and I followed that by the veal medallions (awesome) and my wife had the savory profiteroles (amazing). For dessert, I had... More

Upon the recommendation of the owner of our rental, we had dinner at Tropicana on a Tuesday evening during our recent vacation. We were received and treated warmly throughout the evening. Our comforting waitress and the high-energy hostess (perhaps the owner?) both made the evening memorable with their genuinely inviting approach. I had Mediterranean Sea bass with a white butter...

We stopped here yesterday on our way from St Barthélémy to Anguilla and had a delightful lunch at this waterfront setting. The owner was very friendly and accommodating, as we had two young children with us. The food was excellent and the truffle appetizer was out of this world. Tropicana is as good or better than any restaurant we have... More

We brought friends twice this month and both times were excellent. I had the sea bass checks special and my husband had the duck special and both were delicious. We always get the profiteroles for dessert since they are great for sharing. The vanilla rum at the end of the meal is some of the best home made rum on... More

We recently ate dinner at Tropicana on the first night of our St. Martin/Sint Maarten vacation. The TripAdvisor reviews are absolutely correct. It also won hospitality points when we stopped in around 7 p.m. with no reservation; they accommodated us at a beautiful waterside table. The food was delicious. Get the red snapper! Or, if they have a special, definitely... More

Fantastic restaurant! Staff was great and the food was very creative and outstanding, especially the rolled salmon with leeks and ginger. As expected the desserts were fabulous! No surprise the restaurant is rated tops!
