The food is average with nothing spectacular. Only the dessert was good. The service is absolutely miserable, unattentive and impersonal. Would not go back again. A lot of much better choices on the island.

Attentive service, delicious food- very flavorful and with imagination. This is not the first time I visit this place and it is never disappointing. Highly recommended.

Truly fabulous. Service and atmosphere is outstanding. We had Lobster ravioli for appetizer, then lamb rack for main. Superb. Wine selection is impressive with grand and premier cru on list and many other fine french selections. I recommend this restaurant as a must try in grand case.

We go every year and if anything the food gets better-we had stuffed quail as main and it was supurb-the owner-manager is extraordinarily attentive to all of his clients. If you closed your eyes as you ate you would think you were in a 2 star bistro in Paris!!!!

My husband and I ate here as the final meal of our honeymoon. It came highly recommended to us by almost every guest staying at our hotel. They did not disappoint. Easily the best meal I have ever had. We had the escargots as an appetizer. I had the filet with the blue cheese sauce and my husband had a... More

Been going to L'Auberge for over 20 years and the food is consistently amazing! Went there twice on my last vacation and was not disappointed by either meal. I highly recommend for any visit to SXM. You may have to wait - even with a reservation, but well worth the wait.

I had high expectations after eating at this restaurant last year and L'Auberge Gourmande did not disappoint! Even better the second time around. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu, the chef is unbelievable. The dishes look like a piece of art and actually taste as good as they look. Highly recommend the Chilean Seabass and Profiteroles for... More

Just finished my 3rd meal in 10 days on the island at L'Auberge. Discovered this restaurant and over the years can't help but keep coming back. Pascal and his team are over and above. They will explain everything and never rush you for your table, it's as if you were at their home! I had the Fois Gras to start... More
