Read many of the reviews for the top rated restaurants in Grand Case... as others have said this restaurant really should be higher in the list!!! Had the menu for €75 in which each course was accompanied by a wine - I had the trilogie de poissons which was absolutely beautiful - then came a beautiful melon and lemon sorbet... More

On our first night in Grand Case, we were blessed to land at Le Cottage for dinner. It was Mardi Gras evening, and the first available reservation was at 8:30 p.m. We showed up an hour early, and they worked us in graciously. The cold soup sampler was divine, and the fish sampler made my land-lubber wife re-think her position... More

They were able to find a table for us outside when we didn't have a reservation. My wife had an special oyster appetizer. Sorry but nothing can top a Wellfleet oyster. I had a delicious trio of soups appetizer. My wife had the lamb. It was fine but you would be better getting a fish dish. The potatoes were excellent.... More

Grand Case is packed full of amazing restaurants, but this was by far my favorite. The staff was cheerful, friendly, and attentive. And the food? To die for. I had the risotto with pesto, and my husband had the duck. We both left comfortable full and very satisfied.

8 of us spent the last 10 days dinning in Grand Case. We all agreed that Le Cottage blew away every other restaurant we dined at this year, including the 4 restaurants listed above it. From beginning to end, it was an absolute treat to spend a few hours with Tania, Stephane and the rest of the crew. When it... More

We have been coming to St. Martin for the past 30 years and have always enjoyed the restaurants in Grand Case. We dined at Le Cottage and were very impressed. Stephane and Tania bought the restaurant three years ago and brought in a new chef. The food was perfect... beautifully presented, creative and appropriately sized. The waitstaff was knowledgeable and... More

We just had dinner last night and it is a must. The food was wonderful and the service could not be beat. Tania and Stephane , the owners, waited on us along with their sommelier and waitress. They had six or so vegetarian offerings and gladly put together a vegan plate for me. They served a delicious curried sweet potato,... More

An absolutely perfect meal in Grand Case. We started with the foie gras lasagna and the chilled soup flight and had their sea bass and snapper entrees. We had the sommelier pair white wines with these, and he nailed the pairings. Finished with the banana tart and the best coffee we've had in a restaurant in a week on the... More

Called last minute for a reservation and were rewarded with a wonderful table on the porch. From the amuse bouche to our after dinner cognac, every thing was just perfect. The foie gras lasagna was the best thing I've ever eaten! The vibe was casual but service was impeccable. A first rate meal in shorts and flip-flops - love it!!... More

After reading so many good reviews and personal recommendations, went to try it ourselves. The choice was right. Nice settings, great hostess, and street view table, and combine it all with delicious food and wine - what else to wish. Highly recommend
