This was our second time visiting the Rainbow Cafe in 3 years. It is just as good as before. Great food, wonderful service, fantastic ocean view, sandy beach, free access to beach chairs and umbrellas (with drinks or a meal), and upbeat music. This is a place that is welcoming, relaxing, and not too expensive. The staff goes out of... More

We have been going to Rainbow for many years and always had a delicious meal. Returned on Saturday night and was greeted by Douglas and his great staff. Food and ambiance were terrific! We had escargot, tuna and whole snapper with a good bottle of wine. We usually do not repeat restaurants on the same vacation, but made an exception... More

Really great pizza here. We had the Buffalo mozzarella pizza as well as the Pepperoni. I really loved the Pepperoni they used a spicy Pepperoni which was awesome! Kids tried the mozzarella sticks as well as chicken nuggets they liked them a lot and Daddy had one as well when they weren't looking.

We decided to try a different place in Gran Case on our last trip to St Martin in November. We called Rainbow Cafe and made reservations, and were told it was Party Night (Monday), with a DJ. Thought it would be cool. Now, I am 70, but not a prude. The DJ played little but hip hop or rap or... More

We go to Grand Case every year for Thanksgiving and Rainbow Cafe is one of our regular stops for spending the day and lunch. Very quiet, laid-back vibe during the day. One of the best steak tartares I've had in St. Martin. I will give our server a minor ding for asking me if I knew that steak tartare is... More

OMG!!! This place was my favorite on the island. Their menu is amazing I could have had one of each but I LOVED their Tartare with home-made french fries!!! You have lounge chairs on the beach to relax on and the beautiful calm ocean within a few feet. There is nothing like it. The staff was very nice and Jonny... More
