Had a wonderful meal on a recent sxm vacation. Don’t skip the escargot and definitely try the lobster. Everything we had was delicious, the best meal of our trip. The owner was lovely and the service was on pointe

My wife and I were there in April and enjoyed the excellent food and attentive wait staff. The lobsters are excellent both grilled and thermidor, and the dessert was fantastic.

Service was superb. I casually mentioned it was my daughter's birthday and next thing we knew we got a huge sparkler candle with the whole place signing happy birthday to her. Made her feel very special indeed.

We always visit the brothers and Nadia at Bistro. Best Beef and Lobster on the island. Always save room for dessert. Chocolate cake is to die for. Great recovery from Irma and always a friendly atmosphere.

Bistro caraibes was everything you could want and more. While grand case rebuilds it is a stand out. A new favorite and beyond worth every penny!

There is no specific kid menu but they have pasta dishes and I'm sure they would make some basic pasta or chicken for kids. I only used my United Visa to get miles so I didn't check to see if they take American Express.
