The entire experience was superb! From entering to leaving, not a detail missed! The food was amazing! Appetizers were snails and lobster bisque and they both were delicious. Our entrees were the whole snapper and the veal, both which were so good we ate it...all! Our shared dessert an my cafe martini ended our evening beautifully. Highly re! Small and quaint in size! We will return!More

Bistro Caraibes is as good as it claims to be. We went for the lobster thermidor and the pate. Both were great. The owners and all servers were superb as is the wine list. It is in the heart of Grand Case so get a...ride both ways. A shout out to Thibaut and Naomi.More

The evening was excellent! I had lamb chops which were very good. My wife got a 3 lbs. lobster half thermidor, other half drawn butter. Excellent. My brother got beef tajine. Slow cooked beef shank in a flavorful sauce with vegetables. We finished it off...with crème brûlée and profiteroles. Service was very friendly and excellent. The restaurant has an asset in our server.More

Great location in the Grand Case area, on a restaurant and shop lined street. Service was top notch, with the owners both working and visiting with diners. Had the lobster thermidor, the house specialty, which I highly recommend. Massive lobsters to choose from, and you...get to select them out of the tank.More

We had dinner on March 18. It was very good. My wife had the baked onion soup followed by veal scalloped. Both were excellent. I had sautéed snails and the roasted scallops. I highly recommend both. Excellent wine list. She had a great French rose,...and I had a chardonnay. Service was friendly, timely, and professional. Reservations are a must as all seats were filled. Street parking is difficult, consider a taxi. We plan to visit againMore

The food here is prepared nicely. Their own smoked salmon is the best we have ever had. The scallops and lamp were delicious as were the sorbets. Service could be more attentive, but it is in keeping with the chill island vibe. Highly recommend dining...here. It is worth all the rave reviews.More

Fabulous from moment we entered. My husband picked his lobster for thermidor- delicious. I had the fresh sea bass and it was delicate and yummy. Even the French bread was crispy ( first time on the island) with real butter. Service impeccable. Wine delightful. Will...definitely return. My favorite on the island and I don’t say this lightly as I’m extraordinarily picky.More

Great service. Gracious manager/owner? The food was excellent, as was the atmosphere. Less up-scale feel than some other Grand Case restaurants. Reggret not having time to return on this trip.

Our very favorite for dinner on St Martin. The owners are present and participate. The food is superb. The escargot, onion soup, and veal dishes are our favorites. If you have the appetite try the Caribbean Lobster. Masterful French cuisine. The atmosphere is very friendly...and this is a fun place to be. Don't let the narrow streets put you off as there is plenty of parking in a nearby field parking lot. The cost is $5 which is refunded at the restaurants in the area.More

Mixed opinion here on this restaurant. Lovely atmosphere; good service with one glaring exception; no one comes during your meal to see how it is. We found that to be typical in SXM; no server comes over once the meal is served to check in....Perhaps that’s just not the custom? The staff is friendly. Our meals were of varying quality; the appetizer of Homemade smoked salmon with toasts, onions & capers was excellent. One main course of Sautéed sea scallops was excellent but the special Sea Bass was undercooked & not edible. When the server came to clear she noticed the dish was uneaten & asked why ( the chef examined the dish & apologized & didn’t charge us). Mistakes happen but it would have been nice if the server had checked in earlier. Note: the mashed potatoes were cold ( both this year & last year). The restaurant is always busy & my guess is that the chef made a mistake that hopefully isn’t typical. Excellent drinks! We were grateful not to have to pay for the inedible dish .More

I have been going here for over 20 years ad it is consistently excellent. Last week I returned to St. Martin for just one week and went to the restaurant 3 times and ordered my favorite; smoked salmon and lobster thermidor. Once again, all 3...meals were fantastic. I have eaten at fine dining restaurants all over the world and Bistrot Caraibes is the best by far!!!!More
