High end, plenty of attentive staff, quiet and friendly restaurant. The menu is a bit limited, and missing some basics, tricky if you're vegetarian; the wine by the glass was sent back twice-fairly undrinkable. Not great value either e.g. €11 dessert is getting up there.

The chef is inventive here and the food is quite delicious. Not one dud course with 5 of us ! We all agreed however that the Brie de Nangis flavoured with truffles was just exquisite and glad we followed the advice of the manager to try it. We all considered this one of the best meals we had had during... More

Although we hadn't booked, as we intended going to a different restaurant, they were able to fit four of us in at a very pleasant table. The menu was excellent and I had oysters and cod with a very nice Sancerre. Could not be faulted.

This is an excellent seafood restaurant. We went with a group and they easily accommodated us. They were very professional while presenting this delicious meal. We would go back.

We came away a little disappointed with this restaurant, food was well presented but some flavours did not marry well together and it was extremely pricy, although the service was excellent.

We have been to St Martin 4 times now and eaten at various places round this beautiful harbour. We decided to try somewhere new and were not disappointed. Fine dining food with each part of the dish individually crafted. Discreet and effective service.

Excellent food and excellent service. One of our favourites on the island, but we fairly easily spent 200 Euros, so beware!

Enough said.Modern cuisine, bit pricey and probably the least favorite meal of the week. Others do it better.

My family and I stumbled across this place whilst on holiday in Saint Martin de re recently. On both occasions it was wonderful! My husband and sister in law had the assiette de mer, I had the monkfish and my other sister in law the cod. The fish was lovely, the accompaniments perfect and presentation fabulous. I could not fault... More
