After 22 trips to SXM, this was our first stay at the Esmeralda and our first visit to Astrolabe. We loved the hotel so much, we are already booked to go back in November, and we cannot wait for another meal at Astrolabe. We have...More

We had a very high end experience at Astrolabe. We went on Friday night- recommended for Caribbean lobster. We were not disappointed. As we had no trouble walking into any other restaurant in Orient Bay that week, we did not book ahead. Though they were...More

Astrolabe came recommended by a local French resident. Food & service were excellent; great pate'. The outdoor setting by the pool was lovely & intimate. We hope to return for live music next time. The desserts were delightful too.

We resisted coming here as we had already been staying at the resort. We were pleasantly surprised by what was probably the best meal of our trip. No beach view, it faces what was probably one of Esmeralda's Villas. Very chic decor, with tasteful original...More
