We have been going here for 25 years and it has always been great! We miss Jean Pierre but Leo took very good care of us. We stopped in a couple weeks ago for dessert and the Souffle and coffees were excellent. Leo provided excellent...More

We read many good reviews about this place on TA and wanted to give it a try. The place was empty, only one other table was occupied. The food was mediocre, and some items tasted like they came from microwave... Or from a can... And...More

We stumbled upon this restaurant during a shopping trip to Philipsburg while staying in Grand Case. We had planned to revisit L'Escargot for lunch, having dined there in 2010 and 2015, but when we arrived they were closed. Antoine's was a great find. We had...More

Enter the restaurant from Front Street or from the boardwalk seaside. This restaurant offers fine dining with a tropical atmosphere for a reasonable price. The food quality is excellent and the service is tremendous. They even make a hamburger seem like a gourmet meal.

Amazing dinner with a view. Escargot to start. I had broiled lobster, my husband had the red snapper. Both were fantastic! Don't forget the chocolate soufflé. To die for! We will definitely come back!

The grilled lobster was superb and the view spectacular. Fresh French bread and butter, freshly made iced tea and sweet delicious peach Melba for dessert with espresso. I shall return again and again. A bit of French atmosphere and dining on the Dutch side

Unfortunately, I can't. The menu features a number of traditional French dishes along with regional dishes including seafood specialties.

I cannot find the map that I had of the resort but if you contact the resort and make the request, they will attempt to accommodate. I believe that most of the studios that are near the beach are also near the bar area... More
