We ate their today at lunch. Ordered a scallop and asparagus appetizer (chef said no asparagus today but he could do eggplant) it was divine. Three lovely scallops in beurre blanc with a delicious minced eggplant patty with a selection of other vegetable accompaniments. Also had the French Onion Soup gratineed. Delicious, no cheating in this one, seemed to made... More

I love this restaurant. We have been going since 2010. Franz is a great chef. I know the wait can be a little long, but the food is so good that it is worthy.

Ate here as the chosen restaurant for the dinner cruise excursion from our resort. They took our orders before boarding the cruise, we were thinking the food was going to be done by time we arrived. We waited a substantial amount of time. During the wait we observed them putting the sides in the microwave to heat them. Then upon... More

It should still be #1: the food is absolutely delicious, the portions generous, the service warm and friendly, and the price extremely reasonable. My husband and I both enjoyed an escargot appetizer. He had the mixed fish and I had... More

We wandered in here for French pastries and beverages because we wanted to enjoy the view of the boat harbor and the lovely weather. The view is delightful, but the desserts were even better. It was not busy so the staff was very helpful and happy to have us just enjoying the day there.

We took a boat trip from Simpson Bay to have dinner here in Marigot. It was a set menu of Three courses and a glass of wine. The atmosphere is tropical overlooking the harbor. We enjoyed out courses and the chocolate lava cake. The only issue was we were not served our coffee with our dessert and as we waited... More

The setting here is very pretty on the marina. The food was reasonably priced and bountiful. Service was friendly although communication wasn't easy. Amazing food for such a tiny kitchen.
