Glad we found this place! We found it from reviews and our hotel didn't know of it and was recommending elsewhere but glad we persevered and went. Great food & service. Ask for a spot out on the terrace.

Fantastic Food and service and view with a feeling of being in France. The wines were smooth and delightful and the cheese plate is wonderful with a variety of selections including a Blue that was rich and smooth. We will have to dine here again.

We recently ate dinner at Tropicana on the first night of our St. Martin/Sint Maarten vacation. The TripAdvisor reviews are absolutely correct. It also won hospitality points when we stopped in around 7 p.m. with no reservation; they accommodated us at a beautiful waterside table....More

Fantastic restaurant! Staff was great and the food was very creative and outstanding, especially the rolled salmon with leeks and ginger. As expected the desserts were fabulous! No surprise the restaurant is rated tops!

"Island casual" describes it well!
Can't find the hours of operation anywhere. Was planning on going Monday; but some restaurants are closed them. Any help would be appreciated. Should we make reservations?
