My husband and I just returned from St Martin and enjoyed a wonderful meal at Tropicana. We arrived without a reservation (which is a no-no in St Martin) but the delightful host told us to come back in 45 minutes as he got us a table. We enjoyed escargot, red snapper, an amazing seafood penne, and even came back the... More

Had a very nice table on the harbour although don't come here thinking you are going to see large boats. Spring rolls were tasty, fish entrees good but not great, our dessert was tasty but didn't blow me away. Staff very friendly and helpful, seems to be the best place on the harbour. Wouldn't trek across the island to eat... More

My wife and I didnt have a reservation but were able to get a table within a half hour. The food was very good and the wine that only they carry was very good for the price. The service started out great and then there was a large table next to us who seemed a little difficult and our waiter... More

On the recommendation of friends who visit frequently, my wife and I visited Tropicana for lunch yesterday. It was also recommended that we arrive early, as they serve fresh mussels on Fridays and they go fast. Just to get our bearings, we located the restaurant at about 10:30 a.m. and were warmly received and given a reservation at 1. My... More

With guests we decided on Tropica for its traditional and at the same time innovative cuisine and always a pleasure to the eye and the palate. We had escargots in puff pastry, a salad with warm goat cheese, onion soup and gazpacho as appetisers, while for the main it was tenderloin and sole. Surprisingly enough we still had space for...

We have been coming to Tropicana for over 10 years. During our yearly 2 plus week vacation we dine at Tropicana for 2 dinners and lunch. The food, and the staff are amazing. Every year my son celebrates his birthday at Tropicana and the chocolate mousse is to die for.

On the marina in Marigot, with many outside tables. Spirited atmosphere, varied menu centering on fish; the specials of the day were excellent.

We have been returning here for a few years now. Always make sure we make our reservations in advance. Never a bad meal or dish. Everything is great and the staff are wonderful. Don't forget to stop by my friend Serge's place a few doors down and buy some shoes or a bag (Desmo) And definitely don't skip the dessert... More

Eat the reviews and decided to stop in for a late lunch while in Marigot. So glad we did. Excellent, professional, friendly service. Wonderful menu and excellent food. Listen to the waiter's recommendations and you can't go wrong. if this place is past its prime then it must have been off the hook when it was in it!

Walking through the harbour looking for something to eat we walked by Tropicana. It was getting late and the host said he could fit us in but apologized that the table was at the back of the room. Went for a little walk while our table was being set up. Most of the other restaurants were not as busy except... More
