After ferry from Anguilla we wanted to have some nice drink. Went here, despite the fact that there were no other customers. Our drinks itself were OK. It was just unpleasant to hear how our waitress was all the time nagging to her colleagues, who were preparing evening b-b-q. Drinks were on their menu 7€. But when paying, they were... More

We used this restaurant twice during our stay in St Martin and had the lobster pizza both times - it was fabulous! Very good service - the waitress put our shopping in the fridge whilst we ate. I would give it five stars except for the very busy and noisy road.

The food was ok there and the service was excellent... but it wasn't very memorable. There's better food out there to be had. It's in a tough location on the street so we kept smelling exhaust from the padding cars. If you go, sit inside more away from the street.

My wife and I decided to cross into the French side one afternoon, and found ourselves at the Bistro de la Mer. We were tempted to go beyond our comfort zones and try some French dishes influenced by local cuisine. We were thrilled. What made this even more pleasant was the service -- cheerful, helpful, fun. It cost us a... More

We went there as a family of six, two adults and four older-to-almost-adult kids. It was a Monday and Loterie Farm (which we like) was out intended destination; unfortunately they are closed that day of the week. So Bistro de la mer was selected "on the spot" as a substitute, however our expectations were still Loterie-level. As one can imagine,... More

We were looking for another restaurant and happened upon this one. They had music, which drew us in. The food was good, the atmosphere light and fun, but the best part was the after dinner passion fruit rum was to die for!!! Made by Vichy (sp?), who was such a sweetheart, it was so smooth!!!!!!!! I could drink this everyday!... More

Wonderful atmosphere and the food for lunch was outstanding. Typical french cuisine and all the trappings you would expect. This is a gem of a restaurant and the ambience is perfect - you could imagine that you were at a place somewhere on the french riviera!!

Went for dinner. Food was good, abit a bit expensive. They do have fantastic nutella and banana crepes- so much so that we returned a few days later just for dessert!

We came in a large group off a ship. The service was good. I had the mahi mahi which was very good and a particularly large portion. My wife had the mussels and fries and again the portion was surprisingly large. We also had French onion soup which was very good. Wine was good. Crepe with Nutella was, of course,... More
