Enjoyed an excellent dinner with family of four. Sat outside under the stars in a tropical garden setting. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The baked Alaska desert was very delicious. Navigating back to St Jean at dark would be challenging without Google maps GPS on the cell phone if your not familiar with the island.

This was one of the most beautiful & romantic settings I’ve ever experienced! We were surrounded by hundreds of palm trees & ponds with frogs singing melodies in the background. It was so peaceful & relaxing. It doesn’t look like Irma touched this area...there’s too many mature trees to indicate otherwise! The food was also delicious. Don’t leave the island without experiencing this amazing restaurant!

Our meal here was amazing! The setting is beautiful, the wait staff friendly and the food was simply fabulous. We had the dark chocolate souffle for dessert and it was perfect! I asked about it at the beginning of the meal as it's not on the menu and was told they only make 10 per night so they held one back for us. It is a very special, romantic restaurant and one of the highlights of our trip.

For dinner, Le Tamarin is one of the most romantic places I have ever dined. After leaving our car with the valet, we were walked through a twisting path through a lovely garden. In the dusk of the evening, tables are spread far apart and surrounded by the lovely dimly lit garden. It is open-air (with a high roof for protection from any rain) and the setting in the warm, soft, evening air gives a feeling of intimacy and privacy.

The food is very good, with some novel combinations of flavors that we enjoyed.

Unfortunately, I have been too busy to write this review over the past month and no longer recall what we ate. I just remember being so impressed with the creativity of the chef in combining flavors and appreciating the entire experience as we luxuriated in the romantic garden setting. I travel a lot and have dined out a lot. But my experience at Tamarin was memorable.

We dined on a quiet Sunday evening, a small party of 12 :) They greeted us the minute we arrived and everything went off without a hitch. That's not easy with a party our size. They had everyone's order correct and all the food came out together which must mean precision timing in the kitchen. I had the roasted chicken, it with the mac and cheese were delicious. My only con was that the table was snug for 12 adults, it was intimate dining for certain. But other than that it was fabulous.
