We wanted to go to a restaurant in Orient Beach that offered fine dining for one of our experiences during our stay at St Martin. Astrolabe not only met our expectations, but exceeded them!! Definitely a wonderful restaurant to put on your "must" list when staying in Orient Beach or on the island! The ambiance the staff and the dining... More

We had dinner there on New Year's day 2017,and considering the fact that it was a busy Newyears, everything was perfect ! Nice menu, so so wine list but good, the waiter offered us a rack of lamb that was not on the menu and it was sublime.....nice atmosphere by the pool. You won't be diapointed.

I've been here several times over several years, and the experience never disappoints. Excellent cooking, great selection on the menu, the staff are beyond friendly and professional. I have nothing negative to say, like the title says, excellent restaurant!

We went on a Friday, which has a prix fix menu of Lobster as a special. All I can say is wow! The place itself is very cozy, with tables around a pool and very friendly and warm staff. The food is truly spectacular. The prix fix menu included any appetizer, a full lobster as a main course (easily two... More

We mostly enjoyed the very beautiful relaxing atmosphere overlooking the small courtyard pool. the staff were friendly and professional. The menu looked good but we came specifically for the Surf and Turf special for 35 € per person. It was pretty good and decent value.

Breakfast every morning for 13 days by the side of swimming pool and also evening meal on some nights. Service brilliant as again was the food. Entertainment on Friday evenings with a fixed price on 2 course and 3 course meals. Food at its best.

Astrolabe is located in the Esmeralda resort. The food is always very good. Dinner is served around the swimming pool. The surrounding trees and foliage separate it from everything in the area creating a lovely oasis. The lighting is soft, but adequate. But Friday night is special. First of all, it is Lobster Night (always delicious and beautifully prepared). The... More

We came here after hearing about the Monday night "steak and lobster party" featuring live music. I pictured a lively scene with dancing. Well...not so much. The live music was a duo who played covers and they were fine. But a party scene, this is not. What it is, is a romantic restaurant with pool-side tables and very good food.... More
