We had not been to Orient Beach for dining before. Astrolabe was recommended. They have a prix fixe menu that provides the choices of everything on menu. We sat poolside as we felt safer there. The service was a bit slow but everyone was amenable...to our requests.More

We've been enjoying l'Astrolabe for a decade now. It has always been our favorite restaurant in the Orient Beach area. We love the atmosphere - quiet and charming; we love the food - always delicious; but most of all we love the people who work...there. We've watched them face natural disasters (Irma) and now a pandemic. Somehow, they remain upbeat and positive. They have a passion for what they do and it shows. This last visit, we had the best meal we have ever had there. We were there for the Monday Surf n Turf dinner and everything was incredible.More

In an island of incredible restaurants, Astrolabe stands out for the amazing food, wonderful service and overall atmosphere. St Martin is full of wonderful restaurants, many relaxed (which is fine), but Astrolabe was like a special night out. Just wonderful and creative.

An absolute must dining destination when in French Saint Martin. Perfect setting for a romantic dinner. Excellent service, friendly staff and fabulous cuisine. Third time for us and we’ll certainly be returning.

Great location, beautiful restaurant. Food was authentically french and there were plenty of options for all. My daughter loved their tofu and our friends claimed it was the best foie gras they’ve had. Be warned that their creme brûlée can feed a whole family!

Astrolabe is a special dining experience situated by a pool in the Esmeraldo complex. This is our special dinner location when we visit SXM. This trip we had dinner on Christmas night and then our farewell dinner before we left SXM. The menu is always...a winner but this trip they had a special price meal which I jumped on with lobster bisque, foie gras duo and a whole Caribbean lobster. Now that was a tasty meal. My wife had onion soup and beef carpaccio. We had great service by Fafi ( and others) and our custom drinks prepared by Pascal. Btw, music is set up every Friday by a local artist Thomas, thanks for everything....More

My husband and I came for dinner on a Tuesday night and had a great three course meal for 45 euro. One of the most outstanding dishes was the lobster bisque with hazelnut whipped cream. The dining experience was top notch, with lovely bottle service...and a gorgeous view of the pool. The entire restaurant had a open air feel. Don’t miss the gem!More

We didn't use the restroom, however there is a ramp from the main building to the dining area outside. So, that would make me believe that the bathroom is accessible for the physically challenged.
