On a really hot day it was lovely to sit at Antoine's in a stylish air conditioned restaurant, overlooking the beach. Service was friendly if a little slow. Free wifi. Ordered mahi mahi fish and red snapper served with potato dauphinoise. Food excellent. Slightly more expensive than other beach restaurants but well worth it. Busy and popular during a lunch...

There isn't much open after the ships leave but we were able to catch this place open. Its not cheap but the meal was good. I had lobster which was cooked really good. My daughter had shrimp cocktail that was a little hard and overdone. Everything else was great.

We have been visitors to Antoine's for years. My husband dreams about their duck! I must say that the owners and staff of the restaurant are so friendly and delightful they make you feel like family. The food is fabulous. (I had fish and of course my husband had duck!) We highly recommend this lovely restaurant. It is certainly worth... More

We recently vacationed in St. Martin. We have been going there every couple of years since 2003. Our first stop has always been Antoine's in Philipsburg. We had heard that it was under new ownership and we're concerned that the quality might have suffered. Fortunately, we were wrong. The fresh seafood, fresh pastas sauces, etc., were all excellent, and the... More

My wife and I ate dinner twice here and had a great time. We had sampled the fine restaurants in Grand Case on a previous trip and so wanted to see what the Dutch side had to offer. Glad we did as this was a very enjoyable experience. The location and setting is reminiscient of places we had gone to... More

Why travel all the way to the French side of the Island when you can find quality oceanside French food on the Dutch side, complete with complementary valet parking in the center of Philipsburg. Casual atmosphere, ocean front view including the lights from the cruise ships. Having heard about the delicious Red Snapper from 2 separate diners at the resort,... More

Two of my very favorite meals here in SXM are the Lobster thermidor & the Crispy duck. I was concerned after hearing that Jean Pierre sold out. No worry. Same Menu, same Chef, the Grand Mariner Souffle is still excellent. If anything, the Lobster has gotten better. The View in this setting Still Never disappoints. (Surprise....if you so desire, you...
