Fantastic food at very reasonable prices. The restaurant is not easy to find, but well worth the search.

We had a great meal at LPADI tonight. Our table was on the pier right next to the Marina. This is a cute cafe. Elody was our waitress, and she was wonderful. We love all of our food. The onion soup and salads were great....My onion soup had an amazing sweet onion flavor. My wife had the lobster and shrimp and lobster sauce with risotto. I had the shrimp and scallops over linguine with some vegetables and a special sauce. We both loved our entrées. The wine menu was limited. We did love The bottle of Chardonnay that we selected. There is construction in the area so the restaurant is tough to find. You can park in the Marina parking lot for easy access to the marina and this restaurant. Enjoy.More

I have been to this restaurant several times over past year and have tried many of the dishes - They are now re-open and doing well. Went yesterday withe some friends and everything was great from the food through the service (which can be spotty...at french restaurants in SXM). Carole the server was fantastic and helpful on selections. All of the dishes were nicely prepared, the prices are very good. This place is like home cooking in a pretty setting overlooking the marina. Everyone in the group agreed it was a great choice for a lazy Saturday afternoon lunch. Also reason i picked this was place is that they dont close between lunch and dinner like some of the other places do, so you can go for a late lunch.More

We come to SXM for seven years and Chef Frank‘s cuisine is consistently good. Sometimes, the service is Slow. He probably has the best mussels in SXM, import from Canada. Esp. On Wednesdays when he gets them fresh.

We arrived in St. Maarten tired, and very hungry after a long flight. We stumbled on La Petite Auberge Des Isles. It was 3:00 in the afternoon, and although they were closed until 6:00 p.m., they cooked us an UNBELIEVABLE meal. Mahi mahi, with, I...kid you not, 6 perfectly prepared vegetables including the most delicious sweet potato side I ever tasted. The owner, the wonderful hostess, and the cook were so friendly and so accommodating - it was wonderful. It was honestly the best meal we had while were in vacationing (on the other side of the island or we would have gone back every night.More

Wandered the harbor for a couple nights - the leftover destruction from the hurricanes is terribly sad, but they're recovering. Then we found this ABSOLUTE GEM!!! Mary was as outstanding as the food. Fresh snapper for my love and Lamb for me. The Creme Brulee...was simply to die for!!! Can't wait to go back. DO NOT MISS THIS PLACE!!!More

We went looking for this restaurant after reading about it. It is tucked along a quiet (at the time) Marina. Germs served us and was wonderful and attentive. The Chef, Franze, came out to chat with us. We had the freshest Lobster Pasta dishes, paired...with a bottle of crispy white wine. The marina view was lovely. We will definitely return. Ps/ the French bread was delicious!More
