Port Royale in Marigot once was a trendy place that had the best selection of top-notch restaurants anywhere in the Caribbean. It's been slowly going downhill for many years and now Tropicana is the only place left that is worth eating at. The food is still pretty good, but I sense that this restaurant is getting tired and will be... More

Found Tropicana on a stroll at the marina. We had a table for four near the entrance – the tables outside were all occupied or reserved. All four starters and various main courses (both fish and meat), were well prepared, tasty and decorative. A good wine to complement the dishes, We actually had no room for dessert but shared the...

We make sure to always have at least one dinner here when on the island and after more than 20 years it never fails. Had gazpacho, escargot in puff pastry (do not miss this), a beef tenderloin special and the rack of lamb (very rich) with goat cheese. And to finish, of course the profiteroles. Christophe and Nadage never fail... More

Went 4 times during our 2 week vacation in Saint-Martin. Was there also last year. Still the best restaurant around. They have very nice food and they have sumptuous deserts. A reservation is a must since this place is always full. I made my 4 reservations on the first day of our arrival to the island. The service is also... More

Every time I go there I'm never disappointed. Salads are a must try, it's not only a few piece of lettuce and like you have everywhere else, absolutely tasty and enough to satisfy your appetite. Team is really friendly and let you feel in a "family restaurant" where everyone knows each other.

This was our last evening in Saint Martin and evening meal here really crowned our holiday. We started with a tart: scallops and fennel with superb sauce. Main courses, red snapper and sea bass were perfect. As also desserts, eclair and mousse. Those we enjoyed with great wines, as their wine list is really great. Owner and all waitresses were...

Enjoyed special appetiser of snails with duck breast in a sauce and an carrot soup with shrimp. The entree was beef tenderloin sliced with froie gras and a sauce. Presentation and taste were excellent.

Was told to make sure to go to Marigot to try this restaurant. It lived up to expectations. Beautiful locale in the inner harbour. Attentive staff and great food.

Make a reservation and go!! *Great venue: Reserve a table along the harbour. (You'll be shielded by the awning if it happens to rain.) Lovely view. *Friendly service. The entire staff wants to make sure you enjoy your visit to their restaurant. We watched as the owner expertly handled a minor issue that arose with one of the diners. Everyone... More
