Went here for dinner with my wife - very romantic setting with delicious food and super nice staff. Try the macaroon dessert and the Lobster Bisque ravioli for sure. Also I had the steak, which I loved. My wife had the sea bass, which she said was good - but not great. They still get 5 stars from us overall.

We decided to visit La Cigale as the reviews on this restaurant were very good and from our dining experience were fully justified. Superb romantic location, great ambiance with varied choice of excellent gourmet dishes and a good selection of wines. The staff were very knowledgeable, attentive, and friendly. Impossible to fault.

La Cigale is a great option in St. Martin for a couples night out. The setting on the beach is cozy and intimate. The service was good and the food was outstanding. Strong wine list too!

Tucked away in a little corner of the bay is the waterside delight. The hosts were welcoming and quite accommodating, knew their menu and highlighted some of the specialities with enthusiasm. The setting was as beautiful as the presentation of the food. As one would expect at a French establishment, there was no shortage of foils grois ingeniously incorporated into... More

Description
For the last 17 years, owner Stephane has welcomed you to the palm groves of the lagoon at Nettle Bay where, watching the sunset over the lagoon, you can enjoy the gastronomic, gourmet cuisine in an idyllic setting. Chef Malory Leroux offers daily specials sourced from the market's daily offerings, without forgetting the signature dishes: foie gras in truffle oil, lobster raviolis, Wild French sera bass. Mathieu Maini, the pastry chef, is constantly searching for new creations, such as the already famous strawberry macaroon. La Cigale brings a touch of delicacy which rounds off your meal with finesse. The wine menu, without doubt one of the richest on the island, will undoubtedly seduce you. If reservations are encouraged, it is because this corner of paradise, very busy during the season, is the ideal spot for a romantic dinner.
