We have visited St. Matin almost yearly for over 20 years. No trip would be complete without a dinner at Bistro Caraibes. Each year, it seems to get better and better, but I can't figure out how. The entire staff seems to remember returning diners and greets them warmly. There are no bad choices on the menu- only too many... More

Phenomenal Dining experience. The waiter suggested a good bottle of wine. The escargot was excellent. The Chef's Filet Mignon was so perfect and tender that it melted in your mouth. I was out with five other colleagues and each one commented on the presentation, the exquisite taste of the food and the warm atmosphere of the restaurant. The waiters worked... More

I tink this is one of those restaurants that asks people to promote it on Tripadvisor. It is good but not exceptional. I'd rather eat at La Villa or Auberge Gourmande.

I worked in a lobster house for a number of years. I never had lobster thermidor close to this good. The staff was generous and thoughtful. Every detail was in place. Buy your girlfriend lobster thermidor and she will love you forever. Promise.

We had another amazing meal here on Saturday night. The starters were Smoked Salmon, delicious and my friends had the Snails (traditional). They loved the snails in garlic butter. The mains were excellent. Filet Rossini, was fabulous. The beef was so tender and the foie gras, delicious. Veal Scallopini is my friend's favourite. The Magret de Canard was excellent. Finished...

This was our third year on the island and we never miss le restau du freres Meziere. Their bouillabaisse is fantastic: the freshest fish and and a rich broth redolent of lobster. My wife has the scallops in a lardon flavoured cream sauce. YUM. The restau is conversation friendly and the service impeccable. WE cannot wait to retrun next year.

This is the third year that we have dined at Bistro Caraibes and we have never been disappointed. The food and service are the best we have experienced on the Island. Some of our favorite entrees are the lobster thermidor, fisherman's platter in lobster sauce, sauteed beef tenderloin and the braised red snapper. The desserts have extraordinary presentation and are... More
