We had a late dinner here and found this restaurant through TripAdvisor reviews. They have valet pull up service which is excellent on this busy street! We had the scallops as the appetizer. The sauce was mild in flavor which was great as the asparagus...were fresh and the scallops cooked & flavored to perfection. My husband had the surf and turf. He favored the turf over the surf... I had the sea sampler end found my lobster extremely over cooked. My favorite part of the meal was the mashed sweet potatoes! OMG! I do Not even like sweet potatoes ... but at La Ville I could live off them alone! Wow! The staff was wonderful. Great crew that made the meal that much better. We will be back.More

We had a wonderful meal at La Villa. Everything was cooked perfectly. The lobster ravioli and the eggplant salad appetizers had a lot of flavor, and the fish was perfectly cooked, fresh and delicious! And the service, perfect. Highly recommend—one of our favorites on the...island.More

We've been coming to SInt Maarten for 30+ years. By far our favorite restaurant on the Island is LaVilla. You will not find more delicious food anywhere nor more attentive and excellent service. We have eaten in over 70 countries and would put LaVilla at...the top with the very best. Truly an outstanding dining experience. Our visit to SInt Maarten would not be complete without an evening or two at LaVilla.More

Excellent evening. The staff was beyond accommodating yet not over bearing. The ability to make a reservation on Open Table is great. It all starts with a complimentary valet. Parking can be challenging otherwise. The wine list was adequate and the menu was full of...selections only a dart could help with. We ended up getting the trigger fish and the scallops. The fish was simply prepared to allow the sweetness of the meat to come through and the coconut based sauce on the side complimented it very well. For dessert we were talked into the popular puff pastry ice cream and chocolate which didn’t disappoint. Ouf.More

La Villa has been our must go to restaurant in Grand Case for over a decade. My wife and I always make it a point of dining there at least once a week when on the island. Christophe, Florence, Cedric and JC always make you...feel most welcome and like you are part of there extended family. This is one restaurant you don't want to miss.More

We had a perfect meal. The food was exceptional and the service second to none. Our waiter, JC, made the night memorable and kept our glasses full. After dinner flavored rums were excellent.

Finally made it back!! We both had the prix fix dinner, and everything was great. For apps we had marinated Marlin and sea scallops with mushroom sauce. Dinner consisted of lamb chops (2 chops) and seafood combo half a lobster, shrimp and white fish. Dessert...was pistachio cream brulee and hot chocolate profiteroles. Our server suggest our half bottle wines white and red. The food was phenomenal and the service was excellent as usual. Oh, dinner was topped off with parting shots. Our eagerness to return remains unabated.More

While being on a French side I always wanted to try escargot and frogs' legs so this place appeared to be our choice for it. The atmosphere is very nice, service is exceptional to the point that I felt like I was a celebrity to...get so much attention:) The food is great too but just a little pricey. If you are fine with it, this place is a must have on the island. The area itself is under a question. Lots of restaurants and shops around, it felt a little noisy. Plus ts right by the road. Besides, saw police cars in the area which made us think the area isnt the safest. I think this restaurant deserves to be at a better place overall.More

The food was delicious. Best meal we had on the island during our vacation. We wish we had gone more than once. The portions weren't too small. We did the 3 course special for 49 euros. A hot appetizer, main course, and dessert. Well worth...the money! The staff was great. Made our group laugh a lot. Have to give a special shout out to JC because he was great, took pics of our group for us, and brought out tasty shots on the house. Will definitely be sure to visit if I'm in the area again!More

From the valet parking; incredible service; amazing food; and romantic atmosphere; all the way thru the 'call a taxi' dessert rum, La Villa is, by far, our favorite dining place. Everyone there goes out of their way to ensure you have a wonderful experience! FANTASTIC!

Although I'm a male wheelchair user, they suggested I use the female bathroom, which was just about possible for me, but tricky. Don't assume it's OK.
