Before I go any further : pool side dinning is a must for me. Be it with friends, family ir that special someone a pool side table is the only way to go IMO.
The food is always delicious. Fine dinning, great wine and outstanding service even when they are busy. Theme nights are also nice with live music. Friday night Lobster party is my jam!

Astrolabe has a great menu with something for everyone. They started us with a lovely champagne cocktail, which was very gracious. There were four of us and we all ordered appetizers, seafood entrees and shared a dessert along with two bottles of wine. Everything was delicious but the profiteroles really stood out for me - I could have eaten them all myself they were so good!

Their price is a bit pricy but they provide a good attentive service. During the off-season, the entertainment is only Friday night. When we were there, the local people were there to enjoy it, too. I had sole, duck, pasta, salad, and beef during our stay. The pasta was not as good as I thought. The salad had too much cheese so it became a bit salty for my taste. But over all, it is a good restaurant.

After 22 trips to SXM, this was our first stay at the Esmeralda and our first visit to Astrolabe. We loved the hotel so much, we are already booked to go back in November, and we cannot wait for another meal at Astrolabe.

We have been to many restaurants on this island, and Astrolabe was one of the best.
We had breakfast there every morning (continental with fresh fruit salad, delicious croissants and bread, coffee/juice) which was always delicious and service was quick and friendly.

The dinners are absolutely amazing. We went twice and both times had fantastic meals.

Escargot - Amazing. Lobster ravioli with a coconut sauce - rich and lovely. On the first visit - Mahi Mahi with a maple glaze and my BFF had scallops. Second visit - Arctic Char with Grapefruit Risotto and my BFF had the Prawns. Desserts are decadent.
Service was always excellent. Lovely staff .
We look forward to our next breakfast and dinner in November.

For some reason, in our previous trips to St. Martin, we had never eaten at Astrolabe before, even though we stay just a few blocks away at La Playa (a.k.a., L'Hoste). We have driven all over the island to try restaurants, and here is what has to be one of the very best right under our noses in Orient. What a meal! The ambience with the table around the pool is unique. Like Pavo Real in Playa del Carmen. Low-keyed live music from a 2-female combo added to the atmosphere. Abby started with crayfish bisque, and I had a trio of fois. Then she had scallops while I had mahi-mahi. Both outstanding. We chose the 3-course fixed-price menu for 49 Euros. Desserts were creme brûlée and profiteroles. Just wonderful. Astrolabe deserves its high rating. We rated it #1 of all the restaurants on this trip.
