Dining in the "Gourmet Capital"

Well, the Frenchmen are known for their "savoir vivre", and this is especially true for food & wine! Thus, when you are exploring the French gastronomy of the island, you can be sure to find many, many places serving excellent food. Some of them are ranked under the top 10 of the Caribbean. On French St Martin, there are mainly three areas with a high concentration of restaurants and bars: Marigot offers you French and international dining, basically along the harbor road and around the bustling, pretty Marina Royale. Grand Case - the Gourmet capital of the Caribbean - is famous for its fantastic Gourmet Cuisine. This little charming fishing village has become a popular destination for top chefs from France, who come to the island for the season. Orient Bay offers a large choice of beach bar restaurants serving international cuisine, cocktails and snacks, along with music and, sometimes, party life. After the damage from Hurricane Irma, both, Grand Case and Orient Bay Village are getting restored or re-built. Quite a number of restaurants and bars re-opened and more plan to be back soon.

61, Route de Mont Vernon

The Sol e Luna is an upscale French restaurant and guesthouse at the street to the Mont Vernon area. Although the restaurant conveys a romantic setting, unfortunately no nice view and sometimes the smell from the lagoon waters in front of the place. Despite the high ratings elsewhere, the editor would select other fine dining places, e.g. in Grand Case. Open for lunch and dinner.

Euro > Dollar Exchange Rates
Euro versus Dollar
Presently, the Euro represents a higher value than the US-$. We understand that many US visitors look for places with 1:1 exchange rates. Please, be realistic, nobody can give away 25% or 50% just because you pay in US-Dollars. If they do so, then the prices had been adjusted before, which means, they were set higher in order to get enough Dollars to pay their expenses in Euro!

At the Forest Café, surrounded by lush green vegetation, you’ll feast your eyes and stomach on culinary creations, prettily decorated with tropical flowers. All dishes are freshly prepared, and made using the freshest ingredients (subsequently, on days in high season, when the restaurant is really busy, waiting times can be long...). Next to the Forest Cafe is a wonderful open air lounge area, tree house style. A relaxing place to either spend your waiting time for the restaurant, or enjoy a 'digestif' or a 'ptit cafe' after lunch. In high season reservations recommended, if you plan to go on a weekend day.
