Dining here was a last minute decision based on a recommendation of a friend. Thank You Bill! Everything was amazing! We were greeted warmly and shown to a nice table on the pool deck. Do not think pool, think water feature. It is a beautiful...romantic setting yet casually comfortable at the same time. The fresh crusty bread and olive tapenade was very good. The amuse bouche was a yummy piece of art. Between four of us we shared several different appetizers and entrees, and desserts, and each dish kept getting better. Do not miss the cappuccino soup as it is a once in a lifetime experience! Lobster, cognac and fois gras together! The onion soup was hearty and delicious and the fois gras tasting was superb. The scallop entree and trigger fish were very fresh and sauced expertly. The lamb and the filet were cooked as ordered and tender. Plating was beautiful, portions plentiful and seasoning perfect. Salt and pepper were on the table but no one reached for them. Crepe suzette was yummy and a fun show. Creme brulee was the lightest we have had and the raspberry dessert was super yummy! Our server was professional yet friendly and attentive without being intrusive. A magical evening!More

After a Covid break, we were able to return to SXM and visit the Astrolabe restaurant. For years we wanted to eat there, but unfortunately it never worked out. But this time we went there. We received a very friendly welcome. Table next to the...pool, very nice atmosphere. The menu offers something for everyone. Our choice of dishes was perfect! Aperitif and wine were also top. The restaurant is highly recommended! (Romantic Date) Thanks to the team and the kitchen crew.More

Amazing food. That olive tapenade served with the warm bread is so good. Had a sampler of the salmon tartare and it was delicious. French onion soup was not my favorite but the escargot was excellent and my wife was raving about her pate. The...lobster was the most tender I’ve ever had but I wasn’t the biggest fan of the sauce. Regardless, still very good and that risotto was just scrumptious. Profiteroles were decent but man that raspberry neopolitan is something I will dream about! Service was excellent and live music on Fri night was a perfect touch. Better than any of the fine dining restaurants we’ve had in Grand Case so far. We’re thinking about returning for another dinner during our trip.More

Great choice for a romantic dinner with your special someone. The tables around the pool are beautiful. The have live soft music on Fridays and Mondays. There's a prix fixe dinner that's almost anything on the menu

We had dinner on a Monday night looking forward to the great menu and the live Jazz. The dinner was fantastic. We had the Prix Fixe menu and several other entrees along with great desserts. Service was wonderful and there was a wide variety on...the menu to choose from. The only disappointment was there was no live music as advertised and there wasn't even any piped in music. Lovely setting, great attention to detailMore

Friday nights the restaurant offers lobster specials and live music. There was a three-course package at 54 Euros, including lobster - everything was amazingly prepared, presented, and served. The live music was a combination of hits in English or French, very suitable for high dining....There were about 10 tables around the pool (we had one there) and another 10-20 inside. Highly recommend getting a pool table for the ambiance, nice breeze.More

We didn't use the restroom, however there is a ramp from the main building to the dining area outside. So, that would make me believe that the bathroom is accessible for the physically challenged.
