As recent guests of the resort, we enjoyed both the European style breakfasts and some dinners there, during our stay. The dinner menu had a few subtle tweaks to some of the items, but the staff is savvy enough to understand that you don't mess with winning menu items. The 'fixed price' menu of 49 Euros per person, covers an appetizer, entree and dessert. A good selection of great French wines to accompany our meals. Dinner service for us was handled by some familiar faces, both in terms of our previous visits and also for handling breakfast duties. Service is excellent....friendly, unobtrusive, welcoming and appreciative. Atmosphere is very relaxing, low key and perfect for diners to engage in conversations.

Astrolabe is a special dining experience situated by a pool in the Esmeraldo complex. This is our special dinner location when we visit SXM. This trip we had dinner on Christmas night and then our farewell dinner before we left SXM. The menu is always a winner but this trip they had a special price meal which I jumped on with lobster bisque, foie gras duo and a whole Caribbean lobster. Now that was a tasty meal. My wife had onion soup and beef carpaccio. We had great service by Fafi ( and others) and our custom drinks prepared by Pascal. Btw, music is set up every Friday by a local artist Thomas, thanks for everything....

Not often you find a restaurant that checks off every box - Atmosphere, Food, Service, Value and a bonus of having a two person singer/playing some lite dining contemporary songs. I am alway suspicious when a restaurant offers a price fixed menu, that they skimp on the portion size - but not here. 49e for appetizer, main course and desert off the regular menu this is truly a value! We had escargot with different a twist, onion soup with lots of onions for apps. For our main courses, we were lucky they had a couple of lobsters left over from Friday night lobster night (included in price fix) grilled with a wonderful lemon butter dipping sauce, a very tasty shrimp & scallops and exquisite sea bass dinners. Needless to say the desserts were outstanding too. And a different twist to the traditional rum shot with macadamia nut for flavor. Checked All The Boxes.

We made our reservation well in advance for the Friday lobster night. We were seated around the pool...very romantic... and opted for the €49 three course meal (which included the lobster!!!). Everything was delicious and the service was great. Highly recommended this restaurant, especially on lobster night!

We had not been to Orient Beach for dining before. Astrolabe was recommended. They have a prix fixe menu that provides the choices of everything on menu. We sat poolside as we felt safer there. The service was a bit slow but everyone was amenable to our requests.

We found the food at The Astrolabe disappointing. It’s okay but not great, particularly for the prices they charge. The service is outstanding however and they had live entertainment - the singer was fantastic! On our first night at The Astrolabe we had the scallop tartar and crab stater, the scallop main dish and the lobster pasta. The starter was very good as was the raspberry dessert that I ordered. Disappointingly however, both of the main dishes lacked flavour. They were both rather bland. The sauce for the scallop main dish was not only bland, it had not been reduced. It was thin and watery and so would not coat the food. The scallops were cooked nicely, but I found the dish to have an odd combination of elements that really were not in any way harmonious together. And though the lobster and the pasta were both cooked beautifully, the pasta was bland. Yesterday morning at breakfast, we were served a fruit salad with fruit so old and mealy that I found it inedible. Even the coffee was not good. The chicken was dry and there was very little sauce on the plate. The sauce that was served delicious. I only wish there had been more of it! Surprisingly, the onions and garlic had not been cleaned. Not only the skin and root were still on the garlic and onions, but it also looked as if there was soil (dirt) on the skin.

During every one of our trips to Saint Martin during the past 10 years, we have dinner at least once. It is our go to restaurant for consistency, great flavors, outstanding presentation, etc. We highly recommend it for a romantic dinner or a nice dinner with the grandkids. They have friendly service and we feel a very good value. The owner is intimately involved in every meal and ensures that all guests leave pleased and content.

Really great food. The best I have eat T Saint Martin so far. Great service: The weither even took care to first serve all the ladies - we have been a group of 9. Food have been provided in the right order, nobody has to wait for anyone. The prices event that high are really worth the experience. They have an option with a 3-courses menu for 49 EUR - that is worth to try! Food looks and taste great!

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.

The live music at the Friday night Lobster Party would have been very nice if the volume had been significantly reduced. Since it was so loud, diners were shouting across their tables to be heard, which, of course, increased the noise level. The waiters were all constantly dashing around, thereby creating an unrelaxed atmosphere. Overall, the four of us at my table found the atmosphere terrible. The menu and the waiter going over the menu with us emphasized how much you could get for $59. Yes, you can get Foie Gras, Lobster and dessert for $59. But the quality is average.

The best of many fine meals we had in and around Orient Bay. The prix fixe menu is an excellent value, offering a choice of any appetizer, main course and dessert on the menu for 54 Euros. We ordered burrata and chilled tomato soup, salmon crudo, sauteed local trigger fish and wild shrimp pasta, and all were outstanding. The wine list had many fine French varieties by the glass. Profiteroles and a lime tart, served with a homemade vanilla liqueur, made for a wonderful finale. The setting, in a colonial-style home that opens onto a long pool, is beautiful and highly conducive to lingering. Full marks to the chef and friendly servers for a dining experience that would not be out of place in Paris or St Tropez.

My husband and I came for dinner on a Tuesday night and had a great three course meal for 45 euro. One of the most outstanding dishes was the lobster bisque with hazelnut whipped cream. The dining experience was top notch, with lovely bottle service and a gorgeous view of the pool. The entire restaurant had a open air feel. Don’t miss the gem!

Came here as recommended by our hotel and were super impressed. Really enjoyed the Friday night lobster special- crab and scallops trio appetizer, lobster main, and profiterole dessert. Super high quality ingredients and preparation. Service was warm and attentive. Music was a little cheesy but enjoyable. Definitely an older crowd but very nice evening.

Excellent food, staff and ambiance. Mondays or Fridays are great for their lobster specials. Nice selection of wines moderately priced as well as high end wines with knowledgeable staff to help with selections. Fabulous onion soup and their lobster bisque is amazing. Their fixed menu options are a great way to experience their food. One of my favorite restaurants on island that I don’t get tired of as the have plenty of quality menu items.

We are locals and have been here many times. L’Astrolabe will never disappoint. We love the location, the ambiance, the service and the food . Lobster Special on Fridays is excellent and great value of 3 course 49€Euros menu. Not to mention the excellent choices from their a la carte menu. Service staff is flawless.
