We recently ate dinner at Tropicana on the first night of our St. Martin/Sint Maarten vacation. The TripAdvisor reviews are absolutely correct. It also won hospitality points when we stopped in around 7 p.m. with no reservation; they accommodated us at a beautiful waterside table. The food was delicious. Get the red snapper! Or, if they have a special, definitely... More

Fantastic restaurant! Staff was great and the food was very creative and outstanding, especially the rolled salmon with leeks and ginger. As expected the desserts were fabulous! No surprise the restaurant is rated tops!

We visited Tropicana on our last night of our trip to Sint Maarten (3/17/2017). The waiter (possibly the owner) was very inviting and the wives wanted lobster. They both got the Half Lobster and its Red Snapper & Salmon Cottage Pie, Chive White Sauce. It was amazing! We will be back next time we are on the island.

We arrived for lunch and our host let us know that there was one table available for lunch. We gave him our names and returned exactly at noon and were seated. The specials included several meat options and fresh fish, but we elected to order from the menu. The appetizer was a layered crab served on a bed of fruits... More

The Tropicana is a top rated restaurant for good reason. The ingredients are fresh, the chef is a master of the kitchen and the location at the marina overloooking the water is ideal. I would suggest making reservations for dinner because the place fills up quickly during peak hours.

Had lunch there today for the umpteenth time. Four guests, four dishes, two desserts and a good, sensibly priced bottle of wine. Everything was great as always,

Outstanding restaurants continue their expertise. Over the years we have sadly seen the Marina area change. We were vary happy to see Tropicana is still very busy. 4 couples dined, several had the special Chilean sea bass, others dined on rack of lamb, jumbo shrimps in pasta, snapper parmesan. All had superb comments. Deserts are to die for! This is... More

Port Royale in Marigot once was a trendy place that had the best selection of top-notch restaurants anywhere in the Caribbean. It's been slowly going downhill for many years and now Tropicana is the only place left that is worth eating at. The food is still pretty good, but I sense that this restaurant is getting tired and will be... More

Found Tropicana on a stroll at the marina. We had a table for four near the entrance – the tables outside were all occupied or reserved. All four starters and various main courses (both fish and meat), were well prepared, tasty and decorative. A good wine to complement the dishes, We actually had no room for dessert but shared the...
