We had a great lunch at the Tropicana. Food was excellent, my husband had the Dover sole and would highly recommend it. French Onion Soup superb. Customer service unsurpassed. Banana Rum fun way to end the meal.

You are always made to feel welcome at Tropicana. It was a busy lunch time and everyone was bustling about, but the manager greeted us warmly and seated us promptly. We ordered the lunch special, which was the most tender delicious veal that we have every eaten. It was served with yummy mashed potatoes and an incredible morel cream sauce.... More

Tropicana is our favorite on the island for over 30 years. It is consistently delicious. The chef, Emmanuel is a highly skilled artist who creates imaginative specials each night as well as delivering tried and true staples on the menu year after year. The filet mignon is always a winner, best on the island. We love the fettuccini with garlic... More

Glad we found this place! We found it from reviews and our hotel didn't know of it and was recommending elsewhere but glad we persevered and went. Great food & service. Ask for a spot out on the terrace.

Fantastic Food and service and view with a feeling of being in France. The wines were smooth and delightful and the cheese plate is wonderful with a variety of selections including a Blue that was rich and smooth. We will have to dine here again.

The crabmeat cocktail is over grapefruit!!! I mean come on!! All creative mixtures with classic French Cuisine!!! Also the wine list is extensive and very well priced. One of the few places... More

The Tropicana is among the finest restaurants anywhere. This cozy french restaurant has great food, great wine and great service. Reservations are a must and in high season well in advance. We started with the spring rolls with crab and I followed that by the veal medallions (awesome) and my wife had the savory profiteroles (amazing). For dessert, I had... More

Upon the recommendation of the owner of our rental, we had dinner at Tropicana on a Tuesday evening during our recent vacation. We were received and treated warmly throughout the evening. Our comforting waitress and the high-energy hostess (perhaps the owner?) both made the evening memorable with their genuinely inviting approach. I had Mediterranean Sea bass with a white butter...

We stopped here yesterday on our way from St Barthélémy to Anguilla and had a delightful lunch at this waterfront setting. The owner was very friendly and accommodating, as we had two young children with us. The food was excellent and the truffle appetizer was out of this world. Tropicana is as good or better than any restaurant we have... More
