My recent visit on 11/7/16 was by far the best French meal I have had while visiting the island!!! The FoisGras soup and especially the Sweet Breads. I give the Chef and Dani a #2# Michelin Star! Next year we will visit more often. Forever Patron Michael(Sweet Bread Man) and friends

This French restaurant is a hidden gem in St.Martin. Must dine here if you visit St.Martin. Excellent staffs, impeccable service and tremendous ambience with stunning view of the ocean. You're literally dining in front of your private beach! Definitely go back on my next visit!

We expected more from this highly rated restaurant. Very shaky service, a cat walking around, and no fan/AC. Will not be back.

Come early and enjoy 2 for 1 drinks at the bar. Tapas available -- flat breads , chicken skewers, calamari -- then enjoy a delicious Mediterranean meal. Portions are big and delicious. Staff is very friendly. After dinner head to the beach and enjoy the night

Description
For the last 17 years, owner Stephane has welcomed you to the palm groves of the lagoon at Nettle Bay where, watching the sunset over the lagoon, you can enjoy the gastronomic, gourmet cuisine in an idyllic setting. Chef Malory Leroux offers daily specials sourced from the market's daily offerings, without forgetting the signature dishes: foie gras in truffle oil, lobster raviolis, Wild French sera bass. Mathieu Maini, the pastry chef, is constantly searching for new creations, such as the already famous strawberry macaroon. La Cigale brings a touch of delicacy which rounds off your meal with finesse. The wine menu, without doubt one of the richest on the island, will undoubtedly seduce you. If reservations are encouraged, it is because this corner of paradise, very busy during the season, is the ideal spot for a romantic dinner.
