My wife and I came in here for dinner and had a great experience. Delicious soups (the French Onion is fantastic), great salads and wonderful entrees. My wife had a seafood pasta and I ordered red snapper that was well-prepared and delicious. We stayed in Nettle Bay and drove to Grand Case. The one-way streets and construction detours were a little unusual and parking can be adventurous but it's worth it. The dining room is cozy and attractive and the staff is friendly and attentive. Thank you for dinner Bistrot Caraibes!

We come here every trip. Once we ran in the massive rain just to eat here. It’s not on the water, but the food will make you forget. Have a sunset drink at Ocean 82 and eat here. Everything from the food to the staff is great. The lobster Thermidor is our favorite. Usually pick a 2 lbs one for one person. We have tried it in other places, but this is the place we love it at the most. Of course the foe gras is delicious. Try the champagne with peach liquor before or after dinner. The owner uses a special peach liquor you will not find in the states unless you pay $40 shipping. You can pick your own lobster and the staff takes a photo of you holding it, if you’d like. Some places here have changed a bit after the pandemic but this place is true to its roots.

Definitely worth a visit no matter where you’re staying on the island. The food is superbly prepared, and the ever-changing menu offers many creative choices. If you’ve come for the signature lobster, you can select one from the outdoor tank and have it on your plate shortly thereafter. Hint:Order 1/2 grilled, 1/2 thermidor for a great combination of flavors. The menu offers many other choices and the wine list is excellent.The owners, who’ve been here for years, are well-known in Grand Case and have helped the community come back from Hurricane Irma. The entire staff is very friendly, helpful and solicitous of their clients. Reservations are essential.

We visited Grand Case for the Tuesday artisan evening market and we dined at Bistrot Caraibes. The staff were super friendly and helpful even when we showed up a few minutes before official opening. I had the lobster bisque, and a red snapper in creole sauce as my main meal. The soup and the fish were excellent! The side of mashed potatoes that came with my meal was unremarkable. I thought they could have used a bit more richness (perhaps butter or cream), but I was not too concerned since it was a side dish. My husband had caesar salad, red tuna Takay (sliced raw tuna with a spicy outer crust sliced thin over a bed of seaweed) as his appetizer and shrimp and fettucini in an excellent cream sauce. He raved about both. Dessert was profiteroles with ice cream split between us. The service and staff were super and a special thank you to Nadia who after our meal contacted a wonderful cab driver to take us back to Marigot . We were impressed enough with Yves the driver to pretty much call him anytime we needed cab services. I have his permission to give out his information, so contact me if you need it.

Nothing bad to say. It´s one of the best restaurants in the island only avoiding me to give the best quaification the situation of the area where they are located now and the prices (which are not expensive for the great quality but far from cheap too). But it´s probably the best restaurant I have tried in Grand Case and one of the best in the hole island.

We drove to Grand Case from the dutch side of St Maarten to have dinner at the bistro. From start to finish service was attentive not overbearing. We ordered lobster thermidor, sea bass, and snapper. They made son grilled chicken. All of the dishes ordered were excellent and prepared with attention to detail. They have a lobster tank and you chose the lobster when you order the lobster entree. Highly recommend lobster thermidor. Nice wine list and cocktails available too. Parking may be a little difficult because the boulevard in Grand Case is narrow. There are lots available within a short walk and on-street parking if you can find a spot. You can also take a taxi and enjoy yourself.

We saved Bistrot Caraibes for our last evening and it was a great way to cap off our trip! The service was impeccable and the food was amazing - delicious and beautifully presented. I got a lobster and they even took a photo of me holding it which was emailed to me a few days later. The restaurant was lovely and quiet but with an active vibe. Low key yet elegant (but not dressy). It exceeded our expectations! Highly recommend it!!

My wife ordered the lobster prepared 1/2 as lobster thermidor and 1/2 grilled. Both were good but the thermidor was outstanding. I ordered the mushroom stuffed chicken and honestly struggled to eat it all because it just wasn’t very good. As of this writing this restaurant is rated #1 on the island so as always your experience depends on what you order. However, I can’t give 5 stars with good conscience after the mediocre chicken dish. The staff were attentive.

If you don't have a lobster, this restaurant is like the others on restaurant row. We had a good meal with good wine and excellent people watching opportunities. The lobster bisque was outstanding but sea bass with chive sauce was a bit dull. The service was great with some servers and not very friendly with the server who greeted us.

Given the very high ratings, we had very high expectations when we arrived on time for our reservation at this restaurant. The decor was pleasant and the place was full of diners enjoying their meals. The street noise is bit excessive at times but this is true for many of the open-air establishments along the street. After being shown to our table, we were provided menus and a wine list. And from this point on, we felt like we had done something to offend the staff. First of all, my seat was inaccessibly wedged in a corner, the table pushed in so far to the wall that it was not possible to get back there. I moved to another seat on the opposite side of the table and transferred the entirr table setting myself. We were there for about 20 minutes before we were offered water and it was still another 20 minutes after that, a waitress took our order. One member of our party ordered an onion soup appetizer and a delicious, generous portion arrived fairly promptly but it it wasn't until the soup was finished that we were offered some bread for the first time that evening. We'd been there for over an hour at that point. Since I had ordered Lobster Thermador, I now had the privilege of selecting a victim from the tank and it was weighed right there in a scale since the meal is priced according to the lobster's size. It wouldn't be for another hour that I would get reacquainted with this animal. During the next hour, our table was visited only once by our waitress at which time we ordered a second glass of wine (which had been dry for at least 30 minutes). Simply put, we felt "avoided." We did see one other couple get up and leave since they also were waiting a very long time to be served but other patrons seemed to be having long, pleasant conversations with the staff. When our main course finally arrived, we were extremely hungry, as it had been two hours since we had been seated. The food presentation was beautiful and the meals themselves were delicious! The only complaint we had was that my wife's dinner of cooked shrimp was stone cold (even though it arrived on a piping hot plate. We think my lobster took a long time to prepare and her meal may have been prepared immediately but we are only guessing. The food was quite delicious. Quite some time after we finished, our plates were cleared, and some time after that, our waitress came by and tossed dessert menus on the table without saying a single word to us. The rest of the evening progressed this way, even after the restaurant had emptied out... long waits while trying desperately to make eye-contact with anyone who worked there. No one ever tried to explain or apologize for the long delays. This was possibly the finest food on the island but also, unfortunately, accompanied by some of the poorest, most disppointing service as well.

We are so thrilled to say this place has the BEST LOBSTER THERMIDOR. You are charged market price and receive the entire lobster cut in half. It’s dosed in garlic and creamy butter, I can’t say exactly what it is but it’s the best thing ever. It was succulent. I had the fisherman platter and the lobster bisque was amazing and filling. I loved every bit of this restaurant. Thank you for being superb! Even the mojito were fresh as if it was plucked from their very own garden.

My family and I have been eating here for the past 20 years and it has consistently held a standard of excellence in every aspect with the food, hospitality, service and ambience. It is always the one place that we look forward to dining at, every time we have the chance to travel to SXM, and we usually try and have dinner there more than once, if given the opportunity. The Lobster Thermidor style is absolutely the best lobster that we have EVER had and have NEVER had it any where else in the world that could even compare. Although the lobster is our favorite, there are so many other things that are also wonderful. This is not a place to stroll by and pass up if ever in Grand Case! It will not disappoint!

This is easily our favorite gourmet restaurant in St. Martin. Located in the heart of Grand Case, this restaurant stands out amongst its competitors. The food is sublime, with generous portions. Prices are equivalent to similar restaurants, but the food and service far exceed its neighboring restaurants. The two owners are there nightly, and ensure smooth running, despite the nightly packed house. My favorite is the Tajine, as the meat falls off the bone, with an explosion of intricate and complex flavors. All desserts are mind blowing. When you are looking for a gourmet experience, this is the restaurant to book. We’ve been there at least 6 times, dating back to 2015.

Based on a recommendation from our concierge, we made a dinner reservation at Bistrot Caraibes. Our party of six was not disappointed. The staff was knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. We ordered lobster, lamb, and beef. The food was delicious and delivered in a reasonably paced manner. Portions were generous. They have a good wine selection that is affordably priced. Bistrot Caraibes is a "must visit" restaurant on the island.

Had a fantastic lobster. Prepared with care and delicious subtle flavours. The texture was out of this world as well; so much more butter and flavor, nothing like any steamed lobster style that you may find elsewhere. Great service, with no noticeable wait time on a Saturday evening when it was very busy. Highly recommended!
