Anyone who has spent a holiday in St-Martin knows that a trip on that island is a gastronomic adventure. Over the past 6 years, my wife and I have been to many incredibly good restaurants in St-Martin. Of all those, the Astrolabe is our favourite. Located on the beautiful Esmeralda Resort of Orient Bay, the Astrolabe charms us before we even get in the restaurant. After a nice day on the beach, shortly after the sunset, it is a real pleasure walking through the quiet resort to arrive at the nice stone step entrance of the restaurant. The gastronomic experience starts right there as we look at the menu and start smelling the French cuisine aroma mixing with the tropical scent of the surrounding garden. The next pleasure is to get in the restaurant and be warmly greeted by Thomas and Amin. In our opinion, those two individuals are the best hosts on the island. With friendly manners and a great sense of humour, they enhance the cosy ambiance of their exotic restaurant which sits around a beautiful pool and palm trees. The setting is perfect for a great dinner. However, this comes with a certain difficulty which is to decide on what to choose from a menu offering a great selection of soups, appetizers, meats, fishes and desserts. We have solved most of that difficulty by going there more than once. We have tried almost every item on the menu and have appreciated every combination of courses, presentations and flavours. The service has always been excellent. Moreover, the Astrolabe has live music with local artists playing and singing three nights a week. This adds a special touch to a restaurant that is already very special to us. Thank you Thomas, Amin and all the staff at the Astrolabe for always being so good! We cannot wait to visit you again.
