Posted on: October 17, 2008 at 11:42AMWhen traveling to Ste. Maarten/St. Martin you will want to visit the French village of Grand Case for its fabulous "restaurant row". The street is lined on both sides with French, Italian, Seafood and Continental restaurants. The waterfront tables are in high demand but we have found that if we arrive without a reservation as the sun is lowering into sea, we can walk in a get a waterfront table at sunset. This is what you want, afterall! Those who dine later and arrive as the sun is about to disappear are missing the beautiful water view as it gets dark quickly. If the restaurant of your choice isn't able to accomodate you on a given night, move next door and try the next one,etc. You will be coming back to try another anyway because you will be hooked! report a problem
Posted on: October 22, 2008 at 7:25PMChez Martine is a lovely restaurant in Grand Case with delicious food. We chose it one evening by walking in and looking around. We like Don Camillo in the city of Marigot also. They have excellant complementary bruschetta. In Philipsburg, D'Livio is always a good choice, especially before the cruise ships leave in the evening, as you can see them docked from your seaside table on Great Bay. Enjoy!
