Fodor's Review

Chef Maxime Orea gets raves for his modern interpretations of classic French cuisine served around the pool at this cozy, relaxed restaurant in the Esmeralda Resort. Corn soup, foie gras terrine with apricot and quince jam, an amazing roast duck with pineapple-ginger sauce, and deliciously fresh fish dishes are just some of the offerings. There are also lots vegetarian choices, a €45 three-course prix fixe, a children's menu, Monday night jazz, and a lobster party with live music every Friday night.

L'Astrolabe Review

Astrolabe is still wonderful but innovative, award winning chef Stephane Decluseau has recently opened his own water front restaurant, l'Effet Mer, in Grand Case. Go to Astrolabe for good food and atmosphere. For top, innovative cuisine get to l'Effet Mer.
