Its always a good idea to follow the French locals for the best food in St. Martin. Chef Hervé Sageot has won the gold medal as chef of the year in the local Taste of St. Martin festival several times. A full blackboard of daily specials invariably focuses on seafood. The day's catch is brought to your table for you to "meet" and so you can discuss its preparation (and learn about local seafood). The fish soup is made from rouget (red mullet) and served with the traditional garlicky rouille. But the restaurant serves more than just fish; there are good pastas, lamb, and steaks. On the water, the restaurant has a little beach club, too.

If you are looking for an ocean view restaurant this is not the place for you. The restaurant is in an old creole house with lots for trees around it. The 10 tables are outside on the porch. In one week on the island, I ate here three times. The owner/chef Momo, is a great host. He explains each dish. The prices are fair for the quality of food. This is one of the best places on the island.
