Fodor's Review

Longtime visitors to St. Martin remember the award-winning cuisine of chef Stephane Decluseau at L'Astrolabe. Now, along with partner Damien Pointeau, he's opened this Grand Case waterfront restaurant. You can hang out on beach chairs outside, but the real action is inside, where creative and first-rate cooking is served with charm, precision, and panache. A tasting plate of foie gras or the incomparable foamy lobster cappuccino soup are fine starters, mains are lively, and desserts are gorgeous edible art. The crème brûlée tasting has three variations on the theme. The €29 prix fixe is a good deal.
