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 the chef of the year in the local Taste of St. Martin festival several times. Now located right on the water, you'll find a full blackboard of daily specials, which invariably focus on seafood. The day's catch is brought to your table for you to "meet" and for you to discuss its preparation. This offers a great opportunity to learn about local
seafood. The fish soup is made from rouget (red mullet) and served with the traditional garlicky rouille. But the restaurant does serve more than just fish; there are good pastas and lamb and steaks if your preferences aren't fishy. The restaurant is open for both lunch and dinner, and there is a little beach club too.
