We recently vacationed in St. Martin. We have been going there every couple of years since 2003. Our first stop has always been Antoine's in Philipsburg. We had heard that it was under new ownership and we're concerned that the quality might have suffered. Fortunately, we were wrong. The fresh seafood, fresh pastas sauces, etc., were all excellent, and the... More

My wife and I ate dinner twice here and had a great time. We had sampled the fine restaurants in Grand Case on a previous trip and so wanted to see what the Dutch side had to offer. Glad we did as this was a very enjoyable experience. The location and setting is reminiscient of places we had gone to... More

Why travel all the way to the French side of the Island when you can find quality oceanside French food on the Dutch side, complete with complementary valet parking in the center of Philipsburg. Casual atmosphere, ocean front view including the lights from the cruise ships. Having heard about the delicious Red Snapper from 2 separate diners at the resort,... More

Two of my very favorite meals here in SXM are the Lobster thermidor & the Crispy duck. I was concerned after hearing that Jean Pierre sold out. No worry. Same Menu, same Chef, the Grand Mariner Souffle is still excellent. If anything, the Lobster has gotten better. The View in this setting Still Never disappoints. (Surprise....if you so desire, you...

We stopped here for dinner on Sunday night. There was one other table occupied The service was certainly good and attentive. The was well underwhelming. The sea scallop appetizer was 5 pieces of thinly sliced scallop in a cream sauce - not how I have usually had coiquell st Jacque. My wife had seafood soup which had 4 small pieces... More

Been going to Antoines for years. Excellent French dining . I recommend the crispy duck. Very nice menu and fine wine list. Also has a very nice pre fix menu option for a reasonable price. Recommend reservations if you want to be at the water view Windows but you can see the water from all seats.

We have been going to Antoine for the lobster therm on every visit to St. Martin. Our dinner last night exceeded all prior visits. The new owners have improved what was already great to greater. We split a Caesar salad that was easily enough for two followed by one of the best ducks that that we have ever enjoyed. Of... More

You couldn't ask for a better location. The food was solid french food, with a view of the ocean. The restaurant is open with a refreshing breeze and even though it was a bit hot in town it was very comfortable here. We had a lovely waiter as well. Definitiely worth a visit.
