We'd just arrived in St. Maarten, staying on the Dutch side. It gets dark early here in May, the sun sets at about 6:30. So we didn't want to be driving around in the dark. The resort person suggested Antoine, which was only a short drive, French food, perfect! Antoine's didn't disappoint. The food was great and so was the... More

Amazing dinner with a view. Escargot to start. I had broiled lobster, my husband had the red snapper. Both were fantastic! Don't forget the chocolate soufflé. To die for! We will definitely come back!

Visiting the island for our 30th anniversary, we were looking forward to a great meal here, based on other reviews on this website and the concierge at out hotel. However, our experience was not only disappointing but extremely disturbing. We arrived at 7 pm for our reservation, and found only 2 other tables filled. I thought this was odd so... More

The grilled lobster was superb and the view spectacular. Fresh French bread and butter, freshly made iced tea and sweet delicious peach Melba for dessert with espresso. I shall return again and again. A bit of French atmosphere and dining on the Dutch side

This restaurant is on the boardwalk and once the cruse ships leave many of the places roll up their sidewalks. But Antonine's stays open and has excellent food. We had 3 glasses of wine, a dirty martini, and two appetizers and bred for $63. I had a scallop dish and it was perfection. The sauce was exquisite, in fact so... More

On a really hot day it was lovely to sit at Antoine's in a stylish air conditioned restaurant, overlooking the beach. Service was friendly if a little slow. Free wifi. Ordered mahi mahi fish and red snapper served with potato dauphinoise. Food excellent. Slightly more expensive than other beach restaurants but well worth it. Busy and popular during a lunch...

There isn't much open after the ships leave but we were able to catch this place open. Its not cheap but the meal was good. I had lobster which was cooked really good. My daughter had shrimp cocktail that was a little hard and overdone. Everything else was great.

We have been visitors to Antoine's for years. My husband dreams about their duck! I must say that the owners and staff of the restaurant are so friendly and delightful they make you feel like family. The food is fabulous. (I had fish and of course my husband had duck!) We highly recommend this lovely restaurant. It is certainly worth... More
