We usually go once ever time we are in st Martin. Service was excellent Appetizer were great. Dishes have some very different flavors that you are not used to tasting in restaurants. Very delicious. All deserts are excellent. We had a great time Definitely the most up scale restaurant at the marina. Make reservations. Can't go wrong

We went to Tropicana for lunch after the jewelry store where we shopped recommended it; we were so glad we went. The food was excellent and the views even better. We liked it so much that we went back for dinner. We had the escargots, beef tartar, and the lunch and dinner specials. One thing that I really didn't care... More

The food was terrible, they just have like 3 specials that are the only fresh dishes in the menu. The lobster is frozen, it's NOT a hand made pasta, the sea bass was tasteless, its a turist trap! The innkeeper who took care of us in a few words forced us to choose the special of the day, because according... More

We stopped by after visiting the Marigot market and marina areas. We arrived right at noon and most of the best seats were already reserved. We were lucky enough to be seated at an outside table with a nice view. We shared a salad, pork tenderloin special and dessert of the day, all delicious. By the time we finished lunch... More

Everything about this restaurant was first class. From the moment we were greeted, we felt like welcomed guests. The quality of food rivals a lot of places my wife and I experienced while traveling in France. In fact, this was absolutely, hands down, the best place we ate at while visiting SXM.

Four of us ate lunch. We had no reservation but we were seated immediately. It was a Saturday a little after noon. The waiter was busy and a little slow, but that's the French way. We had a nice bottle of wine and some appetizers. One got the Scallops St. Jacques. It was fantastic flavored with garlic and butter. Another... More

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner at the Tropicana. The service was first class and everything we ordered was cooked to perfection. We had a salmon special and gazpacho soup as appetizers, and Dover Sole and Filet Mignon for entrees. All were fabulous! For dessert, the pastry assortment made by the in-house pastry chef was perfect! One of... More

This quaint French restaurant sits on the Royal Marina in Marigot. To help us celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, the manager placed us at a table on the balcony overlooking the water. After a tasty Caesar salad and house wine, we feasted on the dinner specials of pork tenderloin and local fish. To our surprise, "Happy 25th Wedding Anniversary" was... More
