Best St Maarten – St Martin Restaurants

Best St Maarten – St Martin Restaurants

Known as the culinary capital of the Caribbean, St Maarten – St Martin has a lot to offer by way of world-class dining experiences.






The best St Maarten – St Martin restaurants also regularly make the lists of many international journals and magazines including Caribbean Journal, Conde Naste and Travelers amongst others.


We are SO LUCKY to have not only sampled the best St Maarten – St Martin restaurants but also MANY of the restaurants on the latest published list of the 50 Best Caribbean Restaurants from ‘Caribbean Journal’ and in our humble opinion St Maarten – St Martin has more than it’s fair share of excellent international class dining experiences.


This is not just about the food, but also the ambiance, service, mood, music, view and service……..and as the French would say that ‘je ne sais quoi’ – the indescribable ‘I don’t know what’ that can only be experienced and fails to be relayed adequately in the written or orally descriptive word.










st-maarten-terrace-porto-cupecoyGreat to see that 3 of the best St Maarten – St Martin restaurants made the list!:


Sol E Luna


Le Tastevin


We really believe that Le Pressoir, L’Auberge Gourmand AND, purely for the authentic Caribbean nature and experience – ‘Johnny B Under the Tree’ in Cole Bay should have made the list.




When you are next in St Martin and want a really great evening ambience with lively music, people and an authentically French-Caribbean ambiance you can’t do any better than ‘The Village’ – ‘Le Village’ at Orient Bay.






Bon Appetit!

St Maarten Nightlife – Orient Bay, St Martin

We’ve held back showcasing this little gem because, well, selfishly we didn’t want it to get too popular!

Once a French side locals’ hangout, ‘Le Village’ is now becoming known with visitors as well and the atmosphere on a friday night is cool, relaxed, sophisticated and very friendly.

Watch this short video and see for yourself.

Bliss Outdoor Nightclub

Dance under the stars! With the stars!

At the center of the action in Maho next to Sunset Beach Bar, ‘Bliss’ is usually one of the last stops on a heady night out and dancing under the stars with a cool breeze is often more enjoyable and fun than inside a cold airco club filled with smoke and beer smells!

Bliss is currently under renovation whilst the crew are on tour, so don’t expect it to be open until the season kicks in about November time…..
