Dining in St Martin, the "Gastronomic Capital of the Caribbean"!

Known as the "Gastronomic Capital of the Caribbean", St. Maarten/St. Martin offers the widest variety of cuisine and prices of any other island in the world! We boast well over 300 restaurants serving anything from local BBQ ribs and chicken, to first class French fare cooked by famous chefs imported for the season from Paris. It is said that one such chef, searching for a lighter side of French cooking for those vacationing in warmer climates, invented Nouvelle Cuisine right here in Grand Case. 

Thelma from Big Wood Grill, Sint MaartenOther than local style and French culinary delights, worldwide cuisine is well represented on the island with choices from Italian, Tex-Mex, Thai, Vietnamese, Indian, Japanese and Chinese, to name but a few. There are also a number of outlets that specialize in health foods and vegetarian menus. And you will be astounded by the extensive wine lists and coc ktail menus offered by many of the island's dining havens. Prepare to put on a few pounds in St. Maarten/St. Martin! 

   And yes, we do have McDonalds, Burger King, KFC and Subway's for those of you that must have a fast food fix every couple of days. One could eat at a different restaurant every day of the year and never repeat themselves once.

Bon Appetit!
