If your staying at the Esmeralda go to the Astrolabe across from the office.Or in the Cul de Sac Ti Bouchen or check the ones in Grand Case. In Marigot the Mini Club Wed & Sat night all u can eat buffet. We haven't missed her buffet in 25+ yrs during our trips.

I love La Petite Auberge des Isles at Marina Royale in Marigot.
They have a price fixe menu that is always delicious!
Some newer restaurants:
Spiga- Grande Case
Spicy- Grande Case
Bajatzu- Maho
Peg Leg has moved over to PDP.

If you're looking for inexpensive but good restaurants, have to agree with Augie on this - you just can't beat Marks although there are a lot of other good and reasonably priced places, too. We also enjoy Lee's for fresh grilled fish or lobster.

IMO the restaurant with the best quality for a reasonable price is Ti Bouchon on the road to Cul de Sac. The service and food are equal to the best Grand Case offers at 70% of the price.

Ti Bouchen is just past the old Texaco Sta. and across from the entrance rd to Anse Marcel on the right side.MOMO has a small sign in front of the house/restaurant.

Yes, its the Cul de Sac rd and to the Pinel boat dock.The restaurant/house is past the new pharmacy same side.I heard Savanna who took over her mothers restaurant Sabastiano's is at Ti Bouchen.We'll have to stop in for dinner in 2 weeks.Across the rd is a reasonably priced restaurant Au Grain De Sel with a parking lot too. It has good food & service so get there early if possible.This place was the best kept secret in the area. Try it but don't tell others. HaHa. good luck.
