We visited St. Maarten after being away for 7 years. Antoine's was always very good, but we were expecting the worst when we heard it had changed hands. It was just the opposite! It's even better now. Wonderful new owner with a warm touch, same...More

Enter the restaurant from Front Street or from the boardwalk seaside. This restaurant offers fine dining with a tropical atmosphere for a reasonable price. The food quality is excellent and the service is tremendous. They even make a hamburger seem like a gourmet meal.

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...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...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...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...More

Unfortunately, I can't. The menu features a number of traditional French dishes along with regional dishes including seafood specialties.
We're trading into Divi Little Bay Beach Resort for an April vacation and we'd like a renovated studio on the second floor with a water view of Little Bay. Also, we would like to be close to the beach but not near the bar. I'm also quite allergic to bug bites. So, could anyone tell me what building/room would best be suited for our needs?

I cannot find the map that I had of the resort but if you contact the resort and make the request, they will attempt to accommodate. I believe that most of the studios that are near the beach are also near the bar area... More
