The name really says it all for this one! At Paradise View you’re surrounded by breathtaking views of the island and ocean. It’s almost hard to pay attention to anything else while there! Choose between savory or sweet crepes (or be like us and choose both!) or other French classics. This is a perfect spot of a romantic lunch with a view. Or if you’re looking for something tres French to do over the weekend, join them Friday and Saturday evening for their Raclette nights! Nothing says je t’aime like French cheese! If you can’t get enough of this beautiful place, you can also visit Paradise View with us on our culinary road trip of St. Martin!
The French influence on St. Martin manifests itself in many different ways, including cuisine. Tropicana is one of the best French restaurants on the island (a high compliment considering the huge amount of options) thanks to its incorporation of local ingredients into classic French dishes. You can take in views of the marina while enjoying the colorful interior, or sit outside. Reservations are highly recommended to ensure your night goes off seamlessly.
Located on the Dutch side of the island, Sheer is a true hidden gem – one that is worth the search. The small interior of Sheer allows for an intimate and romantic setting. Although the menu changes regularly, foodies will love the interesting mix of ingredients and flavors. This Valentine’s Day they’re offering a four-course meal that will impress any date.
While this option technically isn’t a restaurant, it will make you feel like you’re right in the middle of a romantic movie. At Seaside Nature Park you can ride horses through expansive and beautiful trails right alongside the ocean. On this specific trail, you can toast with a glass of champagne as the sun sets on your romantic evening. If that isn’t enough, you also get to go into the water with your horse and roast marshmallows at a campfire. This is definitely a romantic outing you would never forget.
Is there anything more romantic than sitting with your special someone and listening to the sound of waves crashing into the ocean? Combine that with tasty dishes like grilled red snapper and lobster bisque. If you really want to spice things up, try their different flavor infused rums (which you can also try on our food tour!)
Owned by a Chef who was born and raised in Sint Maarten, Temptations is one of the best and most delicious ways to savor the authentic flavors of the island in a romantic and upscale setting. Temptation is the ultimate place to take your date for a special occasion or dreamy night out.
If you enjoy long walks on the beach and candlelit dinners for two then this is the spot for you. Dig your toes in the sand and let your hair down at La Cigale. Enjoy a candle light dinner right on the beach with tables that are so far apart you’ll feel like you’re alone. This is truly one of the most romantic and unique dining experiences you can have in St. Martin.
Mario’s is a favorite among locals and those who frequent the island often. With its unique cuisine that blends Caribbean, French, and Asian flavors and beautiful outdoor seating overlooking the bay, Mario’s should be on every couple’s restaurant bucket list.
If you and your sweetheart are craving Italian food then look no further than Mezza Luna. The pasta and pizza are mouthwatering, and the wine list has plenty of options (including some great Chiantis!) You can dine inside in the calm and modern interior, or outside on the beach where you can smell the salty air and feel the beach breeze.
