Cuisine of St. Martin
American, Beach Bars, Brazilian, Brasserie, Chinese, Creole, French, Indian, International, Italian, Moroccan Snacks
One of the most wonderful things about St. Martin is its cuisine. This is one of the few places in the Caribbean where you can get a “taste of France” at highly reasonable prices, and the availability of fresh fish and shellfish makes delicious seafood a prime menu item.
Being French, dining is taken very seriously: multi-course meals can typically last all evening, although there’s no law stating you can’t eat and run. The best places to grab a fast, delicious bite are the “Lo-Lo”s clinging to the seashore. These small shacks may not look like much, but their openess lures you in with aromas of tasty jerk chicken and grilled fish; real Caribbean cooking at a price of under ten dollars.
