Exquisite dining experience in an unique setting

Enjoy an exquisite dining experience in Sint Maarten at Mario Bistrot. The well renowned chef Mario relocated his restaurant from Porto Cupecoy to The Cliff when the residence reopened after a complete renovation in 2019. 

Exquisite dining in a distinctive setting

Originally from Quebec, Chef Mario opened the first Mario Bistrot in Saint Martin in 1995 at Sandy-Ground Bridge near Marigot. For more than 20 years, Mario built a solid reputation featuring refined and innovative cuisine. In 2015, Mario Bistrot moved to the Dutch side to Porto Cupecoy on the edge of the Marina. There, Mario bistrot has continued to evolve by the passion and creativity of the Chef.

In 2021, Mario Bistrot was commended as one of the best restaurants in the Caribbean for its solid taste, luxurious location, friendly, and first-class service.

Mario’s particular talent to fusion refined French gastronomy with Asian and Caribbean influences, in addition to the exceptional view over the garden and the azure sea makes it essential for any island visitor or Sint Maartener to stop once or more at Mario Bistrot
