Dining Out in Port de Plaisance

Port de Plaisance is a multifaceted place. Here you’ll find the Princess Port de Plaisance Resort and Casino, which has hosted many of the world’s rich and famous over the years. World-class amenities include the Princess Casino, where you’ll find tons of table games and slot machines. The casino also hosts special events and shows at night.


The heart of the area is its dining options. There are a number of restaurants catering to the global palate both inside the resort and surrounding the casino.


A top choice for dinner is Mélange International Grill. This contemporary tabletop grill restaurant features a menu of international flavors. It’s perfect for a date night or for a large group to engage in conversation and partake in the age-old activity of making food together. Select items are brought to the table for diners to finish off the cooking; it’s similar to the Korean barbecue concept.


Mandarin Pan Asian Restaurant is another sought-after spot, where the specialty is Asian cuisine. The flavors of the East are offered up with global twists to entice diners to go on a taste-tempting adventure. Restaurants such as this are the reason St. Maarten/St. Martin has maintained its claim as the “Culinary Capital of the Caribbean.”


The chefs and staff at both restaurants pride themselves in delivering superb service and quality menu items, and giving diners an unforgettable experience.


Port de Plaisance is also home to one of the island’s most sought-after mega-yacht marinas, Yacht Club Port de Plaisance. This is a popular rendezvous for the professionally crewed yachts that migrate to St. Maarten as their strategic winter base within the Lesser Antilles.


This locale is also the home of The Country Club at Port de Plaisance, which includes the spa, a Frank Provost hair salon, tennis courts and a pool.
