Marigot, the capital of French St. Martin, offers some of the charm of a small Gallic town, with a good dose of Caribbean ambiance. There are many outdoor bars and restaurants, some of the best places in unexpected locations. During the winter months, Wednesday and Thursday nights see Marigot truly come to life with street entertainment and many local bands playing live.

Along the waterfront at the market place and close to the Marina Fort Louis in Marigot Bay are several well established restaurants. As you walk or drive by, you will be captured by the delicious smells of the open-air seafood grills. For more informal dining, local fare at fantastic value can be found in stalls at the Market Hall.

A center of great dining and nightlife is the Port Marina Royal, a yacht harbor surrounded by attractive establishments, offering a variety of different food styles. The food is great at most restaurants and 'people watching' from one of the outdoor tables enhances the entertainment value of the evening. There are also a number of cabaret style restaurants around the town where you can dine whilst watching a show.

Marigot is definitely a good town to explore and discover restaurants 'off the beaten track' and many of the small side streets behind the main port road harbor more culinary secrets. And of course there is plenty of opportunity to celebrate and dance the night away after dinner - if you still can!
