Looking for a place to eat dinner, at say 5 PM in Grand Case, on our arrival day from the US. The lolos I guess are open all day, but I wonder if their stuff will be dried up at that time. I know there is a small pizzeria there. I wonder what their hours are. This would be on a Wednesday, if that makes any difference. If there's not a good option in Grand Case, what about Orient? Not looking to spend a lot of money, just something filling after getting up in the middle of the night and the rigors of travel.

Food is always dried up at the lolo's by late afternoon. But they will happily microwave it for you.

Do you want a good meal for you first night? I always like to get off to a good start, sets the hopeful tone from the getgo.......L'Auberge Gourmande? I think open early. 5.30pm if they don't do 5pm. Can always ask.....

Did them a couple of times years ago and when they started using a microwave, I knew it was time to move on. IMHO, they are vastly overrated.

Not sure what restaurants are open early in Grand Case. In Orient Village Yellow Sub would be a good choice. I am pretty sure that any of the other village restaurants don't open until 5:30 or 6.

bran--NO, definitely do not want to waste the money the first night on a great meal. We will be dead dog tired, from getting up in the middle of the night to catch the plane. Regardless, I know they don't open until at least 6, probably 6:30.

pandp--thanks for the suggestion.

Anyone know what time the pizza place opens in Grand Case? I'm thinking they may be open for lunch and stay open?

The link from rural carrier is correct. We stayed there and they are open all day for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I would definitely eat there and you will love the view esp for the first night

Well, if it was me and my goal was to keep it under $40 I would second the motion for the Yellow Sub. Ate there last month about that same time (5 or so) and everything ran me $35 for two of us. In Grand Case there is the Rainbow Cafe, but I think you told me once that you didn't care for it there. Or, maybe that was Scubaman ... I can't remember. But, you'll spend way more money there and the menu is in euros. I just love sitting on the back deck at that place having a beer! If I may ask, why this particular area? If you are en route from the airport to Grand Case you could always stop at Mark's Place and get a great meal at a decent price. And, those guys are open seven days a week from 11:00 a.m. on. Just a thought.

Thanks, Jeepers. Somehow, someway we always find ourselves at Mark's Place each time we visit SXM. It just happens naturally!

Buddy--looks way expensive for what I'm looking for, for the first night. We are staying at a villa just above Grand Case, should be arriving, if the stars align correctly, around 3:30, if not before. Want to dump the bags and head out for an early inexpensive dinner and an early bedtime!! Yellow Sub would be good, but still wondering about the pizza place in Grand Case. No one here has been there??

We always go to LaVilla when we arrive close to 5pm. Christophe is always happy to see early diners.

Idk if still there, but isn’t there a pizza place at the end of the grand case strip? If you went to the end as if heading to Marigot, it’s there on the left across from Rainbow/Captain Frenchys kind of??

The pizza guy across from Rainbow is great. We have eaten there @ 5:00, he makes it fresh, fast and not expensive.

I agree.....They are over-rated but cheap. I hate when I hear a microwave door slam at a restaurant.

BeachKitten I was thinking the same. Rancho del Sol. We've had their pizza in the past and it was really good. Plus they open for lunch so they should be open for an early dinner.

I don't know if Rancho delivers anymore, but we did have them deliver to GCBC some time back, in the event one wants to eat in.

They still have delivery on their site. wink I was thinking since I know they are open for lunch, they would still be open when you arrive....

That may be a quick and easy option. OR, have Jeannie deliver things to the villa and maybe some pre-made items? Sammiches?

You ask for a place in Grand Case, right? Why not stop in Marigot on your way. Near the ferry dock is a place called Rosemary's (near the walkway to the market sellers) whole meal of snapper, rice, salad for around $14. Very filling, tasty and inexpensive.

I mentioned La Villa because it isn't as expensive as the other places in GC. I would suggest NICE on the water side but I'm not sure when they open up. They're less $$ than other places.

Carol,

What about Ranch del Sol on the hill beteen Grand Case and Orient? I believe they're open all day and you can get pizzas, French food; I think burgers. It's not expensive or fancy. Has a great view.

Where are you actually heading to? The inexpensive places in GC have all gone. There's a place on the main road (by passing GC) just beyond Bounty and the pharmacy on the right side (no water view) very inexpensive but I can't remember the name.

Lots of inexpensive places but not GC. Concordia has a few, Jordan Village Maho area, Fat Tonys, Yvettes, Quartier d'Orleans.

But if it must be GC and water view I'd say NICE. It's where a seafood place used to be near a clothing store, across from parking lot.

Thanks everyone. We may try Rancho, but would probably go there if we do. The last time we went there, which was YEARS ago, I wasn't that impressed. We will probably go to Hope Market and get some things, so may just get something to take back to the 'house' to have. I figure we will be dead on our feet but we'll see. Regardless, we'll be in SXM so it can hardly be bad!!

I don't think they would want to risk stopping with luggage in their car for a dinner. Carol stated she wanted to check in, drop luggage off before getting something to eat.

Carol, a place with great food and very inexpensive is Gutside on the Friars bay Road. Close to where you are staying too.
