Default Sint Maarten/St. Martin

Has anyone stopped at Phillipsburg, Sint Maarten on a cruise and taken a trip to Marigot, St. Martin and the French side? I'm just interested in visiting the french side, doing some shopping in Marigot and going to a good restaurant for lunch and then going back to the ship. How long does it take to get there? We would rather take a cab then a bus if we can. What transportation options are available for this and where is a good place in Marigot to shop and eat, or any interesting places in Marigot we should go to?

Marigot is like a little bit of France (Cote d'Azure) plopped down in the Caribbean. Restaurants are great BUT pricey. I remember La Vie En Rose and Le Chanticlaire, but there may be other newer ones. Shopping ? Be careful because we decided to just window shop and look around. Hmmmm-$600 later. There are some neat things just waiting for you (and your wallet & credit cards). You can get there by taxi or as we did by boat pulling up on the waterfront. If you want an even greater French experience a day trip to St. Bart's is a must (but maybe save that for your next cruise stop) !
