This is just an ok restaurant with poor / slow service but the beer is cheap! $12 for a bucket of 5 beer. It is located directly on the beach not far from the water taxi that brings you back to the cruise ships. There is typically live entertainment directly across the street. It is a great spot to people... More

I'm not sure what the marketing setup is with the reggae singer across the boardwalk from this place, but they've nailed it. The patio was packed with people watching this entertainer. Food was okay-Caesar salad average, chips came with very minimal salsa, but the pear & Parmesan salad was phenomenal! Sounds like our server went out of her way to... More

Nothing special for an afternoon snack. We ordered a light eat and the food was distinctly average. Service was polite and friendly. The atmosphere was light and vibrant with a mixture of day trippers and beach combers.

After sunning and swimming in the water at Beach in St Maarten, my wife and I were ready for a good lunch. I asked Kendall our beach attendant where to eat he told us he will only recommend the Blue Bxxxx bar. A/K/A Taloula Mangos. Beer, ribs and chicken wings were great. will be back

Brian was awesome! He offered genuine advice on what to do, and the Guavaberry colada was refreshing. -Bev & Cindy

The food was mediocre at best, over priced for the quality, and the service was indifferent. Additionally they tack on a "service charge/fee", which the wait staff could not really explain. It was not in place of a tip, which was still expected. Take a short walk down to the Greenhouse instead, which has better food and service.

Norman W, Owner at Blue Bittch Bar, responded to this review

Sorry to see you were not satisfied with us. The service charge concept was introduced to the island by a large hotel in the 70s named Mullet Bay, owned and developed by the Ford Motor Company. Soon it became common practice on the island. We've been getting good reviews both about our food, prices and staff so I don't know... More

Right on the boardwalk. If there are lots of ships in port a great place to people watch. The spinach salad with mango was awesome. I added a grilled chicken breast.

We were lucky enough to stumble upon this cute little place for dinner. We were both in the mood for Caribbean food and ordered the jerk chicken over rice. We were not disappointed. Both the rice and chicken were flavorful and the waitstaff were pleasant. The pina colada was also divine. We will definitely go back!
