We are finishing up our trip on SXM, by far this is our favorite place to eat! Oh man, the lobster and steak were out of this world delicious! The escargot was so tasty, the garlic and crusted baked cheese were perfect! My hubby is a big guy who loves his steak and lobster.. he even said it was the... More

The food, service and atmosphere are great! We eat here at least twice in a week. Highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for good food at a decent price. Look around, talk to locals and get a 10% discount for this restaurant. Not gonna lie, the bathrooms were not the best... have a couple of drinks and use... More

I wasn't in the mood for a large dinner so when I saw a grouper burger on the menu I wanted to try it and was happy I did. You can get a single or a double patty with cheese but the single was plenty for me and I barely finished the whole thing. It was really good and I... More

This restaurant continues to have have a great outdoor atmosphere, great food and great service. This is not a location anyone would want to miss when visiting the island.

We had a fun evening at Pineapple Pete's Our server was a character. When we asked him if he was Pete he said "No, repeat!" He sang to us about the menu. The food was good. Everyone enjoyed their meal.

Had dinner at Pineapple Pete last night. The salmon lasagna is very good. The waitstaff are exceptional. I don't know what the owner Pierre does to train them, but he is doing something right. Pierre is totally hands on--here and at his other excellent restaurant, Sushitto. Dinner at Pineapple Pete is a must every time we visit St. Maarten.

My boyfriend and I were looking for a fun bar where we could play some pool and we ended up in Pineapple Pete. Great location! We stayed for dinner and both ordered the double cheeseburger for a very reasonable price. Delicious! We really enjoyed the live music there. The staff is extremely friendly!

I had the Philly Cheese Steak Wrap. It was okay. The wrap comes wrapped in paper. It was quite soggy, but had good flavor. My wife had the linguine in Alfredo sauce. This was, by far, the best Alfredo sauce we have ever tasted. It was rich, smooth, delicate, and full of flavor. We will return to Pineapple Pete's for... More
