Amazing food, I had freshly caught red snapper, and my wife had some of the best ribs of her life. She let me have one, and seriously, breathtaking, the sauce is something I can't wait to have again. The staff are incredible; very friendly; great music. AND, they are hockey fans!!!

My wife is a baby back ribs fanatic. When we looked at the menu we noticed they use St. Louis cut ribs. My wife was hesitant to stay, but it was our last evening on Saint Marten and it was getting late. We still had to pack. So, we stayed. Those ribs were FANTASTIC! They seemed a little pricey at...

The Palms is our favorite restaurant on the island. We always make several visits here during our stay. The staff is simply amazing, very attentive and friendly. We have enjoyed everything that we have ever ordered. Flavorful foods from the famous Drunken Ribs, the curries, the burger (when available), to the Pao, Accra and Veggie spring roll appetizers, and the... More

Second year we have stopped here. Pao is incredible and we have remembered it fondly since our first visit ! The staff is friendly and makes you feel at home. Definitely a place to visit on your foodie adventure.

From the road. It's hard to tell that this place is going to be amazing. It is! It's filled with mostly locals. On this particular day, we came back from a half day fishing trip and had fresh Mahi. I asked if they could prepare it ... and they said yes and prepared a fantastic meal. We also ordered the... More

The owner and staff were very friendly and accommodating. We traveled with a group of 20 and they were able to take care of us with amazing food and excellent service. Every meal we ordered was fantastic, especially the drunken ribs!! We look forward to going back the next time we are in SXM. Thank you again Greg!

The service, food and people were all exceptional. We really enjoyed this after our sub-par experience the night before at Lee's Roadhouse.

First of all i want to give a big shoutout to the nice couple who are the owners of this restaurant. I have never seen this kind of dedication and hard work. The food was absolute fantastic. I had the chicken wrap and my wife had the tilapia, both were really nice. We didn't eat the drunken ribs because we... More
