We had been here before but this time it was even better. The owner explained the menu in great detail. The food and the service was the best we had the entire week we were in St Martin. All eight of us enjoyed our meals. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We had dinner here as it came highly recommended by a few locals. We were excited to try this place as we heard the seafood was ultra fresh. Ultimately we were disappointed overall. The food was just ok and while the owner who seated us was great upfront we were never checked in on much to see how dinner was... More

So when you go to an island with your French Canadian/Jamaican family, you never expect to eat at a French inspired Jamaican restaurant. But that's exactly what we did. We had Oxtail and jerk chicken, which were both superb. All 5 of us agreed that the stuffed crab Appy was also a highlight of our meal. The food was sooo... More

Went with a couple we met on the beach. Had a bottle of wine. Very good appetizers had bread fruit with vegetables and a stuffed crab shell, both were delicious. I had trigger fish with vegetables and the others had what they called a shellfish. The shellfish was served inside the shell of the fish. Very good and interesting! Will... More

This place has promise. My major gripe is that all of the meat dishes are very fatty. Things were cooked well, with flavor, but every meal I have had here is way too fatty and chewy. I opted for a fish dish one time, and while it was tasty, it was a bone fiasco which definitely detracted form the meal.... More

This is what we do. We are a Caribbean restaurant that gives a great service and heart full meal. I have been a fisher-man for over 14years and started this restaurant with my wife while fishing now I just have the fish deliver fresh. We have a small terrace seat up to 16-18 persons and interior more spacious, If your searching a real CARIBBEAN restaurant we are the one. Our menu is design to take you to Jamaica, Haiti, or even Guadeloupe and back to Saint Martin. We cook with soul in the kitchen every meal we take our time to make sure its well done for you. It can take time but nothing good come easy. Grantee the best.
