Meet the owner several years ago while working on an establishment on the beach. From our first visit we were treated like royalty. So when our group of 12 headed to St Martin on a cruise, we knew we had to stop to try their restaurant. We had a wonderful dinner. They served the food family style, which was great... More

The best meal is from my own kitchen. Joss is next door and I discussed with him if what he cooks at the restaurant is what he serves at home, He emphatically said no! With that in mind, I would not mind if he made his Cesar salad with chicken at home. It was excellent. I have been to restaurants... More

They were so much fun, and they treated us like long time friends. I had a delicious creole chicken dish, my husband had the muscles, and our friend had the creole mahi mahi.... More

I've spent 4 nights at J and J and every meal was fabulous. The owners are gracious and have never met a stranger. If you want to eat the best food on the island and feel like you are family, stop in. You won't be disappointed.

This place was recommended to us by a local. It is a very basic non-thrill restaurant / bar with a lot of customer reviews written on the walls. While we totally agree that the owners are very welcoming, friendly and eager to please we did not find the food to be "the best food on the island" as many reviews... More

Joss and John were wonderful Hosts. The dinners we ordered were very well seasoned and tasty. I had the stewed conch which was a bit tough but very tasty. My significant other had the creole mahi mahi which was perfect. We did not get a chance to go to J&J Good Times a second time but will certainly return on... More

We had the mussels which were succulent and they give you more... More

Family with two young children, staying in house off orient bay. Although a bit off the beaten path and in a rustic-local setting, the overall experience here was excellent. The staff, who I think were also the owners, spared no effort for us. The food was well prepared with fresh ingredients. the children's meals were brought promptly. The prices were... More
