“Random choice, but just right”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Not knowing exactly what and where to eat we decided to try one of the restaurants along the board walk. It was around 16.00 hrs. As we walked around we still did not know what to have for lunch. We passed the Taloula restaurant, but decided to turn back and placed our order their. "The food must be good since there were some guests around the tables, my spouse argued".
So we choose our spot, high (bar) chairs and high table are unusual for eating, but surprisingly felt comfortable. We had to walk toward one of the staff to place our order, since nobody noticed us when we sat at the table.
We ordered 'baby' spare ribs (jumbo was sold out) and pasta with seafood, totaling about U$ 35. Waiting time was okay, about 20-25 minutes. The food was very very good, to be honest, above expectations. Excellent! And the beer was served ice cold too, the right temperature! Couldn't be better. Value for money.
Definitely recommendable to every one visiting St. Maarten. Staff is friendly too. Keep it up Taloula!

“Taloula Mango's Restaurant”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Located along the boardwalk and one of the few open restaurants open around 5:30pm, we ate a dinner of chicken and ribs. Food was good but more expensive than a better meal we enjoyed at Chesterfields for less money. Outdoor dining complete with a beach view.

“Don't let the name put you off - good food, great location, reasonable, friendly”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

We were not cruiseship passengers, but almost everyone else around us was. We had really great food here on our day trip to Phillipsburg. I can imagine it might be a zoo on a busy cruiseship day, but we got a table with an umbrella outside and enjoyed their quesadillas and fruity cocktails. There was beachside entertainment as well which was amusing, and slightly participatory with bar patrons (not us). We enjoyed the atmosphere and the location on the beach. It was reasonable as well, which was a nice break from our expensive meals elsewhere on the island. Staff were friendly too.

“nice place for a coctail by the beach”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

The food was okay, the drinks were pretty good. Our day here while on a cruise was a rainy one, so this place was actually great, within walking distance from the cruise port, and right on the beach.

“Fun!”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

A great place for a cold drink or lunch or dinner when visiting Phillipsburg! We go every year! The staff is friendly, food and drinks are great, and a super place to just watch the activities along the beach area and boardwalk!
