“Very good food”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

We were there on a busy night so the service was a bit slow but the waitress would let us know she would be there in a moment or the owner would bring us something. We have been wanting to try this restaurant for a while but never got to. This time didn't disappoint us. For an appetizer we had the mussels in a garlic cream sauce and they were so good. For the entrée my husband had fish and chips which was mahi mahi cubed and breaded. It was really yummy. I had the pan seared tuna with cole slaw and rice and it was really good.

“bad tasteless greasy food”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

We decided to try this restaurant since it had a 2 for 1 appetizer deal even though there appeared to be very few diners on a Friday night (this should have tipped us off). We ordered coconut shrimp and calamari as an appetizer. They were ok but dripping in grease. Then came the entrees. My daughter had ordered seasoned fries as a side. The waitress came back and said they were out of seasoned fries but they have regular fries (HUGE TIP OFF - everything frozen no chef at all!!! - we should have left then and there.) My snapper was ok, but my salad (which should have been on my daughter's plate - they switched her salad for my slaw) tasted like mold! The baked potato and bread were good. My daughter ordered the conch fritters, which had a very bitter taste. We were not sure if it was lemon or if the fish was off so she didn't eat much of that. The fritters were dripping in grease and besides the bitter taste had no flavor. When we were asked how everything was, I did mention these things in a very nice way. No offer of refund or anything was made. The waitresses, however, were very kind and the table we were seated at was on the water which was nice. Food was incredibly bad!!! Think "kitchen nightmare."

“Food was good, service TERRIBLE!”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

We should have realized that if there is no one dining you should choose another resturant. We looked at the menu and the prices were reasonable so we thought we'd give it a try . Our waitress was a bit dim. The service was terrible. It took over an hour to receive our food which was pretty good. The loaded potatoes were interesting. I have never had a baked potato with half a cheese slice laid inside along with shredded carrots. Slaw was excellent. I had the snapper and it was good. Husband had lightly breaded and fried grouper and he liked it. Our friends had the ribs and they were satisfied. The owner asked if everything was ok and we said no so she removed the service charge. Way to go throwing all the blame on the waitress! We left her a modest tip anyway. Don't waste your time at this resturant. The places on either side are much better.

“There are lots of better choices”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

We decided to give this a try after reviewing the menu out front and noting the reasonable prices. As it turned out, the food was really quite good, but just couldn't make up for the S-L-O-W and indifferent service. We had the ribs and enjoyed them, but would never go back. There are simply too many better restaurants in St. Maarten. Save yourself the aggravation and try one of the others.

“Terrible overpriced sub-quality food”
Reviewed 22 December 2013 via mobile

We happened upon this place and decided to give it a try. The man at the door (who we assumed was the owner) was veryfriendly and told us he had the best price for lobster on the strip (not that we were interested in lobster). The atmosphere was decent, a little run down but acceptable. We sat by the water in a small table in the back. We had fish and chips and the mahi mahi. The fish and chips looked like something you'd defrost from a grocery store and was tastless. The tuna was similar - awful - we had one bite and left the rest. When the server came to clear the table her only question was whether we had had tuna before. When we told her that we are familiar with tuna (mahi mahi- which we eat often) she grunted and left the table. She did not offer any apologies or make any move to remedy the situation. Rather she just brought us the bill.

Well, given that it is a dive i guess we shouldn't have expected much more than we received. However, future customers might want to make sure that their expectations are sufficiently low if they decide to try this restaurant.

There are so many other great restaurants on this island - dont waste time or money on this dump.
