“Good food, reasonable prices.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014

We had dinner here on our last night in Saint Maarten as it was very close to our resort and we had walked past it several times during the week. It was busy when we arrived but we enjoyed a drink at the bar while we waited and chatted with friendly bartender and pre-ordered our dinners. Our table came available after 30 minutes or so and we grabbed our drinks and sat down - dinner was served shortly thereafter. The food was very good, all 4 of us really enjoyed our choices and the price was very reasonable. All in all a very good spot to enjoy dinner outdoors on the patio.

“GREAT PEOPLE, GREAT SERVICE, GREAT FOOD”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

My visit to Alexanders kitchen was one of the highlights of our stay in St. Maarten. Warm and friendly staff. Great tasting authentic Caribbean food in a comfy upstairs patio with a view of the bay. We ate there every day. I couldn't get enough of the plantains. Can't wait to go back.

“The food and service was...Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014

The best vacation I ever had and the food was AMAZING I can't wait to stop in at Alexander's next year for some more good eating.The staff was AWESOME, always greeted us with a warm smile. We ate there pretty much everyday, we just couldn't get enough. Alexander's is located in Simpson Bay Resort on the 2nd floor of Bon Appetit. When visiting St Maarten-St Martin stop by Alexander's, you won't be disappointed...Great portion size and reasonable prices. Enjoy!

“Friendly, with Yummy Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2013

I wish we had more meals to spend at Alexander's, but instead we had but one breakfast to give... well, eat.

Alexander's is located in the 2nd floor of Bon Appetit, just a short walk from Simpson Bay Resort. As mentioned in my Bon Appetite review, good thing, since there's not really any public parking in that area.

Manage the slightly scary outdoor flight of stairs up to Alexander's and you are rewarded with friendly service, a seat at a table in their open yet covered dining area, and tasty warming food.

For breakfast, we shared the thick french toast $5.50, salt fish & johnny cakes $6, plantains $3 and homefries $3. The savory entree was the winner due to the flavors and the mix of crispy bread and soft flakey fish. The glass of milk $3 stood out too as it was different in a yummy way from my normal 2% from the States.

Our server was rather new to the restaurant, but she was so nice! When we inquired about directions to Karacter's, which she wasn't familiar with, she called her taxi cab driver husband to find out!

I wish we could have come back to try their dinner (entrees $8-12), but there just wasn't enough time to eat everything we wanted to on this trip.
