“Wonderful dining experience”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

We knew it was going to be a great night when the owner of the restaurant (Greg) found us a parking spot right up close (behind his car). We have been to St Maarten many times but had never eaten here. From now on this will be a regular dining spot. Our waitress/hostess (Jo) was very friendly and helpful discussing the menu. Our friends had the Mahi-Mahi and Curried Vegetables which they said was delicious. My wife and I had the Drunken Ribs Special. The ribs were fantastic. Moist and meaty and the crust was crispy like bacon. The order was a full slab so we had to take some home for lunch the next day. I do not usually comment about side dishes but I must say that the French Fries were the best I have ever had in a restaurant. Think of the original McDonalds fries but better.
All in all it was a very pleasant dining experience and we would highly recommend giving it a try.

“Awesome place”

Food was amazing. Took the whole family and had a great time. Lost some cash under the table and went back 2 days later and owner returned it. Nice family run business. Can't wait to go back next time!
