This Restaurant is behind The Royal Palm Beach and is situated overlooking the beach, but you can also see the Airport in the distance and you watch the planes take off and land. We ate here on three occasions and had a lovely meal on all of these. The Guava-berry ribs are delicious and all the sea food dishes plus steaks that are always cooked perfectly to you liking. After you have given your order you are given what is called a Johnny Cake, which is served hot with butter, they are yummy. you have to wait for your meal, but this I don't mind because it is all cooked fresh. Because the Restaurant is behind The Royal Palm is does sometimes get missed, but do try it you will not be disappointed.

This restaurant is located within the Diamond Resorts Complex of Royal Palm Beach Club and is mainly intended for use of the guests staying there, but you ang go there even if not resident

It does not have the largest menu you may have seen but the Chef(s) there do an excellent job and the food they do do is very good and reasonably priced (main meals or Snacks) So if you are staying in St Maarten I would advise that you give it a try

Located right at the Royal Palm Beach Resort, behind the pool bar and right beside the beach. The view was excellent! Only complaint: service was super slow. It was no one's fault but management's, because they had the waitresses doing both bar tending and serving tables. I know for sure they were overwhelmed! The conch chowder was superb, as was the lobster served on lobster night. Thumbs up to the chefs!

The only negative about the Royal Palm is the service at the bar. We waited patiently while the bartenders (2 of them) talked on their phones and to each other before taking our orders. (we were the only ones sitting at the bar) This happened so many times that we gave up going to the bar and just bought beer at the store. I don't know for sure, but I think I remember hearing that this bar/ grill was not owned by the Royal Palm/ Diamond.

We went out looking for somewhere casual with atmosphere to go and stumbled across this open-air gem off the back of the Royal Palm Beach Club (thought to ask parking attendant if the restaurant was open because there was a sign saying "steak night"). Whie we didn't end up ordering steak, the food was excellent - lovely fresh shrimp cocktail, best french onion soup (which is saying something for Sint Maarten since everywhere does excellent french onion soup) and then we shared a fish platter. Delightful with small beach right outside restaurant so eating to sounds of waves. Was just under $70 with drinks for both of us. We parked in the Royal Palm car park (free to diners) and walked around outside so didn't even need to go through lobby.
