We wandered into the Boca Marina looking for food to take back to the Villa we were staying at but decided to stay and dine there due to friendliness of the staff and the nice waterfront setting.
The food was good (Broiled Grouper Fillet & Mahi Mahi). Ordered a drink which was not known to them but they found how to make it and served it to us. Our kids loved the atmosphere and the attention. Went back a second time and had great food and service again. would definitely recommend eating there.

We had dinner on a Saturday evening and enjoyed it very much. When entering the location we almost doubted if we were at right space. Entering a shipyard hidden in the back is Boca Marina restaurant & Bar. Service by our waitress Sharisa was excellent, all waitresses were very helpful and friendly. A knife dropped on the floor and they replaced it one time; that is the way it supposed to be. As starter we had the Taste of Boca. All specialities of St. Maarten on one plate. My son just loved the crab cakes. We had a special treat of tasting their carrot cake, free of charge. Our main course: whole snapper and grouper with shrimp were both delicious. The group was a lightly too salty but nevertheless, we will recommend. Our dinner was topped of with deep friend oreo cookie and ice cream and they topped it off with a banana rum shot for free. The ambiance is casual with a touch of romance, you can walk outside on a small balcony and watch the many fishes that are in the water. Only reason why we did not rate 5 star is the parking space. This is to some extent limited. Overall definitely a restaurant to try.

we went there for lunch, I got the vegetable wrap which was made with frozen vegetables and was just dripping with grease and the plate had a puddle, my GF ordered a pizza, which they brought out wrong and looked at us like we had three heads, which was weird, we were the only ones in there at the time, the place is ON the water, great views, very clean, nice breeze, slow service(not the kitchen) I would like to try them again, maybe we caught them on a bad day

You are in a foreign country, a Caribbean island at that. Get a drink (or 2) and an appetizer and settle in. Meals are an event. Part of the fun is the adventure of getting to the restaurant, next to the airport, inside a real working marina, the entire building is over the water. Breezes and views are plentiful and as colorful as the lights. When the dock lights came on many different fish put on a show which occupied our kids. Choices of food and beverage were varied and plentiful. Service was outstanding. Prices were in-line if not better most other places we experienced. A must while on St. Maarten!

This place is nothing elaborate and entering through the shipyard makes it a little questionable. However, you will not be disappointed eating here. It is a hidden little gem that we happened to come across. It is quaint and right on the water so has great views through the large open windows. We went on a Wednesday and had the lobster (which is discounted on Wednesday). The biggest lobsters you have ever seen are in the tank when you enter the restaurant. We even saw them bring in a fresh one and put it straight in the tank. I'm talking 5+ lb lobsters cooked however you like! It was quite the treat and our party of four enjoyed our delicious lobsters and entire experience here! Our waitress Sharisa was great and our entire party was satisfied with our dinner out!
