We used to see Jean and Joss at a different venue, when we arrived in St Martin we went to see them but were told they started their own restaurant so we had to visit. Jean was warm and welcoming as he always has been. Beer was cold and they even gave us an ice bucket to keep the beers chilled down. We shared some comped Sex on the Bar shots, yummy. Then we had some fabulous BBQ. We are from the south and know a thing or two about BBQ. Well the ribs and chicken were smoked and delicious and came with salad and fries. I had a creole sauce and hubby had BBQ sauce when he wasn't trying to take mine. HUGE plate of food for only $10 and a 1:1 exchange for cash. Two dollar beers. Then we shared another round of shots and a wonderful chocolate crepe. Cannot wait to explore the rest of their menu.

TIP - those of you who miss Jean and Joss from LaString --- they are right inn Quartier d'Orleans. Go visit.

We found this restaurant on our last day (sadly) but the food was amazing!!! I would come back to St. Maarten just for this place. The atmosphere was relaxing, the waiters were fun and friendly. It had great energy, and awesome local food. The restaurant also has a mix of creole, Croatian, and Italian food! DELICIOUS!! Don't waste your time anywhere else (especially NOT Daniels) this is my first review ever, and I just had to make one for this restaurant. I would rate it a million if I could!!!

This is a great, new restaurant that just opened right before our September visit to St. Martin. The food is excellent and Jean and Joss are great hosts! What a fun time we had. These guys are just getting started, so stop by and enjoy a great meal or have some drinks at the bar. They even have a private room if you want to reserve for a party. You won't regret going here.

Johnnie and Josh are the best. The food is excellent and very reasonable. They just open the doors in August of 2013. We had dinner there 4 time in the two weeks we were on the Island. Looking forward to going back next year

The place doesn't look like a whole lot but the inside is nice enough with a small bar and covered outdoor seating. The food was excellent. The menu is "European creole" with a wide range of proteins and sauces which can be mixed and matched to taste. Joss did a great job of explaining the menu and advising on combos that aren't shown explicitly. He was very funny and had us all cracking up the whole time. Then Jean showed up and poured some post dinner celebratory champagne and shots (comped). All of this along with some good company made for one of my most memorable birthdays ever. Great guys, great times.
