The atmosphere was great, the service was very friendly. As a vegan I had no problems to find something to eat or adjust non vegan dishes and make them vegan

This was our first place for dinner while on St. Maarten. We had the lobster risotto special and a crepe. The owner was super energetic and gave us great recommendations. We liked the atmosphere, and we got alot of breeze, which helped keep the mosquitos away. Definitely a must visit

We enjoy the salads at this restaurant but we're disappointed in the pizza. The crust was burnt both times that we ate there.

We were greeted quickly with an amazing description of the dinner specials that one could not turn down. My husband & I ate here twice for dinner. The seafood was uniquely prepared with many different flavors that were out of this world. They take a lot of pride in their food that is surely recognized with each bite. Highly recommend,... More

We chose this restaurant mainly due to the urging of the delightful French owner, who walks around with her menu board and painstaking describes the daily specials in delicious detail. Everything sounds better with a French accent. I chose the Pepper Steak and I can honestly say it was THE BEST STEAK I have every had. My companion ordered a... More

Group of 6, timely service and patience while we tried to make up our minds from the awesome menu. The menu is varied fish meats salads. Great presentation and flavor. The escargo in parsley butter, very delicate and delicious. The dinner salads were great and with the meal , I had no room for desert (should have saved room).

My wife and I have been to St Maarten many times but not in several years. We were dismayed by the slow tourism on this trip. We went to restaurants where only 5% of the tables were full. We decided to go to the Orient Village area on Thursday night and there was life !!!!!! After checking out the menus... More

At the recommendation of someone, we went and try. Could not be more disappointed and so were the tables next to us. The owner insisted on taking the order of all the tables trying to push the most expensive items on the daily board while her waitresses were running around but still forgot to serve the wine. We had appetizer... More
