Good lunch

This is a small, quiet restaurant with a nice view. We were only on Saba for the day--we had taken the ferry over from St. Maarten. For $3 per person, we had booked a taxi tour of Saba, a short morning hike, and lunch. We got our choice of several lunch entrees, a side dish, and a beverage. We... read more

Great place to eat after doing some hiking in the rainforest. The food was good and the view was amazing. Would definitely return.

Great place to grab lunch with food food. The restaurant has awesome views and relaxing atmosphere. It even has a pool, hot tub and lounge chairs you can use on the edge of a huge cliff over looking the ocean. Definitely a must place to eat if you are visiting the island. Decently priced and portioned food.

Tropics is in the Julianna. I was there for a quick lunch. The house drink included a bit of Saba Spice. Not something that you would like to over-imbibe on, but good for a relaxing post diving lunch. The mahi-mahi sandwich that followed was also very good.

Ate here with 2 others as part of our Saba tour package. Food was better than I had expected. We all had a half sandwich with a side. I had potato soup and they had a grilled romaine salad. We were all pleased. The service was attentive and the place was cozy and comfortable.

I had the pleasure of eating at Tropics twice on a recent overnight vacation to Saba. My husband and I cancelled a dinner reservation at Restaurant Eden, after looking at Tropics' dinner menu and deciding that Tropics was the better bet. We enjoyed a pre-dinner cocktail first, took in the beautiful poolside view and recapped our day. For dinner, I... More

'Tropics' -- at Juliana's Hotel is one of the top Windwardside restaurants on Saba to eat and relax at. We take friends and clients there often. Excellent food and service for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Delicious coffee first thing in the morning, right in the heart of the tropics -- palm trees, lush green plantings, blue skies and Caribbean ocean.... More

While the food was ultimately quite good, I wouldn't recommend coming here if you are looking for good service. On the night we went (which may have been an off night or something?) there was one server taking care of all 10 tables. And it didn't go very well. I can assure you that others were just as frustrated as... More

We’re so happy to hear that you liked the food, we have two great cooks and more and more people are saying how happy they are with our menu and the food quality. It’s naturally upsetting to us that you observed questionable service because we take such care and pride in serving our guests. We always welcome your observations and... More
