I was with group visiting Saba in February. We had dinners scheduled at several restaurants on the Windward side of the island. All but Shearwater were awesome. Food and service were excellent. The last night we went to Shearwater for dinner. The service was terrible and the staff was not above board in their bar service. Someone in our group... More

Excellent preparation and service with a breathtaking mountainside view of the ocean and the sunset. Prime rib was mouthwatering. Will be back on our next trip.

Had the opportunity to dine at Bistro del Mare for two dinners and breakfast for several mornings as a guest at the hotel. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed a dinner one evening of steak and grouper with a wonderful side dish of fresh mushroom risotto. We also enjoyed Thai night with very good portions of curry chicken and shrimp... More

This was the only restaurant we ate at twice for dinner and they were our best meals in Windwardside. If you’re walking to the restaurant from elsewhere in Windwardside the incline near the hotel/restaurant was by far the steepest we encountered on the island, but it’s short enough it’s manageable and amusing. The hotel has a great view and we... More

We just spent a week at Shearwater and ate several meals at Bistro del Mare during that time. The food was always very good and the view from the deck is the best on Saba. They easily have the best beer selection on the island with 150 or so beers from around the world, the wine selection is extensive, and... More

Bistro del Mare has it all- exceptional food, quality service, and breathtaking views. Go early enough to enjoy the sunset and have a drink from their well stocked bar! The menu offers everything from fresh Saban lobster, to duck breast, to braised beef short ribs, and Chef Tanner cooks everything to perfection! Let's not forget their Antipasti to start and...

Tanner is a great chef and his food is outstanding. Taras is good at recommending the dishes thar Tanner cooks. We stayed at Shearwater for eight nights and ate here for four of them. The Monday Thai nights were our favourite. Compliments to the chef and waiter.

We visited Bistro del Mare twice during our recent visit to Saba. Between the jaw dropping vistas, the inspired menu, the oh so delicious meals (just writing this has me salivating like Pavlov’s dog) and the extensive wine/spirit selection it’s a dining experience you will long remember. The food is further enhanced by the warm, friendly service. Make sure to... More
