Very friendly people and great food. Its very difficult to find organic, non - proccessed and fresh food on this island. I am not vegan or vegetarian but i enjoyed the food very much. Buckweed grains and vegetable plus red cabbage and spicy arugula. Oh lemonade is delish. Super refreshing.

I found this place truly by accident one day before departing for our cruise and read reviews about this restaurant before we left the U.S. As soon as we docked in Philipsburg last week I found someone to drive us to this amazing little restaurant.

Perfect for a vegetarian like me. Fresh ingredients right out of the garden. And very friendly staff. Thumbs up. See you soon again.

My wife and I stopped by here after a recommendation from some locals. She is a vegetarian and there aren't many options on the island. The Freedom Fighters Ital Shack is amazing. We stopped by for a late lunch (4:30) and we're treated to an awesome feast of veggies, cracked wheat and greens, along with Sorrel Tea. Amazing food, and... More

We ferreted out Freedom Fighters based on the Anthony Bourdain review. Hiding in plain sight, it's a little gem on the Dutch side of the island. Immaculately clean and decorated with posters extolling Rasta culture, reggae, and local agriculture collectives, this restaurant's menu changes daily, depending on what's available in the owner's garden. My husband and I feasted on gigantic... More

Came here off the recommendation of the Dinghy Dock owner. He didn't steer us wrong. I don't eat vegetarian normally, but this was good.

At the Ital Shack you get fresh homegrown food. This is the best for the food is still electrical, that will then nourish your body as was intended by our creator.

I love Freedom Fighters. We were in the mood for something healthy, local, and tasty, and chose to come here due to the many recommendations that praise it. The Ital Shack is simple. He has his menu for the day, and that's what you get... but its amazing. He grows as much of the food as he can, and also... More
