THANK YOU Ital for the best meal I had all week. I found you using my happy cow app, you were the only vegan shop on the island. If it wasn't for the $30 cab ride I would have eaten all my meals at your restaurant . Beautiful people, beautiful food. Thank you a million times for your nutritious food.

Let me start by saying my husband and I are meat eaters! However we heard a lot about this place and decided it was worth a shot. We were greeted by the owner and he immediately explained the menu options to us (with a huge smile on his face), offered us one of his homemade juices and took the time... More

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.

Wow!!! What a gem of a place in the heart of Philipsburg, St. Maarten!!!! 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. We... More

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
