I literally only had about 18 hours in Saint Martin because I was mostly in Saba but I went out of my way to have lunch here, with my backpack on the bus,....and I was so glad I did. I had the pleasure (and fortune) of chatting with Bushman himself. He immediately welcomed me and gave me a hearty plate... More

Had lunch there. Great relaxed atmosphere. Very, very tasty food. We are seeking out vegetarian places and this is the one to go on SXM, but I think it's also a good place to introduce your friends to vegan food.

Not only is the food delicious, some of the ingredients are picked from their garden daily. the atmosphere is warm and inviting..just like the owners Bushman and Raisa! like me you don't have to be vegetarian to enjoy Ital.

The Ital Shack is an experience by itself. If you are a vegetarian or not it is a great place to have some nice and tasty ital food with some ingredients freshly cut from Bushman`s garden.

This place can be a little difficult to find, but it is well worth the effort. The food was fantastic, and the owners were very welcoming. If you are a picky eater, avoid this place...there is no menu and only one option every day. If you love the experience that comes along with food, do not miss this place. I... More

It took some asking, but we found this vegetarian and political hot-spot near the only traffic-light intersection on the island. Turn up hill on Bush Rd. and you’ll find it on the left with the unmistakable colors of the Jamaican flag. There’s no menu, but a list of homemade juices and a “dish-of-the-day” served by the chef herself. We had... More
