It was not only the food (with all ingredients home grown), the drinks he makes (daily fresh juice, like... More

Amazing and delicious. Excellent service, healthy, hearty and filling food. I couldn't recommend any restaurant more. We went multiple times during a one week stay.

Excellent Veggie food and juices served up daily with a smile. What a Blessing in St Maarten. Only a brief cab or bus ride from downtown.

While visiting St. Maarten on a cruise, 2 members of our group are vegetarians, so the remaining 6 of us decided to join them at Freedom Fighters. The son was the server and customer service person, Mom cooked and Dad was certainly the PR person, Bush Man is his name and rightly so, his dread locks go down to the... More

If you were to go on a vacation and wanted to make sure you didn't obtain any bad eating habits, the only thing better then cooking your own food is Freedom Fighters Ital Shack. If nothing else, get every juice they are serving. They were all amazing and I bought extras to take back with me. The food was also... More

We were literally welcomed with open arms by Ras Bushman when we arrived! The service was excellent from the beginning of our visit, the food arrived fast and the meal was amazing. With all of the dining options in Sint Maarten, the Ital Shack is truly a one-of-a-kind experience and not to be missed.

This is such a cool place. Makes you feel like you're at someone's home in Jamaica. The service is the best we've had on the island. My wife and I go there for the great vegetarian food and ultra cool atmosphere.
