Nice location average food

The place is located withq very nice view of the marina and just aside of the water. Very good decoration, funny and in accordance to the theme.

After doing the 12 metre sailing race we stopped in for lunch here. Service was great, food was good and it was quick! The place was clean and gave us a stamp on our parking ticket for $2 discount.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant for seafood. It's located near the cruise ships, right on the harbor. In the early evening, as the mobs were returning to their mega ships, we walked to the restaurant and were seated with the best views of the harbor. The waiter mentioned a special of red snapper. The fish was prepared to perfection, with... More

We went to dinner and enjoyed a delicious meal as well as very good service at Chesterfield's. The portions were large as I could not finish my meal. A very nice place to enjoy a meal at the waters edge.

We have been visitors to St. Martin for 3 weeks every year for 10 years. Chesterfields has a lovely view but…..when I wanted to use the Ladies room a MAN walked out. Apparently he didn't want to wait for the mens room to clear out. I had been shopping and wanted to wash my hands before eating…..only to find that... More

Where to Start! Parking is gated and free. The view is of the Great Bay and is spectacular and unimpeded, yachts and boats everywhere. The food was spectacular, fresh catch was great, coconut shrimp was large, fresh, and the best we have had, period. The atmosphere was sports bar for part, serene candlelit cozy dinner for part. Was a great... More

We were on the island for a day and remembered visiting this enjoyable restaurant years ago when we spent a few weeks on the island. We were greeted by a lovely hostess Andrea, with whom we struck up a conversation. She introduced us to the owner when she found out we wre back after many years. It turn out he... More

Always great food. Always perfect portions. Best filet mignon on the island. Fresh fish daily too. They have a great breakfast and lunches are the best. I adore the chicken and cheese wrap and if you are dieting they will always accommodate your requests.

I have a home in SXM and dine at Chesterfield's several times each year. This time we went with another couple. Three of us ordered the filet mignon which we all thought was excellent. I requested rare and and its always amply sized, tender and sumptuous. The forth in our party order the Coquilles St. Jacque and was quite pleased... More

We had Christmas Eve dinner here and some drinks on another day. It's a fine view of the bay, but the food is just typical waterfront pub food.
