Fresh food, great sea view

I love the fresh food, the service and the beautiful seaside view. Great place to grab lunch and enjoy the views.

The lobster bisque was phenomenal. The chicken mango wraps were good, but not off the chart. The view is fun.

Used to live in St. Maarten for two years and this was our favourite restaurant. Whenever we had friends visiting from Canada, we would bring them here and were never disappointed with the food or the service. Breakfast there is awesome!!

Chesterfield's was recommended by several people at our resort, so since we were shopping in Philipsburg we thought we would give it a try. The location was great, and we had a super table on the water. The menu had something for everyone, and the food was delicious. The only thing that could have been better was the service, which...

We wouldn't have found this restaurant on our own because it's headed away from Front Street in Philipsburg. It was recommended for breakfast by a local living in nearby Guana Bay because of the reasonable prices (lower, on average, than the restaurants found on Front St.). The clientele was a mix of locals & tourists. Ample parking and a waterfront... More

The restaurant lay right at the water's edge at a marina on Great Bay on the far side of town on the way to the Cruise Terminal. There is adequate parking up front. The exterior was unprepossessing but the atmosphere inside was warm and welcoming. A long L-shaped bar lay on one side of the dining area across from the... More

Food was decent and well priced but the service is the typical laid back attitude. My husband and I went here on our second night not quite realizing yet how slow the service is typically on the island. If they could improve the service, it could be so much better.

Love going to Chesterfields by the ocean as the food is always good and close to Philipsburg and easy to park there.

Too bad we found this place two days before we leave! The breakfast was very good and very reasonably priced. The portion sizes were just right. The staff was very friendly. The view was nice and the breeze was just enough to keep us cool. If you are in the area, this is a must for breakfast.
