Best mussels in St. Maarten.

When on the Island my wife and I have to eat at Marks. By far the best bang for your money with quality food. This trip I tried the special which was mussels. When presented it arrived in a large pot, and had mussles piled high, over 40 of them!!. So, I started stripping these tender delights and... read more

Ordered the Linguine De Mer!! For $14.00 you get a HUGE plate of linguine filled with shrimp, bay scallops, crab!! My husband ordered the special - mussels with sauce for $19.95 - he ate for 45 minutes straight without stopping, and brought the rest home to cook for tonight's dinner! Broth covered the mussels - white wine with an onion... More

I visited this restaurants a couple of weeks ago and it was average. The food was good for the price but nothing special. I had the ribs and they were decent. I would go here so you've seen it. Only the location is a downside, it's on a parking lot...

Hidden treasure. Great food and very welcoming atmosphere. Both my husband and I had the red snapper. Excellent! Next visit I had rack of lamb, tender and tasty. Side orders are also good, we cleaned our plates. Lots of locals ordering take out. We definitely we go back.

If you want to experience island food and mingle with the locals, Marks Place is the spot. Always my first nights dinner after arriving on the island. The food is fantastic and reasonably priced. Why 4 stars instead of 5? On several visits they have run out of plantains and without them my Caribbean dinner is just not complete and... More

Marks Place has been around for years and although not a great location, you can shop for groceries and then have dinner without moving your car. We started going to Marks when it was on the French side in the mid 80's and have always found the food to be very good and not expensive.

The food was good but Marks Place takes Island time to another level. It took half an hour to order and over a hour and half to get our food. I had mussels which I didn't enjoy because I was annoyed at the very long wait. I only ate half which was okay since I took the rest home and... More

We discovered Mark's Place in the Grand Marche shopping plaza on our trip to St.Maarten this year. Reasonably priced for ribs that just fall off the bone. A full rack of ribs with choice of potatoe (choose the delicious scalloped potatoes) served with salad and cooked vegetables. We could not eat it all at one time and took some home... More
