I always grab a frozen coffee here when I'm on the island and take it with me as I shop. Delicious coffee and friendly people.

This little hideaway is great. While not very large, the patio is shady and pleasant to while away some time with a cool drink or meal. The menu has some interesting twists on standard fare that are delicious. Only complaint, service is extremely slow, even for St. Maarten!

I have been to this restaurant numerous times and always get the same thing, the grilled chicken penne. It sounds very plain, but it is anything but. The penne comes with a tomato cream sauce that is to die for. My wife ordered a burger (she usually does not eat burgers) and loved it. She got it with goat cheese... More

We had a great lunch here while on a cruise. It was recommended by the salesperson in Diamonds International. It has a nice open air court in the back that is away from the street. They had a varied menu of both food and drink. The margaritas were delicious as was the crab salad. My wife had the crab salad... More

My family and I stumbled upon Kangaroo Court during a day long trip on the island. We only had a few hours in port and were headed towards the beach but we got thirsty on the way. ;) Mimi (the owner) was so kind and welcoming. The frozen drinks were amazing and the food was the best meal we had... More

This restaurant has begun fraudulently adding a tax to your bill. Some restaurants on this island will add a service charge, usually 15%, to your bill. Always check your bill for this to avoid over tipping as this is a common practice. St.Maarten/St.Martin is a Duty Free/Tax Free island and any business adding tax to your bill is being unethical...

The burger was superb, the place has a coziness with it when you go sit at the back. We all liked our burgers. We went there to have lunch and stayed full for the rest of the day.

This has been my go to lunch spot for years and I can never get enough of it as it provides great ambiance with comfort food. Plus the staff is friendly and the owners are welcoming. You can opt to sit by the bar, watch your favorite sport or catch up on the News but my preference though is the... More

We found this cute little restaurant across from the market stalls and beside the courthouse quite my chance. Enjoyed a lovely lunch. The meals we ordered were large and filling. The owner served and took great care of us. Really nice and cool in the dining area on such a hot day.
