Nice quiet restaurant

Nice little breakfast place (for us at least) which was quite and peaceful. Food was good but you might need some bug repellant as the little mosquitos would bite your legs if you hadn't put any repellant on.hadn't

Four of us enjoyed our breakfast here. We started with fresh squeezed orange juice, and then we each had a form of eggs: sunny side up, over easy and an omelet. The iced tea was tasty. We've eaten here before, and we'll return again. It is an open air restaurant, protected by an assortment of trees.

We used to go here at least a few times on vacation but I got tired of spraying bug spray all over me so I didn't get eaten alive. The food was good and the prices were fine. With the water feature inside and only a tree canopy, the mosquitos found a breeding ground and it's driven me away.

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
