The Gingerbread Cafe is on the grounds of the Belair Beach Hotel. The staff is wonderful, and the food is very good. They also provide live entertainment at their BBQ and on Friday evenings. The singer this week was excellent. Prices are reasonable for the area, but don't go if you want fast food. They cook each order as it... More

The menu was rather limited. The food and the service were "okay", the setting and the charm A+. We stayed at Divi and enjoyed being able to walk to the restaurant as driving in St Maarten can become very nerve wracking.

Arrived at the Belair Beach resort starving, the Gingerbread cafe is attached and right next to the pool and beach. This is more of a bar than a restaurant, happy hour buy one get one free drinks start at 5pm. Luckily, we arrived at 4:45, we ordered our food and drinks at 5, the cheeseburgers were great. They have guavaberry... More

We rented a unit at the hotel. In the past, the restaurant associated with every time share we have visited has had excellent restaurants. This one is the exception. The night we arrived was Father's Day. We went to the restaurant to enjoy a nice dinner to celebrate my husband, our children's father. We were given a table in the... More

On our first night we had delicious Mahi-Mahi. The second night we had surf and turf..... steak was very good but the lobster was left in the broiler for too long and was rubbery and tasteless. The last straw was breakfast...... we were one of three occupied tables and waited 45 minutes for an omelet and pancakes. After 30 minutes... More

For the last few trips we stopped visiting other restaurants and just eat here. It is convenient and the food is terrific. Rufus and his staff - Brenda & Dwayne make you feel right at home. Check out the Monday night all you can eat BBQ by the pool. Entertainment is provided,

Rufus and staff have always made you feel welcome. You are part of the family. A diverse selection for breakfast, lunch, or dinner all meals are made to order, prepared to your liking, and served timely and efficiently. The staff is always smiling and laughing and you can dine in your bathing suit, cover up, shorts, or dressed up.
