Solid meal, plus cool sampling of local made rum...

Food was solid, nothing fancy but also nothing over-the-top expensive either. Great service (even redirected fans as it got a little cool for our taste), and a fun sampling of the locally made Topper's Rhum.

Second time visiting this place. Came because we got a coupon for a free bottle of wine. Waited 20 minutes for a waiter to come over to us and the place was not full. After we ordered our wine another 15 minutes. We asked for a bucket to keep it cold - another 15 minutes. Food was okay. Nothing special.

Perhaps I was most pleased with the lunch menu... Breakfast could have been better, needed a steak knife to cut the pancakes.

Toppers had karaoke the night we were there and it was a slick touch that all of the staff can sing. Some of them had great voices too, and they all possessed a fun demeanor. The food was an entirely different matter. We were eating in the bar section, and had calamari. It was a small portion of pan-seared calamari... More

Stopped in for lunch today on our way home. Brisket sandwich was good; I got it with gouda. Carpaccio was OK, but didn't have anything other than the beef and shaved parm; no capers, etc. Wings were good. Bartender was friendly, but never asked if I wanted another drink. OK spot for a bite to eat. Pricey for the US,... More

Quickly became our favorite place to walk to from Simpson Bay Resort (formerly Pelican). Great ocean view, great breakfasts, including a Bloody Mary bar a couple days a week. Had breakfast, lunch AND dinner there.

We always make sure we eat at Toppers every year we come to St. Maarten. This was the 6th year for me it was great as always. The food is great and so is the service. I highly recommend the brisket sandwich.

This place gets top rating for food quality, portions, service and value. It is an unpretentious palapa located right off the main road. The food is good and plentiful (I ordered a pasta dish to go and ate from it for three days). The drinks are great. You will eat and drink and still have money in your wallet. Will... More

We went for lunch and the food and service were very good. I had the meatball sandwich which was excellent. I would recommend it.
