After a 3 year gap, still wonderful seafood (i.e. lobsters, crab cakes, fish) and a desert from Venezuela you must try. Service great and if you are a repeat visitor remind them for your VIP (10% discount). Parking still an issue but worth the hassle. It has a pool hall. And the most disgusting restrooms of any restaurant we visited... More

You will never eat better lobster in St. Maarten than at Pineapple Pete. All of the food is fabulous and the service is equally great. The owner, Pierre, makes sure that you are happy and is very friendly. I would highly recommend this restaurant and it happens to be my favourite in St. Maarten.

After visiting this restaurant since it was opened it has become a frequent stop while on vacation in SXM. The Alfredo is wonderful as is the Lobster Thermidor. The staff is wonderful always attentive to your table even when the restaurant is packed. The owner is still extremely active in his restaurant and can be seen almost nightly at Pete's.... More

We stopped and had lunch here on our way back from touring the island. Service was quick and efficient. There were a few other tables eating lunch as well. I ordered a grilled chicken wrap and my husband ordered the coconut shrimp. The wrap was pretty good. However, the coconut shrimp were not the freshest or tastiest that we had... More

I enjoyed the food and the fact that it was right next to were I had to go for the rhino was awesome. I eat and then got ready to take my ride on the rhino. The food was great and the waiters even cracked jokes with us while we waited. I would advise you to give it a chance... More

Outstanding food, great drinks - best Jerk Chicken and Shrimp in St. Maarten! Fun - Excellent service! Don't leave St. Maarten without going to Pete's!! Must try Pablo's Pasta; hot, spicy jerk chicken and shrimp with alfredo pasta - can't miss dish!

Our waiter made our experience less than average. He seemed as if he was put off by having to do his job, never smiled once, didn't carry a conversation with us, didn't check with us. We ordered a drink and he didn't deliver it (wasn't on the bill). The food was good but we definitely would not recommend this place... More
