Inside the restaurant is open and has nice decor. Service was great. Good selection of dinner choices. Food well prepared and portions nice. Value good for St. Maarten.

We went to Pineapple Pete's last week during our trip to St Maarten. This was our third annual trip to St Maarten and we have always struggled to find restaurants with a lively atmosphere. We were happy to find that Pineapple Pete's was busy, even during down-season! They had live music, which we love, and the food was excellent. I... More

The service and food is to die for. Everything was GREAT. Very friendly staff and the Dark Rum Creme Brûlée was out of this world

The conch fritters were the best I've had in the Caribbean. The lobster thermidor was very good and the stuffed crab grouper was to die for!!! However, the mixed drink I ordered taste as if no alcohol was added and the server seemed as if she was bothered by serving us. They charge a 15% gratuity on your bill. Would... More

The food is good too. We really wanted a whole steamed fish, but the taxi driver tricked us and brought us here. But we still enjoyed the food.

Saw recommendations for this place so we went (in fairness, the place we really wanted to go was closed for the month.) Figured it'd be ok. The service was really slow, the food was ok at best--shrimp was a little overcooked. Mixed drink had so much mint muddled in it that all I got through the straw was mint. Pasta... More

Awesome food, great atmosphere, good location! Although the french waiter kept insulting how us Canadians don't know good food, the owner, Pete (who's canadian! haha) was awesome. When he learned we were on our honeymoon, he treated us to some wine! :)

When I asked the car rental guy to pick one restaurant that we shouldn't miss while here and he answered without hesitation "Pineapple Pete Restaurant & Bar. Day 2 on the island and we strolled in and was given our table. Our waiter was superb with his knowledge of the island and their menu. We both ordered from his recommendation... More

We had dinner here on our last night and wish we'd listened to all the people that told us to go there through out our visit. The service is by far the best I've seen in such a large layout, the servers were always very attentive regardless of whether it was there table or not. We had the Mahi Mahi... More
