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

I ordered the lobster thermador (they are known for this) and steak combo. Not cheap about $50. There were 9 of us so we expected to wait a little. People around us that came after us were getting their meals before us. Finally after almost an hour after ordering, our food came. Two orders came messed up and my dinner... More

After watching the ads on American tv and hearing that it had good reviews, we decided to eat there one night whilst on holiday. The ad on the tv made it look really good. We were greeted nicely and found a table easily, the guys who served us were really nice and very pleasant. The food was good and the... More

Just had to stop at Pineapple Pete's because my wife and I were traveling with our friends PETE and Heather! Lobster Thermidor was delicious! Jonesey (sp?) at the bar in the pool room was fantastic! I had mentioned in a conversation that we were celebrating our 25th and our friends 24th anniversaries and low and behold, the owner Pete himself... More

On a weds night this place was packed.why we don't know. On basis of some of the other reviews we came for dinner at 8pm. There was a table for two open - we quickly ordered drinks (piña colada excellent, rum punch so so) then dinner (the chicken rib combo). Portions were hefty, but ribs were cold, chicken was ok...
