The location is right on the lagoon with wonderful views. The food was excellent, the drinks potent, and the service was great. I had the Yellow fin Tuna and it was delicious.

Great place to eat. On the water, big place. We buy fresh seafood and take home to our villa to grill. Right on the main drag in Simpson Bay.

We were seated by the window with an enjoyable view. The seafood was delicious. We were very hungry and asked for a second basket of bread and butter before the dinner. The server was very friendly. In St. Maarten, the servers pool their tips and the tips are at 15%.

While we only had drinks and some appetizers, we found the service somewhat lacking. The waiter acted as if his cat just died. The appetizers seemed a little pricey. But the view was nice.

Good food, but really overpriced. Don't know why we come back every year (this was definitely our last time). This place caters to the American tourist with ambiance and food that could just as well be the Jersey shore, except the tab is at least 25% higher. The manager was quite gracius but the indifference of the waiter hardly helped... More

Food was outstanding and the view was gorgeous. We loved it so much we went back again. It is a bit on the pricey side but worth it. For non seafood eaters the menu is limited but the sun dried tomato stuffed chicken breast is absolutely delicious. My family all went seafood and highly recommend the blackened grouper. Service was... More

We went there twice on our recent trip to St. Maarten. We sat at a table right on the water with beautiful views of the sunset. We all had fish and we loved it. I went a 2nd time with just my husband and we went for the Rib Eye Steak! It was HUGE and awesome! A little pricey, but... More

Atmosphere is very nice and we had a table right next to the dock. The waitstaff was very attentive. Had delicious crab encrusted tilapia which was very good. Salad and a choice of fries, rice, or baked potato was a,so offered We felt a vegetable should have been served with our entree. Flavors were very good and fish was very... More
