A great fish-oriented lunch

Great service, good drinks and really well prepared seafood dishes. A great lunch stop in SXM. If you like super yachts, you're in luck. If you get a window seat you can pretty well reach out and touch them.

This is always one of our favorite stops in St. Martin. We came in for dinner on Ash Wednesday, last month, and as usual, we weren't disappointed. I had the blackend grouper that is my absolute favorite thing on their menu. One of these years though, I'm going to get the absolute monster lobster. It always looks so good, but... More

Got really drunk on those during the 2 for one happy our. Delicious. I can't seem to find the passion fruit juice they use here in the states. Shame cause those went down real smooth! Crab cakes were the best I had on the island. But $14, tho the same price on long island, is a lot for a crab... More

The food was so good and the views even better. Service was outstanding! We had Calamari that melted in your mouth. Oysters on a half shell that were so juicy and flavorful, the fish special and seafood potpie as entrees. We finished with chocolate cheesecake for 2. I savored every minute of this meal!

Came here for dinner while on vacation and we weren't disappointed but I wouldn't say the restaurant is anything special. We had the red snapper and it was good. Most people were ordering the rock lobster and it also looked very good. The service was pretty slow but the rum punch was very strong and they brought us bread to... More

I could make a meal of the stuffed crab appetizers. For a seafood place the ribs are my choice. But my wife loves the grilled lobster.

I order crabcakes whenever I see them on a menu - these were so disappointing, pretty much tasteless! The swordfish special was very dry, chewy with a gas (as in grill) aftertaste. On the positive, view was outstanding and our server, Bido, was very friendly and professional.

We heard so much about this place that we had to try it. The fish is so fresh you want to slap it LOL Food was served hot and the wait staff was just great

Didn't have reservations, but were able to eat at the bar & enjoyed a nice meal & view. Also picked up fish at their market portion a few days later & was good & decent priced. Would recommend.

Service is great. Food is pretty solid as far as seafood goes. It is a bit pricey, but overall worth it. Get the coupon out of "nights" magazine for a free glass of wine.
