Nice place with a great view over the beach. It is on the second floor so don't miss it when you walk by. Great food and service, Raymond the owner is a wealth of island information. Make sure you eat the bread rolls when they are hot, so good.

Went there for dinner while in St Maarten. Forget it. The fish my wife and I had were the tail cuts from the fillet, the lowest grade available. The veggies were just warm and had little taste. Prices were much to high for for the quality. Much better choices all around. The only benifet was it was on the upper... More

We read an article in one of the local guide magazines, so we decided to give it a try. We tried to order their special, but they said they ran out of some of the ingredients so it wasn't available. I asked about the Creole sauce on the fish, since we had a fish with Creole sauce the night before... More

quiet probably because of difficult parking and off the beaten path. We had a great dinner although prices are a little higher than we like. Nice open air view of Pelican Bay.

The place was empty when we went on a thursday night around 7:30, which was a little worrisome, however our food was pretty good. I got the baked stuffed local lobster, which was overpriced, but very tasty. The conch fritters were pretty good. The view of the Pelican Marina was nice at night. But for the price and the taste,...

We were a party of 6 and decided to try out the Bel Mar since it was nearby our hotel. First of all; parking is difficult. Second - decor is nothing to write home about. Service was decent and pleasant but the food was awful!!!! Did I say awful???? I mean probably one of the worse meals we've ever eaten... More

I give this restaurant 5 stars. Its hard to find a place to start... This restaurant is very clean and well kept, the ambiance is cozy, the service is excellent and the staff is friendly. Most importantly, the food and wine are top notch. I tried several different dishes and they were all delicious. The conch fritters are tasty, the... More
