Almost perfect

We had such a great dinner and lunch that we decided to have a 2nd dinner during our 6 day stay on St. Maarteen. The first two experiences were BEYOND perfect.

Although most food we had was very average this was terrible - burger king would have been better and a fraction of the price.

Stopped in for a quick informal dinner. Really nice place right on the beach. We just had cheeseburgers but they were good. The waitress was very nice.

Their two for one daily drink specials, especially the rum drinks... More

I ordered lobster as it was "lobster night". The worst lobster I have ever had: it was tough and dry, even with the butter sauce. My wife ordered a mojito at... More

We ate at this site and the Pburg one on several occasions. Ok, so the 2 for 1 drinks was an initial draw but the variety and consistency of the food brought us back. Prices were reasonable also and the staff at this site was very good and friendly each time.
