We dined here because we were struggling to find places on the island to actually get some Caribbean food - everything is burgers and fries these days - but sadly we didn't find any here either. The closest thing on the menu was the bbq combo so I tried that, but it was so greasy that it was almost inedible.... More

Alexanders is our "go to" place for delicious local food. We dined here several times on a recent trip to the island. We were delighted to see Yvonne again and Jonathan is a great addition to the staff. The menu has some excellent new specials, especially the rack of lamb. Our favorites were there as well, the stewed oxtails and... More

Dinner at Alexanders Kitchen is a the best on the island for local food. Fresh red snapper cooked in a coconut sauce that had taste and flavors out of this world. Chef Jonathan made my fish dish after I asked for local food since the menu had foods I get in California every day. The spices and flavors were singing... More

Alexander's has been in business forever. This used to be an employees cafe more then 15 years ago. The food is fantastic, plentiful and service is outstanding. The only bad thing is there are so many stairs to climb to get to it. Alexander's is housed above Bon Appetite.

We have eaten here many times over the years, the food is always excellent and prepared freshly for you. Therefore it's not fast food, if you want that go to McDonalds etc. Cheerful staff, good food at reasonable prices. Try their spaghetti with Italian sausage, its wonderful!

We've eaten at Alexander's twice. We enjoyed the food and the atmosphere both times. If you're looking for "fine" dining, you probably won't like Alexanders. It's old fashioned, "island casual". The kitchen looks like your mothers. The food though, is fresh and tasty just like Mom's. You'll find some South American influenced dishes, too. Stick with the seafood dishes as... More

This is for the location within the Simpson Bay Resort. The food is nothing extraordinary, what l got looked like something cooked by a 10 year old. The table was sticky and wobbly, the waitress seemed disengaged, not very friendly. the glassware WAS NOT clean; it seemed to me that they just dunk the glasses in soapy water, rinse and... More

We lucked out finding this little restaurant upstairs above another restaurant in Simpson Bay, St. Maarten. This is a local place run by locals! The food is delicious and the prices are outstanding. Very reasonable..
