Meal was OK

5 of us ate here while on vacation. The food was lack luster. We talked about leaving but the waiter was so nice we did not want to leave him hanging. The food was not bad but not great either. We will not return.

Everyone else averages $19.95/pound, and Boca Marina is $17.95/pound, so I don't get why they think they can get $29/pound.

Steaks were excellent. Ordered the steak platter for 2. Got to taste the top sirloin, the rib eye and the filet. All 3 were full of steak flavor and cooked to perfection. Price was fair and service was very good. The building is very interesting on the inside. Nice décor. Our table was right on the bay windows and there... More

We went with a big group of, to put it mildly, fussy eaters. Accommodation is Caribbean, lush and stunning. Service was quick, efficient, accommodating and very friendly. Started with signature cocktails: passion fruit limey with crushed pepper my personal favourite. The rest had different sorts of Mojitos & Martinis. We ordered Deluxe Sample Platters (beautiful presentation) with coconut shrimp, chorizo... More

The interior of this wharf-side restaurant is really interesting, with soaring open-beam wood ceilings and huge sculptural hanging lights. The layout is very open, with interesting seating areas and many banquettes which provides a very relaxed, hip vibe. We were there for lunch and started off with one of the best mojitos I've ever had, followed by a small goat... More

In st. Maarten you eat fish and if you don't eat fish you will love this silly little joint. After a long day of boozing it up get in the rental car jump some speed bumps and try not to hit the anchor like I did. Have the steak ribs combo, it's real good. I am not joking eat it... More

Great restaurant and great food. I had the filet and loved it. Cooked to perfection. Remember to bring your wallet but it's great.
