The view is second to none! The wind in your hair and the crashing of the waves makes this place a must see. The wait staff was VERY friendly and the food was good. No complaints here!!

We stayed at Mary's Boon (the restaurant's hotel) on Simpson Bay for one night. Our first night were hungry for a late night bite while having drinks at the bar. Although the menu indicated they were open much later, we were told they were closing early and only had limited number of appetizers available. OK, we understood, however by the... More

We spent one night at Mary's Boon before heading over to Oyster Pond. All staff at Mary's Boon are warm, welcoming and helpful. We were enjoying a pre-dinner cocktail when a staff member told us the special of the evening was Mahi, my favorite fish. So we went into the dining room and were seated at a beautiful table overlooking... More

We were not satisfied with a recent visit to Mary's Boon beach bar. Although the beach is glorious and there were chairs available for us to sit on, my husband and I waited more than twenty minutes for a drink. Finally, he went to the bar and bought us 2 rum punches. The bartender seemed to be unsure of the... More

I normally dont write reviews but this was a pretty cool little bar restaurant tucked away. We were beach walking and noticed the chairs and decided to sit and have a drink. They were very nice and let us sit there and didnt charge us anything. We had a great view and just lounged around. Later we went ahead and... More

Stopped for lunch, for a different view of Simpson Bay. We both had the grilled fish sandwich with fries, very filling and at a decent price. Will have to go back.

I live on St Maarten and frequent a beach restaurant/bar called The Tides. I have had wonderful days and evenings at the restaurant , enjoying the superb white sand beach while enjoying excellent meals prepared by a European chef. The food, staff and ambiance are just fabulous and I would describe it as a family oriented bistro in the sand.... More
