We visited St Maarten for our honeymoon and heard about little Jerusalem through our friends Renee and Mike. The food was amazing! Inexpensive and large portions. We stayed in St Maarten for 1 week and ate here twice because it was so good, easy, and quick. The couple who makes the food are such sweet people. Would highly recommend this... More

Remember this is a food truck type of place, not a real restaurant. But shawarma was awesome. A lot of food within $8-12 limit. They serve beer too. We ate twice during our week in St Maarten.

My spouse and I ate at Little Jerusalem after a waitress from a neighboring restaurant made the recommendation to us. Food was delicious, flavorful and inexpensive. The owner was very friendly as well. We plan on eating here a few more times before we leave St Marteen and would definitely recommend this place to others!

This is one of our favorite spots for a tasty reasonably priced lunch in SXM especially when the drawbridge is up and traffic is backed up. The portions are huge and one order of shwarma can easily feed two people. It's also amazing what the owners were able to do with shipping containers.

The owners are a genuine pair and friendly to all of their customers, it felt as if we were a part of their family. This little spot undoubtedly has the best food on the island and the best shwarma I have ever had, it's made fresh and fast! This is the only meal our entire trip that I could not... More

This is a very small food truck like restaurant and they serve quality food that you wouldn't expect from such a place. You'll get a lot of food for $12. Two person can eat from one $12 plate. Was skeptical at first but after the first bite I was sold! Definitely a place to go when visiting St. Maarten.

We drove by this place dozens of times while on the island, and after checking reviews on Tripadvisor we decided to try it. All I can say is "amazing!!!" The owner/cook gave us a sample of the mixed shwarma while we were looking at the menu. It was incredible! My wife had the pocket bread version and I had the... More

On our last night at Simpson Bay, St. Maarten, we decided to eat at Little Jerusalem. I'd read many positive reviews about this place online, and having being to Jerusalem, Israel, I decided to visit the Little Jerusalem restaurant with my two cousins and their wives and kids. It is run by a nice elderly Arab couple and the restaurant... More
