The food here is very good, although like all of Statia, expensive. The wait staff, and particularly the owner, are very friendly and helpful.

Blue Bead has outstanding food and excellent service especially considering its location on a remote Caribbean island! Our group had take out sandwiches a couple of times for lunch (between scuba dives) and went there for dinner twice within a week. I would highly recommend it during your stay in Statia.

I also love high quality thin crust pizza and they have some of the best I have ever eaten…..almost like a cracker crust…goes great with... More

The restaurant serves good food, but is pricey. Still it's the only restaurant in Lower Town i'd recommend to go to (The Old Gin House hast only 4 or 5 plates to choose and is even more pricey), i escpecially recommend the dialy plates, they include main plate, a drink and a dessert for a good price.

This pizza is the best I've had other than Italy! Very thin, crispy crust and some unique toppings in addition to regular fare. The Blue Bead also has a very nice selection of menu items other than pizza, such as shrimp and scallop risotto. Our group ate here 3-4 times, it was definitely a favorite.

Wife and I had the opportunity to dine her twice for dinner. First off, let's preface the dining options in Statia as being limited and understand where you are. The restaurant is open air and is located in lower town waterfront, Gallows Bay, down the pot-holed muddy road within easy walking distance from the Old Gin House and Golden Era... More
