Great food

Shared several meals there with friends while were were vacationing for a dive trip. They have multiple options available and a broad price range. Pizza is offered and is large enough to share. Their dinner options are delicious and the service was good.

We went for dinner and were very impressed. I had my Caribbean favorite, a whole fried (sometime I get it grilled) Snapper. Don't be afraid to order a red wine, a lot of places in the Caribbean are keeping it slightly chilled as to survive in the heat.

I had a delicious burger and fries here on a late lunch, just as the restaurant was closing, but, congenially, they stayed open so we could eat, and didn't rush us out at all. The restaurant is well located for divers or anyone staying in town.

Friendly staff and good food. We ate there twice and enjoyed both meals. I had fish it was very good. Marion had chicken curry and enjoyed it too. We would go back. Like many places in Statia you can't pay by card only cash.

We ended up here by chance, and did not regret our choice, in fact we came back a second time. The pizzas (with a very thin crust) were absolutely delicious, as was the Blue Bead Hamburger made the "real" way with meat cooked to perfection. There were also French specialities on the menu, that looked good albeit expensive. The desserts... More

We went to Blue Bead restaurant several times, because there was not much other choice around.. But luckily it is a nice place with good food! Especially the pizza's are really good! If you want to have lunch there, you must know that when we were there the place closed at 14:00. After this time there is not a lot... More

We went there twice. Food is best on the island. The own, an ex-US pat is friendly and went way out of his way. The Bue Bead does not take CCs so you need cash. On out last visit, on our last night on Statia, we were out of cash. We told the own we'd love to eat there but... More

Nice starter with muscles to die for. Ordered a rare steak that came well done so I blame that on the waitress since the cook assured me that 'well done' was the message. Waitress was not very welcoming and there was a lady cook slouched in a chair by the entrance of the restaurant whose appearance did not add to... More

The Old Gin House is a wonderful, small hotel wiith an outside restaurant and bar by the water. Rooms are nice and some have a great view of the water. Biggest advantage is they are next to the best dive shop in the Islands, Scubaqua!

We were there with a group of collegues. The service was friendly and very patient with us. We all had different meals but on one thing we all agreed on, the food was excellent! The location itself is fine, it's close to the beach and it's easy to find a parking spot closeby.
