Nice Spot on the Water

Swing by here for a decent, fresh meal on the water! The price was reasonable, it was more the ambiance than the food that made the meal.

The greeting was not welcoming and the waiter was not a happy one. The restaurant was not at all busy and probably at 20 % (if that) occupancy. The apetizers arrived quite promptly but we waited nearly 90 minutes for the main course. We arrived at approximately 8pm and the main course arrived at 9.25. Even though we politely asked... More

We celebrated our 35th anniversary with dinner at Captain Oliver's. They treated us like celebrities on our special day. Always wonderful food. Homemade pasta.

It's just "okay". Nothing to rave about. There are many other places to eat that are much more impressive.

I had some time to kill while in Oyster Pond and waiting on a report from a yacht broker. His office was adjacent to Captain Oliver's, so I went to enjoy a little local lunch at this lovely establishment. The prices were a bit above fair and the food was over salted (which leans to the French side of the... More

Been to a lot of restaurants in St. Martin. but this food is by far one of the food and service. I had the white fish with rice and beans. YUMMY ... Beautiful location.

situated along the habor of oysterpond with a view on the lights of the boats and the houses on the surrounding hills, this location is marvelous. It is not very cheap, but you can sit down in a quality surrounding (no noisy people or load music).

Loved being able to dance with my Hubby during dinner. The food tasted great & our service was excellent. Restrooms were clean. Was a bit pricey but well worth it.

I had eaten here before for lunches and dinners - always reliably good - , but apparently not on a Saturday. I was pleasantly surprised a couple Saturdays ago when we showed up and found a very delicious buffet spread! Situated on the water, the atmosphere here is lovely and romantic. Combine that with the excellent food and you've come... More

Nice place if you looking for atmosphere, but the food was ordinary. Nothing was amazing just kind of blah and for the price there are much better options.
