A Lovely Lunch, Except....

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... read more

We stayed at the hotel for a week and to be honest we arrived with some mixed feelings because of the opposite reviews. The property is located on a very secluded part of the island but still has a lot of restaurants and bars within walking distance. It gives the impression to really be in the Caribbean unlike the big... 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.

Although a bit difficult to find, it was worth it to have a quiet lunch. Parking attendants were great, helping everyone fit into tiny spaces on the property. Food was excellent. View was great fun. Fish swimming below the deck and observable through glass floor also were entertaining. Place gets great reviews and deserves it.

After a day on the ferry to St. Barths from St. Martin we decided to catch dinner immediately after departing the ferry. Very quiet and unassuming. Dishes were tasty (Chicken and White Fish) and portion size was plentiful. Cost seemed to be quite fair. Upside down apple pie was delicious.

Captain Oliver's is a great setting on Oyster Pond. Service was slow and food was fairly good but over priced. Recommended more for lunch then dinner. Enjoy the fish sandwich and salad. Not a place for small children.
