We ate breakfast here 2x during our stay since it was close to our hotel. Thursday, service was great but the food was just ok. Johnny cake was a little dry. Saturday we at here again and the service was terrible but the food was better. This was a hit or miss spot but we loved the ocean view

The staff was incredibly nice and helpful. They open early for a good hearty breakfast and stay open late for all kinds of good seafood and pizzas.

Staff is very friendly. It's right on the beach and you can go back and forth if you'd like. I went there for snack/happy hour and it was a perfect place to wind down. Looking at the gorgeous Dawn Beach, sipping great mixed drink, biting on a slice of pizza....It felt so St. Maarten,lol.

Loved sitting & overlooking the ocean at night but the service was HORRIBLE & the food wasn't much better. Perhaps its better as a breakfast or lunch place. It took forever to place our order- took way too long for the food & didn't even attempt dessert because we were so turned off by that point.

The settling is great, the food is a little pricy for what you get. I'd stick to fish or steak verses the pastas.

This place is a great beach bar with $1 beer happy hour that is not to be missed. Breakfast here was a wonderful alternative to expensive hotel brunches. Only concern is that the bathroomis less than useable.

Our family has a tradition, our first night in St Maarten we eat at Busbys..they have never treated us wrong. Since we stay at oyster bay beach resort, it's very convenient for us to walk over. The ONLY complaint I have no reservations so you can't show up at 7 and expect a table by Dawn beach. The atmosphere, food... More

We weren't going to eat here, but the serious traffic problem today had us getting back from the beach too late/tired to go far from our villa rental in dawn beach. So very glad we ate here as it was our best meal of our 11days on the island! From our drinks/apps/entrees everything was delicious! The only sub par was... More

My wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary last night at Daniel's and it was amazing! I had shrimp and scallops with cream sauce. My wife had the 10 oz filet. I would put it all just above Ruth's Chris in the USA! We had their homemade tiramisu for dessert and I realized that I have finally had REAL tiramisu!... More
