The atmosphere and view of the beach at Busby's is wonderful. The drinks are well made there. I've had both breakfast and lunch at Busby's and also just late afternoon drinks there. Very happy with all my experiences there. The service is very good. I also spent a couple of days on the beach there. Nice quiet beach compared to... More

The manager Daniel is a jerk but the staff is amazing (Joan), food is excellent but very expensive. Try the pizza, bright beer is $1 HH, snails are our favorite and drunk Charlie is a riot!

Upon our arrival into st Martin my wife and I were in search for some decent food on our trip to the condo. We came across Mr Busby's and decided to stop. We were both very hungry and tired and I really did not care what I ate. At first we were told that dinner was not yet being served... More

We went in the evening as the restaurant turned into Daniel's By the Sea. All four of our dinners were lovely.....the home made fettucini was fabulous....and, we could get half orders so that we could sample more choices. I added grilled shrimp to my fettucini alfredo. The shrimp were fresh, delicious, and had just a small taste of curry. My... More

Can't beat breakfast at Mr. Busby's. Very reasonable; plus nothing beats a seat overlooking the ocean for breakfast. Service is prompt and food well done.

This open aire restaurant sits right on Dawn Beach between the Westin and Oyster Bay Resort. It is Mr. Busby's for breakfast and lunch and Daniel's for dinner. We went one night for dinner and was greeted by Daniel himself. We had a table on the deck closest to the beach to enjoy the sunset and a little more quiet... More

I'm not sure where the $$$$ rating came from but we find their prices more in the $$ range - cash only. Me.Busby's is a staple in our annual SXM trip. They make a wonderful breakfast and a great lunch if you just want something not at a hotel buffet (or price). In the mood for pizza? It's not crazy... More

We travel to SXM at least twice a year. Mr. Busby's is always a must attend venue for lunch. Owner Daniel and his staff are wonderful. Joanne is our regular waitress and she is very attentive and welcoming. We always get the grilled fish baguette with fried and onion rings as well as cold Heineken. They have a wide variety... More

We stayed nearby and although we wanted to visit many of the other island's great restaurants we ended up back here 3 times in a week, the food and location are outstanding. Highly recommend the soups, French onion and lobster bisque. All entrees we had were outstanding. I will be back again!
