The view of the bay, the first-rate service and the excellent tasting food made our last night on St. Maarten memorable. We stayed on the Dutch side and found this gem after another couple recommended it. We were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary, and everyone at Quai Ouest made it special for us!

This was our farewell meal after a week's charter out of the Moorings, and it was worth waiting for. The setting is delightful, overlooking Oyster Pond and the food is good. Our server was friendly and competent. The food was well prepared and was enjoyed by all in our party of six. Definitely worth a visit.

Cool little French bistro on the water. The food was good, but loved the pizza. The owner is the waiter and is super friendly.

I went to this restaurant a few days ago. The place is really nice and suggestive; in fact it is situated on a terrace overlooking the harbour. The staff is friendly and available. Unfortunately I can't say the same for the food. My husband ate a lobster and I had pizza. The lobster would not have been so bad if... More

We were staying nearby at Captain Oliver's resort hotel and could walk right over here. Once we discovered this little restaurant we ate there 3 evenings in a row. Would have eaten there a fourth day, but they close on Sundays and we were leaving Monday. I'd suggest making a reservation. One evening it was really filled, but we luckily... More

The food was decent. The atmosphere left a lot to be desired. We were there in their slow season, and felt like we were in their way the entire time we were there. We couldn't wait to finish our meals and leave. If they don't have time for patrons, they should just close for the month. Just plain rude. No... More

Quai Quest, located on the French side of Oyster Pond, is a quaint venue that sits right on the harbor. We took the owner's recommendations and had the Rabbit and Lamb dishes. Both were excellent and very large portions. In fact, we had enough of each dish along with the remaining bread that we made a tasty breakout of the... More

Having visited this restaurant many times we decided to spend our last evening in Oyster Pond at Quai Ouest. We expected the usual high service and quality food but were so disappointed. Steak and fries was exactly that with no time spent on the usual presentation with salad or vegetables. The vegetarian pizza was weird with mashed up carrot and... More

Eight people had 6 different dishes and quality varied tremendously. I liked my veal kidneys ,the mahi was torched, the pizzas were OK and the seafood special came bathed in mashed potatoes.
