There was only one server and he did a wonderful job even with a large party that arrived after us. I had the sting ray after the server recommended it and it was amazing.Quay Ouest as a wonderful little restaurant.

We had 2 excellent dinners here and it was by far the best value compared to our other meals on St Martin for the quality of food you get. Meal selections were delicious, fresh and creative. Nice outdoor atmosphere on the marina. Don't let the dark, somewhat dingy walkway from the docks dissuade you from checking this place out!

We stay in Les Balconies, and walk down to the restaurant almost every night, the owners are so friendly, and we love the food. We have been coming here for 6 years. From the fresh fish to the homemade pizza we never had a bad meal.

The local grocer recommended this place to us as her favorite place to eat in the area. It was wonderful. It's kind of tucked away from everything else in the marina, so it can easily be missed. Don't miss it! The food was over the top wonderful and the service was very helpful and pleasant. My French is horrible and... More

We spend many nites at this restaurant because it was wonderful food and great experience. It was walking distance from Le Balcon and the Dingy Dock was our spot for cocktails. We will be back next year.

Our 1st night in St Maarten and we wanted to eat at the marina so we decided on Quai Quest. We were very disappointed. Our dinner special of fish topped with crab served on a bed of rice had not been thoroughly heated and was rather tasteless. The red wine was served way too cold to be enjoyed. They were... More

Thanks to recommendations on Tripadvisor we headed over. Staying nearby at Westin. Outdoor covered dining at marina waterfront. Full crowd, nearly all repeat, local customers who all knew each other. Nice. Enjoyed the fish stew, and the mahi tartar. Desert, homemade chocolate mousse, fabulous. Glass of Chardonnay was very good, chilled well, however glass of Cabernet was also chilled, not...

This place has a soothing view of Oyster Pond, very nice servers, and memorable pizza. It was one of the highlights of our stay on St. Martin.
