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.

We had an early dinner at QO and had the best pizza. QO is on the hillside overlooking the harbor at Oyster Pond. It is very casual, but quite nice. We selected the Pepperoni, but exchanged mushrooms for olives. The crust is very thin; just the way we like it. They also have a spicy oil in a bottle that... More

I am sad we did not eat all of our meals here when we stayed at Captain Olivers Resort because it was by far the best pizza on the island for 8 days, but it was a great location in walking distance to our hotel. VERY GOOD FOOD AND SERVICE!

Lovely situation looking out across the marina at Oyster Pond. Friendly and efficient staff providing an excellent service. Delicious French meal. Very popular so could be worth making reservation. Overall good value.

We stayed at Oyster Bay, and had our first meal here, just walked over. We shared the mahi tartare entree as a 3 person appetizer, I had chicken in coconut milk and pineapple with black mushrooms (very thin, wavy, sort of like kelp texture). Jacques had a Creole fish stew, Joe had local pork ribs with mashed potatoes. He and... More

Down in the corner of the marina dock is the cutest little place. The food has clean flavors and everything our party ordered was great. No complaints. A very enjoyable, laid back dining experience

Ok, so I love this place... The chef/ owner drinks his wine, chats with the patrons, laughs and has a blast with his customers. I ordered a steak and when he looked at our table, he notice I am a man of some size (6'1" 275lbs) he decided to whip up a man size steak (freaking amazing), my girl had... More

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!
