Tucked on the beach next to the Oyster Bay Resort and near the Westin Dawn Beach, this typical open air beach restaurant was wonderful enough to grab us for several romantic beach dinners. It is Italian/Caribe/Seafood themed. The food was fresh, nicely presented, tasted wonderful and there were healthy servings of all that we ordered. The Red Snapper in creole... More

On our last night in St. Maarten we ate at this very good restaurant. It had been recommended to us by another vacationer and did not disappoint. We were seated close to the sea with enough breeze to knock over my almost empty glass of wine. After leaving a very cold Maine winter to be here we found we liked... More

We love italian food so on our honeymoon at the Westin a guy at the pool suggested we eat here. It was so good we went back a second time. The fried calamari appetizer is the best we've ever had and we order it at every restaurant we go to. The pasta with gorgonzola cream sauce is amazing!! Ask to... More

Parking here is not easy, but well worth finding. I had delicious shrimp linguine. My son rated these the best ribs he had all vacation. I sampled the green beans on my husband's plate and they were so good that I wanted to go back so I could have my own. The food is reasonably priced as well.

Tonight we go to bed hungry. As ex pats how live on the island of St. Martin, we've read for years on Jeff Burger website about how great the food was at Daniel's by the Sea restaurant in Oyster Pond. There is something wrong here. As my wife and I tried to dine on oily saturated spicy calamari, half order... More

We were staying at the Dawn Beach Club and didn't want to go far or be out late, so we slipped over the hill to Daniel's. An Italian restaurant, on the beach, in Dutch Sint Maarten? I ordered the Shrimp Parmesan with linguini with one of the most mouth watering creamy, light tomato sauces I've ever had. I almost put... More

Our group (four adults, two children) dined here for dinner. The food isn't "fabulous", but if you're looking for a casual night out while in St. Martin, seated near the water, then this is the spot for you. They had a varied menu and wine list (although the red wine that one couple requested wasn't available that particular night) and... More

It's right on Dawn beach, outdoor seating in plastic chairs at umbrella tables - super casual but cute with lighting, good food at good... More

Ahhh...wonderful meals again! We generally eat here every other night because we love everything about this restaurant! All the meals are excellent, with the red snapper on the top of my list. Daniel is there expediting the dinner out of the kitchen in a timely manner. Great service, the staff is outstanding and always so good to us! Had the... More
