Had a wonderful meal at Canoa. Food was top quality, service outstanding and singer in lounge was amazing. This was our second experience with Canoa, and we will definitely visit again.

This was our second time dining at Canoa. My husband and I ate there last year and loved it so we couldn't wait to return. We started with the plantain canoa and we both loved it. The mahi al greco was delicious. My husband had the stuffed red snapper and it was very tasty as well. Restaurant can get very... More

This is our second night eating here during our one week stay in St Martin. This place is new to us as it wasn't here last time we were here in 2006. The food is outstanding and the service at par. The Manager is on top of things and will do his best to accommodate your needs. We have had... More

My wife and I enjoyed a quiet dinner here during our vacation. The bayside seating was pretty, a bit of an odor which bothered some but to us passed as we got used to it. The food was acceptable, my stuffed snapper was a 3/5 and my wife's burger was easily a 4/5 but did not constitute being in the... More

We ate at Canoa mid-week. They are closed on Monday nights. The service was terrible. The waiter did not refill drinks, stop to ask how our dinner was, nor clean the table after the main course which most finer restaurants do. The food was actually quite good...which was the highlight of our evening. Do know that compared to the other... More

All we heard when we got to the island was we needed to eat at Canota, so we attempted on Tuesday, but they are closed on Tuesday's, which is no big deal. We went back Wednesday evening. We were seated outside, the hostess referred to it as the "stinky" side. She was correct. It took forever for our waiter to... More

We went for appetizers & drink. The ceviche & plantain appetizers were fantastic. We sat in the small deck area overlooking the water. Not much of a breeze back there but overall a great meal.
