This is a small Resturant but they do a great job preparing the fish and have very good service. It is right on the Oyster Pond.

We had a party of 7 & ate here on our first night in St Maarten. Our servers were very accommodating & the food was great. The plantain appetizer is a must have. We were sad we didn't get more. The Lobster Fish cakes were good also. The stuffed red snapper & seafood pasta were to die for and a... More

Our first night in st. Martin we chose this restaurant to eat at since it was near our hotel. Thought it was very expensive, did not like my food, and got very little for the price.

We had the blackened mahi and the grouper in lobster cream sauce. Both were delicious. Very good, reasonably priced fine dining. Service was great, too.

Canoa was unfortunately the last place we had dinner on our trip to St. Maarten. The service was excellent. We asked for a nicer table and they moved us no questions asked. Our server was polite and attentive the whole meal. We had wine, salad , entrée and dessert all delicious and well prepared. I would return again next time... More

Wonderful food - of course it always is! Love the being able to sit by the water. Service is outstanding! We have been on the island celebrating a very special birthday - what a way to spend it. Love the exotic salad with the eggplant croutons, seafood pasta is scrumptious. We will be back!
