We happened to stumble upon this restaurant after a day of boating. The reviews were stellar so we decided to go ahead and make a reservation. While our expectations were high- (due to the reviews) they completely shattered them. I am still full from such a fun and enthusiastic staff and absolutely amazing food. My children (5 and 8) loved... More

Discovered this gem quite by accident! It was close to where we were staying. Food is excellent! We liked it so much we went back a second time! Had 5 different entrees and all were great! Staff and service is warm and friendly. If you're in St Maarten, this one is worth a drive from anywhere on the island!

We were staying in Oyster Pond and decided to have dinner near our hotel. Canoa had popped up when searching for restaurants in the area. It was also recommended by hotel staff, so we opted to give it a go! I am very happy we did, it was a great night! We were seated outdoors alongside the harbor. It was... More

This was probably my favorite meal during the whole week on the island. Nice combination of Greek-inspired traditions mixed with Caribbean flavors. Waitstaff was top-notch. It's busy, even off season and on a Thursday night so make reservations. Little more expensive but worth it!

We were staying at Oyster Pond and dropped in to eat. It was very busy and we didn't have a reservation but were quickly seated at a table by the door. We had the stuffed plaintain and mahi mahi that was so good. Service was excellent . We will definitely return
