“Saturday evening fondue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

We stop here Saturday evening and tried their cheese fondue. We ordered a bottle of red wine & shared that, looking out the window at a wonderful view of St. Martin at night, all lit up. The view from the open dining room is absolutely beautiful from here during the daytime, which is why we had gone there last night. We have had a nice breakfast there in the past& loved the view from there. Friday, Saturday & Sunday evenings they have a wonderful cheese fondue besides a beef fondue & one other type too. The cheese had a wonderful flavor into which we dipped pieces or toasted bread & we had a salad with this also. For dessert we had a crepe called Bounty which was chocolate, coconut & ice cream with whipped cream on it. Can you say.....mmmmmmmmmm ( rubbing my tummy). It was a very nice evening & the young lady that waited on us very very good. She helped explain some of the menu to us.

What a wonderful find! Delicious food. We enjoyed fruit crepes as good as the ones we enjoyed in France many years ago. Lucy is the owner. She greets everyone like family. What a wonderful place to done with gorgeous views of the sea, orient beach & the surround islands. Enjoy!

“A Living Saint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

When you visit the French side of the island, stop at Paradise View, a restaurant with a killer view overlooking Orient Bay and St. Barth's to the east. The restaurant is nice, but the real jewel is a little stand called Rums and Spices right outside the restaurant. Bernadine Ali sells bottles of local rums (excellent!), spices and island sauces. She also rescues homeless dogs and cats. Buy a shot of rum for a buck. She uses the buck to feed and care for her homeless friends while she works tirelessly to get them adopted. Then buy something from her. Contribute whatever you can to her cause. The woman is a St. Martin version of Mother Theresa for animals.

Visit Bernadine and help her help the helpless. It will be a highlight of your visit to St. Martin gauranteed!

“Best breakfast ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

This place lives up to its name, with an incredible view from up high. I had the American Breakfast, prepared with scrambled eggs with gruyere cheese. Along the side were some little red-colored, soft peppercorns that tasted sweet, drizzled with fine balsamic vinegar. The fruit cocktail was freshly prepared, the espresso to die for, the baguette worthy of France, and the crepe sucre for dessert (yes, you get dessert with THIS amazing breakfast) was out of this world. The little shops nearby have nice souvenirs and low prices. Don't miss it.
