“great food - shame about the drinks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

My wife and I ate here twice this vacation. Once for lunch and another time for dinner. For lunch we shared the Calamari and the jerk chicken. The Calamari was very good, but the Jerk chicken was terrific. We were looked after very well, including several visits from one of the owners. We did so well, we decided to pay another visit on the friday night of the Phillipsburg boardwalk festival. We were given great seats out on the patio overlooking one of the stages for the festival. This time, the service was just OK, although we did get several visits again from the owners and they were crazy busy. I had the steak and my wife the salmon. Both were outstanding, and this is for 2 dishes that can be harshly judged by a western Canadian as we have great access to both of these products at a pretty high level. The issue we had, that was very annoying, was the drinks. In the space of under 2 hours, we each had 2 mudslides, then I switched and had 2 strawberry dacquiris and my wife had 2 rum and cokes. Well, I should have felt a bit of a buzz, and my wife should have needed a wheelchair..... But nothing...... no buzz at all. We actually ran into this a few times this holiday and never had before on the island. Nothing P's us off more than no or little alcohol in drink that you pay good money for. I know frozen drinks are often a culprit for short pours but this was crazy. Yes it was happy hour, but that is still no excuse. Seeing mudslides are pretty much all booze, it's a real art to be able to make a tasty one with a short pour. This was a shame and a real downer as the rest of the meal was so good, and was one of the better meals we had on this vacation and we had some great ones over our two weeks. It made us so mad, that even though the food was so good, we probably won't pay a return visit on the next trip. Attention ownership, this is not a reputation you want attatched to your establishment, please look into it and fix it before it becomes a common complaint in this forum.

“Relax on the beach and have drinks and food delivered to you”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

As we walked along the boardwalk in St Maarten we were offered lounge chairs and an umbrella for $10/day rental by a young man named Kendell Emmanuel. After allowing us to pick a pair of lounge chairs and situating an umbrella for us he offered to bring us drinks and food all day from the above bar where he worked. In addition we could use their restroom. He would check on us many times and bring us a new bucket of 5 imported beers and ice (only $10). The beach there was nice and within easy walking distance from our cruise ship. We had a great time!

“Beach Front Dining”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

The meals on the Dutch side don't seem to be as amazing as they do on the French side. This was no exception. It was a fine meal, I'd say the equivalent of a Ruby Tuesday's or TGI Friday's in the US. It did have outdoor seating and a great view of the beach at sunset.
