“Location good, cuisine heavy on garlic, carbs and cream”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

This is a nice location by the river, with a terrace by the water. The waiter was a friendly guy and helpful. However, the menu truly represented the fact that this cuisine is a strange and heavy fusion of Italian with Asian, all mixed with extra carbs, butter and cream. It was all too much for my liver; even the lightest thing on the menu was too rich. Wine was also pretty poor quality by the glass.
So, not my taste, but if you like food with everything on it and tons of garlic, its for you. It sure wasn't for me.

“Beautiful view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

This year was the first time we went there. We have really missed out. Great restaurant and unbelievable view of Orient.

There is a wonderful lady who has a stand outside of the restaurant who sells the local liquer and accepts donations for the animals on island. Please support her..she is wonderful and you can see first hand with all the animals that depend on her there!

“What a Treat!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

We went to Maro's on the recommendation of a long time islander and were not disappointed. The duck was really delicious and of the four of us, none of us were disappointed with our choices. Located on a canal, the location is lovely as the water is crystal clear and we could watch the fish from where we were seated.

Mario's offers fine dining. Reservations are needed.

“Food---Service---View!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

What can I say about this wonderful little piece of heaven?? When my husband & I went to St.Maarten for the week, we asked where to go for a special place to celebrate our anniversary. The recommendation was Mario's. It is so very wonderful that we after we ate, we immediately made reservations for 2 nights later. The restaurant is small but not crowded. They have a great wine list and the service is very personalized. We wish that we had found them earlier. Can't wait to go back!! Don't miss this one. The prices are in Euros so there is a conversion.They do take Visa/MC.
