“Friendly Environment and Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

We came here for lunch with a group of friends. A bunch of us had the panini's and the greek salad which were delicious! The cheesecake filled crepe was also very delicious as well as the homemade banana rum at the end of the meal! Perfect afternoon lunch!

“Joyful experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014 via mobile

They just moved into their new location on the bay side today! Restaurant was beautifully decorated, service was excellent and food was quite good. Greek salad was especially good and the salmon pasta was very tasty. Prices we're very reasonable. Not sure I'd drive across the island for dinner here but if you are in the Simpson Bay area it's an excellent choice for dinner! As an added plus, utilize the restrooms and you'll get a glimpse of the amazing boats in the harbor behind the restaurant!

“Best meal of my trip...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

After a wonderful week in St. Maarten, I was glad to have had the best meal of the entire trip on my last night here. The organic chicken with mushroom sauce was yummy. The veggies (without added garlic) were so fresh! The coffee... the cheesecake... the banana rum.... Yummmmmy! Vesna is an absolute sweetie to top it all off. I will absolutely return on my next visit to the island.

“Perfect for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

This restaurant is the perfect gem! You have so many wonderful options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Before heading to the beach, fill up on an amazing omlette, fresh pressed juice or ice coffee. They can also pack a sandwich for you to bring to the beach. For dinner, try the escargot, it is truly amazing and they offer extra bread to dip in the yummy butter sauce. I am always happy with their special entree options (I usually choose fish) which all come with delicious potatoes and steamed veggies. Saturday night is my favorite with Greek Mezze featuring choice of lamb or chicken skewers, grape leaves, tzatziki sauce, hummus and more. You definitely can not have an appetizer since there is so much with this dinner option. If dessert is your thing, there is always one home made option and you can't go wrong. PS they make a homemade banana rum which is delivered to your table at the end of the meal... one shot, two shots, three shots... more! The owners and staff make you feel right at home- Can't wait to stop by to their new location across the street!
