The Blue Martini is one of those fantastic, modern, casual yet somehow kind of swanky, island restaurant/bars. The ambiance is really calm, with some options in terms of seating and activity.
It's open sky in the dining area which is beautiful. There are wooden structures around/over most tables from which fabric hangs to the floor and billows in the breeze. (breeze subject to change)
There is another seating area which faces the main road that is inside, but open air of course. There are comfortable chairs with small tables settled under ambient lighting.
Still another area is the bar itself. The bar is quite big, and runs along the side/back of the open sky dining area but doesn't intrude, even with the tv's that are behind the bar.
The Blue Martini hosts bands fairly often although not the night I was there.
The food was excellent, the cocktails generous and tasty and a little different. The service was incredibly gracious.
I will go back the next time I'm in St. Maarten for sure.
