“Cheap and cheerful grilled treats”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

From the moment we arrived in St Martin, everyone recommended we visit the lolos to eat and there's a great reason for that.

A casual setting right near the water, with the smoky smell of char wafting through the air, there's nowhere else I'd rather be having a lazy island lunch.

We tried both Sky's the Limit and Talk of the Town and while both were great, Talk won my husband's heart with their grilled chicken; so much so that we went back 4 times during our week here. The grilled shrimp were excellent, smoky, but sweet in that fresh from the water way. The cod accras and Johnnycakes were light and crispy too. The only thing we tried that Sky's has them beat on was the Mac and cheese. Beans and rice, curry rice and potato salad were fantastic, too. This place is just good, simple food, extremely well made.

For $10-20/person including an alcoholic beverage and enough food to put you into a coma, it can't be beat!

Next time we come to St Martin, maybe we'll try the other lolos, but with food that good, you hardly need to.

“What a meal!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

This is great food on the cheap! The ribs were phenomenal and the shrimp delicious, and even with a couple side orders each and a yummy cocktail, our meal was only about $30. Can't be beat!! If you are allergic to smoke, make sure to get a table on the outer edges, because there is quite a cloud that rolls off the barbeques...difficult to see across the lolo when things get rolling!

“Great LoLo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Ending up eating here two suppers after the first one being so good. Best Ribs I have had in a while and cheap beer. If you are looking for some fun and a cheap dinner for GC go for it you will not be disappointed.

“Easy dining with children”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Food was decent, couldn't have been easier with children. My 4 year old was in heaven, and we didn't have to worry about disturbing others, just very relaxed. Lots going on around us to distract even the most fidgity child. Perfect for us.

“Best value for your money in Grand Case!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Went on Tuesday for their bbq ribs and chicken - it was absolutely the best. And Coors Light beer for a dollar - does it get any better??? It was so good that we went back a week later.
