“Great for breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

Awesome views on the beach. The service was horrible, but we came to expect that here. The food was good and exactly what I needed to deal with my hangover.

It was so wonderful that we went there three nights in a row! The wine list is impeccable! The food is fabulous! The service is unparalleled! This is a must visit in St. Maarten.

“Disappointed...'cause it was on my FAV list”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

Visited week of Feb 9-16 2014...went for lunch and had what I always had...the lobster salad...I should have guessed there was something off...we were 4 for lunch and I was the only one that had flies all over my plate...and the lobster had a VERY seafood/iodine taste...I could not and would not finsih it...I should have said something but did not...we do not like to "complain"...anyways I was sure I would be sick as for 1-2 days I could not get that taste out of my mouth...I was not sick but will not have any lobster again and Mr Busbuy's....maybe for a drink...we did take chairs on the beach and the Bar service was good...super nice guy...

Traveler1928, Manager at Mr. Busby's Beach Bar / Daniel's By The Sea, responded to this review, March 8, 2014
Hello

i am truly sorry that you did not say anything , it is important in my business to constantly monitor everything that goes on for one can only be in one place at a time and unfortunately this means that I can not monitor all dishes consistently , your feedback negative or positive is what allows us to succeed , our lobster comes live from our tank so should there be anything wrong with it it is important for me to know .
As far as the flies goes this is typical for lobster , these are sand flies and they are highly attracted and sensitive to the scent of lobster , this happens even with drilled lobsters that come fresh from our tank to the table .

Thank you for your feedback .

Daniel

Stopeed by for early breakfast on last day. Great omelet, can't beat the view. You are 5ft from the sand of Dawn beach.
