The rhum is good, our favorite is the coconut rhum we bought quite a few bottles to bring back home and share with family members. The gelateria makes yummy gelato and we had good eats in the restaurant part. We didn’t get to experience the rhum distillery tour but our host gave us flight samples and told us about the history which was good enough for us! Had a great time!

Awesome atmosphere & wonderful meal here. Didn't do the Rhum tour. We spent 10 days in St Maarten & wanted to eat at a different restaurant each night, otherwise we would have come back here a second time.

We first ate gelato there (very good). And some lunch on another day (good). Unless you really want to spend $26.95 for a tour to understand distilling molasses into rum (you can Google that) , save your money, go , eat some lunch, sample the different flavors of rum (for free), and eat the gelato. I think the rum tour probably hokey and for the gullible . But their rum flavors are good and innovative.

Toppers has always been one of our favorite stops on our many trips to Saint Martin. Today we went to the new location for the first time. The location in very nice. The staff are professional but not friendly at all. They now charge for everything. Tasting were once free and fun, no more. The price of the tour went up to $25 a person. It’s a good tour but $25 is over priced. We ate at the restaurant. Food was not so good. The best thing about the place is the amazing female bartender. She is on top of things, pleasant as well as professional.

What a great find. Our host Cristina was extremely knoligeable and informative. The rum tasting was the best I have ever been to. It's small boutique distillery but they manufacture over 20 plus different flavored Rum. We sampled many different flavored rums. I highly recommend it. They are also a restaurant which will definitely try next day or so. They also sell gelato which also is excellent. I cannot say enough good comments about it. We will definitely go back soon next time we are in the Island. Definitely try it you will not be dissapointed.

We stopped in to just grab a few trinkets as the brand name Topper's is one familiar to us in Northern Ontario but for an entirely different product. Our intention was to just stop in briefly and pick up a few souvenirs however we ended up staying longer. There's a lot to experience and try here, not just rhum, however this is the draw.
We stayed for a couple of drinks in the restaurant which I was thrilled to see a drink made with Ting so I had to try it. My girlfriend had the best Mai Tai of our stay.
Although we didn't book a tour, we were really fortunate to have met Cristina while shopping, what a gem of a "guide" this lovely young lady is. She really made our experience here that much better, and was so helpful in selecting which rhum to bring back with us. Next time we come here, we are booking a tour with her.

Great tasting Experience!! Tia was delightful, smiling and very knowledgeable about her rhum. We got to meet Mr Topper himself, Mrs Topper and creator of the flavored rhum and the daughters. Had a wonderfully cook meal at lunch in the restaurants new location while enjoying a cool breeze and beautiful views. Everyone here is smiling and really appears to love the people they work for!! Great job

This was a nice pitstop! We went buy, did some rhum tasting, had some Gelato, and sat at the bar for a while to try some delicious rhum based cocktails (with the rhums they make inside).

We had the Mocha Mama Espresso Martini, the White Chocolate Raspberry Martini, a Cosmo, and a Lemonade Cocktail. They were all delicious but the Macha Mama Espresso Martini is a MUST have after a long day of tours and being drained by the sun.

Wonderful and pleasant visit of a real, hand made Rhum distillery. Open bar on the samples and lots of information about them and their products were offered. Good, friendly staff. Very well done!

Cristina and the tour was fantastic. Avoid the restaurant like the plague. The poor bartender was doing everything. The wait-staff botched our order, we told her it was wrong, forgot to bring our drinks, and when I went up to cancel, she looked very confused. Of course she was eating her cheeseburger. Finally got the last meal, wrong again. They added the 15% gratuity in the bill. I figure it’s the only way they can get one. Feel bad for the bartender. FIRE THE WAIT STAFF!
