My wife and I live in St Maarten. We have a close friend visiting from Canada. We took her for lunch and were so happy that we did. The food and juices were fantastic. We will definitely be regulars at this great little Vegan restaurant!

We had the pleasure of eating at this vegan heaven during a visit to St. Martin. The food was just so good, and so good for us! The greens had so much flavor, everything made just right and so flavorful. Loved the owners, such lovely...people. They were kind enough to show us all the greens they grow. They have a farm up in the mountains also. Highly recommend this restaurant!!!More

My wife and I have been going here for years. Years ago they were the only truly vegan restaurant on the island. Now they are the best. We enjoy feeling so at home and the bond that everyone in the place instantly feels. The whole...family that runs the place have their own jobs and do it so well! Can’t wait to return!More

I'm not vegan. I'm not vegetarian. Not even close Freedom Fighters is now at the top of the list of my favorite restaurants on the island. Is it flashy? No. Is it trendy? No. But the food is fresh, it is prepared with heart, and...it is tasty/healthy. I left there inspired to eat healthier and I've recreated their soup for the second time on my trip here. I'm feeling better already. Without a doubt, Freedom Fighters has provided me the most satisfying meal I have had on the island in quite some time. It's a little off the beaten path, but worth the trip. We have 10 more days here and intend to eat there several more times before we leave.More

Freedom Fighters Ital Shack is off the beaten paths of the Philipsburg boardwalk but is definitely worth the short trip out of town. The food was delicious! Good portions too. A great healthy vegan meal. They serve one dish that changes often so you never...know what the day may bring. Love the interior of the restaurant with a great local Rasta vibe. The staff was very friendly and took the time to explain the day's meal. And don't forget to get one of the locally made juice drinks. The one made with hibiscus was amazing, so good I had to order one to go. You don't have to be vegan to appreciate the fresh delicious local recipes.More

Fresh, natural ingredients that you can tell the owner and chef takes pride in. It is very clean, prices are very reasonable and it feels like you are tasting the Caribbean at its finest. This is one of those "special gems" you find where the...locals eat. We have eaten in 5 star and road side grills, so we are just looking for great food. This amazing place meets our high standards for dining out in an amazing spot. Do yourself a favor and try it out, let your hair down and have fun too! You will have to slow down when driving past or you might miss it!More
