I can't imagine traveling to St. Martin and NOT dining at the Ocean Lounge. Its understated elegance, fine food and magnificent views are not to be equaled on the Dutch Side.

The Ocean Lounge deserves a “10”! The architecture, the decor, the setting, the view, the service, food preparation, presentation & flavors - ALL OUT OF THIS WORLD! Our BEST dining experience on St. Martin!

Beautifully appointed, open air restaurant on the beach. Good food and kind staff. Perfect for a family day at the beach, kids enjoyed jet skis, and we were offered complimentary lounge chairs on the beach after lunch. A lovely place not to be missed.
