We had a great start to our vacation with dinner at Pineapple Pete. A nice place to go for great food and drinks. We were a party of nine and all of us enjoyed our meals. After dinner were able to buy a bottle of wine to go in a nice cooler bag with ice. Definitely a great place to... read more

We had great meals! The stuffed shrimp was fantastic. Also the seafood soup ($15ish sound expensive for soup-but it was full of different seafood and completely worth the price). The jerk chicken was way too spicy for me, but my husband enjoyed it. The bright Caribbean colors of the interior really add to the enjoyment of food.

We were so excited to visit Pineapple Pete's this year, as we've heard so many great things about it. Maybe that's why we were a little underwhelmed. Nothing was bad, from service to drinks to food, just average.

We visit St.Martin frequently. We had not planned on eating at Pineapple Pete's until we found ourselves in need of a light lunch or snack before going to a movie matinee at the theater across the street. Typical menu, huge drink menu. We sat in the breezeway, but it was still extremely hot. It's casual and I believe they still... More
