The ribs are the best I have had. My husband had the goat curry and loved it, we wanted to return before we left but ran out of time!

Fantastic food and friendly service. We had the vegetarian spring rolls as an appetizer. They were delicious! I had the chicken with a wonderful sauce as my entree. It was fabulous.

This was the best meal I had while in St. Maarten. The shrimp was perfectly cooked and well seasoned without being overpowering. The service was excellent!

Best food we have had on the island so far. Also best service. Our kids split the filet mignon, I had shrimp skewers and husband had mahi. Food tasted excellent, presentation was nice too. We all cleared our plates and my kids are picky eaters so I was surprised how they devoured it. Cash only so go prepared

The owners, Joe and her fiancé are the friendliest people I have ever met. I HIGHLY recommend the Jerk shrimp wrap. It was phenomenal!!!! I would say the same thing about the curry chicken. They even have a kids menu. Everything is good value and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Exceptional! Fun, friendly, efficient service. Very reasonable prices. And incredible homemade food. I had the spring rolls (delicious), Greg's lasagne (delectable), and though full, had to try the carrot cake ... not just the best carrot cake I've ever had, the best cake of any kind I've had anywhere in the world. Come as a guest, and you'll leave as... More

We ended up at The Palms restaurant based on reviews from TripAdvisor and it was such an awesome choice!!! We were staying in Little Bay (maybe 15 min away) and it was definitely worth the drive.

What a find! Greg was an outstanding host and the food was fantastic. The drunken ribs are not to be missed. My friend ordered the grilled shrimp and said it was the best plate of food she had so far! Portion size was great. Wish they took credit cards, it's cash only but would go back again and highly recommend... More
