Some of the best food on Statia -- an island with good food all around. And reasonably priced. I had goat one night which was excellent. Lobster another with ample portions. My dinner partners had the fish which they said was delicious and especially liked the spicy fish.

Sit on the upper deck and enjoy the breeze. We enjoyed the spicy fish, lobster and goat dishes. The broccoli pie side dish was novel and tasty.

This restaurant is an OK alternative after you have tried the other great places on the island. It's located right next to the fort and the view from the terrace really is nice. Service can be a bit slow and they don't always have everything on the menu available but the food is good.

The place is open to the outside but the breeze is welcome, the food is probably amongst the best on the island and the staff - both of them - are extremely friendly. There is the only problem with the place, the service is great, just a little slow but the food makes it worth the wait.

They have a side dish called broccoli pie. Make that one of your side dishes. You won't regret. I would not order steak here. My friends have enjoyed their local dishes and curry dishes. I've had their teriyaki fish and it's very good.

Went to Ocean View Terrace twice on our week's stay. You can either be seated upstairs with a view of the ocean or downstairs in the garden. Either place is nice just depends on what you want. We liked that the restaurant is run by a couple. Renee waits all the tables so if its busy you may have to... More

Very friendly staff and very accommodating. I had snapper and it was excellent (I'm from Florida and have seafood 80% of the time) and I mean excellent. A nice red wine in a nice big glass was a bonus. A great value in the middle of the old historic downtown.

Nice view, which unfortunately could not make up for the food. The fries are deep-fried to death. There was no flavour or potato left in them but oil and grease. Nothing on the menu is fresh, which the waiter did tell us when asked before ordering, but the fish was thrown directly from the freezer into the frying pan, which... More
