We had eaten here in previous visits and enjoyed it. We did enjoy it this time also, but it's now fairly pricey for what is average fare. I had grouper, which was well-prepared, but uninspired on an island where you are spoiled by inspired fare. My companion had a chicken special that was way too salty. The drinks were good,... More

Alberto was the best thing that I can say about this restaurant. He was considerate because of the slowness of the food being prepared, and brought us rolls etc. kept our water glasses etc full, and tried very hard to please us. Man it was SLOW.. slo sl o ......over and hour to get pizza.. really ?

We came here twice for lunch during our stay at the Westin. The fish sandwich on baguette was excellent. The views are pretty and it's very relaxing to sit and overlook the beach.

If you want to eat lobster go to Skipjacks in Simpson Bay. They more price friendly. And the food is good.

This is a nice spot for a quick lunch. They have delicious sandwiches and pizza. At night, the restaurant turns into Daniel's by the Sea. Great restaurant with lots of dinner options!

We were a little early. They allowed us to sit and have coffee while they set up. Nice touch. I get that it is not fine dining. The sausages we were served were deep fried so the skin was 1/2 off the links. The food is decently priced and the view is great.

Great lunch spot directly on the beach with a large menu. A very casual environment. Changes to Daniel by the Sea in the evening for dinner.

Busby's is a nice place for lunch or a good place to grab a beer at the end of the day. I had the Mahi Mahi, my gf had ribs, both were wonderful and at a cheap price. It's a good place to get a taste of the local flavor for low price.

Great spot on the beach with good food and drinks. We visited this restaurant many times during our stay to St. Maarten. I would highly recommend their grilled lobster for lunch with the rice and beans.
