What a great find. Food and staff are excellent. We've been traveling to St.Maarten for years and just recently had the pleasure of dining at Canoa. One of the best restaurants on the island.

What a great little restaurant. Service was excellent food was amazing and the deserts were out of this world. I had the key lime pie. My husband had the raspberry cheesecake. The stuffed grouper was excellent and the tuna was cooked to perfection.

We love this place. Try the amazing Canoa Plantain appetizer. The description might sound odd, but it is delicious. The Jerked Double Center cut pork chop was probably the best thing I ate all week, seasoned and cooked perfectly.

Service wasn't as good as it had been the first time, and our entrees were just okay. Appetizers both times were fantastic, as was... More

A friend who had been here before recommended this restaurant and did it blow our minds. We were a table of 9 and the staff was kind enough to seat us before restaurant opening time as we came a bit early. The food was fresh and staff was attentive. We had more than 15 dishes and they were all too... More

This beautiful small restaurant is located in the dock and has excellent cuisine. The night we went they had music and it was much fun as well. The setting is unique being by the water and the service was great.

Canoa is one of the best restaurants on the island. The service is great and the food is tremendous. It is a welcome change to the sometimes over-the-top French fare in Grand Case. The flavors are layered and complex, and the offerings are varied. Every person that I've taken to this restaurant (who knows food) loves it! Being a foodie,... More
