“Favorite Restaurant on Saba”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2012

My husband and I spent a week on Saba over Christmas. We ate out every night and Bistro del Mar was by far our favorite dining experience. Our meals were so tasty, the atmosphere and views are beautiful and the service could not have been better. If we decide to return to Saba we'll probably stay at the hotel given how great the service is and the breathtaking setting.

So happy you came to Bistro del Mare and took time to write about your visit. We are pleased we can offer so many different seafood items on our menu and of course being in the Caribbean and surround by the water... well it somewhat goes hand in hand. I love seafood but I am a huge fan of red meat which is why are menu features beef carpaccio lamb osso bucco, rack of lamb, beef filet, beef porterhouse, veal chop, pork tenderloin, prime rib and pork chop; There are at least 5 different red meat offerings on our menu at all times. Additionally we offer vegetarian items and are always willing to work with special dietary needs when possible.

“Come here for the panoramic view and sunset”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2011

We thought our hotel room had a good view, but the view from up at here was incredible. And the food and drinks aren't bad either, though the driveway can be a fright.

“Best Food on the Island!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2011

I have been to Bistro del Mare on 2 separate trips to Saba and have to say that this is the best food on the island! Both times the chef prepared the best meals I had on the island, including a meal prepared to be paired with a special wine I brought. The fish was prepared and complemented the Kistler Chardonnay I had brought! Thanks for a special meal!

“A once in a lifetime dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2011

The food was excellent. We had the tuna and the mahi-mahi. Both dishes were wonderfully prepared. They have an excellent wine list and homemade desserts. The staff is very friendly, and the ambiance is amazing. We can't wait to come back!
