“How can you beat...”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

... a restaurant on beautiful, unspoiled Saba called Swinging Doors? And it actually has swinging doors in front. This is the only place in the Caribbean that I have had a burger. The food is good and the atmosphere is friendly and fun, but that really doesn't matter. You just can't go to Saba and not go into a place called Swinging Doors.

“Excellent food with a nice casual ambience”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

We love this restaurant and try to dine here at least twice on every trip to Saba. The owners are so accommodating and make getting a good meal after a night dive easy as they serve late to make sure everyone gets fed. Their steak nights and rib and chicken nights are island icons cooked by Eddie. Nothing fancy about the presentation but oh my is the food delicious. It is served by a friendly and efficient staff. Swinging Doors is one of our all time favorites and if you're in Saba, you won't want to miss it either!

“Smoked meat from heaven, landed on saba.”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

When your walking around the island, and you hear where the locals make a reservation - so they don't miss out, well, its a good sign of good food soon to be coming to your plate.
Pick your wine from the clear choice at the bar, relax in the beer garden or inside in the comfortable ambience.
Enjoy the food . Its good for the soul.

“excellent BBQ and bar”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

cant say enough about how fun and friendly the bar /restaurant was..it is the watering hole for the "locals".you couldnt find a more friendly crowd anywhere. made sure to stop in each evening for a cocktail and chat. they even were able to squeeze me onto a dive boat last minute when i told them the shops said they were full the next day..(i didnt have a phone or know who to call , the whole bar got on their cell phones and called around til i was set!!!) a must if you are in SABA. Cash only so hit up the atm around the corner ;)
