Ate here twice last week including Valentines. Food was as good as any on the island we ate, atmosphere great on the marina and the staff very friendly. Owner was present for valentines and made sure to check on every one. Lots of parking or a cheap cab from Phillipsburgh area. We walked one night fairly late from the Sonesta and had no issues. Be sure to try the spicy scallop entree and the french onion soup. Although not on the menu they have blackened Mahi Mahi that was amazing. Spoke to people who went for lunch and they had much the same feelings with the lunch menu.

So it isn't fine dining. Our food was very good and very inexepnsive. It was one of the less expensive dinners we had. I had fish and my husband had the seafood platter. Service was service in the Caribbean-no great rush. We were in no hurry though. There is a parking lot connected where you get your ticket validated for 2 hours. It is a casual restaraunt on the marina. Would go back.

I've been to Chesterfield's a couple of times. The food is okay but not fantastic (actually the Mahi BLT wrap is great!). Definitely a good place to go for convenience...until our last visit. We went for our lunch break. It took 50 minutes for the food to come out (very simple orders - wraps and burgers), then we had to ask repeatedly for condiments, to go boxes, and the check. It was a disaster, and we had to run out so that one of us could make a meeting.

I had the lobster bisque which was good and the carribeean lobster. I would say lobster is small, but lots of side dishes with it. Husband had grouper and enjoted it very much.

Chesterfields is located in a marina on Great Bay between the busy tourist shopping area and the cruise ship terminal. A short walk from each, but ample 2 hour free parking is available. Get your parking stub stamped at the restaurant. The restaurant provides wonderful views of the turquoise waters of "Great Bay". There is always a cool breeze. It is frequented by locals and "in the know" island visitors. We have a residence on the island & spend 4 to 6 months annually here in St.Maarten,all seasons. Chesterfields is our favorite island spot for breakfast. When the menu lists eggs, pancakes/French toast, bacon, link sausage, it does not mean your choice. It means you get a generous portion of everything, high quality, all for less than $10. This is a real bargain almost anywhere but on St.Maarten it is almost a steal. You may have a wait to be seated for breakfast on weekends. The wait is well worth it. Chesterfields fills with locals who know about the great food, low prices, and good service. The staff is terrific. Basil always provides great service with a genuine warm smile and for us his greeting includes a hug. Chesterfields is located across the island from our home. Although always worth the trip, if it was located closer we would be there every day.
