“Wonderful food and funny owner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2014

Ricardo, the owner of this little restaurant, suprised us. We were on our way to find some food (it was our first day on the island) and we stopped at his restaurant. We were the only clients and were not sure if the food will be good (but we had not so mut choice without a car and were hungry). On top the price was not cheap in comparison to other "local" restaurants on the island. Please dont expect too much, it's just a small place on a terrasse but kind of cosy and with Carribean flair! Ricardo was very funny and had a chat with us. We ordered some shrimps with rice and when we received the meal it already looked wonderful. Some salad, beans and fried banana came on top. When we tasted it we were very, very satisfied. It was delicious!! We highly recommend to pay a visit because the food is good, fresh and the owner very very nice. We promised to send him a postcard from Germany because he also lived in Fulda for quite a while when he was young. I just finished to write it and will send it soon. If you ever visit him and see a postcard from "Paderborn" in his restaurant, it's from us :) Please say hi to him from Malena & Basti! :)

“Wonderful Food and Amazing Owners”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

We stopped here on an afternoon looking for a good place to celebrate my little sister's birthday. The fish sandwich I had was the best I've ever eaten. The plantains were amazing too, just the right texture and flavor. The owners serve as both the wait staff, the cooks and pretty much do everything on their own. They were some of the kindest most welcoming people I've met, just when we arrived we felt like we were returning to visit long time friends. You definitely must go!

“LOVED RICHARD and the GUTSIDE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

We went there for lunch and left with a friend- owner and chef Richard. One day we popped in and they were closed but we hung out he cooked us lunch and we had so much fun chatting. He was preparing a huge meal for his catering operation and we were able to test everything out! He brought back in the kitchen and showed us a round even.

Just an AWESOME guy and an AWESOME place to stop when in St. Martin.

Later buddy!

“Wonderful food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

Spent a wonderful evening with friends@ Gutside. We met Richard & his lovely wife several years ago & enjoyed Richard's cooking. On our recent visit, Richard cooked wonderful snapper creole with all the usual sides ( rice & peas, salad, & plantains). We also tried the garlic shrimp which was excellent. This was definitely our best meal on the island! (And we were there for two weeks!)
