My husband and I stumbled upon this restauant while on vacation in St. Maartin. The restaurant was cute, quiet and had great food! I absolutely loved the fresh baked croissants and my husband's favorite was the nutella crepes! The servers were very friendly and the service was very good. We found all the food on this island to be expensive, but Zee best's prices were very reasonable. Make sure you stop and visit this restaurant. You won't be dissappointed!

In 2010, I had my first taste of Zee Best while on holiday in sxm with a friend. She loves the sweets, I'm not a big sweet eater, but they are so incredible. Almond Croissant is to die for, quiche is fabulous and the traditional breakfast menu is so tasty. It is packed every day. They do have a new location by the rental car offices that is open later in the day, as well. Always remember that in the Caribbean, we are on island time. They are not on our time. It's a holiday, not a race for quick service.

It was right next to our rental car place so we stopped for snacks.

-Palmier was delicious, but who can dislike a baked stick of butter in the form of a pretty butterfly?
-Croissant: good.
-Chix tartine: basically, it's french bread, mustard, chicken, cheese, all baked together open faced. It was good, not zee best.
-Veggie tartine: similar to chix above but veggies. Friend said the mustard threw her off and she didn't like it.
-Ham & Cheese croissant: my bf liked it, but our friend said it was too greasy.
-Cheese
