“A local bar with a neat twist.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

Very neat little bar just west of Azure hotel that was within walking distance,which we did, via the beach. I've got to give the owners kudos as they took an old bus and made it into a very quint bar. The bacon wrapped plantains were very unique and tasty. Their drinks were awesome and not priced too high. This is a must on your destination plans!

“Great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

Great service, food and a terrific view as well. A "diamond in the rough." I would never expect to be eating off of china and glassware at a casual beach bar. Unique offerings and tasty food at a reasonable price. Can't wait to return!

“Great food, gorgeous ocean, nice location..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

A wonderful place to spend the day. Free chairs, umbrellas & table on the ocean on the far side of the Princess Juiana Airport. Great drinks, food & music too. I had the Fete d' Cuisine which only happens once a year and I was fortunate to be at Karakter that day. For $40 I had a fabulous four course gourmet meal with 2 glasses of wine. Phenomenally delicious food... My new favorite beach & lunch place for sure...

“Great beach, kind and attentive service and really good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012 via mobile

We came here as a party of 9; 4 adults and 5 children. The waitstaff was super attentive and very friendly. They were very accommodating about one of our children's nut allergy. The food, drinks and service were great. We ordered kids meals and entrees which were cooked to perfection. We will definitely return here again.
