We ended up here 3 times during our week in SXM. Beach, food, service - great. Coconut shrimp and fish cakes are very good. We shared the grilled shrimp plate one day, and the chicken skewers with peanut sauce another day. Huge portions, and we thought reasonably priced. Will be back on our next trip.

During our week visiting St. Maarten we we went to Karakater's at two different times. The first time we went in the afternoon for the beach and sun. As long as you bought a drink or some food from them your chair and umbrella was free. Other beaches charge anywhere from 15-25 for 2 chairs and umbrella. The appetizers very tasteful and the beer's came in a bucket filled with ice.
The next time that we visited Karakter's we went for dinner. The Fish was cooked to perfection and a generous portion for each of us. We ordered a bottle of red wine that aaas very reasonable. Anyone who visits St. Maarten this place is a must see.

I have been to St Martin a few times and enjoy travelling around the island in search of a great beach restaurant. Karacters has become one of my favourite places. It has a fabulous location on Simpson Bay and serves up great meals and outstanding drinks. In the evenings and certain afternoons they often have live music, giving this place great atmosphere. The cots are either free or available for a nominal charge when you are ordering food, so if you are looking for a beach to hang out at for the day, this is a great spot. Food is reasonably priced unlike many of the beach restaurants on the French side. Friday evenings they serve up a great tapas menu, but go early as it can get crowded. Sometimes service is slow, especially on a busy day/night so be patient and enjoy the breezes.
