“Not so great”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2012

We had high expectations for this restaurant based on prior reviews but did not like the food very much. It was a very busy, and fairly friendly place, but the menu was full of very heavy dishes. I ended up having a salad, and my husband had to settle for fish and chips (rather than the tilapia filet he was hoping for). In the end, maybe it had more to do with us not knowing what type of restaurant it was, oh well!

“Nice food, reasonable prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2012

This is an unpretentious place, which is really nice to have a lunch. The service is really good and consistent. The food is always good. Prices are reasonable. Try the chicken wraps.

“Always a good spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2012

Pineapple Pete's is famous in St. Maarten. The food is always good, the staff are great and there's always a lot happening here. Always reliable for lunch or dinner - but you probably want a reservation!

“Yummy all the time!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2012

This was our 3rd trip to St. Maarten and we found the food and the service to be as good as always. Keep it up Pineapple Pete's! The steak, fish and the stuffed shrimps were to die for!
