Yes, there is entertainment a few nights, but the fish is heavily breaded and fried. If you like heavy breaded shrimp and ordinary burgers with fries, I guess you would enjoy this.

The reviews made this place sound good, and upon being seated I thought it would be. It's a charming, open-air restaurant (covered but open at each end) but we were seated a little too closed to the road (I was going to ask to be seated on the end closest to the marina but I noticed the tables at that end were marked as reserved). At first we were greeted by a waiter who really knew his stuff about the menu and specials, but had absolutely no warmth or charm...we just seemed like another chore to him. He took our drink orders and then disappeared. We were ready to order but he was nowhere in sight. We flagged down another waiter who very enthusiastically took our orders. Our food was delivered by yet another person, and finally a 4th person followed up to see if we needed anything else. The food was OK, not great...definitely pricey for what you get, even by St. Maarten standards.
