“WONDERFUL AMBIANCE AND FOOD”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

This is a very nice outdoor seating restaurant in the Simpson Bay Resort. Flank steak and tuna were excellent. Ceviche was amazing. Service was good. The only issue we had was with the fact they would not serve tap water. We have stayed at the resort for many years and there is nothing wrong with ST Maarten water in Simpson bay. Just a few restaurants have decided to make the sale of water a profit center. The live music also enhanced the dining experience. Portion sizes were just adequate.

“good food and live music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

Nice little spot up the hill from the Atrium resort near the Red Piano Bar. Music was okay and food was good. Outdoor seating felt great with the breeze. Look for the Coors Light umbrella.

“Finally made an appearance and enjoyed!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

I have heard many great things about this gem restaurant in Simpson Bay. Been here for breakfast in the past and never realized that they served dinner. Looked online and loved the menu and decided to give it a try for the night. Started off great, enjoyed the escargot, which I rate in every restaurant. Very good. Had the flank steak with bernaise sauce. Delicious and would recommend. Only setback is the service. Not to knock the servers on the floor they were working very hard. But it was busy and another waiter would have made this a perfect spot. Stilll recommend for the food and atmosphere. Nice restaurant and will come back on my next visit.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

This place has amazing food and the best pizza on the island and fabulous sandwiches for take out for lunch. We also had dinner and the food was amazing just a little slow from a service standpoint. Definitely island time but worth it.
