Some of the other reviews seem to me to be overblown. This was a nice place, with a nice wait staff, and the food was good but certainly not cheap. Like most places I saw in St. Maarten, most if not all the seating was outside, and the view from this place is mostly parking lots and streets.

We chose this restaurant for our 10th wedding anniversary. My husband met with Chris and Yo-yo to set up the reservation the night before. He asked for a nice set-up with flowers for the table. When we arrived for our dinner, the table was beautifully set with bright pink and white flowers and palm leaves all around the table complete with a bottle of champagne. The food was excellent and Yo-yo was a phenomenal waiter. He treated us like royalty and truly made our anniversary extra special. He recommended the Apple Tart Tatin dessert and it was delicious! The Apple Tart Tatin with homemade French Vanilla ice cream was the cherry on top of a perfect evening!!!

I had dinner here and the setting was comfortable. my "exotic" salad was plain and unsavory. the person whom I dined w/ ordered a stuffed fish and it tasted well. The crepe dessert was yummy but nothing special. service was good in comparison to island standards. after reading other reviews and seeing photos on instagram I'd like to try breakfast here sometime.

Ate here the first night we were here and had the best meal of our trip. Came back mid week for drinks and appetizers and was pleased. Decided to eat here for our last night on the island and was served and ate most of a chicken cordon blue that was partially raw. (Hoping not to get sick as we fly out tomorrow) It was recooked and was better. No discounts offered and was charged full price. They did provide us with a complimentary dessert. Would have been an excellent review had this not happened. Seating is in a dimly lit street side environment, had to us the oil lamp on the table to inspect the chicken after I thought it was raw.
