We went to Izi's on our second day on St Maarten because we heard a flight passenger on our plane saying how good it was. We had no reservations but we were early enough to get a seat on the terrace. We waited at least 10 minutes to be asked for our drink order but finally someone came after my husband went inside to ask for service. We didn't get the bottle of wine we ordered until my husband asked where it was 25 minutes later. Another waitress took our meal order so we weren't sure who to ask when we wanted anything. Never had the 3 button gizmo to push that everyone has said on TA. I ordered lasagna and my husband had the calamari. My lasagna was dried out and my husband's meal was just ok. On a positive note our busboy was fantastic and my husband told the owner so. Our hotel owner told us about Valentinos at the Simpson Bay Yacht Club so we went several nights later and I ordered the lasagna to compare. Valentinos was far superior and the ambience is wonderful. It bothered us at Izi's to see the owner all over his staff. Except for us they were doing a great job in extremely busy circumstances. On the other hand we went to Valentinos 3 times in 12 days and were pampered every time and had fabulous meals! Don't miss trying it! We didn't go back to Izi's.
