Great restaurant overlooking Simpson Bay and a forever pool. At the end of the road for all the resorts so many don't even know it is there. Breakfast and lunch are reasonable and many options. Dinner offers mostly Caribbean entrees but the spice can be medium to hot. A DJ plays Caribbean music as well as music from the 60's to 80's. A very enjoyable place to relax for an evening of beach and fun. Prices are usual for the Island, averaging in the $20's and $30's US. US currency is the norm, tipping can only be in cash throughout the island and very few restaurants accept the tip on a charge card.

after visiting st maarten a few times and staying at la vista resort, we finally decided to eat here. we have only been there for the free snacks or breakfast previously. we usually do not go out for expensive dinners so we decided to try a lunch. we went back twice. my wife really liked the burgers and i really liked the price. even though the dinner menu is on the pricey side, the breakfast and lunch are very well priced. and there are plenty of options to choose from. the la vista resort is home to the hideaway restaurant and is a nice quiet location beside the pool with an ocean view. it is probably one of the under used restaurants in the area. but if you are looking for a very reasonably priced breakfast or lunch, you should give it a go.

Service was terrible, waiter was rude and obnoxious.
He was upset that we asked for lime in an cosmo martini.
He said he didn't learn that in school.

It is attached to the LaVista timeshare office and pool. Do not let this put you off. Very good food prepared by a French chef who has been there for over 20 years. Excellent atmosphere and service.
Make sure you make a reservation, tabls are limited.

I am on vacation with my family in St. Maarten, Antilles. We have a time share here and love the island. Anyway, my youngest daughter got here before us and said this restaurant was great so we went. i found the staff very friendly. The place was small. The food was excellent per my wife and children (older). I thought my food was very good although I was disappointed in the amount of scallops in the shrimp and scallop dinner.The price was high even for the island. For 5 of us it was over $200. Maybe, it's me with the cost.
With all this said, I would still recommend this restaurant for a quiet get away place to eat.
