“Be prepared :)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

I toyed with putting "very good" for Rainbow Cafe, and you definitely might if it was your scene. It wasn't really ours but we still enjoyed it. We ate breakfast there one morning and it was very pleasant, great view over the water, if a little pricy. The Monday Night Party was definitely an experience. We went a little early - I don't think the party really got going until closer to 11 pm. The DJ was fun, there were dancing girls on stage, fog machines, etc. A little crowded and loud for us but club people might really love it.

“Great day at Rainbow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

We have been coming to St. Martin for 30 years and have visitr favorite restaurants.ed Rainbow many times. When Rainbow changed hands we were skeptical at first because it was one of our favorite restaurants. The first year it was OK. By the second year Douglas brought it back to being a wonderful restaurant. The food has gotten better every year now it is what we would rate as excellent. In the past two weeks we have had 2 dinners and 1 lunch and were always pleased. . . . never disappointed! Today we had lunch on the beach and it was perfect. The service and the location can't be beat.

“Don't bother with this place unless your 20 years old and want to drink”

Bad food, poor service and dumb management. One of our party had the meat ball appetizer and it had bits of bone in it. The manager was told told but it was still on the bill. The other food was barely worth eating.

“terrible Food, Service and Music”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

The only thing going for this place is location - otherwise you can skip this spot! Food is mediocre at best, service awful and non stop terrible loud music that one can't even enjoy the sounds of the sea. There's an unnecessary arrogance and complete disregard for neighbours (I was staying several doors away and constantly disturbed) - as were other we spoke to.
There are so many other much much better and way classier restaurants in Grand Case with the same view of the water. This place should be considered a last resort - and even then.....

“a great experience all around”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

Rainbow was a wonderful dining experience. We ate there on two occasions during our most recent trip. Once as a party of three, and a second time as a party of six. Rainbow gets service and really cares for their customers. The servicers were warm and accomodating. The food was very solid. Maybe not a ten, but a solid eight and an half. A few of the dishes, like the grouper were outstanding, while the rest of the food was very good. The view and ambience was great. This is what excellent beach dining should feel like.
