“Worst meal of our week in St. Maarten”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013 via mobile

Don't order any kind of meat. Fish was also over seasoned & dry. Difficult to find this restaurant but nice view. Service slow even though very few guests when we were there. Better restaurants in the area so avoid this one.

“excellent fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

We had a great dinner in a relaxing atmosphere. The menu gives you a varitey of possibilities to set up your own dish. You make up your choice out of one or different kinds of fish, you add your favorit sauce and you choose your sides out of a variety of potatoes, rice and vegis. The food has been excellent, service has been attentative. We'll be back! M&B - Switzerland

“Great time Snorkeling!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

We really wanted to get out in the water and explore some reefs and the local marine life. During orientation at the Oyster Bay, we had signed up for Captain Oliver’s snorkeling trip. It was very cheap and probably one of the best experiences we had during our stay in St. Maarten. My wife had never been snorkeling and or seen sea turtles up close. Needless to say, if you want to get up close and personal with some beautiful fish and sea turtles, taking a snorkeling trip with Capt. Oliver is a must!

“Yum!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Yum! The tuna tartare was the best I've ever had. The way it was served with the coconut was delicious! Would go back simply for that! The atmosphere was nice being on the water. The service was slow and lacking a bit. Large portions! A little pricey bt a good value in my opinion.
