“Don't Miss It”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

We ate at Captain Oliver's last night and cannot say enough nice things about this restaurant. Service was attentive without being overbearing. Food was amazing. My sister had the escargot appetizer - 12 escargot in a lovely sauce served on puff pastry - wonderful presentation. My husband had the tuna sashimi with lemon butter dipping sauce - he said it melted in his mouth. Our entree's were superb as well - shrimp, sirloin steak and surf & turf. Both steaks were cooked to perfection, the bearnaise sauce was delicious and the sides were outstanding too. We raved over the tomato provencal that came with my steak. The profiterole dessert quickly disappeared between the three of us. The live music was very enjoyable without being intrusive, and watching our waiter dance with one of the other diners was a high point.
We arrived at the same time as a ferry, which made getting to the parking lot a challenge, but the meal was worth every bit of difficulty. Don't miss it!

“Eat here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

One of my favorite places to eat in St. Maarten. The atmosphere is unique and relaxing. Service is good. Live music is wonderful. Food was amazing--some of the best salmon I have ever eaten. You do not want to miss this place.

“Great carpaccio and Mahi mahi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

I had tuna carpaccio with coconut. Far too much coconut but the tuna was plentiful. We also had the grilled Mahi Mahi; They also had sashimi the fish was fresh and plentiful. The view was great and we where you could see into the water from the floor. The ambience was nice as well. The service was great, a little stiff but very professional. Enjoy our experience there and will go back.

“Nice view on the dock”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

Good food and most nights they have live music. Service is decent and the prices are not too bad. Get a drink at the dock bar and overlook the marina and bay. A good place to get a decent meal in the Oyster pond area of St. Martin.

“Recommend Captain Olivers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

Friends and my wife and I had dinner at Captain Olivers on Thursday March 6, 2014 and really enjoyed the appetizers and meal. The waiters and staff conducted themselves in a very professional manner and the food was as good as some of the best we had while vacationing in St. Martin. We also shared the Saturday night buffet on two other evenings and once again the food and service were very good. There is dancing and music on Saturdays and I must say the dance floor was crowded including a group of local Gendarmes which made the evening special.
