Chef Owner Sherman does a wonderful job in managing this waterfront restaurant at Oyster Pond. A longtime chef on the island, he brings "just good food" with the expected Caribbean touch but truly good continental flare. Service is quite good and you should enjoy an evening in this lovely waterside spot.

This is very close to our hotel, the Westin. We found everyone to be very friendly and even with out a reservation we still got a table. The Mahi was great, but even better were the Flambe Plantains! The second visit I had the Shrimp in Coconut Sauce , better than the coconut shrimp anywhere else! Desserts also very good! Try to get a table on the water if possible.

We stopped to check out their menu as we enjoyed our evening stroll, although we already had dining plans. Before we left, however, we both spotted interesting pasta dishes and after a brief conversation with staff, made reservations for another evening and were rewarded with a ticket for two complimentary cocktails to be used with two dinners. We were not at all disappointed with the excellent dockside table, enjoying fresh evening trade wind breezes and a great marina view. Our dinners were excellent and portions were large, so much so that we took my wife's remaining seafood pasta back to our unit at Oyster Bay and split it for dinner on our veranda the next evening! We also recommended Canoa to friends who had similar very positive experiences. We will definitely return!

One of the best meals of the trip! Recommend one makes a reservation to eat on the dock itself. We did not and sat inside. Although it felt like outdoor/open air seating as many walls were open. Beatiful ambiance, nice service and great food. What more can you ask for!

Canoa was very close to our vacation villa, so we were inclined to give it a try our last evening in St. Martin. We were so glad we did. The meal was great, and I could have more than 1 glass of wine since we could walk home!! Trust me though, that was not what made the meal great. We had a very nice waiter take care of us. The plantain appetizer was awesome; wine prices were some of the best we saw during our restaurant visits; and, the location overlooks Oyster Pond which made for a peaceful meal.
