We were recommended to visit here by a local merchant. It reminded me of the many small restaurants of this kind in Paris. Service was good, food was above average. The menu offered many options with quite a few Pizza variations. Being a little off the corner, it was quite,in the shade,and cool.

My husband and I stopped by while walking on Front street. Its a little tucked away but a treat. A gentleman greeted us and showed us to the specials board and seated us. We orders sandwiches with salads. The waiter was friendly and attentive. Would definitely go again!

I was very hungry and had the local dish fried. It was very good but definitely pricey. I do not think I'd go back there.

I live in St Maarten and work a few blocks away, so this is a place I frequent often. The food is consistently good and the ambiance and service is always welcoming, warm and friendly. The menu prices are perfect for us "workers" as some of the places in town cater more to tourists and really don't care if you... More

We noted they were closed immediately when we entered and turned around to leave, first staff member saw us leave and felt she needed to point out that they... More

This restaurant came highly recommended by a store owner in town. The food was OK, my wife did not like her burger, fries were hot and fresh. The server was friendly and gave us good service. My steak sandwich was OK, the baget was very fresh. The upstairs is air conditioned but being it's not enclosed still pretty warm. Probably... More
