Definitely the best food in Sint Maartin! Me and my wife eat there 2 to 3 times per week, the roti shawarma is very good, also the falafel is amazing, and the home made humus is so fresh and tasty!

We actually came back everyday during our trip because the food was sooooo delicious....Also the owner had such a great light about him....It's safe to say that I look forward to returning to St. Maarten just to go back to Little Jerusalem.

Maybe we hit this place on a slow day, but based on the reviews we were expecting something amazing. We are one vegan and one vegetarian so it seemed perfect. We ordered falafel houmous, and held the sauce (I enquired if it was vegan, as another reviewer raved about how helpful they were, and my question was just ignored). I... More

We went to Liitle Jerusalem last night with another couple. The food was awesome. Abraham and his wife are very friendly. Our friends had never eaten shawarma before and very happy with the taste, quality, and amount of food they received. Prices are reasonable. We always go here at least twice during our stay in St Maarten.

Friends took us here upon arrival (no lunch on the flight). Best way to enjoy is just let him make something for you. It was outstanding, not your average stop.

A little piece of Heaven on Earth! Affordable, delicious, with the friendliest service on the entire island. We eat there @ least once a week!

Food was excellent, so happy to eat there, had been craving their food. We visit Little Jerusalem several times while visiting. Take our friends and family there each time they visit. SportChic should stop traveling now if he thinks 38 US dollars is expensive for what he had.

Best value in SXM, Fantastic food and an owner that takes pride in his work. SportChic $38 for four drinks sounds about right on this island, that price sounds like a bargain. If eating outside is not your thing so be it. If your looking for fun experience and great food this the first place to stop!

First time for lunch, not sure of menu so friendly owners suggested their "best" for us. It was delicious, fun place to eat, great find for first time SMX visitors and will go back before we leave. Price was reasonable and portion generous!

First of, the food was good but not worth 38 US for a pita, salad, 2 wines and 2 beers. He was friendly but he insisted on taking our order and serving us a "surprise". Like I said, the surprise tasted great but for the atmosphere (outdoor/slumpy and we got bitten viciously by mosquitos), he charged us 38 which did... More
