This spot has a great location on the beach and the open seating is quite nice. The staff is helpful but slow and the food is average. We stopped for lunch and with very few people in the restaurant it took a very long time to get waited on and served. The food was just average and the ceviche tasted... More

Dropped in for a night cap at the zenith right on the beach in grande case on the island Sint Maarten. Rainbow bar that's open to everyone. The recommended house special was pretty tasty - a little like Canadian ice wine. Beach resort prices and friendly French staff.

After being in Grand Case for a few nights, we were looking for less of a formal restaurant and more of a causal setting. Zen It was just that place. The food was great! The setting was casual. The staff was friendly. And, the view off the deck of the water was beautiful and relaxing. We went back a few... More

We were at Zen It for lunch today. Next to a delicious tapas cheese plate we took a goat cheese salad. All tasted very good. Nice place on the Terra's, right at the ocean. The staff was friendly and helpful

We thought we would go to this for a different night--not fine dining but beach view and a bar vibe. We saw they had mussels on the menu so stopped in. We seated ourselves as no one came to do that. We waited and tried to make eye contact with any of the workers for half an hour. No one... More
