We had dinner here one night of our two week stay. Food was okay. Atmosphere was not that great. Plays American music from the 1970s the entire time we were there. Right on the marina which was nice but the place was almost deserted. Nothing too exciting.

The restaurant was close to our hotel and it was recommended by our hotel staff. It was a good choice. It is located on the water in a harbor with reduced views. The atmosphere is pleasant, but the space is a little cramped. Food was tasty and nicely presented. We had only fish which was fresh and properly prepared. Service... More

I really like this place for it's location and lovely staff. We like going for cocktails (the rum-punch is delicious!) in the Iguana Bar at the end, very much recommended!! Also had lunch once and wasn't impressed. Food just wasn't good, mediocre at best and I didn't expect that for the prices they charge. All in all would recommend going... More

The food is good and the service is great. The place is in the harbour next to the hotel. When you order the mahi mahi it is great

Being in SXM for our wedding, we opted to have all 27 of us go out one night. This place was easily able to comply. Low key place on the water, seems better for happy hours. All the food was good, including several fresh fish choices, but nothing was exceptional. They definitely struggled a bit with the size of the... More

Good food, great location in Oyster Pond. We had a table on the edge of the dock which offered stunning views.

We found this little place on a marina on the French side of Oyster Pond. We stayed across the pond on the Dutch side. It was not very busy when we were there as it was off season. The wait staff was fantastic. The food was plentiful and very tasty!! The view of Oyster pond is very nice. We had... More
