This restaurant is a cool concept but was honestly too loud for us to enjoy ourselves. We only ordered an appetizer and drinks and decided to leave afterwards because it was just too much going on for me. I did enjoy the conch chowder however.

As a diver I have eaten my share of lobster. I thought I had. These guys cook the best lobster I have ever eaten. Absolutely outstanding. Heavy in the butter but you only live once. Gunter

Keeping in mind that I usually write about gourmet food and wouldn't normally do a review on this place and after reading some of the negative reviews felt that Cheri's deserved a mention. First visited last year after strolling the street and thought the layout...More

Went here one night for some entertainment. The drinks were ok but a bit pricey and we didn't eat. They do little shows with people that are eating/drinking there which was fun to watch.More

The drinks were good and so was the food. The entertainment was actually the best. They had different people dressed up as other people keeping the crowd coming and letting them get on the stage with them to enjoy themselves.

They have a very fun show that begins around 8pm (island time). My family had a ton of fun and will be returning when we return to the island.

Description
Located on the Dutch side of the friendly island of Sint Maarten in the center of Maho, Cheri's cafe opened in 1988 and has continued to grow in popularity ever since. 'A jewel within a jewel!'Music & live entertainment six nights a week with our very own 'Sweet Chocolate' band. Each night we try to surprise our guests with something different, whether it's Tina Turner, LuLu or Louis Armstrong or any of the many other characters that all add up to a fun night to remember at Cheri's Café.Dance beneath the stars at the most popular nightspot on the island, a lively and exciting venue for tourists & locals alike. If you haven't danced in a while, it will be hard to resist the live rhythmic dance beat here; or how about a romantic slow dance?We are known for our fun loving pleasant atmosphere, complimented by great food, honest prices and great entertainment.Our aim is to please you by increasing your happiness level while you are in our care. We care about our community as well as the 46 staff members. Our goal is customer satisfaction, we want you to have a fun time, together with great food! Enjoy!We look forward to welcoming you back again.Frommers ReviewAmerican expat Cheri Batson opened this cherished institution in 1988. The rare tourist trap that even appeals to locals, this great place to meet people is outfitted in an irrepressible color scheme of scarlet, hot pink, and white.Everybody from rock bands to movie stars, casino high rollers to beach bums makes a pit stop at this open-air pavilion.The surprisingly good, relatively cheap food (think burgers, steaks, pastas, and fresh fish) is a bonus, but most come for flirting and dancing to an assortment of live acts 6 nights a week.Don't miss such regulars as Sweet Chocolate Band, if only to watch the guys don wigs and falsies.
