Omg the vegetarian Falafel was to die for. My husband had the special and he said it was great. Abraham, the owner is a special person. This restaurant was fabulous.

My husband and I ate here and loved the shawarma platter. It is a family run place and father and daughter were working the night we were there. We were pretty late so they weren't busy and they took the time to talk to us...More

All around great meal again. Abe is so inviting and tries to make sure you are truly happy with what you order. The shwarma is to die for and extremely affordable. No need to go else where for shwarma when in Sint Maarten!

My first two years of coming to St. Maarten I am so upset that I did not stop at Little Jerusalem (aka Abraham's). When I came back to the island a few years later I finally opened my culinary senses and Abraham's did not disappoint....More
