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.

Food was good, but the menu choices were few. Prices on high side. Our server was excellant and very friendly. Great outdoor atmosphere.

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

There were more waiters than customers but since the staff spent most of their time sitting at spare tables checking their 'phones I can understand why they needed more than was necessary for the 7 customers. I ordered the French onon soup which was only recognisable as such because there were the odd onion pieces (although they didn't taste of... More

(Stayed at Capt Oliver's hotel, right next door.) We went during off-season, so restaurant hours were significantly shorter than posted. Once we figured that out, we timed our meals to eat there almost every day! Super friendly service & freshly cooked food. And did I say the lemonade (limeade?) is excellent?
