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.

We've been going to St.Maarten for 30 yrs. Cheri's is a staple there, however I truly don't think the "show" has changed in all that time, the entertainment and their line up of songs are the same, each night. The food is "ok" however the...More

The food is excellent and the portions are huge, but most people come for the show. It's hoakie as can be, but it only takes one drink for most people to get in the spirit of things. A very fun place to eat.

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.
