Stopped in at this place several times during our last visit! A new menu every day, and hard to find specialties! Very casual, and friendly atmosphere, that get frequented by the locals who know the town.

My husband and I took a Caribbean cruise to visit the U.S. national park on St. John (it is a stunning park with lovely beaches, interesting plants and ruins of Danish sugar plantations). After the park visit, we traveled to Philipsburg, St. Martin. First we went yayaking and loved it. Afterward we were hungry so we took the bus to... More

Unbelievable oasis with outdoor shaded garden seating. Full bar with spectacular home cooking. Fresh veggies and fish as well as standard fare chicken and ribs. Local breakfast and sweets as well. Located next to Penny's. Very friendly and reasonable.

I had a fish dinner here while on our cruise ship stop at St Maarten. It was the best fish so far on our entire cruise! Nothing fancy here, just great fish!

Follow the locals and you are sure to get the best tasting food . Rustic joint . Great good . Must try the Ox Tail . If you are hungry and need lunch by 1100 better grab a snack and return . We checked twice and food arrived from off site preparation at 1230 but it was worth the wait... More

Whenever we visit St. Maarten, Sheika's was the perfect spot to grab lunch. I especially enjoyed their veggie options like the sweet potato and spinach pie. Unfortunately the taste and quality of the service in my opinion has declined, so we don't frequent there as much anymore. Really wish that they were able to be consistent with taste and service.

This is a nice local place with plenty of dishes to chose from. We have eaten here three times and it's been really good all of the times! One of the girls working there knows what is in the food which is good for me as I'm allergic to some things. It has been safe and super proffessional every time!... More

Had a stack of pancakes and the megamuffins. Both were great and very tasty. The banana which came with the pancakes was not for me but I am probably more used to the Cavendish bananas. The coffee is strong and I like that, but it might not be for everyone. Service was great!
