I have dined there on our last 2 cruises and the food is wonderful. They offer out door, covered dining with a great view of the beach and if you like to people watch, the Philipsburg Boardwalk is right in front of the dining area. There BBQ ribs have the best flavor that I have ever had and they have... More

While visiting St. Maarten, via cruise ship (that didn't offer quality Caribbean food), I learned about this shop from a local. She said it was the best spot on the island though it was a ways down. If I had seen her afterwards I would have tipped her for the suggestion. I ordered oxtails which came with rice and peas,... More

Caribbean Blend was recommended by a friend who lives on the island. The food here is delicious and filling. The owner is right there cooking for you on his outdoor cooking grills and is a friendly guy who has a good memoir of his past customer. Everything I've tried from the seafood to the BBQ meat is great. Service is... More

This was our second time visiting Caribbean Blend. Neither time disappointed us. We ordered wings and ribs snack plates and enjoyed both immensely. Nice portion of meat with a side salad that had a light tangy dressing. Got talking to the waitress and told her last year we got engaged in a cruise and after spending time in St. Marteen... More

Spent the day at Great bay and had a chance to eat at Caribbean Blend. Wow- great place for lunch and the 5 beers for $10 us can't be beat. The rent chairs and umbrellas for $15 for the day. Honestly some of the best ribs and chicken i have had on SXM. Great bay was awesome and the water... More

I ate here twice during my vacation to St. Maarten and St. Martin last week. The first time, my husband and I were walking along the beach in search of food when I spotted this quaint place. We arrived early in the afternoon. I ordered the lamb and a strawberry daiquiri. The lamb was tender and wonderfully seasoned. Troy was... More

Loved this place. Great service, incredible view of the beach, and wonderful food. The snack size was plenty of food. Wish we could find the jerk sauce they use. They will see us again.

Kinda like the corner cafe back home. Full meal for lunch. Located near the end of the Beach. Well worth the walk.Tried one of their frozen drinks while waiting for my chicken to cook on the grill. Not sure if that influenced me to buy a gold bracelet later. Love the food ,service and now frozen drinks.

Thank Kathleen H
