The place has a nice ambiance. We started with chips, salsa and guacamole.... it was excellent. Ordered pork and chicken enchiladas. They definitely tasted like Tex Mex style. We prefer more Sante Fe style. Jimbo came by the table and was very friendly. We had...More

Hadn't been in 7 years since last time on the island. Still great food drinks and staff. Was a happy surprise to hit happy hour too. Everything was good. Definitely a dinner stop while we're here. Thank you Jimbos.

Jimbo's is an amazing place, from the cleaners all the way up to Jimbo the owner : everyone makes you feel welcome , no better texmex on the Island and the bar selection is dangerous, bringing a designated driver is the best strategy

Very nice atmosphere. Menu has something for every pallet. Good food Mahi Quesadilla will melt in your mouth- very tender strips of Mahi cooked to perfection. Although some of the flavors were not quite what we may be used to, found them unique and appealing....More

Wrote a couple of emails as well so hoping I'm not overdoing it. We will be in St. Maarten on the Celebrity Equinox and want to dine there on Feb 16th at 7:00 or 7:30. Can I make a reservation and how do you suggest getting there from the ship. I see it's just a 15 min ride. Are their taxis?Would love to see Jimbo if he's around. We have pics with him from 1993 that he'll find amusing. Thanks, Linda Katz
