As I have posted previously we went there just for the mountain of sizzling chocolate heaven, but while eating them a plate of fajitas went by and the smell was enough to bring us back. So the next night we returned for dinner. It was the last night Jimbo’s was open before he shut down for the hurricane session. We... More

Fourth trip to St. Maarten and once again ate dinner at Jimbo's. It was great. The nachos and salsa are great, food is perfect and service was good. Really neat restaurant and a must stop for dinner

We got seated fast, but it took the waitress a while to show up. She had a big party next to us and I am pretty understanding, so that was okay, although someone should have stepped in and helped. Got margaritas which were average. Ordered food which again was average or maybe a little better, but did not see the... More

I was not so sure about the place but tried and was pleasantly surprised! Well made dishes and a variety of choice for everyone. Great little place tucked back behind the stores near the boats! Water pools all around and palms swaying in the breeze! Wait staff very nice and efficient. Of course happy hour was enjoyed by all! Enjoyed... More

We have been having Christmas dinner at Jimbo's for the past 8 years. Unfortunately last night did not live up to previous years. We were greeted by a new hostess, who was not excited by our arrival. We were seated at our table, the hostess came back and asked for our drink order. Our waitress Barbara was very nice, to... More

Hey - sorry you guys...I know things were not up to par the other night - one of our pivotal staff persons (chef) did not turn up or call in...and that spells disaster for us and my staff were scrambling to make the best of a strenuous situation. We did manage to correct this and bring in another chef last... More

Great caribmex food in a very nice setting. The pool with swim up spot at the bar is a nice touch (we went for dinner so no one was in it at the time). Isn't a huge restaurant but with tables spread out over levels and around the pool, it has a good spacious feel. Food was really good. Ribs... More
