This place used to highly recommended. Now the food is simply average. Nothing special. During my last visit we ordered omelettes. What we got was edible and that is about it. I could probably whip up better omelettes at home (and I am not much of a cook). Each omelette was $10 US and came with 2 prices of baguette...... More

Last time my wife and I were in St. Martin 3 years ago we stopped here for breakfast and it was very good so we made sure that this trip we would stop again. They bring you a basket of assorted rolls before your meal and they are all very good. Ordered a scrambled egg breakfast and it was very... More

The food is not good , the place is not good, the hygiene of the place is terrible, the chairs and tables are terrible. Makes me wonder if going to... More

Horrible service, stale pastries, bland food. Ordered savory crepes; they were dry and taste of card board. Seemed like they were made in advance and just reheated. The service was extremely slow .

We've been having breakfast at Zee Best for 20 years. The staff is always cheerful, efficient, and friendly. Unique practice of placing a basket of delicious pastries on the table regardless of whatever you order. Of course you pay for what you take! My wife loves the almond croissants. Extensive interesting menu and whatever we order has been very good.... More

After too many fruity drinks, their savory ham and cheese omelet really hit the spot. Good service as well.

I was told by someone that Zee Best Restaurant was really, truly the best. So, we went for breakfast. My daughter and I ordered the french toast and it was made from croissant. It was a disgusting, wet mess. Neither of us could eat it; the texture alone was gross. My son had an average omelette. We would not go... More

They have a great breakfast and great pastries, waitresses were very good and very accommodating. We went to Cafe Atlantico a few days before this, it was rated much higher we didn't care for them at all. My wife and I felt this place was so much better, no comparison at all!
