We read about this place online and heard that there is live music and it's the happening place. Well...we ate lunch there and we were 1 of 4 tables in the entire restaurant. Nothing going on at all. Very hot with only a few fans working. Food was decent but VERY expensive. Lunch for two adults, wings with fries and... More

Heard people talking about this place at the hotel so we gave it a try. Glad we did, as the food was very tasty, the service was pleasant, and the prices were agreeable. Would definitely recommend for those visiting the island.

We enjoyed a delicious meal. We had the BIG burger, thin but tasty and juicy. And we enjoyed ribeye and fishsoup. So different choices for different people possible. Staff was very friendly and the ambiance was good even in quiet september.

We took some local friends for dinner here and it was a great evening! The drinks and food were delicious, We had great appetizers and The Crab Stuffed Shrimp, Ribs, were fantastic. Prices were reasonable and the live music created a great atmosphere.

We ate here on a last minute whim for lunch. Service was prompt and friendly. As we had been shopping I wanted to wash my hands and was directed to a onesy by the pool tables. There was no soap or paper towels, which is unacceptable. There are daily lunch specials. I ordered the shrimp in rose' sauce over penne... More

We had a very good dinner at Pineapple Pete. My husband had the crab stuffed grouper and I had the spinach and Parmesan encrusted grouper and both were amazing. My brother had the blackened Mahi Mahi and said it was terrific.

This was our last eating spot on our recent trip to St. Maarten, and was recommended by the hotel staff. It did not disappoint. The food was plentiful, especially the French bread and butter they bring as a starter. Among the five of us, there was a fish wrap, crab cakes, coconut shrimp, seafood linguini (which was a huge serving!),... More

We arrived super hungry & it just seemed like it took forever to get our food. There were 4 of us and two meals were great & the other two ( which were the same were just ok) soo maybe just an off nite & plate!

Food was good, took a while for the server to warm up to us...we were there in September when it was quite hot and humid, the dining area was quite warm...light live music in the background made the evening enjoyable.

We were referred here by the staff at hotel. So glad we went. Now it is on our list of favorites. Attentive staff that know their menus. The lobster is the best on the island. Gift shop next door. Pool tables and a little entertainment. Would recommend to any one.
