This place stay's busy but the food and people watching are outstanding. The service is very good considering Island Time. Remember folks your going to slow down.

Had a good dinner here! Plenty of staff on-hand, so the service was good and fast. They had live entertainment which gave it a nice touch.

One app, two entrees, a couple of beers, & dessert for $100 US. Lobster is the best I've ever had!! Service is not the fastest but they were busy and you are on an island so probably the best place to eat on the island for the $$$.

Enjoyed our dinner but not sure if I will return. It was good, but for the price, mosquitoes, and food being just good, not great, I don't see returning again in the future. Our crab stuffed shrimp appetizer and crab stuffed grouper were the best. I had the Lobster Thermidor which was just okay. Our guests had the crab cakes... More

I've eaten here twice this week, and the food and service were both good. Our group had salads or wraps, and everyone loved their food. One of us initially received the wrong item, because he wasn't clear when ordering. The server was very apologetic, offered to get the right item, offered a free dessert or drink, then removed his food... More

We always go to Pineapple Pete while in St. Maarten. As with other restaurants the quality differs from year to year....Not Pineapple Pete. We had two wonderful meals and as the pictures show, the owner was right on hand to entertain us. He is such a wonderful host and he makes you feel right at home. It was a very... More

We ate dinner here (2x) and enjoyed both meals. The lobster thermidor is the best and the jerk chicken (very spicy) but delicious. People are allowed to smoke in the restaurant which is not enjoyable while trying to eat but overall a great place for dinner.

So Pineapple Pete's was recommended by a number of people, including our hotel concierge, and let me tell you this place does not disappoint. We started out with the crab stuffed shrimp, and it was delicious, tender and lots of crab. My wife ordered the Ahi Tuna and it was some of the best tuna we have ever tasted. I... More
