We had breakfast here and we tried dinner. It was really very well prepared and thoroughly enjoyed. The dishes we had were very good and we actually returned to dine there again. The dinner was very good that time as well.

Read all the good reviews and was looking forward to eating here. I definitely understand island time, but this service (or lack there of) was due to being understaffed. They did recognize the extremely long wait and gave me a cup of fruit which was nice. However when my omelette appeared it was burned to the point that it was... More

Bon Appetit has the best coffee in y opinion. Staff is friendly and the food is excellent. At dinner there is a singer to set the mood. If you have a huge appetite this is probably not the place for you although you can still enjoy their delicious dishes and then go for a midnight snack. Food presentation is great... More

We love this place. Great coffee and home made pastries in the morning. Wonderful food and service at night. Have to recommend the canabale pizza for meat lovers....it has everything. Very convenient to Simpson Bay Resort and Pelican Key. Good value, great service.

Across from the Flamingo Beach resort, it is good food. The fish is fresh and the sauce is very nice. The prices are pretty good, average for the island. Eating out is really nice, listen to who is playing, some are a little too loud to enjoy conversation, they change each night.

This is me and my family's go to restaurant in St. Maarten. The service is outstanding and the staff is very friendly and accommodating (especially Wally!). Their Eggs Benedict is amazing over a fresh croissant from their bakery, and be sure to order an extra croissant to soak up all of the hollandaise sauce! We typically went for breakfast and... More

Went to takeaway each morning for croissants, baguettes and turnovers. This allowed for exercise and "European" ambiance to outdoor breakfast in the villas - wonderful
