    Calmos Cafe: dining and drinks on the beach in Grand Case

    by Irina80 Written Jul 15, 2008

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Grand Case stuffed with good but highly overpriced restaurants I managed to find a place where one can simply have drinks and watch sunset without having to spend a fortune on fois gras. The place is called Calmos cafe which is translated from French as Relaxing cafe. Indeed, the most relaxing place on the island! Best time to go is about an hour before sunset, watch the day turn into night and you get a lantern on your table and the sea splashes quitely at your feet...Ahhh!

    Favorite Dish: some kind of meatballs tapas, forgot the name. Delicious!

    Address: 40 Bd De Grand Case

    Directions: once in Grand Case just ask where it is

  • Le Soleil Restaurant: Great Food in a Cozy Setting

    by JonnyVT Updated May 29, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This wonderful little restaurant is located in Grand Case and the patio overlooks the beach and marina. There must have been only 8 tables and everyone seemed to enjoy the French "joie de vive" way of dining. Our dining experience spanned more than two hours and included a very lovely and reasonably price bottle of Bordeaux. The staff was friendly, hard working and even comical at times. It was a great meal to wrap up what was a fantastic little vacation.

    Favorite Dish: The whole menu looked very appetizing including the specials of the day. I enjoyed the sea scallops in a savory French herb sauce while my lady had a variation of bouillabaisse which consisted mostly of different types of fish, scallops, and mussels.

    Address: 60, Bd de Grand Case

    Firehouse Cafe: Looking for a Date?

    by jenn_d Written Apr 11, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the place to go if you want to meet a handsome fireman (I already have one!). The men stop here to sign the firefighter's guestbook and contribute a shirt to the wall. We had some drinks here and my hubby wrote a memorial to a coworker of his who died in the line of duty just days before we left on our trip.

    Big Fish: A Local's Favorite

    by jenn_d Written Apr 11, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I WISH I HAD A BETTER PICTURE! This place came highly recommended to us by a couple from the US who have lived on St. Martin for 15 years. It was actually in walking distance of our Villa in Oyster Pond right on the water facing the harbour. It is small and very hip inside. The wine list was fairly good and we enjoyed a French bottle of fume. We sat outside on the water and got bit by some hungry mosquitos.

    Favorite Dish: The crab stuffed mahi mahi was divine! It was served with potatoes and steamed veggies. I ordered a cesar salad to start and it was HUGE...it was also packed with garlic and it took nearly a day before my breath recovered! My husband had the coconut shrimp appetizer and said that it was the best thing he had eaten on our entire trip.

    Directions: Next door to the Oyster Pond Resort and in front of Mr. Busby's Beach Bar

    Blue *** Bar: Bad A$$ Ribs

    by jenn_d Written Apr 11, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Almost everyone in our group ordered the Bad A$$ ribs. I should 've taken an after picture of the pile of empty bones from everyone enjoyed them so much. The service was not so great, but that seems to be the case in most of the restaurants here. I ordered a cesar salad with shrimp and was very happy with it.

    Directions: On the boardwalk in the Great Bay where the cruise ships dock

    Mr. Busby's on the Beach: 75 cent beer!!

    by jenn_d Written Apr 11, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This hopping beach bar is located on the sand at Dawn Beach. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner but the highlight here is definitely the 75 cent Caribe beers served from 11-4 every day. Happy hour starts at 4 and beers are still an affordable $2.50. Otherwise the food here is marginal at best and will keep you satisfied while sitting on the beach.

    Favorite Dish: One item that I had for breakfast was particularily yummy. It was called a Johnny Cake and consisted of eggs, ham, and cheese fried in a local bread.

    Sunset Beach Bar: Calling all Karaoke Buffs and Topless Women!

    by Geisha_Girl Updated Sep 4, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Having just arrived and getting a feel for what the island had to offer, this Sunset Beach Bar was our very first stop to grab lunch and cold drinks.

    By day, the Sunset Beach Bar was the perfect location to view the exciting landings of the jumbo jets onto the airport runway.

    In fact, this seems to be the typical tourist activity, as the restaurant's sign even has the detailed schedules of all the major airline arrivals posted.

    If dining there, the food served is somewhat left to be desired (chicken dishes were pretty dry and the beef products were undercooked), but the drinks hit the spot.

    By night, the joint turns into an island hotspot---hosting Karaoke shows, bikini contests, and Ladies......toss off your top and you DRINK FOR FREE! (see pic insert)

    It's like Spring Break all year-round at the Sunset Beach Bar.....

    Favorite Dish: All the artery-clogging fried stuff was better than their grilled dishes!

    Directions: Located in Maho Beach

    The bar was much better than the grill The Lads hanging' with the local Pimp Daddy Arrivals Be Daring.....and Drunk???!!

    by destinycm Written Apr 11, 2007

    In Philipsburg... a short walk from the ship port. This is a quaint little French restaurant. The food was delicious, although pricey.

    It was very quaint and at one point my fiance and I were the only ones in the restaurant. He was able to ask me to dance with him to the authentic romantic French music they had playing.

    Excellent guavaberry daiquiri's... St. Maarten's specialty

    Favorite Dish: The Escargot of course!

    Saratoga: Romantic Quiet

    by misodiva Updated Apr 1, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Our hotel gave us a 10% off coupon and made our reservations. We went on Friday night and sat on the water front and it was quite and great lighting. Very romantic. The menu has several seafood options and one each of other meats. Not much for vegetarians. I had a salmon in phyllo dough and wild rice. He had salt and pepper whole fish, with basamanti rice and vegetables. Traditional foods with nice presentation.

    Sol e Luna: French Cuisine at a Hidden Place

    by CaribNomad Written Jun 12, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What a surprise, when you come to the quiet Mont Vernon neighborhood, and you step right away in gourmet paradise. Chef Christian very professionally prepares great French and Italian food. The setting is so exciting, so tropical, so Caribbean, and you are well taken care for by daughter Charlotte, who serves the food and beverages professionally.
    They also have several nice and stylish apts. to rent.

    Favorite Dish: Great sea food starters, main course lamb, or try the Filet Mignon, just anything will make you happy there, as it is great French cuisine in a wonderful setting.

    Address: Mont Vernon area on French side

    Directions: Drive off in direction of Cul de Sac, next right, and then after 1/2 mile, left side of the road.

    Guavaberry Factory: Distillery? Restaurant, no... Nourishment... YES

    by ATXtraveler Written Feb 14, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the most important places to visit in downtown Phillipsburg is the Guavaberry Emporium, where they are nice enough to give out free samples of the Guavaberry Daquiri or Coladas!

    I believe they gave me three free drinks, since I wanted to try each of their varieties... and it paid off, i ended up buying some of their liquor... so it all worked out. Make sure to get your free samples!!

    Favorite Dish: Guavaberry Coladas:

    Blend with ice until frothy - 2 oz. Sint Maarten Guavaberry Liqueur, 1 oz Cream of Coconut, 3 oz. Pineapple and fresh or canned chunks of fruit or juice. Garnish with pineapple, toasted coconut and grated nutmeg.

    Address: No. 8-10 Frontstreet, Philipsburg, Sint Maarten

    Kangaroo Court: A Cute Place for A Quick Bite

    by starship Updated Sep 14, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This cute little restaurant was recommended by the cruise line and I would have liked to try it, but we opted for "Every'ting Cool" because of its beach location. Here at Kangeroo Court, you can expect to find pasta, salads and sandwiches, frozen drinks gourmet coffees and Phillipsburg's only Expresso Bar!

    Address: Hendrikstraat St., Phillipsburg

    Directions: Near the Courthouse and main four corners of town.

    "Every'ting Cool": What a View!!

    by starship Updated Sep 14, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Location, location, location! The food here is not bad, and though somewhat expensive for what you get, the special thing about this restaurant is the beach view! When you first enter the small doorway (see in the accompanying picture) to "Every'ting Cool" you're not sure what to expect. But as you walk through the small corridor, you suddenly realize that the restaurant is really open air with tables and chairs outside on a series of small decks right on the beach! The bar area is really the only part that has an overhead cover. Try to catch one of the tables under the trees to protect yourself from the tropical sun. Usually there is some kind of musical entertainment which will certainly further enhance your excitement at being in the Caribbean!

    Favorite Dish: The burgers and fries here aren't gourmet but they're not bad either! Try the local Caribbean beer which are on the same order as some of the Mexican beers.

    Directions: Beachfront, Phillipsburg, just down from the Court House.

    Although catering to many locals, this dinner-like restaurand serves Jamaican dishes (the patties are to die for) AND amercian food like hambergurs and great breakfast.

    Friendly owners and service.

    Everything is mouth watering good.
