Just a bit down the beach fro the Sonesta Great Bay Beach, Casino and Spa, this restaurant has amazing food and a spectacular view! The service is a bit confused at times, but nothing too bad.

Great Ambience, terrible management of the reservations, made a 7:30PM reservation 2 weeks ahead, didn't get sat for almost an hour, (clearly forgot us) after inquiring, we get sat in the back by the wait staff side station...by that point we asked to be moved! 2 hours later we finally got our food- not memorable! Over priced- mediocre food-would not... More

Had lunch the other day at Ocean Lounge which is attached to the Holland House Hotel and it was beyond amazing. The Seafood platter for two has to be one of the best seafood towers I have ever had or seen. Literally overflowing with 1 1/2 pound lobster, oysters, sushi grade tuna, shrimp, salmon, king crab legs, it is to... More

The service here was soon slow that I got up, after waiting 40 min for the appetizer to appear and went up to my room and retrieved my laptop. Caught up on my emails for 30 mins, served a so-so steak and 1/2 a lobster for wife and then gave up on the dessert we had ordered after another 30... More

Had the very good tuna sandwich, which is really a sushi grade raw tuna on slices of toasted french bread. Excellent! Not cheap eats, upper price, but worth the good meal. Service, however, was pretty bad. Asked four times for water, my wine suffered from Oxidation and was really bad, had to go up to the bar to change it... More

Asked a local where to have lunch. This was the place. Great view, good service, good food. I just had an appetizer of seafood. Others in party had hamburger, Cuban sandwich and a salad. Staff was friendly and attentive. Good sweet tea for us southerners.

I think it says something when a year later you encounter the same staff and they're just as personable as the first time around. That was my experience this past weekend. It was my second visit to St. Maarten and my second stay at the hotel with friends. We enjoyed the breakfast at The Ocean Lounge daily, dinner one evening,... More

We went twice to this place: once in late afternoon to get a drink and finger food, and one at the restaurant for dinner. 2 very different experiences. For the bar experience, it was extremely bad: very slow service; we ordered food and it was never delivered to us (when we asked the waitress said: oh but we have something... More

Wow - by far worst place we dined while in St. Maarten. Food just not good, service was terrible (waited 2 hrs for our dinner, 4 people), had a band playing that could be heard 2 blocks before we arrived at restaurant so almost unbearable while in restaurant. To make matters worse, there were 3 intoxicated women who kept singing... More
