We visited Bavaria about 2 weeks ago. Who knew we would find this gem of a restaurant in Sint Maarten. We sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful evening. We all started with potato soup which was delicious. I had the sauerbraten with red cabbage which was out of this world. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Every time we are on the island it's a visit to this restaurant with our friends. We don't know how to pronounce some of the food on the menu but the waiters help us choose.

Authentic German restaurant in the heart of Simpson Bay, Sint Maarten. We came here on our third night of our stay and were very impressed by the quality of the food. Seating options inside and out, German beer and schnitzel made for a perfect evening.

We went here yesterday as we are a fan of German food. We were a little disappointed with the schnitzel, in Germany they are not deep fried like here. Other than that everything was perfect, friendly staff and owner. When we came home I was not feeling so wel, my body was sounding like dexters laboratory with all the bubbles... More

Dear Mr/Mrs Zhamotri I am awfully sorry for your bad feeling,but I find it a bit harsh to call it food poisoning since I use only fresh ingredients and never had that experience in 25 years. We also had a stomach bug going around the island which affected many friends and clients of mine.Sincerely More

Every year we come to get the schnitzel. It's a small restaurant but you can eat either inside or out. The owners are very pleasant and the restaurant is kept very clean. Many other things on the menu but we always get the same thing.

Bavaria is a small restaurant with seating outside as well as inside the restaurant. Our choice for the past 20 years has been their German food which is absolutely delicious and you do not leave the table hungry. As a matter of fact, there is food to be taken back to your rooms. In addition to their German food, there... More

It was funny to find a really German style restaurant in the heart of Simpson Bay. So we had to experience it :) as soon as entered we listened to music but Greek music (in German). It felt like we were in a restaurant in Greece and not in the Caribbean. Our salad was also Greek salad! Still really good... More

We have driven by this restaurant for 15 years and finally decided to try it. I'm German and love the food but don't really search it out in the islands. Lovely little restaurant with great pork schnitzel and sauerkraut. One person had rolled beef with red cabbage and another sauerbraten. Everything was excellent. My only disappointment was the lack of... More

I've been to Bavaria Restaurant a couple of times and the food is always great! I love the bratwurst, bratkartoffeln and sauerkraut. What makes this restaurant so different than the rest is the super friendly owner Annette. She is always smiling and in for a talk. The restaurant set up and the friendly service from Annette makes you feel you're... More

My wife and I ate here twice during a recent visit to St. Martin and really enjoyed it. The food and service were both very good, and the beer list was outstanding. It's very hard to find decent beer and St. Martin and the restaurant had a very good selection of German beers including Andechs Dunkle Dopplebock, a hard-to-find beer... More
