We were referred here by the staff at hotel. So glad we went. Now it is on our list of favorites. Attentive staff that know their menus. The lobster is the best on the island. Gift shop next door. Pool tables and a little entertainment. Would recommend to any one.

I was prepared to not like Pineapple Pete after our experience at Lee's (it's just down the street and has the same kind of storefront look to it) but we went there for lunch and I was pleasantly surprised. We started with the chicken wings and then I had the fish and chips and my other half had a cheeseburger.... More

Been going here for years but have not been back for 4 years but was not disappointed. The Lobster Thermador is always amazing as wells as Pablo's Pasta....fast and friendly service. A definite must in your St Maarten visit.

This was a repeat for me during my vacation, the servers quickly identified you as a repeat customer. They seemed happy to be at work, and were pleasant. All meals I had there were absolutely delicious, very affordable and served in a timely manner. Good staff+ good Food.

This place is beautiful to sit & eat if you're looking for shade from the hot Sint Maarten sun. If you're not paying attention you'll drive right by it (green sign outdoors). It a big open area, that has a large menu. We had the jerk chicken & shrimp pasta, with Guavaberry piña coladas & it was good. We saw... More

This restaurant came remcommended by a friend who had been there. She was not wrong. Very good food! Very good staff. no complaints at all. Except maybe the water view was limited. Not their fault. If we went back to St. Martin would definately stop in for dinner!

My husband and I both tried two different dishes. I did the gluten free pasta shrimp bruscheta and he did the spinach stuffed fish. They were both very tasty. However, the service was a little slow, but we have come to expect that in the Caribbean.

Visited restaurant whose signature dish is Lobster Thermidor. This meal is also my specialty for,special occasions so I considered myself a worthy critic. My husband requested no onion or pepper and all meals were prepared specifically to order. Lobster Thermidor was huge portion and absolutely delicious. Servers were attentive and efficient. There was casual ambiance and decor average. Overall, would... More

With our most recent vacation to Sint Maarten we visited Pineapple Pete's not once but twice! The food is consistently delicious and the ambiance, there is live music, at least on the weekend evenings, makes it a fun time at Simpson Bay! I don't eat meat, but I do eat seafood. One of my selections, the salmon lasagna, was not... More
