Arrived on the island and after unpacking headed straight to Mary's Boon and Tides. As usual the Caesar salad was delicious and the Martinis well shaken.

Located in Mary's Boon, the restaurant and bar had a good menu to choose from. My wife had the fresh fish special and I chose the Flank Steak as I was told the new Chef was Brazilian and that was his specialty. I was not disappointed.

The view from outside or inside dining is breathe taking. Breakfast, lunch or dinner is delicious . The staff is awesome & helps with any other questions besides dining.

The Tides was very nice. We ate right on the beach. Very comfortable and a very interesting menu. My wife really enjoyed the salmon and I had a chicken dish that was very good. A little harder to find but well worth the effort.

This may be better known as Mary Boon's...you can see the sign when driving from the airport and it is tucked away on the other side of the runway on the water. It was VERY windy the day we were there, but the views are wonderful and the food was great. The service seemed a little slow, but, hey, you... More

After reading in magazines how great this place was, we were anxious to try it since we were staying right there at Mary's Boon. You couldn't ask for a nicer view of Simpson Bay but the service is very very slow, the prices are very high and the food is just "okay". There are way better restaurants to eat at... More

We had a late lunch - unbelievable chicken wings and a great price on drink specials of the day (any colado or dacquiri). We also had breakfast which was average and the service at breakfast was pretty poor.
