I found this place while living on the island as a student, and everyone I have brought here since agrees - Little Jerusalem has amazing shawarma, and is a must-repeat destination. Amazing food, and the owners are awesome!

After a day of fun on the beach and hungry. We took a quick little walk on the street to this outdoor dining experience. The owners were working the counter and the kitchen at the restaurant. Super friendly. We were pleasantly surprised by the service and the food. I was a little apprehensive when ordering but not disappointed, Plate for... More

We walked up to the counter and asked what was good... the owner/chef said "let me just bring you something you will like" and he DID. it was amazing. A mixed plate full of meat (amazing seasonings, cheese... not sure what all else but oh my, it was yummy), salad, rice, hummus and potatoes. We shared that huge plate and... More

We had heard that we should try Little Jerusalen while in St. MAarten and so we did for our last supper meal tonight before we head home tomorrow. We walked in not knowing what we wanted and were reading the menu when the owner, Abrahem, asked us why we were reading the menu. We said that we had never been... More

Fantastic shwarma! We eat shwarma every few weeks at home, was absolutely delicious, generous portions, great price, lovely owners. Wish we had gone when we first arrived on the island so we could have gone back a second time before we left.

We have been taking vacations in St Martin for the last eight years and discovered Little Jerusalem three years ago. Not only is the schwarma Abraham serves the best on the island but it will match up with the quality and quantity we have had anywhere else in our travels. I highly recommend the sampler for two with a bottle... More

This is one of the best restaurants on the island. There is nothing to compare, unless you go to Israel! Small unassuming decor, but incredible food, friendly owner/server and unbelievable value. Note, they have a parking lot for customers next to the restaurant as you pull in to your right. Sat there for about an hour in the rain, and... More

Constantly on the hunt for amazing food wherever I go, stumbled upon Little Jerusalem, got the Schwarma with everything... The chef told me, "don't worry, I know exactly what you want, I take care of you". And he did. Firstly, while we were waiting the chef let us try some samples of new products and we chatted. Then the schwarma... More

This was the best meal I've had in St Maarten so far! Delicious, and a great value too. We had the Shwarma special for two, with a bottle of white wine, for $30 US. The owner/chef Abraham and his wife recommended it - and we loved it. He served up a platter , heaped with 2 kinds of shwarma (chicken... More
