Expensive with limited menu. Service staff is friendly. Much better options exist across the street. Wouldn't make extra effort to eat here only for the convenience is it worth it.

Stopped in looking for breakfast and found it in spades! I had the eggs benny and deb had the omelet with Johnny Cakes. Perfect! I forgot to add the sauce. Stop by. Even the coffee is good. Nice chairs, clean setting and decent cutlery.

very romantic, open to the beach and right on the sand, but also a limited menu, and quite pricey. not good for a picky eater.

We absolutely adore Candy & Tina the day time bartenders their service was outstanding we have made it a point to come and visit and eat breakfast with them every morning just to start our day! Candy especially made our trip and our 2 children trip even 20 times better with that Caribbean Vibe love,smile, and service she gave us... More

We stayed at the Royal Palm for one night in route to the French Side. Saturday morning we hd brealfast at the Cabana Restaurant. We had Johnny Cakes and shared the "Two Fer" I think it was called - pancakes, eggs, sausage, and bacon - and the best Bloody Mary we have had on Island. Great place for breakfast!

Great location but thats about it. Food is so-so- overly fried. Very limited menu. Ok for a burger lunch but not much more. This is NOT run by the hotel and they do not take room charges which means you have to carry funds with you even as a guest of hotel. Music was loud and some times not appropriate.... More

Cabana is attached to the Royal Palm Resort at Simpson Bay, St. Maarten. Yummy appetizers, (large shrimp) with a great Happy Hour, (2-6 PM) 2 for 1 drinks. Give them a try!

We were guests at the Diamond Royal Palm Resort. We enjoyed happy hour almost everyday. The drinks were the best! The service was excellent. Both fast and friendly. The prices were fair and the food portions generous. If you want to take it easy by the pool and enjoy refreshments, this is the spot.
