We made reservation based on Friday night entertainment but they were just renegotiating to get there entertainment for the season. Since they had a new menu and cook we decided to stay even though we were looking forward to some dancing by the pool like last visit. Jean set up a nice table for us by the pool but that... More

Dear Pinn, So sorry you had a long wait for drinks and dessert ( especially since dessert is to die for), when did you come? We re-opened the restaurant the middle of October, and the reviews so far have been great. I do believe in second chances; maybe that night was extremely busy, so hopefully you will try us out...

My husband and I agree this is our favorite restaurant in St. Maarten. Excellent food, service, ambiance. So much so that we had our 40th anniversary vow renewal there. The staff at LaVista Resort where the event as held could not have been nicer. Janella, one of the managers, put us in touch with event planner Nadia Chirlias of Prestigedzyne... More

This restaurant we have eaten in before, usually for lunch. Last night we went for dinner. My husband had the duck and I had the best grilled grouper I have ever had. It was in a lobster sauce, The vegetable medley it was served with was perfect. Kudos to the new chef. And the price was fair.

We loved it! We walked past the Hideaway one evening and decided to give it a try. Best decision we made all day! The food was delicious & beautifully presented. Nice relaxing atmosphere overlooking an infinity pool. It is tucked away in La Vista Hotel but is definitely worth looking for! Will be back!

My wife and I went back to verify the excellent quality of food and service we had eight days ago. We were not disappointed with either. We started with appetizers of bruschetta and Jumbo Chili Shrimp. Both were excellent in presentation and taste. While my wife wanted to see if her spaghetti carbonara would be replicated, I chose the Royal... More

Our first time dining at The Hideaway, and my husband chose it for his birthday dinner. It made for a wonderful evening! Our waiter, Omar, was perfectly attentive, and the food was fabulous. Steve ordered the bruschetta for his appetizer -- delicious! He had the rack of lamb for his main course and pronounced it to be spectacular. He sacrificed... More

We have traveled to St Maarten every year for the past 10+ years and the Hideaway restaurant had been consistently awesome. The service from the waiters has always been outstanding especially from Neville N. Brown. Wonderfully relaxing atmosphere . If you go to St Maarten don't miss this restaurant.

They make a lime sauce on different fish that is just to live for! It overlooks a great pool. (You don't see the ocean once the sun goes down.) They have a live singer on some evenings that plays nice dinner music. Recommend this for a great couples dinner or private family dinner.
