This large, white tableclothed restaurant at Oyster Pond is easy to find. The food is very good as are the drinks. Service was very good also. Shrimp served with rice and pumpkin was very tasty. The pumpkin provided a nice Caribbean touch.

We had a very nice lunch looking at the small harbor, just sandwiches and salads but perfect for an afternoon out of the sun.

Im not a buffet person, but, when, as part of the captian olivers regatta, sailors are invited at a discount to feast on this incredible buffet- i found myself savouring more smoked salmon and seafood than i believed could be available. Class. And you dont even feel like a glutton afterwards.

This was the first time my husband and I had dined at Captain Oliver's even though we have been coming to St. Martin for many years and had heard good things about the restaurant. We were staying in Oyster Pond and decided to dine there since it was so close. We went on a Friday night since they were advertising... More

While it was an ok stay, I would say you can do better in the Dawn Beach area than Captain Oliver's...like the Westin or Oyster Bay, which we really like

Heard good things about this place. Tried it out first night on the island and actually quite disappointed. The soups were excellent! But the entrées were not. I had the jerk chicken and it was a rubbery piece of chicken with a brownish sauce that was a tasted like mix of ketchup and Worcestshire. I would not recommend this place.

We leased a home for a week overlooking Oyster Pond and on our very first evening, we found Captain Oliver's for dinner. This is an open air restaurant, in a marina setting with great view of the water, boats and the hillside homes, where we were staying. One of the best things about St Maarten is the people who live... More

Casual restaurant overlooking the marina at Oyster Pond. The food was good and adequately priced. They do not serve breakfast.
