We were pleasantly surprised that our friends took us to this restaurant. We ordered creole red snapper, creole combo, creole shrimp and garlic shrimp. All were scrumptious. The Johnny cake and the plantains were the best I've ever had. I can't forget the satisfying beans and rice. The salad was colorful, yet fresh. Even the salad dressing was homemade!! I... More

We have eaten here many times and never been disappointed. Conch chowder is the best I've ever had. Also conch and dumplings is fantastic. Great atmosphere and always some great conversations.

So glad we made the effort to make a reservation and go for dinner at Yvette's. Loved the friendly wait staff - especially the handsome young man with matching shirt to tablecloth! Very laid back but professional at the same time - for a restaurant within a home! I ordered the red snapper creole style, which was absolutely delicious! The... More

Have always wanted to visit and today we were passing this way, so we stopped for lunch. We were warmly greeted and shown to our table that was covered in a bright plaid cloth. The food was delicious and very reasonable, great service too. Cash only. We will definitely recommend and return!

After many years of SXM trips we finally got here and only wished we had sooner. Not easy to find but worth the effort. Everything about our meals from appetizer to desert was great. I has the chicken stew and loved it. Yvette's grandson is a charming young man. Recommended.

The food is great! I had oxtails and snapper in creole sauce. I always try to bring friends from Oyster Bay Resort to this restaurant. The food is great and affordable. I've been going to Yvette's since 2012. Keep up the good work of serving great food and keeping Yvette's memory alive!

The conch chowder & conch with peas & rice was excellent. My husband had the snapper. Then we got the oxtail to go. Found out that they only take cash so our driver had to take my husband to the ATM to get cash. Everything was great. We had the seafood platter as an appetizer which was conch, shrimp &... More
