The capital of St. Maarten is known for its duty-free boutiques, but eclectic eateries also tempt tourists and locals alike. Many restaurants and bars line the popular Boardwalk, which runs alongside the town on the seaside. It is here you will encounter Ocean Lounge at Holland House Beach Hotel. Its sophisticated beachfront dining is complemented by a varied menu influenced by the flavors of Europe and the Caribbean. Get started with the tasty breakfast buffet, follow up with an a la carte lunch and round out the day with tastes of the old and new worlds.

Emilio’s restaurant takes its moniker — “Dine with history” — seriously. The atmosphere in this restored boiler house at Rockland Estate is one of tranquility, with cool breezes sweeping through its windows and doors. The menu of nouveau Caribbean flavors is the creation of Chef Sydney Prescod, who has a penchant for unexpected flavor combinations like white chocolate mashed potatoes and breadfruit balls.

Both the Dutch and French sides of St. Maarten / St. Martin offers a wide variety of dining options. Sint Maarten’s unique cuisine was created under European, African, Caribbean and Asian influences. From luxury candlelight dining to beach dinner with sunset, everything is possible on the island!
