St Maarten / St Martin: An Award Winning Cuisine

An award winning cuisine.

A uniquely binational character and well over 100 cultures have brought a wide array of culinary tastes to St Maarten / St Martin. It is even said St Maarten / St Martin holds a record of restaurants given its limited surface. Just some of the tastes represented by St Maarten’s restaurant offer are Caribbean & Creole, French, Dutch, Surinamese, Japanese , Indian, Chinese, Italian, North- American, Spanish, Dominican, Lebanese, Breton, Indonesian, Mexican and Vietnamese. Of course, combined menus of these culinary dimensions as well as fusion kitchens are also to your availability.

Whatever you do – don’t leave before you enjoyed a delicious Johnny Cake or an authentic seafood menu!

It is not for nothing that we as St Maarten Hospitality & Trade Association stand proud of having launched the most decorated culinary team in St Maarten history to the region wide contest in Miami in 2017.
