Top notch food and service. Ate there twice in 3 days. Met the owner today and couldn't be more accommodating. Will be back before we leave. Don't pay attention to the bad reviews. Some people are never satisfied.

Had dinner here the last night of our vacation. Host was very friendly and made the menu sound delicious. The mixed appetizer was ok... asked for grape leaves which were left off. Lamb chops were highly recommended but not really as amazing as they sounded. Although tasty, they were very small, thin and from New Zealand. The menu stated that... More

Had dinner here on the last night of our vacation. Wish we had found it earlier as we would have eaten here a few times. We love Mediterranean food and Al Pasha did not disappoint. Staff were friendly, service was quick, although it was early and the restaurant was quiet so not sure if the service is always so good... More

Had a great dinner at this restaurant. Loved everything we ordered. Appetizer platter with Tabouli, hummus, falafel and baba ganoush were excellent. The lamb shank and chicken kabob was so tender it was delicious..

We had two orders of lamb shawarma with salad and fries as sidings. It was very tasty. The salad was very delicious. The lamb was simply outstanding.

We've been to Simpson bay about 6 times now and Al Pasha never disappoints. The food is wonderful and good value. The owner is one of the nicest people I have met and always stops by for a chat. My favourite dish is the mixed kebab (and I really should try something else but it's too good). Try it, you... More

We made our first visit to Al Pasha this year after it was recommended to us. Being British Lebanese food isn't someone we would usually go for but we weren't disappointment. The food was absolutely delicious. We had the mixed kebabs and the rack of lamb. The kebabs came with a lot of meat and it was so juicy and... More

One of the best restaurants we visited in St Maarten. Bassem really made us feel welcome! The shish kabob was our favorite, along with the Tabouli salad. Save Wednesday for couscous! Love the t-shirts.

The food was very good and authentic There are not many authentic Lebanese restaurant out there!Remember Their new name now is AL PASHA not ALDYWAN any more look for their sign in their pictures album
