Our family of four had dinner here during our trip. Awesome was the word everyone used for their meals - which included a filet, shrimp curry, drunken ribs and a special beef curry. Our server, who I believe is one of the owners, was incredibly...hospitable and helpful. The restaurant has a certain "rustic/Caribbean" charm which adds to the experience and the smells coming out of the kitchen while you wait for your food are intoxicating. I had read on TA not to miss the carrot cake. We opted to share a chocolate brownie with ice cream while there but took a slice of carrot cake back to our hotel. Soo glad we did - it was, like everything else we had hear, AWESOME. Our only regret was that we didn't also take home a slice of the peanut butter cheesecake. This place is a "must visit" if you are on the Dutch side of St. Martin.More

Amazing restaurant! Food, drinks and service were all great! We got ribs, jerky chicken wrap and shrimp curry and everything was delicious. Very friendly staff and the owner as well! I would strongly recommend this restaurant!

These drunken ribs man....seriously...legendary. Meat falls off the bone, super tender and glazed with a very nice BBQ sauce. Friendly staff and good cocktails. Place tends to be busy so be prepared to wait a while for your food to arrive. But hey, you're in...the Caribbean, there's no hurry!More

Friendly service, the place was pretty busy, but we were seated immediately with no reservations on a Saturday evening at about 8pm. We ordered the spring roll appetizer with that fabulous dipping sauce! My husband got the ribs, they were fall off the bone as...usual and I got the filet cooked to perfection. Everything was perfect but nothing surprising there. We will be back for sure!More

We went here on a friend’s recommendation. Service was top notch, and the food….my guy had surf & turf (Fillet and shrimp), I had the drunken ribs. I don’t even like ribs and these were out of this world. The meat fell off the bone....Both meals were utterly delicious! As were the drinks (Coconut Mojito and passionfruit Caipirinha). Dessert was a brownie topped with vanilla ice cream…also outstanding. If you don’t eat here, you are missing out! We will def be back!More

We were warmly welcomed by the owner a Quebecoise who created her restaurant in Sint Maartin with her partner. Myself originately from Quebec it was beautiful to exchange on each others stories of how we got to the caribbeans. We had the indian chicken wrap...spiced to perfection and pulled pork (i reordered their sauce it was so delicious) with a beautiful colorful salad. We enjoyed the fun spirited ambiance sitting outside : everyone was in a great mood, laughing and grooving to the background music. Only being so full, held me back from enjoying one of the special coffee (ask for the coffee menu!) as a dessert, and kept it smooth with a great espresso. Thank you for the great evening !

Having written an earlier review in December I felt it important to let everyone know that CREDIT CARDS ARE NOW ACCEPTED. Having only one night here in St. Martin it was an easy decision to stay at Horny Toad and walk to dinner at The...Palms. Easy and wise. Most of the dinner offerings have some garlic, and I am allergic but that did not stop the staff from ensuring my dinner was garlic free. It was, and it was delicious. There is outdoor dining and the airy, semi open interior is comfortable for all, especially for those who might be Covid concerned. Thanks to the entire efficient, dedicated staff I now carry another happy memory from The Palms. Please note as well that they are not offering lunch at this time.More

It is to far to walk in a reasonably amount of time. I woul say about five miles over a couple of mountains. You can take a bus or cab to it.
