We LOVE this restaurant! Gregg and Jo are so friendly and the food is outstanding! My favorite entree is garlic shrimp with rice and beans. Jo’s carrot cake is THE BEST!!! Gregg regularly makes new and exciting cheesecakes and they are always WONDERFUL!!! Top that all off with wonderful martinis and other fun drinks

Wow! Don’t walk..RUN to this place. A must stop while visiting. This place is absolutely awesome. Food was excellent and service was amazing. We went on a Monday night and during Covid. Obviously slower than usual but it worked out in our favor. We got the chance to speak with Greg the chef for a long time. He was SO incredibly friendly and extremely helpful in terms of telling us about the island...where to go and what to see. Seems like a guy who I’d hang out with quite a bit if I lived on the island.

As far as consumption goes..first, do yourself a favor and start off with the passion fruit caipirinha. It’s OFF THE CHARTS. What a tasty cocktail Jo made for us (also SUPER friendly BTW!) ! For my main dish I had the veal special with mushroom sauce. Simply amazing....SO GOOD. My wife had the chicken with the same mushroom sauce and she RAVED about it and she hates mushrooms! Go figure. For dessert we shared Greg’s homemade cheesecake with cherry compote. Another winner! A+.
No BS...I never ever write reviews. In fact I think this may be my first one I’ve written... ever. Can’t say enough about this place and I’m one of those picky foodies who complains about everything.
Seriously...go to this restaurant. You will NOT be disappointed.

Hungry, tired, travel weary we asked the owners of The Horny Toad where we were staying where to walk for dinner. "Just down the road to The Palms." Sure, right, I just wanted to be pampered and indulged and figured anything we could walk to just wouldn't meet my needs! I was WRONG......happily.

Sitting outdoors comfortably in a somewhat eclectic setting we were pampered, indulged, treated as if we were special by the entire staff. The menu was varied and my garlic allergy was easily accommodated. We relaxed and ate and drank and unwound and walked "home" totally satisfied.

Because our St. Martin stay was brief we never had an opportunity to return but we absolutely would do it again. Chef/owner Greg was a delight, obviously well trained, relaxed yet professional and we throughly enjoyed our conversations with him.

Thanks for the royal treatment, dinner, soothing our weary bodies.
