Front Street Cafe

Philipsburg | (721) 542-0342

Front Street Cafe, part of Great Bay Boardwalk, is located near the heart of Philipsburg. Perhaps you could guess that this place is best known for Mediterranean delights and particularly pizza, but we shouldn't forget they're also dubbed a hotspot for sandwiches. Wanting to invoke the the phrases "clean," "fresh," and "natural," the color scheme at Front Street is based around bright greens and steel silvers. The whole set up is quite modern, and the decor is sleek and industrial with a few whimsical touches like mirrors shaped like stars to soften it up a bit. Dining is available indoors on two floors, and out on the terrace, and all guests are welcome to use the free WiFi service.

The Waterfront Café & Pizzeria

Philipsburg | (721) 542-2446

The Waterfront Café & Pizzeria, on the premises of Sonesta Great Bay Beach Hotel, is located toward the western outskirts of Philipsburg, near Marigot. While more generally known for Mediterranean-inspired cuisine, this place serves up an awful lot of pasta and pizza. The Waterfront Cafe is a large terrace offering alfresco dining with a view of the ocean.

Azul Mediterranean Restaurant

(721) 545-3100

Positioned 0.8 miles south of Point Pirouette, Azul Mediterranean Restaurant is on the same premises as Sonesta Ocean Point. It's 1.6 miles west of Simpson Bay. Formal dining is the standard here, which means those travelers who want to indulge, celebrate, or simply experience Mediterranean prepared meals will want to check it out.

La Dolce Vita

Cole Bay | (721) 544-4311

La Dolce Vita, which is on the premises of Princess Port de Plaisance, is found near downtown Marigot; it's about three quarters of a mile (a little more than a kilometer) to the east of Simpson Bay. Head on over to Cole Bay if your busy day calls for a satisfying serving of pasta. La Dolce Vita offers guests all of the traditional Italian favorites, as well as a few lesser known entrees. In addition, La Dolce Vita puts in great effort in presenting vegetarian alternatives for those diners not wishing to eat meat, difficult for a cuisine known for meatballs and chicken entrees.

Paris Bistro

Maho Reef | (721) 545-5677

Set in Maho Reef, near Point Pirouette, Paris Bistro is a part of Maho Shopping Plaza, and is a good choice that's worth considering if you're thinking about visiting this neighborhood.
