Pricey but very delicious upscale restaurant. Very quiet and quaint. We've eaten there twice and have always been pleased!! You have to dress a little nicer for this place but it's worth it if you're the type that appreciates a fine meal while on vacation. We always splurge on at least one! This is definitely the place to do it!!... More

Really enjoyed my lunch and ambience of this lil restaurant tucked inside a passage of front street. Friendly wait staff. Took a little long to get our food, but it was good.

The food was well prepared and served with flair. The owner came by and talked about the food's preparation and made sure all was to our liking.

Visited Sheer on a May 2015 evening with colleagues attending a conference on Sint Maarten. It's located down a narrow side alley off the main road and is a hospitable establishment with helpful staff. It's clean and modern inside. We were treated to a buffet meal of grilled meats, pitta bread and humus. Good choice of wines, much more limited... More

Found this place thanks to a handful of reviews & we are so glad we did! The service and food were both phenomenal. We called ahead for a reservation - a good idea - they are sometimes closed for private parties. We arrived shortly before they opened, thinking that the bar might be open, but it wasn't. However, our waiter... More

This was our last dinner in St. Maarten on our trip. We noticed the good reviews and decided to try it. The restaurant was not busy and we were greeted by the quirky and friendly waiter. Dinner was excellent! We had the lobster, shrimp fettuccine, as sea bass entrées. The sea food melted in our mouths. The portions were perfect.... More

The title really says it all. The food was quite good. The location is great. The facility was very pleasant surprise. The service was pretty lax.
