The last of my diner experiences from our honeymoon was at the Oualichi Restaurant in St. Maarten. Oualichi Resturant is located right on the boardwalk of St. Maarten. The restaurant faces the beach, and it’s completely open and airy. Your choices for seating are to sit in the sun outdoors or in the shade facing the beach. The beach bar restaurant is located on the boardwalk in Philipsburg St. You can nap on the beach or enjoy a nice ice-cold bucket of international beers. There is a beautiful view of the blue Caribbean ocean that will leave you breathless while you dine.
We stumbled upon the Oualichi Restaurant after we snorkeled and kayaked earlier in the day. We were both hungry, and the Oualichi team was amicable and welcoming. We decided it would be a fun place to dine.
Oualichi Restaurant Atmosphere: A
It’s hard not to rank the atmosphere an A. We were facing the beach, the weather was beautiful, and the staff was amiable. Out of all of the diners and restaurants I’ve been too, this was one of the best atmospheres and views.
Oualichi Restaurant Coffee: —
For the first time, I’m a very long time I did not order coffee. It was pretty hot, and I wasn’t in a coffee mood. I was dehydrated and needed water.
Oualichi Restaurant Food: A
As with many restaurants in the Caribbean, Oualichi Restaurant features a lot of seafood. Oualichi Restaurant is known for their pizza, salad, and tuna tartare. It also has a Caribbean flair. I had eaten a fair amount all day but wanted to try the Carribean salad. I’m so glad I did because it did not disappoint.
To say this was one of the best salads I’ve ever had would be an understatement. The Carribean salad consisted of greens, corn, an entire avocado, pineapple, melon, grapefruit, and a spicy like dressing. There was nothing that I didn’t like about the dressing. There was nothing I didn’t care for about the salad. I ended up eating the entire thing pretty easily.
Oualichi Restaurant Cost: $$$
The salad and water (they only use bottled water) was 21 dollars.
Overall thoughts/Would I come back to the Oualichi Restaurant (St. Maarten)?
Oualichi Restaurant (St. Maarten) was truly one of my favorite restaurants to date, and I wish I could come back every single day. Sadly my budget and private jet do not allow that…
