The last of my diner experiences from our honeymoon was at the Oualichi Restaurant in St. Maartin. Oualichi is located right on the boardwalk of St. Maartin. 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.
We stumbled upon Oualichi after we snorkeled and kayaked earlier in the day. We were both hungry and the staff was very friendly and welcoming. We decided it would be a fun place to dine.
It’s hard not to rank the atmosphere an A. We were facing the beach, the weather was beautiful and the staff was extremely friendly. Out of all of the diners and restaurants I’ve been too, this was one of the best atmospheres and views.
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.
As with many restaurants in the Caribbean, Oualichi features a lot of seafood. 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 avacado, 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.
The salad and water (they only use bottled water) was 21 dollars. It was completely worth it though.
Overall thoughts/would I come back?
Oualichi Restaurant 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 does not allow that…
Overall rating: A
