I'll put in on my agenda for this Friday. Wow! Tomorrow already! Some of the folks at the Yacht Club head over there. Speaking of interesting places I went over to Rembrandt's Cafe the other day. Hadn't been there for over 20 years since before the hurricane that wiped out Dawn Beach. Nice place with lots of atmosphere and now a nice pool table.

In conversation with owner, I asked how long had they been there. She said, 22 years.




Bavaria is the oldest restaurant still in business on the Dutch side. Marty's is second. That says a lot about both places!

Would have to be longer than 22 years - certain Rancho and Chesterfilds around more than 25 years maybe others that might come to mind or might not -lol

Bavaria -so many great German beers....

I don't know about the 22 years, but I do know that that the owner, whose name escapes me now, told us that their restaurant was the oldest on the Dutch side, and Marty confirmed that, saying his was the second-oldest. Not sure when either first opened.

Annette (from what I recall) is the female half of the ownership. I thought slightly more than 22 years also as I thought she told me 23 years 2-3 years ago.

I know it took me 20+ years to try them. Took some SXM veterans there this year and they enjoyed their first visit also.

L'Escargot Restaurant is more than 40 years old. I doubt if either of the prior named establishments approach that age. But, does it really matter, all are fine establishments.

Perhaps the other references are in regard to being in Simpson Bay and not the entire Dutch side?

Georgia,

I'm going to chime in on this one also. I believe there are many restaurants older than the two you've cited.

We've been going to Marks since the 80's as well as Pasanggrahan Restaurant and definitely Antoine's and these are but a few that would be well over the 22 year mark.

Respectfully,

Our first visit to SXM was in 1993. Stayed at Pelican and would bet that it was there then. We drove by it often enough. Can't believe that the first time we went there was 2014. Seems like lots of people have made the same mistake!!
