You are correct. As an owner that is what we were told. We won't see it for ourselves until February.

Yes, the Mexican restaurant is there, and after that, it was El Gaucho, I think. The Stone was further down the Marina than that.

We ate at La Petrona in March. Breakfast buffet (freebie for attending the owner's update and Dinner one night. Both were very nice, though I would not call it "authentic" Mexican as promoted. The new bar was being built out in March and is where the Stone was and the spaces adjacent to it.

Friends had breakfast at LaPatrona and indicated it was one of the best on the island. I guess it is "different" Mexican than most are accustomed to.

I don't know whether we will get there this time, but I personally am very interested in checking out the Mexican Restaurant. It is a new concept for SXM. The sports bar there is possibly where The Stone used to be?




If I recall correctly, in the early 90's (our first trip was in 93) there was a Mexican restaurant on the road behind the runway on the was to Mary's Boon. Think it was in the same building where the infamous Banda Bing is. For the life of me, I can't remember the name, but I do remember eating there.

I recall the place you're talking about, but can't think of the name now.

With regard to my previous post, to clarify, the new restaurant at SBR is more AUTHENIC Mexican, versus American Mexican food, which is totally different.

Here are pictures posted by SBR http://www.simpsonbayresortnews.com/simpson-bay-resort/replay-sports-pub-opening-day/

It is in the same strip as the Stone but I believe to the left (facing the building) I think it was where they they had the short lived gelato shop. I am actually quite impressed what they have done with the layout of the "marina".

We enjoyed La Patrona last week, the food and the service was very good,


this thread caught my eye so I checked out the menu. do they really only have ceviche on the lunch menus? the lunch menu seems more islandy to me. for those who have been there, what do you say? thank you. (lack of plantain was a bit surprising)
