$20.00 prix fix
We have passed this unassuming restaurant many times on our way to Mario's and Altro restaurants.
Rendezvous Lounge is the first restaurant on the right side of Puerto Cupecoy marina that you will encounter after leaving the secured parking lot.
Probably was not expecting much as it looks very casual with the ice cream statue out front.
We overheard our pool friends telling people about thier meal at the R Lounge and was interested to find out for my self.
After 12 days on the island my wife's only critera for dinner was tuna tar tar.
Reasearched the R Loung menu to find that they not only offer tuna tar tar but also a happy hour from 5 - 7 PM.
Took a quick shower that only man can take and was out of Maho and parked in Porto Cupecoy in about 5 minutes.
We were greeted warmly by Patricia and seated under a large umbrella over looking the courtyard and marina.
After a couple of happy hour mojitos we persued the menu along with a $20.00 set menu.
Off the regular menu we ordered two tuna tar tars. Glad we ordered two as i know my wife would be reluctant to share. We joked with the staff that Rainbow had our favorite tar tar but that they were closed for vacation. They ensured us that we would forget about them and had faith in thiers.
The large glass snifter was filled with some lettuce and avocado on the bottom then topped with rough chopped cubes of pristine tuna. We won't forget about Rainbow as that is our favorite beach lunch haunt, but we now have a new favorite tar tar for diner.
There were plenty of nice looking choices on the regular menu, but we decided to order off the 3 course $20.00 set menu.
Offerings included potatoe skins, a salad and eggplant rolled with pasta inside.
We orderd a salad and eggplant only two be recommended to have two eggplant.
The recommendation was as good as the eggplant with a topping of the side of grated cheese that was delivered with the bread.
Entrees included a thin but juicey cut of beef similiar to a flank steak served with the traditional pommes de tere (french fries).
The pork tenderloin was just a bit overcooked but had a nice cumin spice and benefiited with the side of sauce served.
Portions were good and since we already had enjoyed two apppertizers, we wrapped our leftovers for a delicious lunch.
A scoop of gelato or a single expresso is offered to end the evening.
Service from Patricia and co server was attentive but most important inviting and helpful in menu choices.
There is word that the condos of the area are going to be changed to a hotel.
The nearby casino (smaller Starz) was nice to us and paid for half the meal. We hit for 5,768. It's a same we were on a 2 cent machine. Still not bad to win over $140.00 on a 50 cents bet.
Porto Cupecoy has many good options for different types of dinnig and the patrons are benefitting with low pricing in the off season.https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUse..._Sint_Maarten_St_Martin_St_Maarten.html#
