    The location and decor are fabulous. The food is very good. The service somewhat confusing, many waiters, the hostess mentioned when our plates were empty she would have somebody clear them…. The music is what spoiled it for me. It was loud, this lounge beat. Hard to have a normal conversation without raising your voice. The restaurant does not need that “enhancement” as all the other boxes tick great to excellent.

    A fantastic upscale spot for sushi with amazing views. Not on the water but great views of the island from the hillside. Impeccable service as well!

    Very nice views, good service, good food, drinks a few dollars more than I cared for. I was annoyed at paying a $5 parking fee for my 5:30 reservation. When asked I was told it is because there is a shuttle that starts at 6PM at the market below that is free. When you run a $150 bill for two, the parking fee puts a "bad taste" in your mouth

    One of the gems of the island. Go on Thursdays for the Gabsby Night and you’re in for a treat. Ambiance is like no other, view of the island, and very cool trendy vibe all around. Sushi is unbelievably good and decent cocktails too. Go if you have the chance.

    Would not recommend. Overstaffed, poorly run, un attentive staff and managers. Partners meal was horrible and when the waiter finally came 36 minutes later asked “ do you want more wine”. Never asked about the meal that wasn’t touched. Just a horrible experience. The best employees were the valet and the host.

    Excellent ambiance and views. Very friendly service. Food was ok but not the star of the show. Outdoor seating was lovely until the unexpected downpour of rain. There was no temporary covering so you had to basically pick up your plate and run to shelter.

    We were late for our reservation due to heavy rain and traffic but our shuttle driver waited for us so we could get to the restaurant. The rain moved all the outside diners in but the management did a wonderful job to accommodate everyone. The food was wonderful, well presented, but a bit pricey. The service was very good.

    The service was as imagined very well delivered. One thing I didn't like was not informing us of any local sint maarten customized menu before entering but rather after. That was unfair rest was all great.

    We got there at about 6pm and had a table right on the edge overlooking Cole Bay, the airport and Simpson Bay, views were amazing. The service was outstanding and the food was awesome! Will definitely try having lunch there as I imagine it would be fun to watch the planes during that time. It is a bit pricey but worth going there for a nice treat on occasion. Enjoy!

    No estaba buena la comida el arroz era un puré , no es la comida de Bambo de la última vez. La mesonera muy atenta pero estaba un poco perdida. El lugar espectacular pero la comida no estaba acorde con el precio. El sushi muy malo. Somos clientes de Bambo hace 10 años y antes se comía muy bien. Cambiaron el chef ?

    We arrived early and were seated at the front for a magnificent view. The host very friendly and welcoming. Our server (Kat) was friendly and helpful. She was attentive and everything arrived as we hoped. The food was great and we enjoyed wagyu beef dumplings and special rolls. It is a very chill and enjoyable setting and we loved it.
