    I celebrated my birthday at bamboo house, and it was fantastic! The view was stunning, adding magic to the evening. The service was warm and attentive, making us feel truly welcomed. And the food? Absolutely delicious! From start to finish, every dish was a culinary masterpiece. Overall, it was an unforgettable experience, and I highly recommend Bamboo housefor any special occasion. ---

    Excellent food, average cocktails not so worth the price. However it was extremely loud during music at the bar. At the dining area very hard to hold a conversation. It’s more a party atmosphere than a restaurant atmosphere. Good spot to eat and drink before a night out. Not somewhere for children/quiet atmosphere. Attentiveness from the wait staff is a bit slow. Instead of taking orders they are busy being part of the entertainment (swinging from ropes and hoops) Will I go back? Yes. Good sushi.

    Not sure why everyone likes this place so much. It must be because it's trendy to eat somewhere with a view. The view is really all they have going for them. They are over priced on everything, and I wouldn't call world/high class dining. I guess they can do this because they are in St. Marteen with a view. Be ready to walk a 1/4 mile up hill at 60 degree angle if you get there before shuttle starts, or pay 10 dollars to valet your car. The shuttle starts at 6pm from the carefor parking lot. Also, be ready to pay for your water after you hike uphill! 6 dollars to fill four 7 ounce glasses. Don't get a soda either, 3 dollars for the same glass that is mostly ice and doesn't have free refills. Ask for tap water. My son got the rib appetizer. While it was good, it came with only five small ribs for 16 dollars. My wife and I got some sushi, again they were good but nothing to write home about. We paid 22 and 24 dollars for each roll(that's between 7 and 8 dollars per piece). And could have paid 14 dollars per roll back in the States that taste better in my opinion. I got the whole char-grilled snapper. I wouldn't recommend it. It was dry and hard to eat as it's basically a whole fish on your plate, and you had to make sure you didn't eat a bone. Came with a rice blend for a side and a chilli sauce with a fancy name. Cost 30. Pay 13 dollars more and get a steak, or pay two dollars more and get the salmon. My wife got the salmon and said it was good(hard to mess up salmon though). We ordered cocktails that cost more than most of the appetizers. Again they were good but I wouldn't order them again. Our service wasn't the best either. Took forever to get our food and he only asked if he could refill our cocktails and no other drinks. I won't be going back. Go to Buccaneer Beach Bar. Easier to get to, drinks taste better and are half the price. Food is priced better and taste better in my opinion. Get a water view and live music. For 3 people. Bamboo=$196 BBB=$80

    This is my 5th trip to bamboo house. I called twice waiting for the shuttle and no one picked up the phone. As we had no opportunity to take the shuttle, we had to pay for valet parking, which I did not want. Secondly, I was very clear with my allergies (gluten & bell peppers)with the waiter before we ordered. There are very few gluten-free options on the menu so I ordered Pad Thai - according to the menu, there were no bell peppers. I reiterated my allergy and he indicated there were no bell peppers. When my dinner arrived, it was full of bell peppers. My dinner had to be remade and I was not able to eat with my family. For a restaurant of this caliber, it’s disappointing that they can’t manage allergies better and offer more gluten-free and healthy options. The Poké bowl is no longer on the menu. View is stunning however I’m not sure I’ll be eating there again.

    Our experience was dining with a party of 6. The ambiance is beautiful as well as the view. We had a reservation @ 5:45 to watch the sunset. We were greeted promptly and ordered cocktails which seemed to take longer than usual to receive, but the atmosphere made that no problem. We ordered two appetizers which came out promptly and were very good. The restaurant was quite busy but that didn't explain why 3 of the 6 meals were brought out and the other 3 took about another 15 mn. 2 of which were sushi. We all ordered after dinner drinks 4 of which were wine. We waited around 20 mn. when we finally got the attention of the waitress. The conclusion was the bar was understaffed for the amount of patrons. The same issue though with getting our tab. I would recommend going for a drink or aps @ the bar for the beautiful view but I wouldn't go back for a meal.

    Bamboo House is one of my favorite restaurants, not just on St Maarten but anywhere. The thoughtful presentation, wonderfully paired flavors, great service and entertainment really stand out - as does the spectacular views. They are also really great at trying to accommodate special requests. I highly recommend Bamboo House to anyone looking for a great time and great food!

    Our favorite restaurant on St Martin! The ambiance is amazing from its spacious outdoor mountainside setting overlooking Simpson Bay to the lighting used to create both a fun and intimate setting! On the night we went, there was also an amazing musician playing music and even going table side at different points to enhance the atmosphere all that much more - one of the best we have seen! The drinks were excellent and the food was the star of the show. The best chicken satay I have ever had! The sushi was very fresh and smooth to eat! The salmon I ordered had plenty of flavor and flaked perfectly! The wait staff was top notch and very attentive to our needs, and exceptionally personable. The only thing that was a challenge was getting up to the entrance with our rental car as the drive path is narrow and steep and only fits one car at a time so it took us till the third try and a bit of nerve to get up to the entrance when no one else was coming down. So maybe take the taxi to this one! But the effort was well worth the exceptional reward! We ranked all restaurants we went to in our 7 day trip to a combo of St BART and St Martin and this was number 1 for us!

    Thursday night provides a band with a $5.00 cover charge. Good serving size and tasty. Cost and value is relative for an unscale and great ambience. Make a reservation and ask for a table with shelter if rain is forecasted.

    Not your fault but we were seated outside. It rained twice. Our food was moved inside then we went back out then back in then back out. A bit frustrating! Then the person seating us said we should have had a different table. I guess they gave our original table to someone else.

    The atmosphere is amazing! The food and drinks are great! They put on a little dancing show during dinner which was entertaining. I would definitely recommend.
