    Our waiter Danny was great. He provided outstanding service and was friendly and courteous. We had some great conversations while he made our evening special. Chef prepared a special dish we requested and the rest of our selections were absolutely delicious. We thought we were back in Mazatlan. We are bringing friends when they arrive in Sint Maarten next week!

    We are Simpson Bay Resort timeshare owners and decided to try La Patrona. We enjoyed the meal and the Friday night 2 for 1 drink specials. The spicy margaritas was excellent. Service is excellent. Had the red snapper Yucatecan style and Mayan Tomahawk Pork, both were very good. I would go back!

    Il s’agit d’un restaurant de resort. Pour un restaurant mexicain, tout manquait de goût! Un petit resto local aurait sans aucun doute été supérieur à tous les points ( ambiance, saveur, prix … )

    Excellent brunch buffet for Christmas day. Very varied, healthy options as well as the traditional ham, turkey and steak. Even though the restaurant was fully booked, it didn't feel crowded. Had a lovely time right by the sea.

    Service/server (mickiel) was very good. Food was a bit salty. White glass was too heavy. Pineapple drink tasted like dole from the can. Overall the staff is very friendly and accommodating. Always a decent place to eat.
