This is a gem of a restaurant on the water. It is moderately priced with excellent Caribbean cuisine. The service was very friendly, attentive, had an eye for detail. They had just the right tempo and mix of attentiveness without being overbearing or annoying. The music was relaxing and soothing. The food was very well prepared and the presentations were flawless. This was such a great find that I went back during my four day stay. All the other restaurants in the area were okay, but this one was excellent.
What an absolutely excellent restaurant, the staff were more than accommodating, the plating and presentation of the food was superb and delicious. my wife had the vegetarian pasta with wine and garlic sauce and it was excellent, we had the roman caesar wedge, and I had the Kobe burger- one of the best burgers I have ever had- I'm sure everything on the menu is excellent but I was craving a burger and had to have one and was not disappointed.
We had an incredible dinner here, just spectacular. You can't go wrong with any of the food. Amazing! My boyfriend got the tomato soup as an appetizer and tuna for dinner incredible! I got the seafood pasta with lobster sauce also an amazing dish. Both of us ordered desserts as well which didn't disappoint, there was no food left. We sat outside, the staff was friendly and the ambiance was nice and relaxing. Great for couples, families, and groups.
Actually ate here twice in October. Expertly prepared fish with very friendly service. Both dinners were great. Plantain appetizer sounded out of my comfort zone, but was delish! Second night here I just let our server order for me, told her what we tried on our first visit and let her pick, great again! We will be back!
Just a short walk (or taxi ride) from the Dawn Beach Westin, Canoa is a charming restaurant well worth a visit or two in our case. The dockside setting is peaceful and quiet, open to the harbor and surrounding hillside. The restaurant is contemporary and inviting. Service was not only prompt but genuine. The restaurant has a fairly extensive wine list and reasonable island prices. Recommended appetizers would include the beef stuffed plantain and conch chowder both prepared to perfection. Entrees such as the stuffed grouper and seafood pasta received equally high marks for presentation and taste. A special thanks to Sherman and his staff!
On our first day on the island, another guest at our resort recommended Canoa and said "it's the best on the island." We thought we would try it. The atmosphere, service, food, and presentation exceeded our expectations! We enjoyed it so much, we went back a second time. Coming from a "foodie" hometown, Canoa rivaled some of our hometown favorites...
We visited Canoa this week and really enjoyed ourselves. The location on the dock makes for a peaceful and special experience. We had Caesar salad and soup for starters and two different fish dishes. Really nicely done Service was outstanding including the special martini that my wife requests. Thank you
Fabulous dining at moderate prices! Great ambience! Great, fresh foods! Accommodates food intolerances! Most friendly staff around! Worth the drive even if you are not in Oyster Bay! Make a reservation!
I have a timeshare at Oyster Bay Beach Resort. My sons and I went there last for Christmas 2015. This restaurant was one of the best I have ever eaten at for fresh seafood. Note, I used to live on the gulf coast of Florida. The prices are cheaper than Florida's gulf coast. The food and people are very nice. You do need to make reservations. Even though we didn't first time, they were accommodating and found us a table outside near the water. My oldest son does not like seafood, and he was amazed with the stuffed grouper, and other dishes he got. We ended up going 3 times in a week. Fabulous food.
It was an amazing surprise to find such a great restaurant just steps away from Oyster Bay Resort where we stayed. Loved everything about Canoa. The food is immaculately prepared and served with passion and pride. The restaurant is located at the marina and has seating inside or outside overlooking the bay. The sunset while enjoying dinner outside was gorgeous! We enjoyed dinner here 3 out of the 7 nights we were in St Martin. Chef Marten thank you for the wonderful experience!
