The sunset ceremony is sacred on Saint Martin. Not with your feet in the water but just above, on a pretty all-wood terrace held up by stilts on a rocky mountainside with stunning views of the Caribbean. The Sunset Café is the ideal spot to watch the sun disappear while sipping a cocktail in a cosy lounge atmosphere.
Whether you come for breakfast, lunch, cocktails or dinner, the food is always excellent. It is more like fast food than traditional cuisine; a plate of raw, breaded or grilled fish, for example, or perhaps snail fondue, or pork ribs marinated in barbecue sauce.
The cocktails are spectacular: they plunge you directly into the island experience and remind you that you are on holiday. Try the coconut punch, Planter's punch, Cuba Libre, Mojito, or mirto, a traditional drink made from a Caribbean berry, the guavaberry, all to be consumed in moderation, of course... And as soon as the sun disappears, the music takes over!
