Lagoonies Bistro & Bar

“Lagoonies is a local gem which combines delicate tastes of the French side with the fun-loving and friendly vibes of the Dutch side.”

Located on the edge of the Simpson Bay lagoon, Lagoonies bistro is accessible to all seafarers and land lovers. From sourcing local ingredients to brewing their beer, they strive for sustainability and are a strong supporter of the local community.
Lagoonies is run by a team of (mostly) women that make sure every detail of your dining and relaxing experience is top-notch.

Don’t be surprised if you visit more than once they’ll remember you! This is one reason why they have an extremely loyal, local clientele, which enjoy lunch every day and all gather for happy hour and music on Fridays when the week is done!

When the locals clock out, and the sailors docked at Lagoon Marina end their day – Lagoonies Happy Hour is the one thing on their mind!
Apart from the ever-popular happy hour, which serves $1 Heinekens and $2 Rum Punches, the food is what makes Lagoonies a must-do. Their menu changes daily and varies from Claire’s traditional French background to a more modern take on healthy living. Best shown by their Monday “No meat, no fish challenge.”

The venue starts to come alive, Wednesday to Saturday, with sweet melodies of acoustic music. From Rock to Jazz to Latin vibes, these nights often get much longer than expected!

Lagoonies is an intimate family-style venue and an authentic local experience, which all are welcome!  THE place to have a great meal, listen to a great band and watch the sunset over the lagoon while the children and dogs chase each other down the dock.

For their daily changing menu & to see which artist/band is playing, visit the Lagoonies Facebook.

by Susan on Lagoonies Bistro & Bar

Please do yourself a favor and check out their Friday latin nights! This was probably one of the funniest evenings we have, don't be shy to try some salsa, the guys will lead you and gosh they can dance! With great food, friendly service and super entertainment a must visit.
One side-note, it can be really busy and you might have to wait for the food, but strange enough it's worth sitting there and waiting. Being American we are just not used to it, but when you see how relax all the locals are drinking and just waiting 30 to 45 min for their food, you realize it has its charm 😉 Don't worry, about a thing...

by Roland SXM on Lagoonies Bistro & Bar

Had great times with friends at Lagoonies. Met lots of super nice people from all around but all friendly. Went back to eat several times as the menu changes and has many healthy food options which you don't see as much on SXM.
Overall great place, nice food and very attentive service from the girls and Marly!
