Located on the Dutch side of the friendly island of Sint Maarten in the center of Maho, Cheri's cafe opened in 1988 and has continued to grow in popularity ever since. 'A jewel within a jewel!'

Music & live entertainment six nights a week with our very own 'Sweet Chocolate' band. Each night we try to surprise our guests with something different, whether it's Tina Turner, LuLu or Louis Armstrong or any of the many other characters that all add up to a fun night to remember at Cheri's Café.

Frommers Review

American expat Cheri Batson opened this cherished institution in 1988. The rare tourist trap that even appeals to locals, this great place to meet people is outfitted in an irrepressible color scheme of scarlet, hot pink, and white.

Everybody from rock bands to movie stars, casino high rollers to beach bums makes a pit stop at this open-air pavilion.

The surprisingly good, relatively cheap food (think burgers, steaks, pastas, and fresh fish) is a bonus, but most come for flirting and dancing to an assortment of live acts 6 nights a week.

Don't miss such regulars as Sweet Chocolate Band, if only to watch the guys don wigs and falsies.
