Awesome location with nice amenities. The food was a little pricey, however the location was clean and comfortable. The drinks were well made, we were on a cruise so only stayed for about 4 hours.

Facilities are good but you pay for it. Overpriced food and drinks as and comes with attitude. Prices for chairs were higher also than others on the beach. Won't use them again.

Never expected a beachfront restaurant to serve food with real plates and silverware. We had dim sum, and mako salmon sushi rolls. Both were terrific.

On the recommendation of an acquaintance, my boyfriend and I went to the Kontiki Restaurant on Orient Bay. We walked up to the hostess podium where nobody was there to greet us. Several restaurant staffers walked past us as we stood there wondering if we were invisible. The place was by no means busy (almost empty). We finally got seated... More

Good place to relax and let the time pass... Isn't for snorkel... Nice service by nice and attractive french waiters... Not cheap (in fact St Marteen isn't cheap).. Good cocktails..

We enjoyed a relaxing lunch while sitting on the swings (they are attached to the beach bar.) The food was fresh and the drinks were great. Compared to other lunch spots the price was comparable as most places are pricey on the beach.

Having seen Kontiki over the years, we were pleasantly surprised at the lovely spot it has become. Very European bar and seating area. All white sofas and renovated dining spots. We didn't eat there because they still don't honor $1 - 1 Euro, but we just had to have a martini as the sun was setting. It was perfect!

We stopped here a couple of weeks ago at a trip over to Orient beach for the day. I didn't give it 5 stars only because we didn't try the food. They remodeled the place since I was here last year and it looks fantastic! Great place to hang out and have a few drinks. Next time i'll come earlier... More

We found this place on our first visit to the island and absolutely love it. We love to come enjoy the beach for a while and then dine at the restaurant. The food is outstanding here, we have had many memorable meals over the years. They do a great job with lobsters and all seafood.

We stumbled upon this beach bar while looking for a place to hang out for the day at Orient Beach. What a great find that it was! Aurelian was a great host from the minute we walked through the door. He got us set up with 2 comfortable loungers and an umbrella and 2 delicious rum punches. The food was... More
