Great food. Great experience

Four off us dined here with four different entrees. We all raved about each of them. Don't bother ordering off the menu. Order off the specials board. Don't be in a hurry. Both our meals here lasted over 2 hours each. Savor the food, the setting and the people you dine with. This restaurant... read more

We ate at Le Piment twice during our recent trip to St Martin. Reservations are a must! This place is very popular and gets high reviews on trip advisor, which is why we booked it for 2 evenings. Crystal is quite the hostess and goes over the menu with enticing descriptions. I had the salmon pasta and Crystal surprised my... More

The food is always amazing. You can count on Crystal and her staff always welcoming you like family and remembering what you love to eat. We also had Christmas dinner and New Year's Eve here and the special menu selections were amazing.

Arrived for our 730 reservation and had to wait 20 minutes to be seated . Waiter was rude and slow and inattentive. By 9:25 all we had received was a drink and small basket if bread. We asked the manager how much longer for our food and she finally admitted at least 2o-30 more minutes so we left. Sad as... More

We visit Le Piment every year when we go to St. Martin. It is usually crowded for a reason. The food is excellent. Crystal, who I believe is the owner or manager, is very friendly and works just hard as her staff. The food is reasonably priced, with a wide variety from pizza, salads, and full meals. Having a full... More

In a place where fantastic food is around every corner, La Piment stands out! We eat there multiple times every year that we visit Orient Beach. They have a large menu selection and the process are very fair for the area. Not sure what to have?? Try their seafood pizza!!!

We stopped in for pizzas later one night, and had a couple of really tasty pies - one red and one white. So nice to try some pizzas so different than those back home in the USA. The staff was very friendly and efficient. Will come back again.

This place is very good. Bar is separate from the restaurant which I kind of like. Friendly staff, they seem to enjoy what they do. We have been here a few times this past week.
