After reading rave reviews on TripAdvisor, we HAD to eat at Le Pemint. It's open for dinner only. As several have mentioned, don't order from the regular menu. Wait for the daily specials which are listed on a chalkboard. We had two blackened ribeyes, one dinner salad, and four iced teas. I said "four" teas, because we each had a... More

If you want the real thing, cheese that is so fresh and gooey and olive oil that has taste and meats sliced so thinly you can see through them and mussels that are to die for, then eat here!

First off - the owner or server - not sure who she was - was wonderful. The way she described the dishes....wanted them all. We ended up with an assortment of beef, pasta at our table of 6. We shared a salad as a starter. It was HUgE - and wonderful. 3 of our pasta dishes were just a tad... More

We had a chef's special salad with nuts and fruit and goat cheese-- magnifique. We also shared an excellent pizza with spicy oil on the side. The restaurant's owner -- Crystelle -- is very nice and welcoming. Fantastic .

My wife and I make this our first nights stop for dinner each year that we visit St. Martin, AND once again we were not disappointed last evening. We were happily welcomed and the service was very good as was the food. I am reluctant to give five stars to a restaurant but this is as close as you can... More

This was our first visit to the island and on the first day our beach boy on coco beach recommended Le Piment to us for dinner. We have now gone three times! The specials are incredibly delicious! Christelle is wonderful and enthusiastic about the food. She goes through each item and explains it in detail. Each dish we've had failed... More

Year after year we travel back to St Maarten-St Martin and year after year we return to Le Piment. It really is our favourite restaurant at Orient Bay. Christelle is the most fabulous hostess. She never fails to remember us even though she may not have seen us for 12 to 14 months. Every dish at Le Piment is very... More

This is a must if you are staying in Orient Bay. Le Piment is only a 5 minute walk from L'hoste hotel.

Christelle is irresitable! She reaches out with a friendly welcome and a preview of the evening's specials. Her descriptions and enthusiasm make you feel so welcome. The entree's were as she described and a cullinary treat. I'm only sorry it was our final week on St Martin. We would have dined there again. And I cannot forget Magali. She was... More
