Very good food, wide variety of prices, we shared a pizza very reasonably but specials were spendy.

We went to Le Piment twice for dinner and once for a late dessert/night cap. It's simply divine!! It was always busy but never a long wait. The service is great - very attentive. The owner has a passion for her food and it really shows when she personally delivers their nightly specials from the menu. We had the beef... More

Le Piment is located in The Plaza at Orient Bay. Tucked between Happy Days and Safari Grill, it is a true gem of a restaurant. Their daily specials are fresh, creative and never fail to delight. Their service is superb, especially from the hostess and part owner, Crystal. Her passion for fine cuisine is evident in the way she explains... More

My husband and I have been in Orient Bay for 8 days and tried this on day 6. This was our worst experience to date. His filet was ordered medium rare and was cooked well done. Service was extremely slow. They were very busy but had only one server (the owner) and an assistant to deliver food. We waited 20... More

Very good thin crust pepperoni pizza. The biggest problem is because France encourages everyone to smoke, you cannot get away from everyone around you smoking. Disgusting. But this was true of all the restuarants we ate at and the French attitude is if you do not like it, too bad.

My husband & I ate here the first night we were back on the island. I believe we ate here 3 times on our last trip. All great food experiences. The food is excellent - fresh - extremely flavorful - and the hostess/server is very friendly. Would definitely recommend trying it out!

We had a wonderful dinner here on our last night in St Maarten, food was unbelievable and well worth the 125.00 for two people. We also shared a bottle of wine.

This is one of the finest places to eat in all of St. Marteen. In the village of famous Orient Beach. With every repeat visit, this is often our first and last meal during our stay. Now had the filet several times and it is better than 90% of the best resturants in the states. The meal sides are fabulous,... More

My husband and I have been to St. Martin many times. We love to venture to Grand Case and enjoy all the 5 star food. However, on our most recent trip, we discovered Le Piment. It is world class. Best host and best chef across the island. So good, we ate there 3 times in 8 days. My husband is... More
