Excellent service

Great food, AMAZING service, probably the best restaurant in orient beach area. Plan on going back during our week in St. Martin. 4 stars instead of 5 only because it's a little pricey and although it's the best restaurant for miles, I have had better French food in the States. Wish I could give... read 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.

We ended up at Le Piment twice during our stay. We attempted to eat there one night but were told they were booked. We returned the next night (without reservations, which is risky) and we were able to be seated. The menu has many options we had a hard time choosing. We ended up eating there that night and the...

This is by far the best restaurant in Orient Bay! It is located in the town square and is only open for dinner. The food is simply amazing! Everything from pizza, salads, all the way to eclectic specials. You don't want to miss out. We usually eat there at least 3-5 times whenever we are in St. Martin. You could... More

we still Love going to this restaurant year after year. They have excellent staff and always put out a wonderful eating experience. it has become one of the most popular restaurants in the village, so you might want to reserve a table ahead of time.

From pizza to Dover Sole you can't make a bad choice. We have been here many times and have never been disappointed. If you go on a Friday evening there is live music in the courtyard and local vendors that make it a fun night.

We ate here 3 times in our recent stay ( and it would have been 4 times if not making the mistake of going to Little Italy, see separate review ). The menu is varied and thoughtful, the food is consistently very good to excellent, and the atmosphere is enjoyable, all the things you want when dining out. Overall, we... More

Great service. Great food. We wanted a break from French so we ordered salad and pizza. We had a mixed salad with egg and blue cheese that was excellent. Kids had pizza margaritas that was very good. We opted for artichoke heart pizza that was fantastic. Some of the best complimentary rum shots.
