Great restaurant at the beaautiful Beach of Oriënt Bay! Fresh modern dishes, salads. Good friendly staff. Beautiful setting right at the beach. Friendly staff. Busy in a good admoshere. Loved going there. Nice drinks too. You can even order your food when you are laying on your rented beachchair! When you are at Oriënt Bay, you have to go here!

If you're staying on the island and love the French food, this is a beach spot worth the stop. Granted it's Orient Beach, where you might be besieged by cruise ship people, but the dining experience is still worth it. Daily lunch specials are reasonably priced and service is excellent. We have never had a bad eating experience here, in... More

Food comes quickly, service is fast. We had a complimentary lunch here with our beach excursion. The portions were huge, I couldn't finish mine! But the chicken was very disappointing, cooked too quickly and it seemed like it was frozen before it came out. Fries were good though. However, the beach and the view is absolutely breathtaking. I would come... More

We were on a cruise (as was about 85% of the other visitors that day) and went to Kakao Beach, formerly known as Bikini Beach. The place has been renovated and the beach chairs were comfortable, but I think KB's rentals are the most expensive on the "strip". While we could have had Nicolas or his co-worker bring us lunch,...

Rented chairs and umbrella and loved Orient Beach. My kids rented boogie boards and we loved all the hustle and bustle of this beach. Kakao has a clean bathroom and I think showers to rinse off the sand too. Orient Bay, where Kakao is located, has a lot of seaweed now. I saw some beach clubs cleaning it up in... More

Kakao has a relaxed beach vibe and private cabanas. Service was super attentive and fast, and food was great. We enjoyed an amazing fruit plate as a desert - was not enough to share for four people. Thank you!

We have been coming to St. Martin during the Christmas holiday for our timeshare at Flamingo for nearly 25 years. When we say Kakao is actually better for dining than some of the island's top restaurants, we are not kidding. Bear in mind, we are foodies. During our week on St. Martin, we averaged over $400 per day for food... More
