This was our first place that we ate at on the island. It was recommended to us by a friend. When we arrived, the view was beautiful, as this place is right on Orient Beach. We went up to the bar, as there did not appear to be any wait staff there. It was about 2:30 and there was no... More

Food was good here, Beef Carpacchio was delightful. Met with a local business woman here for an real estate review; she ordered in French for us and we enjoyed our selections here!

Casual dinning with very good food, nice beach location. I was a little spendy for casual style dining but the food was better than some of the "Fine Dining" establishments on the island.

We had a terrific lunch at Kakao. Typically these types of beachfront restaurants are more about the drinks than the food, or more about the scenery than the food, but I have to say that it was a great dining experience all around. We had a big table for 9 people and the pastas, pizzas, seafood was tasty, had good... More

We ate lunch at Kakoa on Orient Beach - AMAZING! My husband had the Spiced Chicken and said it was one of the best meals he had ever eaten. Our daughter had a very rich chocolate cake for dessert and loved it. The seating was comfortable and the service was exceptional!

We always visit Kakao because of Gipee. He has a great little bar right on the beach in front of Kakao and really takes care of the vistors to the restaurant. Very friendly and nice person.

We went to Kakao Cafe because our hotel (Palm Court) has an agreement for chairs and umbrella with this locale. It is next to the Vela kite and windsurf place and conveniently located. We went there for lunch one day and ordered 2 drinks, 2 entrees and a bottle of water. It was over $70!! Go somewhere else for lunch.
