Great restaurant on Orient Bay.

July 27, 2015 visit to the restaurant for lunch. Sit in a covered beach hut looking out to Orient Bay. Great place for lunch. Service was good, food was excellent.

Did our traditional 1 day trip to the beaches at Orient Bay while on the island. This time landed at the stretch called Kakao Beach. Orient is a beautiful crescent shaped beach. Lots of activities on the water (ski do’s, floating trampolines, parachute rides, etc). Some sections have been carved into territories like Kakao. You can rent a lounge and... More

The first meal we had there was the best ever, we were late after 3pm, we enjoyed it so much that we went back a few days later, but then at about 1pm, they were busy and the food was average. The service was always excellent and very friendly.

Imagine great food with friendly fast service with Orient Beach in your view and that is Kakao. They have many unique items that are all good. Must do dining when at Orient. Or just kick back with a tropical drink on the water.

This trip was the first time we ate here. We really enjoyed everything about Kakao. Staff was friendly and service was very good. My son and my mom shared the pizza. The salad Nicoise was excellent. We shared a plate of fries - yummy!

My family had lunch at Kakao's and it was fabulous! Great food, great service and beautiful view. We all had the pizza which was delicious. They are big enough to share between 2 people.
