We loved the little "huts" each party has under the trees and right on the beach. The food was so much better than we expected. The service was awesome and you get a lot of food for your money. The atmosphere was relaxed. I would visit again if in the area.

I covered this in my review of Orient Beach. This is the spot we go to when we go to Orient Beach. We love both and Kakao Beach is synonymous with Orient Beach to us.

This has always been one of our favourite places in Orient Beach. The food and the wine are terrific, the service is good but the washrooms are terrible. How can they serve such great food and not offer their clients a decent washroom?

Eat there once. Was filled with loud, smoking, drinking mostly French people watching their team loosing to Germany during World Cup. Food was so-so, cocktail was good, prices ridiculous, not honoring 1 US$ = 1 euro. If you are NOT staying at one of the nearby hotels and even if you do but want to sit on the front raw,... More

This gem sits on the sand at Orient Bay. The food did not disappoint, with the star being the fish sampler platter. There were three types of fish, seasoned in different ways. All of these were cooked perfectly, and were some of the best fish I've ever eaten. Like all of the bars in St. Maarten, the pina coladas were... More

I used to live in St Maarten, but moved away three years ago. I came back this weekend with my wife and went to my favorite Orient Beach hang out......Kakao. It was great. We got two beach chairs & umbrella right on the water. But best of all was "Cedric". He's been there forever and he's still the man!!! Service... More

The food here was amazing! Everything was fresh and cooked to order. We had 4 people and we took the waiters suggestions and tried his favorites. Everything was fabulous. Best meal of our entire trip. Our waiter was so nice and we had excellent service.
