Great location on Orient Beach

We visited Kakao and had the guavaberry colada. It was very refreshing! We arrived prior to when their food service started though and were not able to try the food there. Hopefully someday I can return as I would definitely like to eat there. It had a nice vibe about it. You could sit in the... read more

Hopefully someday I can return as I would definitely like to eat there. It had a nice vibe about it. You could sit in the sun or shade.

I spent 9 days in St Martin and had lunch everyday we were on the Beach at Kakao. The did a fantastic job. Food was excellent, service was excellent and cocktails were excellent. See Karl out front for chairs in a great central location on the bay.

Had the veal milanese which was chewy rawhide and the pasta sauce fell just short of store brand jar sauce. If you must go, because the setting is one of the better ones on the beach (which is why the second star), my wife's salmon salad was pretty good. But there are much better options for cheaper money on this... More

I have been to this beach restaurant with my husband for many years and its keeping its high quality, no doubt. As many restaurants in Orient Bay and other beaches in Saint Martin and Sint Maarten you can eat quality food 8specially in the French side) with your feet on the white sand, wearing your bikini and looking at the...

The menu is extensive, from simple fare to exotic French dishes. The service was superb. Many tables have their own huts right on the beach. Overall a top notch experience.

Our tour bus took us to this restaurant, which was practically on the beach with a lot of small huts, each seating four. The view was magnificient with the emerald ocean, blue beach chairs, white sand, and the occasionally yellow parasail shutes. The waiters were friendly and helpful, the food was good, but you pay much less attention to the... More

Pizza was very good. They provide a bottle of spiced olive oil to accompany the pizza which was very nice. Lovely place to sit in the shade with a breeze and watch people kite sail. While this isn't the nude part of the beach there were a couple of people that had drifted down topless. The only negative about this... More
