Freshest Seafood, excellent service, and Orient Beach was the best ever scenery.

Had the seafood linguini for lunch with friends. It was the best ever, fresh local seafood prepared and presented beautifully, sitting under a thatched roof, views of the ocean blue-green, and the sound of waves, awesome, Service was excellent even though they were busy. Second time there and can... read more

We were famished and Kakao had good reviews, so we ordered a cheeseburger, caesar sald and grilled mahi mahi. Initial service was good as was the presentation. After that, not so much. The mixed drinks were watered down - if my wide doesn;t get a buzz from her first drink you know there's something missing! The fish was overdone. And... More

We spent several days at Kakao and had a great time! We enjoyed the beach chairs, the beach bar and the great food at the covered huts! Stephan would wait on us daily and was very friendly and an excellent server! The food was some of the best we had on the island, we went back several days since we... More

We had great salads, perfect fit for the middle of the day in French baguette-land where we are trying to behave a little bit to make amends for evening dessert. Service was good, island-time, friendly. We were happy until it was time to pay the check. Apparently, the very apologetic waitress had to wait for her boss to run the... More

This informal restaurant on the beach has wonderful food, delightful service, reasonable prices and a superb location. Small, appealing addendum to the bigger Kakao restaurant next door. Very good too for vegetarians like us.

This is a lovely beachside restaurant/bar on Orient Bay. Service is attentive, the hut seating is neat and comfortable, and the food is pretty good. I had the lobster salad, which was excellent, and Sweetie the Creole platter (cod fritters were ok, not the best, but the deviled crab was excellent).
