A little expensive

A little expensive but the food was great. The service was a little slow, but that is the same all over the island.

We had a group of 9 and decided on this nearby beachfront staple. Not disappointed! We ordered a huge snapper and apps. We were treated to home made rum after dessert as well! Quite yummy. Price is decent and service was outstanding. Check out the picture of the big ol' fish!

We sat at the Bar, right on the beach. JP our bartender made sure we always had a cold beer or drink. When ordered food he was happy to get it and bring it right to our spot. We had the grilled garlic shrimp, Trigger fish (Awesome) with a Ginger Soy sauce and the Fitters...plenty for the four of us... More

Located right on Orient Beach, direct from our Villa. We shared Vietnamese Spring Rolls as a starter and I ordered Bacon pesto & olives pizza and my husband had La Panaché. Portions were just right and the service was outstanding. Beautiful views of the beach. We highly recommend Free wifi is a nice treat.

Great fish and good for kids. Right on beach. Had a nice table for 7 right on the beach for a late lunch. We had several lunch specials and kids ate as well. Also a good set up to hang for the day with a playground, bathrooms, showers, bar, etc... Would do again.

Hearty French and American fare at Orient Bay beach served at wooden picnic tables under a canopy. My husband had a delicious Caesar shrimp salad while I enjoyed a great cheddar cheeseburger with fresh tomato and onion slices on a tasty bun served with very good French fries. Whatever you do, don't pass up on their Guavaberry juice drink with... More
