Been serving our beach appetite up to Cedric beach chair side for many years now. Id say they have the finest burger on beach. Served with excellent fries. The chicken salad is an absolute treat. Pizzas are also the best. Never had a meal that was not first class. Service a little hit or miss in restaurant but always great... More

The food is quite good, and it's even better when the waiters are all so handsome! We had the eggplant pizza: crispy and tasty. Nice place to stop for lunch and then take a stroll along the beach til you reach the nudist side.

We became friendly with a local who suggested Kakao. It is an outdoor restaurant with a wonderful bar and restaurant adjacent to the beach. There is lots of foliage which makes for a comfortable environment on hot days. We were very pleased with our Chicken Grille and Creole shrimp & Chicken. And the Chocolate cake with ice cream was worth... More

We went here last week while visiting St. Maarten. In previous years, we have visited other establishments on Orient Beach, but it seems that the beach has eroded at most of these places (down closer to Club Orient) so there is little to no room for the typical beach chairs and umbrellas. So we ended up at Kakao where there... More

Spent the day here while on a cruise. Loungers really comfy and good value. Ordered quite a few soft drinks from the bar, good service, a bit pricey but expected due to location. Ate lunch in the restaurant, such good food!! Massive portions, ordered a pizza and burger, really tasty and good quality. Would recommend!!

I did not eat here, however rented some chairs and an umbrella. The French gentleman that was our server did great. He stopped by plenty of times and kept our beer bucket full of beer and ice. It was the slow season, therefore not all of Kakao was open, however would love to go back during the busy season when... More

Recent visit to Orient beach placed us right at Kakao Beach Bar, by recommendation of our taxi driver. Good call! Rented a couple lounges for fair price and spent day enjoying fabulous drinks and food by our attentive servers. Prices and food by far the best on beach. The view of the crystal clear water and mountains in background made... More

This beach features huge chaise loungers w/ umbrellas ($15 for 2 chairs & an umbrella set- up) they were actually a welcomed site as it was so hot that day. The beach was quite & very inviting. The gentleman tending bar charged us $6 for 2 bottles of what should've been ice- cold bottles of water (no Poland springs here).... More
