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

This is the place on Orient Beach. Great chairs, great location, Sports bar TV's, quiet cabanas with your feet in the sand, great original boutique, excellent service, good toilets and shower, playpark for the kids, parking, a small beach side cocktail bar, lobster tank, pirate figures, but, most of all, excellent cuisine. Been eating, swimming, lounging, drinking here for over... 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.

We come to St. Maarten every year (Dutch side) but always manage to wander up to the French side to spend a day or two on Orient Beach or nearby Club Orient. Being nestled in the shade of a cool jungle directly on the beach, the food a Kakao's is second to none. While the island has so many restaurants... More

Wonderfully located at the centre of Orient Bay, with sun beds and dark blue parasols, white sand, sun and please disregard stormy weather. An awfully lot to go for. But . . . be aware of two very horrible obnoxious infantile, impolite, lying and disrespectful guys. Although Kakao Beach management (Hervé) tried to appease the situation with offering free lunch...

We come here every year and this is our favourite spot on the island. The beach is beautiful, the sun beds are the best on the island (sooo soft), the waiters are very helpful and friendly, the frozen pina coladas are excellent and so is the food!
