Very good view

Excellent view of Orient Bay. Perfect setting. Enjoyable wait staff. Food is very good. Seems to have stayed the same for the last six years we've been coming here.

We make sure to make a stop at Kakao Beach Restaurant every time we make our trip over to the Butterfly Farm. This restaurant just makes the rest of the day. It's a perfect people watching spot (or to oogle the beach/view) that has terrific food and cold cocktails. It's a must stop if you're on the beach for the... More

It was a bit pricey compared to restaurants on the Dutch side of the island but my tuna salad was good and the view was amazing!

Beach loungers and bars are well versed in tourism along Orient Beach, but Kakao Beach Bar does it best. One of three places we visited on Orient Beach during our week long stay, my wife and I would highly recommend Coco Beach as it's listed on the beach. A majority of the beach bars overlap one another, but Coco Beach... More

Kakao Beach Restaurant has some of the best food on Orient Bay Beach. Consistently creative, fresh fish and unusual presentation of vegetables. Staff is excellent, friendly, and always on top of things. It's a few steps off the beach, and out of the sun, comfortable booths under the trees and just a delightful place to be. Wish they served breakfast!

Had lunch twice and enjoyed it immensely. They have amazingly good personal pizzas in interesting flavor combinations. Had salads Nicole's one day and was very pleased. Also tagliatelle with shrimp that was very tasty. Get a coupon online for buy one get one drinks with lunch. That even includes wine. Service is friendly and efficient. They'll even make something for... More

We had the maui-maui fish. The fish was grilled like you would expect in a Caribbean area, but then the sauce was very French. The sauce on the fish was a mustard and lemon creamy sauce with black pepper. I will try experimenting at home to recreate it. The rice was good for rice. It was yellow (saffron?) and had... More

The surroundings makes it all! We ordered chicken and fish. The chicken was very dry but the "mahi-mahi" was delicious. We loved sitting under the wooden roof with lovely views over the beach. Why not a five? Because of the waiter who wasn't especially engaged in serving us.
