Lunch buffet at the beach with a spectacular view of the ocean

A really wide variety of dishes for reasonable price ( € 8.00 for children ; € 15.00 for adults). The buffet opens at 12:30 and is extremely popular. I particularly liked the salads and paella, but there was chicken, fish, lamb etc. The dessert tables offered chocolate mousse, watermelon and apple... read more

Only good thing i can say is the buffet was good, only because you didnt need to interact with the personel there. Otherwise its as if they didnt want you there, i have heard the French are by nature ..rude... getting a overpriced beer seem to be a problem for them, you know ,me not speakin the french.

The Waikiki restaurant in Orient Bay, French Saint Martin, has low quality service and food is compared with other restaurants in orient Bay, like its neighbours Coco and Bikini beach, or Kakao beach, a bit further. They lost their charming environment for a huge square saloon with not charm at all. The tables and chairs are also huge, done of... More

My family of 5 really enjoyed this beach and the lunch buffet that was included with our excursion. We arrived early, which I recommend, since the beach CAN get crowded as the day goes on. The restaurant was clean, with a GREAT view, and the food was excellent! It was NOT all-you-can-eat, which was totally fine, since my family does... More

I walked the beach looking for a place to settle. This place had nice maroon cushions. They really stood out. We settled. Drank. And chilled. Prices were average. Drinks were well made. My bbc was deelish... and large! :) I would recommend.

Enjoyed their reasonably priced buffet here last week. Nice selection; good amount of seafood in the buffet. 2nd and 3rd visits to the buffet shouldn't be uncommon. Worth a visit if you are eating on Orient Bay

One of the most overpriced places on the beach, if not the whole island. A coffee for 5€???? The quality of food is substandard, especially given the prices this place charges. Avoid and save your money on something decent.

Having gone to St.Martin for many years and visiting and staying around Orient many times...I can tell you that this was one of the best I've been to. Beach service was awesome, food was very good, and the overall experience says I will definitely be back there next year!

Waikiki is located on one of the larger beaches on the island and offers good service and food to enjoy your day. Its a great place to enjoy with families since close by you can enjoy watersports. We ordered our food and sat on the deck to enjoy all the amazing plates they brought us. We also had a bed... More
