Excellent

We have enjoyed going to LeString for years. The owners are great and take care of the customers. Their food is great and John is very friendly. This year much of their beach was washed away, we are hoping that everything is recovered by now.

Ate here for the first time - though have been visiting Orient Bay for 8 years. Once you find a couple of fabulous French restaurants you do hate to stray too far - especially when we have had a few bad experiences. Today we thought we would try something new. The service was good and the wine was good. Unfortunately... More

Although expensive, the food was very good. They, like others, had beach chair and a drink for a fee, then the food was on top. Was worth it, beautiful location closer to the nude end of the beach which was good because they have the nicest beach for swimming. You could easily walk over there for a swim and come... More

This is the best beach food at Orient Bay hands down! Over a two week period our group ate at a variety of beach restaurant/bars. We kept coming back to Le String. Small by comparison but large on food, fun and friendliness. The cheeseburger is big, juicy and served with great fries. A skewer of shrimp, chicken or beef with... More

This is the third time in as many years that we have enjoyed the string. Cerise, the cook is the best. Her mussels and fish creole dishes are fantastic. Last year the mussels were huge and each year they are perfectly cooked and seasoned. You need a basket of bread to soak up all the delicious sauce. The lovely and... More

At first, seems a bit overwhelming with all the chairs to rent right on top of each other, but once you get settled in, get your VERY POTENT drink....you'll relax quickly! Beach is great for swimming, people watching, drinking and relaxing!
