We ate here three times while in St. Martin this trip. On the first occasion, I had a cheesburger and my husband had mahi-mahi. The cheeseburger was standard, the mahi-mahi was excellent. Both came with sides which were too much to eat. Next time my husband had the burger and I had the salad with smoked salmon and shrimp. Excellent... More

The hospitality at Le String is incredible. Max had our chairs set up everyday facing into the sun with reserved signs! The service was outstanding, the owners and staff were like old friends by the end of our stay. They are remodeling the restroom, freshwater shower and decking – very nice. Tables and chairs inside were new as well. Orient... More

This little restaurant/bar on Orient beach was fantastic. Ate most days here! Food was excellent and drinks were also great. They also would remember your previous visit and give you free shots. You could also use their clean bathroom any time during your stay on the beach. Really nice people as well. Would go back in a heartbeat.

We spent the day on the beach in front of le string. The mussels were absolutely perfect! Having cooked in a French hotel, it is difficult for me to find food that has been properly prepared. We will definitely be back next year. $8 gets you a chair, a drink, and umbrella. This is a beautiful but crowded beach.

We returned to this spot a couple of times during our week on the island. Food was terrific and tasty. The couple who own the restaurant are fun. We drank. We ate. We rented beach chairs in front of the place. Local flavored food and drink. 3 days in a row likely says enough. Casual as casual can get.

We arrived at Le String around 1030 am, the weather was iffy. We had rain on the drive to the beach but you could tell the sun was trying to come out. We were a party of 4 adults. We started out by sitting at the bar for a drink. The bartender was a tall, thin gal (so sorry I... More
