“Over-rated?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

We were told good things about Le Piment, but were not impressed. The seafood pasta needed more sauce, and the seafood was dry and very limited. We recommend you try Le Table d’Antoinne.

“Le Piment continues to awe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

We have eaten at le Piment at least once during each trip for the last 3 years. This year we had a delicious antipasta and meatballs provencale. Delicious! The meatballs entree was a french country dish based. The creme brulee was also fantastic. Down to the olive tapenade on the antipasta, everything is made fresh.

They probably do need more help but it is worth the wait to hear the hostess (who I think is one of the owners) describe the list of foods off of the chalkboard. She is animated and makes every dish sound like something you will want....and when you try them... you will!

“Good food, good service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

We wandered into Le Piment while looking at the Orient Bay restaurants. The young woman was very persuasive and praised the chef so highly, we thought it worth a try. She was right. The herb rolls were extremely good. I chose a pasta with mussels, shrimp, and fish which was quite good. One of our group had a pizza, three had beef, and another had fish and everyone enjoyed their meal. The wines are fairly reasonable in price. You will want a doggy bag to carry the rest home as the servings are generous.

Every year we come to St. Maarten, we go to Le Piment several times and not once have we been disappointed. The food is always wonderful and beautifully presented!

“Always the best table in Sint-Maarten”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We're going there for years now, and it's always better & better.
For me it's the best gourmet food on the island.
Keep on the good work!
