“The best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Wonderful french food great service. Located in Orient Beach. When your waitress tells you what is "to die for", believe her. Some of the best food we ever had.

“Our best restaurant find in Orient Bay Village.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

My husband and I have been going to St. Martin at least twice a year since 2008. We stumbled upon Le Piment several trips ago by accident. Wow, what we had been missing! The gourmet menu (the chef is from Provence) has the everyday standards, which by itself would be worth the visit. Salads (big enough for two), pizzas with a twist, but, oh the daily specials. I'm a beef lover and my husband loves seafood. Never a so-so meal. Always over the top delicious. You can eat outside under umbrellas or "inside". The service is impeccable. The price is well worth it. We are not big drinkers...maybe a margarita or glass of wine each. Usually a dessert and it runs between $60 to $100. The owner now remembers us and we are greeted with a warm French welcome. So, Crystal we look forward to another fabulous meal in about 9 weeks!

“Surprise! Lets not do it your way”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Trip Adviser gives this want to be French restaurant a rating! Well it's an over glorified Pizza place that wants despritly to be a French restaurant. Menues have only pizzas on it. It's night time Menu is on a chalk board. Well lets get to it. Three bottles of flat water very cold perfectly prepared! No appetizer all salads! Not interested. So straight to a good meal or so I thought. I ordered lamb chops well done. My wife beef tenderloin medium well. My sons ordered ribeye steak and duck. My son wanted the duck well done the waiter said no medium we said no well done. It came out medium. My lamb chops medium. No flaver, fat not trimmed well enough. Tenderloin well can you say bloody and could bounce it off the floor! Side salad on the plates was for Rabits. Only thing done good was the ribeye! Lucky them how can you mess up a steak.

You want pizza I'm sure they make it very nice! You want a meal run the other way! Any wAy. Lots of other places to eat and spend your money. Done waist your time?

“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!
