“Popular with locals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

This resturant seems more popular with the locals than with tourists. The food is excellent but not as inviting as Le Piment. The service is ok not as friendly as other resturants on the island. Very nice atmosphere and nice place to sip wine and socialize with friends. Tonight we both had the roast chicken. Very tender with very tasty sauce and wonderful mashed potatoes. We missed having a second side. The rum night cap was fantastic.

“Good French food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

Service was great, we loved the food, and had no problem with the atmosphere but we could see other people getting irritated by the animals (local pets) begging for food and the loud teenagers hanging out at the corner. Now, to me what a great place for kids as there are much worse places for kids to be, so it was not an issue and my wife and I enjoyed the lively events going on all around us. Note that this would be the same for any of the 5 or 6 restaurants in the area. We would definately eat there again.

“Superior across the board”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

When at Orient Beach in St. Martin, break away from some of the more popular eating spots in the square and try Cote Plage. Everything from service to the food is a cut above. It might cost you a few more bucks, but is well worth it. Everybody in the place, from owner to waiter, is there to make your dinner memorable. My wife had the Wahoo; I had the mussels. Throw in a bottle of wine. Besides exquisitely prepared, the portions are very generous. Consider sharing a salad and one of the entrees. Afterwards, consider the bar, where you can get a generously poured drink for a even dollar/euro exchange. You do not need to drive to Grand Case for a gourment dining experience.... My wife and I agree, we will most definitely return on our next trip.

“Exquisite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

My husband and I enjoyed two beautiful evenings at Cote Plage when we were staying in Orient Bay celebrating my 50th birthday. The dining experience was definitely memorable. The owner greeted us and the wait staff were very gracious and made every effort in creating the perfect evening. We will most definitely return on our next visit to St. Martin!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2012

We had seafood that was first rate, with friendly service. Around 68 euros with no drinks, except for a free glass of wine. Also had so-so live music.
