“A great place to spend your days at Orient beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012

We spent all our time at Ethnic while we were at Orient Bay,at least 10 of our 21 days in St Martin. There is a great atmosphere & great food. The rum punches are wonderful! Fred & Benjamin are great hosts.

“Awesome food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

Ethnic offers a great menu of food to snack on at the beach. We selected it because of they let you use their toilet too, had beer by the bucket for a great price-- and the menu was inviting.

Had awesome kebabs and fish served by friendly staff. Also had great chairs and umbrella from them, for a price of course.

“Great place to call home at the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

We went to Orient Beach and found the Ethnic Beach Bar for chairs for the day. It was a good deal - $15 for two chairs, two drinks and an umbrella. It was a great place to relax for the day and food was good. The drinks were exceptional - rum drinks and cold beer on a hot day - how can you go wrong. Service was good and staff was friendly.

Thanks for a fun day, good drinks and comfy seats.

“A great spot - friendly service - good food! A wonderful place on Orient Bay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

We spent a few hours here during our one-day stay from our Cruise. We docked on the other side (Philipsburg) and took a taxi here (20$ for two person for one way, 10$ if you share the taxi). It was a nice ride to Orient Bay and we've seen some part of St. Martin we didn't know yet. We've been here before, but never on the french side.

Orient Bay is a lovely beach...a little rough to swim though (of course depending on the weather and season). We strolled around for a while and the headed to this lovely little Beach Bar. There's plenty of other restaurants and we just tried our luck.

And we couldn't have ended up happier. This place is awesome! The service was really friendly. The beer came cheap and cold. We had some fried shrimp, snails and calamari rings. Everything tasted fresh, nice and crispy. Especially the batter of the Calamari Rings was terrific.
In the end you can sit here on the beach and enjoy the waves without paying for some chairs and umbrella. All you have to do is grab some food or drink.
If you ever come here, this is a great place to be. Highly recommended and we will definitely come back whenever we're back in the Caribbean.
