A visit to Le Piment is one of our traditions every year when we go to St. Martin. I thought this year it had really 'upped its game'. It has always been enjoyable, but this year I thought the food was even better than usual. If you don't want a big meal, the pizza is terrific. And last but not... More

In January our experience was very average - after several years of great food & service. This visit was somewhat improved - we had very good food - with mixed service. The salad we started with was fabulous! Definitely big enough to share. The flavours were so good. Will have to have another one during this visit. The main course... More

Le Piment was one of our favorite restaurants we dined at on this trip. We just walked from our villa rental in Orient Bay to the main restaurant area in Orient Bay. It was a fairly busy Wednesday night with live music in the square. We were seated right away in the back of the restaurant; the front which is... More

This restaurant is located on Orient Beach square, it's very cute there with few restaurant options. Seems to be where French locals eat. We did not hear any English while dining. Service was friendly and the way the waitress explained the menu was just mouth watering . When you eat the food it's a different story, it wasn't bad but... More

We have had pizza several times at Le Piment, and they will add custom toppings from the menu selections. Sorry we can't comment on other selections which I have heard are just as good, but that has become our pizza place. Crystal runs a great show, and makes you feel like you have been friends forever.

We make a point of returning to this restaurant each year. Every meal eaten there is fabulous, some of the best food we've had when eating out. The seven hour lamb dish is fantastic, all the italian dishes are delicious, appetizers are huge but don't order too much as the meals are really filling and you can't miss the desserts!... More

It's French restaurant with some Italian items, they also have a specials menu which is as big or bigger then the menu itself, so walk by and check them out. The specials seem more innovative then the regular menu. I had puff pastry filled with duck confit that's been pulled off the bone and mixed with a very savory wine/mushroom... More

Menu is extensive, but chef added specials should not be missed. My husband and I shared a great salad with goat cheese, smoked duck mescaline greens, strawberries, cherry tomato, etc. I chose an entree of lamb chops prepared to my taste perfectly. All entrees served with a pot of mixed vegetables. We had no room for dessert, but complimentary rum... More

This is the very best in food quality and service. Prices are so reasonable and the flavors out of this world. We have eaten here 4 times this week...tough to find a place to beat it.
