Food is good, service is also good. You have the choice to sit on the ground level or the 2nd level. 2nd level gives you the nicer views of the beach. Sad part - Way over priced..

Relax in your own cabana, enjoying the gentle breezes, while sipping on a glass of wine! Then you can go to your table for an exquisite meal. The lobster salad is especially good. Or feast on a steak. You may also choose to stay in your cabana and enjoy tapas and wine.. End your day with an expresso as you... More

Take the road down to Palm Beach on Orient Bay. The beach and restaurant are away from the hustle and bustle of "orient beach", but an easy walk gets you there. The restaurant staff is attentive, but not pushy. The chairs and umbrellas are well placed, the beach inviting, and the water is great. We had a long, relaxing day... More

They also showed great concern for me. I would recommend this place to everyone as the food was so good we definitely want to go... More

We just got back from a week in St. Maarten (staying on the Dutch side on Dawn Beach, but we discovered this gem of a restaurant and bar while driving around one day and ended up driving all the way back multiple times because it was so much better than the options around where we were staying. Friendliest servers, great... More

The Orient beach is absolutely beautiful. The water is crystal clear and is turquoise in color. If you eat at the restaurant, you get a free lounge chair and umbrella on the beach. You can order your meal to eat at your seats on the beach too The presentation of the meals are incredible. Service is excellent.
