Andy passed away two years ago...Cheryl decided that she no longer wanted to keep Baywatch after the French govt. made the renovations to many of the "older" Restaurants on Orient Beach. We ALL miss Andy & Cheryl and Ross & Staff!!

The food is excellent, the owners are great, from New Jersey, but unfortunately, Andy passed away and when I was their last in Dec, the old place was torn down and a new place was being constructed. I couldn't find Cheryl so I don't know if she is still going to be running it. If she is, I know nothing... More

The French government has torn down all of the building on Orient Bay Beach from Pedro's north to Kon Tiki. The vendors who were located behind the beach bars are gone as well. On my recent trip I really missed Cheryl's meatball parm platter. Now the big question is "How many of the original owners will be back". The latest... More

The Collective in St Maarten has closed 14 restaurants & shops between Kon Tiki and the rocks at the South end of Orient Beach. The buildings are in the process of being torn down, they are to be relocated 100 yards or so off of the beach, which will then be replenished. From discussions with several of the owners/mangers, (1)... More

I chose the chicken cheese steak over my usual cheese steak, and was not disappointed. Both are delicious. Cheryl was her usual friendly self.

A great place to stop on Orient Beach. Andy has died but his legacy carries on with Cheryl. Stop by for a drink and check out the license plate from all over the USA

Had a great visit with Cheryl ( God bless Andy who departed us in Dec 13). Cheryl still carring on like always. Mussels where super. Hope French Govt doesn't ruin the feeling of beach front shacks with upgrades.

Andy and Cheryl have built an institution on Orient Beach. An eclectic combination of Italian and good old NJ/NY classics along with great people make this a must visit while on Orient Beach in St. Martin. Cheryl is a wonderful hostess and the view on the Beach is without compare. You must try the mussels if available that day.

We discover Andy and Cheryl's on Orient Beach 8 years ago on our 1st visit and it never fails to please. Cheryl is such a lovely lady and makes you feel at home. My husband had the Chicken Philly with peppers and cheese and it was fantastic. I had a chicken and cheese sandwich (wish I could remember the name)... More

Just got back from our annual trip to Orient and had lunch or breakfast everyday(except Monday when closed) at our favorite place. Cheryl remains a charming host with George her erstwhile assistant. Don't miss it for great seafood and American comfort food at its best. As always, we loved the mussels, the grouper, sausage and peppers, burger, and real NY... More
