Trip Adviser gives this want to be French restaurant a rating! Well it's an over glorified Pizza place that wants despritly to be a French restaurant. Menues have only pizzas on it. It's night time Menu is on a chalk board. Well lets get to it. Three bottles of flat water very cold perfectly prepared! No appetizer all salads! Not interested. So straight to a good meal or so I thought. I ordered lamb chops well done. My wife beef tenderloin medium well. My sons ordered ribeye steak and duck. My son wanted the duck well done the waiter said no medium we said no well done. It came out medium. My lamb chops medium. No flaver, fat not trimmed well enough. Tenderloin well can you say bloody and could bounce it off the floor! Side salad on the plates was for Rabits. Only thing done good was the ribeye! Lucky them how can you mess up a steak.

You want pizza I'm sure they make it very nice! You want a meal run the other way! Any wAy. Lots of other places to eat and spend your money. Done waist your time?

We were told good things about Le Piment, but were not impressed. The seafood pasta needed more sauce, and the seafood was dry and very limited. We recommend you try Le Table d’Antoinne.

We have eaten at le Piment at least once during each trip for the last 3 years. This year we had a delicious antipasta and meatballs provencale. Delicious! The meatballs entree was a french country dish based. The creme brulee was also fantastic. Down to the olive tapenade on the antipasta, everything is made fresh.

They probably do need more help but it is worth the wait to hear the hostess (who I think is one of the owners) describe the list of foods off of the chalkboard. She is animated and makes every dish sound like something you will want....and when you try them... you will!

We wandered into Le Piment while looking at the Orient Bay restaurants. The young woman was very persuasive and praised the chef so highly, we thought it worth a try. She was right. The herb rolls were extremely good. I chose a pasta with mussels, shrimp, and fish which was quite good. One of our group had a pizza, three had beef, and another had fish and everyone enjoyed their meal. The wines are fairly reasonable in price. You will want a doggy bag to carry the rest home as the servings are generous.

Every year we come to St. Maarten, we go to Le Piment several times and not once have we been disappointed. The food is always wonderful and beautifully presented!
