“Go down the beach to Cocoa's or Waikiki.”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

The 2 young French Beach Boys were very friendly and helpful, but Carl NOT SO MUCH! He was so rude to my family and others.
The food at the Restaurant was a little inconsistent from day to day. Some meals were just OK and others really good. The bartender GP was very nice and always has good conversation.

“Wonderful place to spend a day at the beach.”
Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile

We visited Kakao twice during our trip to St Martin. Both times we rented a beach chair and let our waiter, Nicolas, bring us drinks and food while we sat by the water. Both days we got there around 10 and stayed for at least 4 hours. On the second visit we were caught by an unexpected rain storm and ended up just going to the restaurant itself to grab lunch. Kakao really made our Orient Beach experience nice and we'd definitely recommend it to others.

“Great steak and atmosphere”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

We had great seating by the beach. I ordered the steak. The waiter came back to the table and said that he misspoke and that it did not come with a certain side and when I was disappointed he ended up adding it to my entree. The steak was cooked perfectly and seasoned well. The sides were great. We ordered the Chablis and thought there was something wrong with it. The waiter took a taste to the bartender, whom came over and said nothing was wrong with it. I understand his reaction, but also think he could have been nicer when saying this. My friend ordered the prawns and was disappointed. She said that they tasted freezer burnt. We were brought a glass of ice, but no water. Finally we got the water, but then had to wait a long time to get the bill. I would have given this place a 4 for food taste and beach atmosphere, but service deducted points.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

Perfect location!! Nice bar and nice beach restaurant. The drinks were very good and after we got to know the bartenders, were long pours. We had lunch most days at the restaurant, which was a fun atmosphere right on the beach. The food was very good and large servings. Many days, we ordered something and shared it. Everyone was friendly.

Restaurant and bar get very busy when cruise ships are in port. There is typically about an hour and a half where they are serving the tour guests, but most of the time we missed that frenzy by staying on the beach and eating/drinking later. Highly recommend Kakao!!

“Fantastic!!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

We stopped on our cruise in April 2013, had the best time with the staff and the food was crazy great! We loved the little bar in front of the restaurant so much, that we are booking a week this year! Heather & Darrin & Jamie
