“Ze place to relax in the sun”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

That is a great place on Orient Beach to lay down in the sun with a cocktail or a bucket of beers. The whole staff takes good care of you. Waitresses are professionals welcoming and so on...John and Fabrice are the beach boys and they do have good tips about everything on the island; they can call any cab whenever you need help to get back to the cruise ship ;-)); they want our business and also want to see us again. They make you feel homy. One very important thing, don't mess up with the cook Sephise, you could end up as the main dish... She is very cute! As for the owners, they are french but they want to make this bar their pride; so trust us they do speak english as they used to live in detroit for a while. Just so you know, you can enjoy burgers, creole cuisine and french cuisine at the same time. I do love jalapenos burgers. Yes we will go back overthere and moreover tourists can't keep on coming over and over (we've met so many us citizens overthere you wouldn't believe...). A very cool thing, they do have a clean bathroom and a shower! Nothing will make us change for another place on the beach.... I was surprised: you need to ask for the check or you could end up all day long at the table (that is a french thing) On the other hand, i think i did taste almost every single cocktail..... Go overthere!

“Chair rental”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

$8 chair and umbrella, includes drink. Crowded because it's the 1st place from the taxi stop. Still ok snacks and good drinks. Good home base.

“love le string”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

We are avid fans of Le String. Not only do we continue to love John, but we have found a fondness for Sev and Lionel as well. We highly recommend this beach bar to tourists, because not only is the food good, but the drinks are the best, and your bill is in U S dollars, not Euros; a very big difference in what it costs to be on the beach.

“Going downhill”
Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

Been going for the last 6 years, this year was pleased to see the bathroom renovated, but the chairs and umbrellas have seen better days. If it were not or Johnny we would go elsewhere. He makes sure all the guest are happy! Owners need to invest in new chairs, umbrellas, and a sign!
