My wife and I ate here with two other couples and had a very good time. First of all, the maitre di' was as charming as can be! We arrived on a Sunday afternoon without a reservation when the place was packed! "No problem" he said. He looked at his chart, made some faces and told us that he would... More

After a week in St. Martin, a few in our group were craving sushi. Not expecting much, but needed that urge settled, we discovered that Kontiki has a rather good selection of sushi, so off we went. We were given the most lovely table, which gave the illusion you were almost seated on the water. This allowed us a beautiful... More

Expectations were low as we walked into this beach establishment. Overall, service was slow but friendly. Food was mixed. Two of the diners thought the meal was the best experienced on the island while two thought it was average. The Babun Salad and the Mahi Mahi ceviche were phenomenal while the pad thai and the salad juliese with chicken and... More

Great food and directly on the beach. Good music and atomosphere. It is somewhat expensive, but no more so than any other place on Orient.

Stoped by Orient Bay mid-day to see what it was about. Kontiki is further around the corner from the initial row of restaurants but worth the extra walk, very cool setting, loved the view from elevated patio. We ended up staying longer than expected because people watching was so entertaining, service good & view spectacular - IMO there's not a... More

This place is a bit more upscale than most on the beach. It is tri-level for seating, so you never feels crowded. Menu consists of meat, seafood, and an extensive sushi list. As a vegetarian, I was somewhat challenged to find something, but settled on a burrata salad with heirloom tomatoes and a veggie sushi roll. Both were delicious. My... More

This a a great spot to spend a day on the beach. Chair service was excellent, Benjamin cleaned up our chairs, smoothed our towels and made sure we were "hydrated" all day :) The lunch in the restaurant is delicious, with great options. Sushi, burgers, salads, we ate it all! The bartender Marco was incredible. Watching him dance his way... More
