I wrote a review on this restaurant last year under my wife's name (her computer). I titled it "A Place Where You Are Treated Like A Friend"! I'm happy to report that nothing has changed. Cristelle, the owner, continues to combine charm with excellent food and service! The Smoked Duck Goat Cheese salad is a favorite of mine; my wife... More

This was our choice for the first dinner we had on island. We shared a pizza and prosciutto, and then I had a good goat cheese salad with duck. My friends enjoyed the gnocchi and the bolognese (but would steer you away from the salmon pasta.) The service was very nice and friendly. If possible, grab one of the patio... More

Every year when we go back to Orient Bay, it is a must to have dinner at Le Piment.Cristell is amazing and very passionate to explain the menu and pair the food what we pick with a great wine. Our favorite appetizer is Toast of pan cooked foie gras . The beef tenderloin is the best.

We highly recommend Le Piment for dinner. The staff/owners are very personable. The food is perfect with many choices and the prices are reasonable. We had a large appetizer plate to share, drinks, dinner, dessert and coffee.

This was our fourth year of enjoying this restaurant. Cristelle, is always welcoming and enthusiastic about her whole menu. We have had salads, pizza, fish dishes, lamb, and several of the deserts. Nothing has been short of delicious. Her house wine offerings are perfect. Service is attentive and professional. I had the smoked duck breast salad and my wife had... More

We have been going to Le Pimant for many years. Great, friendly staff. Good service. Our group had the Lamb Chops, Pasta Carbonara and the Beef Tenderloin. All were served in a timely manner, even though the Restaurant was very crowded. Food was delicious. Beef and lamb were cooked exactly as we ordered. For dessert, warm chocolate lava cake (yummy)...

This was our first trip to St. Martin, and I made a reservation at Le Piment for our arrival night in Orient Bay, based primarily on Trip Advisor reviews. This restaurant did not disappoint! We were seated in the outdoor section, which allowed us to people-watch, and get a feel for the plaza where Le Piment and several other restaurants... More

On our sixth trip to Orient Beach, this restaurant has become a must do. Great staff, good service (by St Martin standards) and have never been disappointed by the food. Sharing an appetizer or salad and one meal or pizza is plenty for two. Went twice this trip and will certainly be back!
