The food was excellent, but the service was so bad and the noise level atrocious that the evening was very disappointing. We had to ask three times to get some ice, three times to get our bill. Then the waitress disappeared with our credit card (waiters usually bring the machine to the table in France). When we complained politely she... More

The menu has a lot of variety, and the service is excellent. Over the years we have eaten there numerous times, and each time it has been outstanding.

Had a wonderful meat at Le Piment in Orient Bay Village. French flair with salads that were fresh and huge. Fish dishes are terrific, pasta is done well. This is the top restaurant in the Village and we tried most during our stay. The restaurant is well run by a small crew of dedicated workers and the woman who runs... More

We had dinner twice here during our recent trip to Orient Beach. The first night was so good we went back the next night. The food was tasty with flavour bursting in your mouth from first bite. The service was great. The atmosphere is romantic. The only complaint we had...it is a small space and the first night there was... More

We've been here several times. Service is good. Great salads. We love the seafood dishes. Fun, tastey desserts. If you are vacationing near Orient Bay, place this on your list.

Other travelers recommended this place and so we felt good about trying it. We had duck in fig sauce which was delicious as well as the crispy lamb which was so original in taste and preparation. There is outdoor as well as indoor seating. You can dress casual or if you feel like doing more you will be fine. Orient... More

These folks have been doing it right all the years we have vacationed at Orient Beach. They have a great menu, and nothing I have ordered there has disappointed. They do a great job with their Italian dishes. You can go for Pizza or fine meat or seafood dishes. I only wish we had a restaurant like this close to... More

we visited without a reservation last Saturday night. I was curious - and skeptical - about the high rating. However, my steak was one of the best that I have ever eaten, and my wife raves about the pizza. Would highly recommend

We checked out the other restaurants the area; this one had the best feel. It got busy as soon as we were seated but the service was very good and all the staff were friendly. A small but good selection of wine choices. The food menu was extensiver and interesting ( and bonus: an iPad menu so you see the... More

There are half a dozen restaurants in this little cluster. This one was by far the busiest , and it was easy to tell why. The menu was incredibly deep. The portions were huge, but the materials and the complexity were equally amazing. Quick, helpful service and a delightful atmosphere. Well Worth the drive.
