If you want a place to escape the humidity of the Caribbean side of St. Maarten, visiting this beach restaurant is a must. You can use the beach chairs and facilities if you buy a drink or have a meal. There is also a lovely French boutique with beachwear onsite. The beach is awesome and you can walk for a... More

My wife and I were in St. Martin on vacation and wanted to visit Orient Beach. We stopped for a drink around mid day and to sit on the beach for a little while. There was a beach bar and restaurant called the Palm Beach. We walked up to the bar and at that at the time it was not... More

All in all, one of our favorite go to spots . Parking is ample and easy. Beach is relaxing and fairly uncrowned as the number of chairs is somewhat limited. The $25 chair/umbrella fee is waived if you eat lunch there. The past two years the food has been wonderful. A broad selection is available and served either on the... More

Went to other places along Orient Beach and this place is at the very end. Run down looking, bathrooms are co-ed and falling apart, weeds on the beach and in the surf. And was told by the beach boy that the Wi-Fi works sometimes and once in a while. We didn't have lunch there due to a big breakfast, so... More

This has always been our favorite lunch spot on Orient. Our first visit was good but the second was a disaster due to a very rude waitress who gave very poor service. It is under new management and obviously consistently good service is not a priority for them. We will never return with so many other great places to eat... More

We wanted to spend a few hours at Orient Beach since we hadn't been here in a long time. Drove from Simpson Bay area and the map seemed to be missing the side roads to get to Orient Beach so as we realized we were soon to be north of Orient Bay/beach we turned into the Palm Beach/Orient Bay driveway...

Love love love this place.. Favorite appetizer the Goat cheese Crostini with Sundried tomatoes. The Lobster salad was so delicious. The Chaise lounges are the most comfortable on the island.

Such a beautiful day at Palm Beach. Everything was perfect. Food, beach, music entertainment. Only negative was the wind and some sea weed on beach.

We love to eat here and usually try to catch an early dinner here if we can, but lunch here is also excellent. Very good French cuisine and the creme brulee here is awesome. One of the best beach bars on Orient and if you have your lunch here the chairs are free. They will bring your cocktails right to... More
