The techno music boom, boom boom all day, honestly my ears were fatigued at the end of the day. I like music as a rule. The service was great, food o la la French, drinks were reasonable and not watered down. We found the beach safe to swim, not much current when we were there. Wish the management would consider...

The vibe and food is the best on Orient Beach. It's separated from the row of beach clubs and with the extra trek. Has a St Tropez feel. Delicious seafood. Food presentation is wonderful. The wine list is very good. A couple photos of food and a few with the tables and ambience.Take a look.

i was going to try the Tuna. The waitress recommended some Special. After a long time we got our food one bite i could not eat any more. They should sell hot dogs and Hanburgers they for sure are not french. Then they charged me for the meal. We were with 13 people our bills were very big every meal.... More

Nice location, friendly and attentive staff, food is French and quite good. Location is nice, great beach area, water sports if you want (rentals for jet skis, wind surfing, etc) Nice bar area, chairs and umbrellas available (free with lunch) on beach Bathrooms functional but could use some updating. Owners are on site and very accommodating .

We spent the afternoon and had lunch at this beautiful spot on Orient Beach on the French side of Saint Martin. Lunch was fresh and so unexpectedly sophisticated. I had perfectly grilled tuna and my husband had escargot. A bottle of rosé made it perfect. Beach chairs and umbrella are included when you lunch there. The staff is friendly, attentive... More

Some friends took us to Palm Beach Restaurant at lunch time it is near the north end of the beach so instead of walking the beach we drove heading down the side road marked by their sign. Place seemed relatively new, well maintained and upscale. I believe it is owned by what used to be coco's and he came around... More

We went to Palm Beach twice, but we were disappointed both times. The first time, we ordered vegiterian salad and it was soggy, ceasar salad had so much dressing, the croutons were soggy, the monk fish tails were overdone and they were served luke warm. I think that they do not have enough servers or the servers that they have... More

nice location. They present the food in a beautiful plating but.....my fish was tough & tasteless. The chili sauce did not compliment the dish. My wife's veal scallopini was tough & too fatty to eat. We also found it overpriced at $75 (before tip) lunch for 2 with no alcohol.
