This restaurant serves some nice French / Italian dishes and also had 1-2 vegetarian options. It was the first restaurant that actually had a high chair for our daughter but they didn't have anything kid friendly on the menu. Hower, it was possible to order a small portion of any of the pizzas or pastas. The waitresses were all very... More

I wonder if they rest on their laurels at this place. I would have liked to rate them as "good", but Trip Advisor has Average and Very Good as only options, and it is in between. Having been rated as No.1 restaurant at Orient Bay we had expected more. Sure, the food was good, but the service was very slow... More

We went twice during our week in Orient Bay. The first time we had two different duck dishes. Both were fantastic. Our second visit, my spouse had the mussels (among the best she's ever had) I had a hearty tortellini bolognese which was very good. The wine is list is small but very good and not ridiculously priced. The people... More

Everything was quite good and if you are hungry you will be pleased since the portions are big. However, I was surprised to be ask by the waiter if I wanted to put the tip on my credit card??? We are in France, 15% tip and tax are included unless told otherwise (by the way, if you are VERY satisfied... More

Staff was very nice and my food was good but the reviews from my party of 8 were mixed from very good to just so-so on the food. I think we were all overwhelmed with the number of specials. There were almost as many specials as there were items on the menu and it took a very long time for... More

Best meal in Orient Bay. Fresh seafood, steaks, pork, pizza... big menu with great variety. As our hostess described each selection our decisions were more difficult to make.

We were asked to abandon our table before we got as far as to order, because we were only two, and the waiter wanted to get in a company of four who considered the restaurant. We were asked to move to a table inside, which was not tempting on a warm evening. We left, and were warmly welcomed at the... More

I've stayed in orient bay twice now (once July 2016 and once January 2017) and ate at le piment both times. The prices are comparable to the other restaurants in orient bay village but this is one of my favorites. They were great with our reservation, had wonderful outdoor seating and both times we went the food was excellent. Also,... More
