Had lunch here recently prior to some beach time, and the ceviche was some of the best I have had anywhere.

It's an upscale place next to a bunch of more downscale offerings (but useful in their own way), with very nice modern decor and an open layout maximizing views of the water. We concentrated on all things fish, so we had several different varieties of sushi in addition to the ceviche. The sushi was very good, although a bit steep relative to what I am used to paying for of similar quality. But the ceviche was the star of the menu - in fact, of the 7 or 8 restaurant meals I had this trip, it was the single best thing I ate on the island.

It's worth stopping by just for that, and if you are looking for a nice spot to set up shop post-meal on the beach, they have a pretty good location, although you will be asked to pay more for beach chairs than at the neighboring establishments.

A chair and umbrella on the sand will cost you $50 but the location is ideal and the restaurant is worth visiting. Great service overall. Loved it!

Kontiki offers a wide selection of food in an upscale beach front atmosphere. When I'm on Orient Beach, I try to stop there every day, stretch out on a cabana and enjoy some Sushi or Pad Thai on the beach. Loving it!!

We're back on the French side!!! Just a short walk to Orient Beach to see it all. Excellent service by Ariela and Dylan who works hard to give you top notch service on the beach. $30.00 for two lounge chairs and an umbrella for the day. Bathroom and Wi Fi service is available if you park yourself close to the bar area. Menu and drink service is non stop if you need something. The water was warm and a bit weedy!!! The people watching is "non stop". Women optional topless here. The beach is kept up and clean. Free parking in the dusty lot close to all. We didn't order lunch since we had a late brunch at home. Don't forget the sun block. We will be back!!! Enjoy!!!

What a fantastic find with a view. A great destination for a romantic drink, appetizers or all out dinner. Swings at the bar make this a popular photo location and the soft couches makes for a romantic and relaxing destination. The food is excellent and the drinks are made with equal care and precision. A great find on a beautiful island.
