$10 for a chair, umbrella and cocktail. Grilled fish also fantastic. Staff very friendly. Not too crowded. Don't be fooled by the hamburger sign but prob good for the kids.

Stopped in for a drink while walking the beach. Bartender was friendly and make drinks to order. Gave us to go cups to walk with. Although we did not try the food, it looked and smelled great. Would come back.

We went to Orient beach in St. Martin. We were there for the day from the Regal Princess. We were seated in chairs on the beach with this restaurant behind us. From the time we sat down Zalman and Rochelle were very friendly, helpful and personable. We decided to eat there and all had an absolutely outstanding meal. We were... More

We ate at Chez Leandra's 4 times in the ten days we were in Orient Beach! We would have more but we had to make ourselves try some other places. Lovely couple that runs it. Jerk chicken, and ribs are soooo good! I also really love their conch fritters.

Strolling along the beach at Orient Bay, we decided to have lunch at Chez Leandra instead of one of the fancy beach clubs. After long debating we chose the spicy jerk ribs and honey BBQ ribs with fries. Good size portions and the ribs were really tasty, possibly the best we had during our two week stay on the island....

We look forward every year to Leandra's mussels and other good island food. Nice friendly atmosphere on Orient Beach toward the Club O end. Delicious nachos and burgers if you are wanting that type of item. Leandra's son "Z" and his wife also work there so it is family operated. She is also aware of cooking gluten free if you... More

Great place for lunch. Whether you have the fish sandwich, grilled lobster, curry goat or oxtail stew you can't go wrong. This is a family owned and run business. They are from the island and not only have great food, but love talking about the island. Spent several lunches and afternoons here. Will definitely be back.

Wife and I spend the day at Orient Beach. We rented chairs from Chez Leandra and had a great day and fantastic lunch. Our server, Rochelle, was fantastic! I had creole fish, outstanding! Wife had ceaser wrap, also very good. Plantains were really good as well. Prices were very reasonable. Would make 2 suggestions - rake the seaweed in front... More
