Best dining experience. Quiet, delicious, and romantic! The views were tremendous. Get their a little early to walk around the plantation, during the daylight.

On our last day we went here for brunch before our flight. Limited menu but delicious food. Highly recommend the lobster salad - because it comes with something I have never had before. Banana fritters. To die for. Eggs Benedict was also fantastic. I would pass on the fish taco. Too small.

We came here on our last night on the island with another couple we met at outlet hotel. Beautiful location with what we heard are great views but we were there at night.

As a regular visitor to St Kitts, I always enjoy going for Sunday brunch to Ottleys. However, I was disappointed this time that they've discontinued the popular set brunch menu. Perhaps this was why we were the only ones in the restaurant (though one more table arrived just before we left. It's always been very busy on previous visits. The... More

Obviously, the two malcontents who just posted the vicious reviews of one of the finest restaurants in the Caribbean were either there as shills for a competitor or there to eat and drink and not pay for their dinner.

My friends gave me a Birthday party at Ottley's and I was surprised and happy since I had never been there before to eat.

Thank you for visiting tripadvisor and commenting. Long lasting memories of a happy birthday party is a huge compliment. The staff and I truly appreciate your words. We try to make "love" be the first ingredient in all we do... it sounds hokey, but it tends to produce good results. More

I travel at least twice a year and eat out weekly. In addition I have been in the restaurant business. When I went to have dinner there last week I was very disappointed with the food.

Perhaps, a shill? We will never know. One can not please all of the people all of the time. In fact, I do not trust any business that has ALL 100% positive things to say.... because there is always someone who is not satisfied.
