After having the restaurant highly recommended we had dinner here. It was a "special" menu for Valentines Day. My duck was just ok with lots of noodles and my husband's seafood dish also used a large amount of noodles. His soup was very good. It was a long cab ride from our hotel for an okay dinner.

Location, location is the beginning. It is lovely though not close at hand. The gardens were a joy. We found the menu interesting and the resultant meal just what was required. So sorry we did not have time to linger,

My wife and I, and another couple, spent a week here, and we all had dinner here every night -- why? There's no better restaurant in St. Kitts. We all skipped the meal plan at Ottley's only because four courses each dinner was simply too much for us -- we all wound up ordering an appetizer and a main at... More

Had lunch at Ottley's and, if one wanted to get away from the crowds in a beautiful setting, this would be the place. The food and drinks were good but only saw the Plantation from afar but it looked beautiful and guests told us service and setting were lovely. It is a 30 minute ride from all the rest of... More

Usually, those three words don't go together. However, this place is the exception. A truly wonderful dining experience. The location is if I have a 20 minute ride from the airport but you enter a whole different world. This is a classic plantation on a hill. Get there early, while there is still light, so you can walk the grounds,... More

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. Food was great, service was great and the owner stopped by to make sure everything was to our liking. A must do if you visit St. Kitts.... More
