We're not tourist and we've never had the pleasure of staying in Queen's Gardens Resort. Karen and I have a second home on Saba and have been visiting the island for over 30 years. We have had the sincere pleasure of spending several evenings dinning at Queen's Gardens Restaurant. Oh what an enjoyable pleasure that is! Queens Gardens Restaurant has this uniquely beautiful table securely located between two very large mango trees. It's called the "birds nest" and it is hands down the most romantic dinning table offering incredible cuisine that we've ever experienced. The ocean and village views are beyond spectacular. Karen and always arrive early and enjoy a relaxing glass of wine while enjoying a beautiful sunset. By the way, the "birds nest" is increasingly popular so reservations for this table are recommended if not essential.
A visit to Saba is all about being with nature and Queen's Gardens atmosphere is a tasteful marriage of a secondary rain forest and old Caribbean style with a bit of Dutch flair (Saba is a Dutch island after all). The restaurant and resort are nestled among lush tropical plants providing a soothing comfortable casual native atmosphere. What more could one ask for? Well...there's also the gourmet food and friendly knowledgeable staff too.
The moment we step out of our taxi, owner Claire is there to welcome us...and we barely know her! After being escorted to our table, the fun really begins as we enjoy a consistently exquisite meal that is more than impressive to a dining "foodies". You are guided through your meal by friendly professionals who add to your enjoyable evening. We even look forward to seeing them. It's just like being with good friends again.
We usually manage to visit Saba twice a year and with each visit we look for a reason to return to Queens Gardens Restaurant and the "birds nest". Karen and I are running out of anniversary excuses so perhaps we should return just because we want to. No doubt about it...we want to!
