While on Nevis, we were recommended to check out the pig roast at the Hermitage. The hotel grounds were beautiful, with gorgeous views of Nevis Peak. The food was delicious, and besides the pig there were many side dishes to choose from. It reminded us of Thanksgiving dinner! We did not walk away hungry. The owner was there to give us a brief description of each dish. You can tell he takes alot of pride in The Hermitage and he cares about the happiness of his guests.

Having been to most if the recommended restaurants on the island whilst staying at the four seasons, the hermatige is by far the worst. We waited till wed eve to catch the pork toast that was in fact a let down in pretty much every respect. I will say that I did not do my research in enough detail to work out that there is only one choice of appetiser and desert on pig roast day and that out of the four of us that went to dinner only one ate the appetizer and two ate desert. As for the entree of pig roast with salad, rice, veg etc, this was at best a second rate amateur BBQ effort not to be repeated. I do hope for the owners sake that this was an unfortunate misunderstanding as all other ratings seem ok.. I should note this is only the second time I have used trip advisor but believed it necessary to share my thoughts here. The only other occasion was to sing the praises of a specific hotel in India.

What a pretty little resort with wonderful food! The restaurant has a comfortable and interesting décor with a lot of history. The family that owns the Hermitage is very friendly and welcoming.

So glad we had the opportunity to attend the Wednesday night pig roast. Just having dinner at a plantation was an experience but to gather with others for cocktails and a pig roast was a great experience. The grounds of the Hermitage are just beautiful and the food amazing. With a mix of traditioanl English and West Indian foods, you won't go home hungry! Very reasonably priced.

What a surprise! When making the reservation, I thought it would be fun but not nearly as charming as we discovered. The table settings were elegant. Small lights framed the arches of the open windows overlooking a garden. Get there early to enjoy the quaint bar. The dinner was presented on the dining room table, and we helped ourselves to a variety of dishes. I don't eat pork but there was plenty of other selections. We felt like we were guests in someone's home.
*** I do not recommend driving to the Hermitage. Get a cab! It's located in the hills and would be difficult to find.
