A must!

Every time we are in Nevis I have to take the family to Golden Rock for their Lobster sandwich. I even buy my son two of them to tide him over until our next visit... The views are spectacular and the staff is friendly! Say hello to bartender, Sam! Another must is to take the hike up the mountain... read more

On a day trip to Nevis while on vacation in St Kitts, we asked 2 residents who were on the ferry over to the island for a lunchtime recommendation. Without hesitation they said that we HAD to have lunch at Golden Rock Plantation and to be sure to have the lobster sandwich - one of the best on the island.... More

We have visited many times and this sandwich is so good, I get it every time. Over the years it is consistently good. The grounds have been upgraded but my favorite spot is still the gardens. The views are spectacular and the gardens are more beautiful each year.

The meal at the Golden Rock was superb. Conch chowder was thick and full of conch. The mahi mahi was a substantial portion perfectly prepared and flavorful. Desserts were common favorites but the chocolate cake was done to perfection. The service was friendly and attentive. The property is beautiful, an excellent setting for a fine meal.

This was the most beautiful restaurant location in all of Nevis. High on a hillside with gorgeous sunset views. The service was impeccable, relaxed, and friendly. We were there during peak season, so made reservations, but they would not have been necessary. There were only 2 or 3 other coup,es between 6:00 and 8:00. I highly recommend the coconut creme...

If on Nevis, then this a place you ought to have seen. Plan in some extra time to walk through the premesise, as it is almost as well kept as the botanical garden, only with all the heritage that goes with the plantation and sugar mill. Try out their Lobster Salad, ideally in the garden and not patio, looking out... More

We dined here and it is truly a hidden gem. Breathtaking, great history and fabulous food. The grounds are beautiful with flowers and gardens in abundance.

This gem is located up on the hillside in an old plantation in Nevis. The location is wonderful tucked in amongst the forest. You can choose to sit under the great orange canopy or choose one of many other tables located throughout the multiple garden levels. The original building, in part , has been preserved. A bit of retro decor... More

Nevis is the quietest laid back island in the caribbean. Avoid the 4 seasons, only for the fancy folks. We were a group of 8, hired a local guide, she is the only female guide, TC, married a man from Nevis 24 years ago. She is from London, England, funny as hell as knows everything about the island. Anyhow, back... More

The views are stunning on this property. We spent at least an hour after our meal exploring. Too bad the service didn't match the setting. Our server was a mix of aloof and surly until the end. There were other nicer servers there so I think we just got unlucky. My meal was delicious and a good portion. I would... More
