Best restaurant we visited in St Kitts

Spent 6 nights in St Kitts, and this was BY FAR our favourite restaurant - better than the Plantation Inn that tends to appear at the top of the list for this island! It does not look special from the road, but there is a lovely terrace to eat on with lots of fans to provide a breeze, and it... read more

We had a great meal at La Belle Vie last week. We came over from the Marriott, very short cab ride or nice walk. 2 of us had the dinner special for the evening, starting off with a lovely Alsatian onion tart, followed by the daily fresh fish special. Others had the salmon and chicken. All of the dishes were... More

Our family of 5 ate here while on vacation at the Marriott on St. Kitts. The food was delicious, however we had trouble with bugs and came home with lots of bug bites on legs. We also had to wait a very long time for our food. The people were kind and friendly, and they had a real Christmas tree... More

Wonderful meal. My husband and I have dined here a few times while in St Kitts. The goat cheese salad, while sounds simple, is amazing. Don't miss it. I also really love the lamb and the pork dishes. The owner really cares about his food and the customers. The head waiter Winston is also really great, he makes the experience... More

Let me start by saying we are in the Islands...that being said, this was a FANTASTIC meal. The restaurant is nice with an island atmosphere which keeps the air cool and the environment tolerable in the tropics. It is not overly romantic or fancy BUT that does not take away from the food or service. Michelle who is the owner... More

Who would have thought that I would be praising a French restaurant in St Kitts? Here I am though letting you know that you will be greeted by the smiling and knowing Parisian, Michelle at his restaurant just a stones throw from the Marriott hotel. The atmosphere is French "lite" and the food world class, believe me I have eaten... More

the owner Michelle greeted us and took our order after making recommendations. There were specials which some at our table ordered which were great. I shared the French onion soup which was not to salty and the cheese was melted within the soup. The mussels were fabulous and the sauce they were served with was eaten with the homemade bread...

We had a birthday celebration dinner here and were greeted warmly by Michel the owner. Our dinner was superb, I loved the mille feuilles vegetable appetizer, and the beef tenderloin with blue cheese sauce was also delicious! Nothing was too much trouble and we will return here as often as we can.

The food is amazing and as we went for my birthday with a large group, the owner printed out specially made birthday menus for my friends and I! The goat cheese salad was the best thing ever.

went to dinner on a try per hotel. What a poor experience! The food was fine, but the owner ruined the dinner. Asked if they ever had escargot, pate, or frog legs, as famous in France...and he informed me "no because you needed to kill the animals first". He was arrogant, demeaning, and felt no reason to be polite to... More
