Charming service, great food!

We discovered Poinciana on our recent visit to St Kitts. This restaurant is very close to the Marriott (in the former location of La Belle Vie) but the atmosphere far exceeds anything along the strip near the hotel. The goat cheese salad is simply excellent! The entrees were fresh and delicious... read more

Now named Poinciana. Appetizer of mussels was good as was goat cheese salad. Main course of lobster was tough, shrimp and scallops was good and mahi mahi which was the fresh catch of the day was bland and dry. Dessert was Ok but we felt that for $216 US for 3 people we had better food at the Marriott for... More

We arrived kind of late on a Thursday & only one other party remained from the dinner hour. We were seated quickly & our server was pleasant & attentive without being annoying. It's an outdoor seating setup. A kind-of porch if you will that was nice & comfortable. Nothing fancy yet more formal than most of the alternatives in the... More

On a trip to St. Kitts in March my husband and I dined one evening at La Belle Vie. Although we did not have a reservation, we were able to be seated on the beautiful outdoor covered deck, which was kept surprisingly comfortable by large overhead fans. The atmosphere is very pleasant, the staff were very attentive and professional and... More

We visit St. Kitts yearly and one of our favorite restaurants on the island is La Belle Vie. Service is superb and the food is always the finest quality and delicious. Celebrated my husband's birthday there .Thank you for a great meal. Btw, the creme brûlée is the best!

We enjoyed a wonderful evening at La Belle Vie. The food was delicious as was the wine. This place doesn't look much from the road but you really need to go inside where the aromas from the kitchen will have your mouth watering in no time. The waiter & owner were both very attentive. Would definately recommend you visit this... More

We had a very pleasant evening at ‘La Belle Vie’. We decided to go there as the menu was generally based on traditional French dishes and we really enjoy French food. The dining area was set outside under a covered area, which meant there was a cool breeze cooling the diners. We were not disappointed by any of our courses.... More

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... 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
