Adjacent to historical Fairview Estate Nirvana may not get the traffic it should. We had only a snack which was a delight. How many times have you had sweet potato fries with banana catsup? Or meat patties with papaya sauce?

The house and garden is really worth seeing--come for lunch and get the real treat: pumpkin dumplings! So very good--especially after a watermelon martini.

Please be advised, if you eat here, you are more than welcome to use the swimming pool--wish we had known that as we would have definitely taken them up on the offer. The food was excellent, the service outstanding and the views from the restaurant overlooking the ocean were beautiful. Be sure you "tour" the main house--full of beautiful antiques--decorated...

The menu was actually simpler than I had expected but quite varied even for lunch. The usual excellent seafood selection you find on St. Kitts.

We were escorted through the grounds and Great House by Doreen. She is pleasant, knowledgeable about the history of the Great House, knows the names of plants in the gardens, and knows how to grow them. She is an asset and what my husband and I call a "keeper". After the tour we enjoyed lunch at the restaurant, Nirvana. The... More

I couldn't believe how delicious the food was, we are definitely coming back, we went on a cruise and took the culinary tour over there, the place is gorgeous, i have never seen so many beautiful flowers in one place. We highly recommend this place.

I was trying to set up a cooking class and our cruise ship didn't offer one except on the ship, which we had already done. I checked around and found this restaurant offered one, and sent an e-mail. Unfortunately, they were unable to set up a class while we were there unless they could get at least 6 people, which... More

Four of us from our family vacation group traveled to Nirvana for lunch. My daughter and I had been there before and agreed that this restaurant situated in an old plantation house and former hotel was one of our island favorites. We ordered a couple watermelon martinis, tea and a local beer. The martinis were excellent with small bits of... More

Nirvana restaurant is by far one of the best restaurants on the island of St. Kitts. I am a student at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine and I went to Nirvana while my parents were here visiting. I went on Sunday for the West Indian Buffet and the food was delicious, so fresh and the view from the restaurant... More
