Niravana is expensive for what it is. The location is OK its in a nice setting, hey this is St Kitts there are great views everywhere! Food is average. Its target customers are probably tourists. We had a buffet and the variety was poor, we don't do pile it high, as I am constantly on a diet. We prefer quality... More

We happened upon this place by following the rental car map, and we were glad we found it. The setting alone is worth the trip. The meal was good, the prices were not too high, and the bonus tour of the house and gardens made it a great value. A must visit!

Went to Nirvana in April of 2013 and enjoyed the ambiance and the salad I had for lunch. I returned again April of 2014 to find the food very disappointing. Ordered fish cakes which tasted like uncooked batter, the green salad was warm and the grilled fish on top was extremely salty. Even my pina colada was a watered down... More

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.
