The setting is stunning! Excellent meal with excellent service. Marty, one of the proprietors, came to our table to visit and ensure all was well. The sweet potato soup was delicious, and we had a well-made Margarita to start the meal. I wish the pecan pie for dessert was served warm, but otherwise a perfect tropical meal. It is on... More

The physical setting is fantastic and the quality of ingredients but the ambience is destroyed by an insistence on playing piped music. The connection between the meal described and the meal served with that chosen and served can at times be weak. If you want a quiet and relaxed meal this may not be the best choice - depending of...

We stayed at Ottleys Inn for 4 nights, and ate at the restaurant every night. The service is really excellent, the staff are just so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We loved the food here, and the atmosphere is great. If you are staying on the island, but not at Ottleys, then you should consider getting a taxi... More

Each night at the restaurant seemed like we were transported back to a time when guests were treated like royalty, and the food was out of this world. Hats off to the crew at Ottleys… job well done! Tom and Michele Hill

The Ottley Plantation is the home of the Royal Palm Restaurant. We had an early dinner there on Christmas Eve, and almost everything was perfect. We shared a salad that was just enough for two. They did serve bread, but it was a little like eating white bread from the grocery store. My husband ordered the pork tenderloin which he... More

We shoot for better than AMOST, but happy to know almost is good enough for you. FYI, we bake ALL of our bread... and change it daily. Sometimes it's: Buttermilk, Herb bread, West Indian dark bread (molasses), Onion.... not sure what you were served, but must say we are horrified to think that it could have tasted like packaged bread...

We enjoyed the lovely grounds with rainforest trails available. The ladies Janice and Skekena were so welcoming. We waited in the lounge with its wonderful views for a 12 noon lunch service. Diners have the option of a rum punch greeting - we opted for soda. The adjacent table seemed pleased with theirs- judging from the gradual increase in loquaciousness... More

Had one of our best meals of the week on St. Kitts. Elegant outdoor patio with attentive service. We were there at night so can't comment on the grounds (which are supposed to be beautiful), but the plantation style hotel was beautifully lit. Wonderful food.
