Our group of 6 ate at Serendipity on Thursday night in June. This is a formal place, not as fancy as Marshall's but a bit fancier than most of the other restaurants on the Island. I had heard about their curried chicken and decided to try it. It was good but not exceptional. I guess I thought it... read more

The service was impeccable and we enjoyed appetizers, entrees and dessert. Having seen Lion fish in the Ocean we decided to try it as one of the appetizers and it was great! A very responsible way to remove an invasive fish in the ocean and serve as a food source. The fresh Mahi Mahi was amazing! What a great way... More

The building is an old manner house in a declining neighborhood. The service is first rate and the cooking is solid and varied. The clientele are the movers and shakers of the island as far as I can tell. There is an extensive menu including a chicken curry sauce, and a pasta with seafood and tomatoes, in a cream sauce,...

We were staying at Palm Court Gardens next door and walked over for dinner. The service was excellent! Our fish was super fresh and the preparation and presentation was exceptional! I enjoyed the grouper and my wife enjoyed the mahi-mahi. It was nice how all of the flavors blended so well together. I really enjoyed the soup of the day... More

A little more expensive than many of the other restaurants, but worth saving your pennies for! Beautiful view. Delicious Food. Recommended Reservation. Note: Lunch not available after 3:00 PM.

We arrived here just in time for lunch. Thankfully it was off season or I'm sure it would have been impossible to get a seat. Located just a few steps away from the amazing Palms Court, this place served some of the absolute best lionfish I'd ever had. The cocktails and staff are also amazing. There is love put in... More

My husband and I had a sweet tooth late at night and decided to try out Serendipity. It was so good that we went back later in the week!

This was by far, the best restaurant in St Kitts. The atmosphere overlooking the harbor, expertise of the chef and owner participation makes this a marvelous place to have a tasty dinner. I found this on TripAdvisor and was extremely pleased with the appetizers and dinner. Half way through dinner service we got a different wait staff and she explained... More

My wife and I just had just dessert at this restaurant the other day. It was just a few buildings away from where we were staying. We had the Apple and Blueberry (maybe? - berry of some sort) crumble with ice cream and it was worth the money.
