What a lovely place. Three of us went in search of some good food in the off season. We were seated in the best table, although it was empty, and given first class service. The food was delicious and plentiful, unusually! The owner came out for a chat too. The only drawback was the cost. The view across the bay... More

The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, but the dinner was very expensive. The menu was not as refined as Marshall's, and most of the entrees were covered in sauce. The cocktail menu is limited for a tropical locale. Our meal was almost five hundred dollars for four children and three adults and they did not give a generous exchange rate... More

We came expecting good food and professional service based on the reviews and were not disappointed. My Panko-crusted Parmesan Mahi-Mahi over jasmine rice was well-prepared and accompanied by two tasty sauces. My spouse found the Lionfish special (also with jasmine rice and island vegetables) to be flavorful, but it contained some bones. The Banana Creme Brulee dessert was unspectacular (we... More

We had a dinner at Serendipity on Tuesday, July 7, 2015. This is really a nice little island restaurant. I would suggest reservations. As per usual in St. Kitts the staff of this restaurant was extremely nice and friendly which always adds to the experience. We had conch soup, spring rolls and pate for appetizers. Forget the spring rolls but... More

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 would be... 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
