Nice place good food

I'm sure, when the wind isn't gale force, the view would be quite lovely. As it was, the plastic wind/ rain shields were up. So, we stayed dry and warm. The staff was very nice and attentive.I had the shrimp and scallops. They were perfectly cooked, which, for some reason, is difficult to... read more

Simply the best meal while on St. Kitts. We had a party of 8 (4 couples) and had the best time and food. We arrived after dark and the view of the lights over the water was very nice. Service was great and the Lobster and grouper were delicious. We also ate at Marshall's and the Spice mill while on... More

Lovely owner & conch chowder. The view of the capital at night was really stunning. Avoid the tiger shrimp due to portions.

Delicious Food, Attentive Service, Nice Evening Setting. Will definitely return. We were a party of 14, mostly ex-pats with a few Kittitians, 2 eleven year old boys, and 1 tourist. Dinner was at 7pm. Beautiful night view above the harbor of Basseterre and the glowing hillside of Bird Rock beyond. Dinners ranged from $30 to about $45 US each once... More

A little tired but good average food with a view to remember. Hard to find if you are driving yourself. The type of place you could chill out in your shorts very relaxing and not all tourists.

It's a $16 taxi ride from the hotel one way. The ambiance is unbeatable as you overlook the city and port. Food was pretty good.

Nice wine. Conch chowder, vegetable samosas, mussels marineure & the grilled grouper w/ salad were all excellent. Cesar salad sub par (dressing made w/ mayo & not traditional EVO & egg) Service was great but is slow which we didn't mind since this was the only plan we had for the day. Very nice hilltop view of town & harbor.... More

Our hotel recommended this Basseterre restaurant. Service was charming & the setting pleasant with sweeping views across the town & sea. Things started well with a tasty amuse bouche but thereafter food was disappointing. My shrimp dish tasty but hefty, the rice accompaniment dense & overcooked, veggies sorry & limp. The best course was a steak as this was simply... More

This restaurant is one of my favourites in the world the location is stunning and the food magnificent. Run by a Yorkshire lady, who when you get to know her is the best! Please if you are going to St Kitts, do not miss Serendipity
