This is a great place. We went for dinner with a group of 16 and not one person was disappointed. That says it all. The chef can cater to a multitude of food preferences. Good for vegetarians too. The menu gives lots of choice and you can eat light or go all out. That night there was more than one... More

My wife and I ate there on our last night in St. Kitts. We each ordered a salad and dinner. The salads were large enough to be a meal themselves. When our dinners came, we were overwhelmed by the size of the lobster for my wife and the amount of paella on my plate. My wife said it was the... More

This is one of the better restaurants. Service is great. Make a reservation if you can but if you go early you really don't need to.

This was the best restaurant within walking distance off the Marriott property. The service was spectacular. You had several gentleman serve your table and bring your drinks/food with occasional conversation and check on customer satisfaction. My husband loved their chicken dishes; I tried the Lion Fish special with risotto. The second night, I tried the paella from the menu. OMG... More

The most incredible plate of seafood I have ever had at a more than reasonable price. Extremely friendly service and relatively speedy for island time, ha!

Easy walking access from the Marriott and the food was very good! The lobster was huge and the prepared just right. The Mahi-mahi was excellent and could have been split for two. Try the "lion fish" it was a great treat !

All dinners served to our family group of eight were excellent. For me, the seafood fettuccini was so good, I returned a second time and ordered it again even though the menu is extensive. Small and quaint. Closed on Wednesdays. Make a reservation. Definitely one of the best in Frigate Bay for taste of food.

The service is very fast and very friendly. Wife had the bacon, feta and avocado salad and it was a very generous portion, enough for lunch the next day. My fish and chips was Huge! I'd suggest passing on the conch fritters as they were benign. Nice people with a nice restaurant. Our original waiter copped an attitude but one... More
