Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. The perfect dining location right on the beach. Reservations are recommended in the high season. Unlike most restaurants, we insist on serving FRESH FISH. Lobster, Tuna, Wahoo and Mahi Mahi are brought right into our dock from the game fishing boats and kept on ice, never frozen. We believe in promoting "farm to the plate" and work closely with local farmers to ensure a FRESH supply of vegetables and salads. Our local tomatoes are ridiculously tasty!. We work with the Ministry of Agriculture on the supply of locally grown , grass fed, organic beef and have created the demand for a tender, tasty hybrid cross between the Zebu and Red Pole cattle breeds. Again this is always FRESH and never frozen. Our dinner menu changes daily to incorporate what local foods are available and always has at least one Gluten free and one Vegan dish.

Oualie was the closest beach to our villa, so it was easy to walk down to with the kids. They had a couple of great lunches at the restaurant but the adults never seemed to make it past the bar. Homemade Ginger Beer was outstanding with a little rum.

The Restaurant is clean and tidy, the menu has plenty of options and the Fish is caught daily with all the food freshly cooked. The Staff are very friendly. We ate in the restaurant all week as staying at the Oualie Beach Resort and never had a disappointing meal all week.

I am surprised by your response as Oualie was just awarded certification by the prestigious Hospitality Assured out of the UK. There are only 26 hotels in the Caribbean that have acheived this status. However I can imagine some of the younger, timid waitresses getting flustered by an unusual or unfamiliar restaurant request and you mistaking this for surliness, not... More

I am almost left speechless at the staggeringly bad meal we have just paid 120 US dollars for (for two, no wine). More fool me for having paid it I suppose. A buffet where the hot food was stone cold, all the fish and ribs had gone, only dried out chicken available, and no desserts left. The only saving grace... More

I do apologize that you did not enjoy your experience with us. Tuesday evening is the only night that we serve a buffet. Guests have a choice of dining outside under the stars steps from the beach or in our open air restaurant. All other evenings (besides Tuesday) are “a la carte” which you would probably have found more suitable... More

The food is good but expensive ( as is most of the other restaurants on the island). The dining atmosphere is lovely as its located directly on the beach. Worth at least a visit for lunch or dinner or just to relax at the bar.

We are delighted that you enjoyed our food and found our beach location to be lovely. It does help being located on the best beach in the Federation ! You are right that food prices on island are high. Many items are still imported and as we dont pay any income tax, the Government has to charge duty and VAT... More

Stopped here twice for a rum punch and lunch before stepping onto the beautiful beach. Lunch was delicious and they make one of the best Rum punches on the beach. The view is beautiful.

We walked down to the Oualie last night on our first night in Nevis. Since we will be eating out a lot over the fortnight I am being moderate in my rating (I am an enthusiast so have a high scoring tendency). We will go back - that's a big tick. We were greeted very warmly by Tim. No problem... More
