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.

OK I do agree with some people on this forum that the waitresses can be a little surly and yes we can see they are shy but they aren't used to 5* establishments. Yes we started badly with the service and we complained to the front desk after our first meal but then it shot up to amazing service. I... More

Thanks for confirming that you had amazing service at the Oualie Beach Restaurant with perfectly cooked good quality food. You are absolutely right that our prices are the best value on the island. We really try to keep our prices affordable . As a result there is usually an interesting ecclectic mix of visitors, expats and locals in the bar... More

Pretty good food and prompt service. Recommended if you are on the north side of Nevis. Food is typical local, not fancy but filling. Atmosphere is beach-local.

I am pleased that you recommend Oualie Beach for good food and prompt service. However I must confess that we do still need to work more on consistency as my F&B staff can get a bit flustered when we get too busy. More

Nothing too fancy about this place, but it's right on the beach and there was live music. We sat in lawn chairs and watched the boats come in.

I am pleased that you enjoyed the Sunset drinks and view. Do try Oualie for a meal next time and I know that you will be delighted. We have live music usually on, Fridays and Saturdays until 10pm. On Tuesdays it is a bit more lively with a band until 11.30pm. More

I am pleased to report that we are now internationally certified as “hospitality assured”. However we do train our Oualie Beach staff to be of service rather than to be subservient. You live on island and must have learned by now that if you treat locals with basic respect then it is returned in good measure. Please visit us again... More

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.

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.

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
