We stayed at Nisbet for 4 nights and much enjoyed our meals at The Great House. The service is excellent, the atmosphere is intimate and romantic, and the food is impressive, albeit pricey, for such a small island. Do I think this place can beat a fresh seafood shack on the beach and dining with your toes in the sand?... More

We visited the resort to play on the beach and eat breakfast in the restaurant. We arrived at 8:00 in the morning and despite the fact that we were the ONLY people on the otherwise deserted beach, we were asked to stay below the high water mark and away from beach chairs and hammocks since those are reserved for guests...

The food was fine but we had better meals at Banana's bistro and golden rock inn. The manager and main maitre de were more interested in the hotel guests than customers not staying there. There are better choices when spending top dollar as far as creative food and friendly atmosphere.

The service and dinners at the Great House were one of the best parts of staying at the Plantation. It was so nice to realize I didn't have to leave to get the best food on the island.

A chance booking resulted in the most amazing food and ambiance of the whole trip. If you are looking for a fantastic experience then an evening at the great house is a must. The staff were excellent, Patterson in particular was so accommodating, ensuring our 18 month old daughter was entertained and looked after. We were initially concerned about taking... More

Our party of 8 visited last night for dinner. We go regularly when on Island and know many of the wonderful staff. There was a visiting chef from Puerto Rico, Marrisoll, who, with Chef Tony from Nisbets created the BEST meal I have ever eaten anywhere on Nevis since I started coming 15 years ago. There was a mango theme... More

We partook of not one but two Thursday night beach bbqs at Nisbet during our recent month-long stay in Nevis. From the welcoming rum punch or wine to the incredible dessert buffet everything was delicious. Our first visit was in mid-March, the end of the peak season. The place was packed and everyone seemed to be having a great time.... More

The Great House was our first dinner on Nevis and once we experienced all of the other restaurants we realized it was just average. Food is good, not great. Nothing remarkable. Service was ordinary with some hints of indifference. Skip this, there are better places on Nevis for food.

Don't be confused. The Great House is only open for dinner. Coconuts (only breakfast mainly for guests) and Sea Breeze (beach bar for lunch) are also at Nisbet and aren't bad but they are not the Great House. The Great House serves candlelit four course meals in a romantic historic plantation house. We ate there all five nights we were... More

We went to the beach bbq with another couple and could not have been more disappointed in the food. The buffet items were cold and of low quality. The seafood from the grill was served undercooked. We left in 45 minutes after a long taxi ride. The dessert table was an absolute joke (3 small desserts including a flan). Come... More
