After a number of years we recently returned to Nevis for our second visit, and we knew we had to dine again at the Hermitage Plantation since our experience there during our first visit had been so memorable. In fact, because we have enjoyed the place so much, we dined there twice on this trip even though we were only... More

We went to the Hermitage for the Wednesday night pig roast. Everyone gathers in the old plantation house for cocktails. You automatically feel part of the crowd. The surroundings are genteel, like you've been transported back in time. We had a table out on the porch. We were ushered to the buffet where the owner explained all the dishes (many).... More

It was a beautiful day with just the right amount of breeze and the Rum punch was the perfect ratio of punch and rum with nut meg sprinkled... More

Wednesday night buffet at the historic Hermitage should not be missed. Extremely interesting items well prepared at a very well organized buffet table in a historic dining room that makes you feel that Martha Washington asked you over for a buffet. The items on the buffet were very representative of island cuisine but I have not seen them on other... More

Do not waste anytime on Sunday. Go straight to the Hermitage for brunch for the best Johnny cakes, french toast and juices you can ever have!

Not only was the food sumptuous, but the presentation was creative and unique. I don't usually care for bread pudding, but their's is to-die-for! The school choir that serenaded us was very good. Not only were they in sync, but they were audible and in tune with each other. it's obvious they were well rehearsed.

The restaurant is on the grounds of the Hermitage Plantation Inn in Gingerland. We stopped at the bar on the way to our table to have a glass of wine. After bumping into the owner, we stayed for a second glass & a nice 30 minute conversation on his ownership history with Hermitage . We then proceeded to our table... More

We enjoyed the wood-fired pizza, a Friday night special here, as well as the rum punch. The staff was friendly and helpful. The atmosphere's elegant enough for a great date, but also quite family friendly. The passion fruit cheesecake is to die for!

The Hermitage is an original 17th Century plantation house and a must visit for the architecture and history alone. It is set in beautiful gardens throughout which are scattered the old chatel houses which provide the accommodation for the guests. The plantation house itself has a series of small rooms furnished in 17th and 18th century styles which must be... More
