Always good

We frequent Sunshines on regular basis. And we make sure it's one of our stops when friends and family visit. Their food is consistently good. Sunshine is usually at the restaurant and makes everyone feel welcome and that he appreciates their business. Great location and atmosphere.

Lobster salad and catch of the day were excellent. We had a Killer Bee drink and survived! Watched fresh seafood arrive for food preparAtion and even had a quick visit by monkeys. We got a free shelter and chairs at Pinney's Beach. Mixed crowd of locals,tourists from the island and people coming in from boats.

Fun beach bar with seating and views, and a short path away from the beach. Sunshine has made the "Killer Bee," a rum drink with a kick, famous, and we were told by some on the cruise ship that we would need to try it. Some walked from the cruise ship dock, but it was probably a 30 minute walk.... More

Fun night out and great food. We sat outside on the water. It was a beautiful evening. A little bit of everything on the menu and everything was good!

From your cruise ship, take the ferry from St. Kitts (walk to the first street from the dock, turn left, and you will find a big ferry at the next dock on your left), at Nevis (30-45 minutes later) hire a taxi driver to Pinney's beach, which is the Jamaica themed restaurant on your left when you get to the...

As others have said the lobster sand was very good, expensive, but tons if lobster. The killer bee was powerful but I thought it was a little too acid to be really good.

Great location, but crowded with tourists! Food OK, but monkeys run all around, even on tables on sand area. Sunshine has the killer bee drink, so "bee" careful - two may be more than you can handle, and you will feel stung!

This place is so dirty we were even hesitant to have a drink here. The staff is not attentive or friendly. Not sure what people see in this place.

When I visited the bar was understaffed. However that didn't excuse overcharging, incorrect change and aggression when questioned. The food is fine, and the beach is beautiful.

Our food was excellent but the service was lacking which took away from our entire experience. Very laid back atmosphere. Worth a try.
