“Golden Rock restaurant, best on Nevis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

If you have always wanted to dine in an opulent tropical 007 Bond setting, this is the place for you. The food is first class, excellent - priced well meaning great value for a surprisingly modest bill. The staff are elegant, Nevisian refined and very friendly. At first seemingly quiet and shy but once you show interest in their lives, they open up and are forthcoming about themselves and the island. (After all it isn't 'all about us' now is it) Coming from Europe where the Michelin star prevails, this restaurant easily meets the criteria without the pompous attitude. We will return. Beauty abounds and there is not one millimetre of visual that is not stunning. A must if you are to visit Nevis. And some reviews say it is "far"? It is difficult for me to comprehend that as the entire island is only 36 sqaure miles. Nowhere is far from anywhere else if you think a 20 minute drive is "far." Do visit. You will not be disappointed.

“The most beautiful place I've seen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

Ok I didn't get to eat here but had to say its absolutely the most beautiful place I have ever seen. The volcano in the back ground,flowers,birds, monkeys. It's a great stone building with big open orange doors, reflective pools with coy and lilly pads. Quite a place, will go stay someday.

“A long way out, but worth the trip!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

My wife and I had lunch at the Golden Rock Inn during a bike tour around the island. It's a unique setting on the island, with fabulous views from high above the Atlantic. The lobster sandwich was the best on the island! Worth making a trip.

“Best lobster salad, in a unique setting, great service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

Golden Rock gets better each year. The setting is fantastic, with wonderful gardens and old mill buildings tastefully repurposed. The lobster salad sandwich is worth the ride by itself. I am already plotting to pick one up before the flight home. Service is fast and attentive.

“Conch chowder”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Worth the trip for the conch chowder alone. Good fish and chicken sanwiches completed a lovely lunch on the open patio. The staff was attentive, but not overly so. Beautiful grounds best seen at lunch. We will try dinner on the next trip and will definitely return for lunch as well.
