“Dinner at Carambola”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

the area is beautiful. The beach view, the dining area is all very well done.
The food was very good but the portion were small compared to what you
get at other restaurants. The service was very good also.

To me it is overpriced...you get less for more dollars.

“A gorgeous restaurant and beach club”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The setting is breathtaking! We were there for dinner and had a wonderful time and a great meal. Neither my wife nor I found anything to dislike. We will go back for a whole afternoon on our next trip to St. Kitts.

“GONE DOWNHILL”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This used to be my favorite restaurant one the island, but the last couple times I went it was just awful. I could cook a better steak than that. The service was also slower than it had been. Very unimpressed and sad that it went downhill so fast.

“stunning location and venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

This beautiful beach club is quite different to anywhere else I visited in St kitts.

The road up to South Friars bay is uneven and bumpy (fine for a normal car however!!) then suddenly tarmacked to Carambola!! Swish car park withnice gardens and well lit. Plenty of parking spaces.

Beautiful building, well though design, marble bathrooms and flooring, large bar area, huge restuarant and private dining area.
Oustide loads of seating areas as well as sunloungers and double day beds by the sand.
The beach itself is soft light coloured sand with shallow still water (most days).
They were child friendly on each of our visits.
We spent the evening of Christmas day watching the sunset and enjoying a swim and drinks on the beach - they even stayed open late for us!. We then returned for new years eve - an amazing 7 course meal with evening entertainment and fireworks.

I cant recommend this place highly enough, its hard to describe how lovely it really is - just go !!

“Must try food, location, and sushi!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

We simply loved this excellent restaurant! Make sure to go early enough to have a drink and watch sunset! Wait staff needed to be improved, however everyone was very nice. Special thanks to Tessa and Michael, they made a special night even better! Returned a second night because of first night experience. A must when in St. Kitts.
