We went to lunch here on a late Sunday afternoon. There were three generations in our group…from 5 to 75. Everyone had a blast. The people watching was extraordinary. Great dancers to watch too. The food was delicious. Our server could not have been better...or nicer. We were not a wild group spending megabucks on magnums but we were treated equally well. The younger people in our party danced on the tables and were thrilled to do it. Some of the other guests were so kind to our girls…asking them to dance with them on the sand and giving them high fives. It was a wonderful afternoon and experience all around.More

We went on a Friday at 3pm, everyone told us that Sunday was the day to go for the true Nikki Beach vibe but we were leaving before then and wanted to make sure we could visit. Beautiful spot, we only did lunch and the...restaurant was pretty empty with maybe only 15% full. Our server didnt seem to have many tables but she was very absent. I didnt see her at other tables so not sure where she was. She would ask us for if we wanted an item and we would say yes and she would never come back and bring it. We ordered a bottle of rose Starter: Rainbow Roll Mains: Truffle Pizza (amazing), and scallops and risotto (okay, not worth the price) DJ was playing but it was pretty empty so seemed a little awkward. Wish we had a better server but overall good and we would go back.More

We had lunch at Nikki Beach. Views are beyond gorgeous. Ambiance is fun and food is delicious too. Our waitress was super pretentious and was trying to push a $400 bottle of rose. She said if we didnt order a bottle, service could take a...long time. Our whole week at St Barts was full of top notch service and great service. This was the low point unfortunately. Its a fun place to visit but they should really improve that piece. People are spending anyway. They dont need to be pushy and rude.More

We were unable to have a Sunday lunch reservation, even with a 5 week ahead attempt…..Maybe because it was the Bucket Tall Ships event…. So we had a walk in table for lunch on a Monday. It was not the party of a Sunday afternoon,...but still fun and busy. The renovated Nikki is absolutely gorgeous. A must while in St Barts!!More

We landed in the airport on a Sunday and went directly to Nikki beach. Sunday is the best day to go. It was packed. The food was great, the drinks were great, nba player was there, staff was great, other guests were great…it was all...great. One of my best memories. Such an amazing experience!!More

What a fabulous experience! We went on Sunday which is the special day when they have dancing on the tables. Our hotel suggested we go at 3:30 P.M. The environment is so much fun to be apart of. It was truly a sight to see...people dancing on tables, singing and just having a great time. The music was amazing! The drinks were delicious and the food was very good. Our waitress was very attentive and provided great service. Be sure to make reservations way in advance for Sunday. I heard there was a long waitlist to get in. This experience was truly a highlight of our trip to St. Barths.More

Booked lunch on a Sunday at 330pm. I was a bit apprehensive. No issues with service. Not sure why soo many poor reviews. Check in was smooth, wait staff were personable and professional. Not pushy at all. Crowd was variable re: demographics. Food : really...good. Edamame , Spicy Tuna Roll. Salad and Peri Peri Chicken all were great and well priced. No complaints . We had a fun afternoon people watching.More

Unlike never failing to be disappointed about the food at other Nikki Beach I’ve been around the world, the food here was actually pretty good. The 1* rating here comes because of hostess Linda, who was extremely rude, snappy, unwelcoming and with telling me “f*ckn...- city where I’m from - people” trying to get at me because of where I come from? For real? Drinking on the job with her waitress co-worker who was at the same poor attitude level as Linda. Inattentive, bringing the wrong drinks from what I’ve ordered didn’t help her presence either. I was a paying customer and I should never feel this level of unwelcome at a restaurant ever. No one should experience an attitude like hers from a hospitality worker. Her job is to make sure people feel welcome but failed at that like I’ve never seen before with an attitude that’s completely unacceptable. Seeing more reviews like this about Linda here the management should consider getting her fired. She’s bad for business. I will never come back.More

Unfortunately, this is a complaint. I was at the St Barths restaurant on Thursday 30 Dec. Overall I had a great time as did my family and friends. I am a semi-permanent resident of St Barths and have been to Nikki Beach many times. Firstly,...I ordered a bottle of Miraval Rose and it was knocked over in the ice bucket. We had drunk perhaps 1/4 of the bottle (at most). I served myself as the service was not great and found water in the wine. I asked for a replacement (as I had not knocked over the wine). They pour a glass each (so 2 glasses) and then disappeared with the rest of the bottle. I said that was unreasonable as I was paying for a full bottle ... they eventually gave me the rest of the bottle. When they did this, I was made to feel like it was such a special honour to have the bottle replaced. In fact, the waiter was very belittling of me. At the end of the evening, the waitress asked me for a tip. This is St Barths (French) and I said I will leave cash if I feel like it was worth it. She waited as if I was meant to leave the tip there and then. We were not leaving at that point as I was enjoying the evening with my wife and 20+-year-old children. Around 10 minutes later another waitress came up, claiming she was the manager, and spoke extremely close to me (as in 10 cm) saying that I was banned from the restaurant for not leaving a tip. I was shocked ... Firstly, this is Covid times and I don't want to catch anything from someone who is that close and secondly, I don't believe I am compelled to leave a tip, especially as I had not left the table. I then spoke to the manager, Jerome, who proceeded to denigrate my side of the story (even if backed up by my wife). I spent close to EUR 1,000 on the evening and was asking for nothing, just good service. He ended up following me out of the established, pointing to the Nikki Beach sign and indicating to me that I could not come back. This makes me think I am in another world. I am more than shocked by this treatment. Suffice to say, I am not a one-time visitor and as a property owner on St Barths was beyond surprised. Visit at your own perilleMore

Waitstaff was sparse the day we came for lunch, so service was very slow. The sushi was delicious when it finally arrived.

We had lunch at Nikki Beach at the recommendation of friends who have previously been there. The food was average, the prices were high (for a minimalist lunch), and the fun/party ambiance just wasn't. Nice setting looking at the beach, but overall a big disappointment,

Nikki Beach is a terrific place to spend an afternoon drinking rose and just smiling. The food is great. The service is even better (thank you Christophe). They are warm and welcoming whoever you are. We certainly aren’t the most glamorous couple, but they gave...us a fantastic table near the sand, perfect for being a part of everything. Saturdays usually have a DJ and a sax player who encourages the guests to dance (sometimes on the tables) and enjoy! Come beach fabulous!More

Everybody goes to Nikki beach for the ambience, but the food is actually exceptionally good! We are a family of six and ordered a multitude of options and everybody was happy with every dish. The food was delicious, with beautiful presentations, generous portion sizes, and...excellent service to boot! The green shrimp bowl and vegetarian sushi were my choices and I delighted in every bite. My daughters octopus salad was the best she’s ever had. The setting of Nikki beach in Saint Barts is perfect… stylish and cool. Of course the deep house beats by the DJ, and the eye-candy all around, help create a memorable experience and one that we will want to repeat on every trip to St. Barths!More

During high season you will have to give up your table. Advice: Rent a beach bed for the day and move to that after your seating. You still get great drink service and can party hard.
