Whilst on a cruise we visited Fairview Great House and were entertained and well fed by a Cookery Demontration hosted by the Chef from Nirvana Restaurant. Following a tour of Fairview we were very comfortably housed in a demonstration kitchen and were superbly looked after by the Chef who was enthusiastic to share with us his recipes exemplifying the very...

What a shame this lovely restaurant offering really good Chinese food is closing down. I guess because its a little way out of Basseterre the other side of Ross Vet School. Wonderful views (formerly The Fairview Inn). Good service and wine list - typically for the Caribbean the best does not always prevail.

My wife an I had dinner last night at Nirvana. The food was superb. The chicken satay was cooked perfectly, the green curry vegetables was exceptional as well. The service was perfect, our items were brought to us piping hot and in the "right" timing between courses. Kudos to Mokesh and the staff - we will be back soon!!!

The setting is beautiful and the building is lovely and well maintained. My wife and I both found the food to be average. Not bad mind you but certainly not inspired. The initial service was prompt and friendly but after our orders were taken we didn't see our waitress until we had finished our meals. The meals are moderately priced... More

Having recently been on St. Kitts we saw that Nirvana was a highly rated Asian restaurant and we decided to give it a try. It was by far our favorite restaurant on the island. The restaurant itself is located at the Fairview Great House, a restored Mansion from the colonial era with beautiful panoramic views of the ocean and a... More

Lovely old home now a restaurant. Lovely ocean view. Pretty grounds. Nice little tour. Gracious hosts. Everything they made was great. My husband even liked the fish. ( a miracle) We had a great time and I highly recommend this cooking class. We booked this on our own. I understand some cruise ships offer the cooking class as an excursion.... More

This beautiful old estate mansion and adjoining buildings is not on the beach as one review has suggested. Nor is it close to the Ocean in island terms as another has suggested. It's as high up on the hill as you can go on a road, before heading into the Rain Forests above. The restaurant seating is open air, looking... More

Had a great meal! The portions were large and it was very reasonably priced. I don't really like Chinese food but this was great! The owner was so nice and personable. Would recommend for something other than fish and steak.
