We ate here for 9 nights and discovered the menu is repeated after 7. However, all the food options are good, of excellent quality and served by very friendly staff. Of special note, the fish is fresh and the king prawns succulent and tasty. The restaurant claims to serve a Champagne Sunday Brunch buffet, but on our occasion it was... More

Spent our tenth anniversary in St Kitts. ON our Anniversary we decided to check out the Royal Palm and Ottley's Plantation Inn. What a place! Quiet, relaxing, beautiful. Nothing to hear but the soft sounds of doves cooing in the palms. We're going to have to try and stay here next time. Food and service at restaurant were incredible. Menu... More

During our visit to St Kitts and Nevis we visited at least 7-8 different restaurants between the two islands and we can safely say that this the staff at the Royal Palm Restaurant were the friendliest and the most attentive of all. The food was just as good as the service. Both breakfast and dinner were delicious. The menu was... More

Wonderful place for lunch! I recommend the fish tacos as they were amazing! Friendly helpful staff and such a beautiful property. If you have some extra time take the 15 walk through their beautiful rain forest trail and if you are lucky you may see Monkeys!

This venue is in my top 3 places to visit on St Kitts. Superb location and view towards the sea, wonderful gardens and plantation buildings, great food, and excellent customer service - we went twice on our visit and were extremely well served by Zandra who was extremely courteous and friendly. Highly recommended and a must visit location.

Dear MarkBoorman The fact that your came twice during your stay is a huge compliment and clearly a sincere endorsement. Thank you for your recommendation and for mentioning Zandra by name, she is a lovely woman and deserves acknowledgement. We have learned, no place can get it "right" 100% of the time.

In late March 2016 my husband, Guy and I cruised the Southern Caribbean with the hope and intention of eating as much good Caribbean food as possible.

The trip to Ottley's Plantation is an adventure best experienced during the daytime so that you can see the sights along the way. We were going for dinner and decid d to get there early to see the views, which are breathtaking. It also made the drive home easier having driven up before sunset. The restaurant is quite large, as... More

We had lunch at the Royal Palm at Ottley's Plantation while on our visit to St Kitts and it was our favorite meal on the trip. The owners came by twice to make sure that all of our needs were met.
