We have eaten here on a previous visit and the food was good. This time we just called in for a lunch-time drink. Marvellous! It was difficult to find though as the signs peter out there is no informational or welcoming sign on the gate !

We went for the Wednesday night buffet. The grounds are lovely to walk and then a drink at the bar before 8pm buffet. The restaurant was beautifully lit for the dinner crowd, the night peepers & birds added to the relaxing atmosphere. The buffet was incredible. I was previously assured vegan options for me and that was so very true.... More

We were recommended to eat in on our first night staying here. It was the weekly Caribbean hog roast with a huge selection of local delicacies to sample from a well presented and informative buffet. Definitely a good recommendation.

Hermitage Plantation is a small boutique hotel that every Wednesday does a pig roast at 8:00pm. It's fun, the food is good, and the dinning room was the nicest we saw in our week of dinning out in Nevis. My omly (very) small complaint would be that the wine served as cocktail when you arrive and wait for dinner to... More

A group of us went to the Hermitage for their buffet and we were not disappointed. We were warmly greeted by the staff and taken to our table where the waitress and the manager explained how the meal would proceed and gave some history of the plantation. As we entered the dining room to fill our plates, the manager gave... More

portions are huge and you will leave on the heavier side. Dining in the grounds in the veranda of the main house adds charm, staff are excellent and prices in range with this style of hotel/restaurant.

Sunday lunch, just perfect or just perfect. Taking lunch in an original part of the building over looking the gardens with Puccini playing in the background, does life get any better? No! Food was really good, another place which would have merited a return visit, but time did not permit

A great menu with local twist in this jewel of a restaurant. Service is personal and friendly. muesli, yoghurt, bread and sausages are homemade and it shows. Great selection. Breakfast on Sunday is a buffet, pk for those who want mountains of food but we much prefer the weekdays when everything is cooked/prepared to order. We never visit Nevis without... More

Wonderful food! The coconut French toast in the morning is awesome! So are the pumpkin pancakes! Lunch was amazing with fish or can have a sandwich. The staff is very accommodating...they made out grand daughter a peanut butter and honey sandwich, which she devoured. They have a pig roast every Wednesday evening with a wide array of local food...All the... More
