We didn't find the food at lunch to be particularly exciting, but this restaurant is situated on lovely grounds with a great view of the Carribean and south toward Nevis, so it was a relaxing and enjoyable place to dine. I had two starters, the conch fritters which had both a much deeper seafood flavor and chunkier pieces of conch than ones I tried at a different restaurant. I liked these better, although they lacked being served with a flavorable sauce. I also had a variety plate of Carribean sausages which I don't even remember. One guest had the grouper entree which was a very nice serving size of well-prepared grilled grouper accompanied by a nice salad. Another guest had the roti which she said she liked but was spicy for her. Her spicey and my spicy are two different worlds, I didn't find it spicy at all. I had a Carib (local beer) and the others ice tea. One had a chocolate cake for dessert which was said to be tasty and good. The service here was a little more "island time" and, again, more noticeable during dessert and paying the bill than during the meal. The menu prices were in Carribean dollars, not US. The cost for the three of us was about $65 with tip.

We were quite late in arriving and even though lunch service technically had ended they graciously seated us and were treated to amazing food with views to match. We then realised there was more than meets the eye and found a beautifully restored plantation house with wonderful grounds. We spent the better part of two hours looking around and had we known we would have packed our bathing costumes and had a swim. This was all down to a wrong turn. Highly recommend for lunch and museum quality restored plantation house. The service could not be faulted!

During our visit we stopped at Nirvana for lunch. We weren't sure they were open but we were quickly seated upon entry. I ordered fried fish and jerk chicken along with a mango margarita. All were delicious! Grounds are beautiful and pool was a refreshing surprise for a lunch dip!

My partner and I made the short trip from our internationally known hotel. We were thrilled the restaurant was easy to find.

He had the seafood chowder as a starter while I had the pumpkin soup which our server recommended. Both were excellent!

He has the grouper sandwich served with French fries and slaw. My entree was the jerk chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries and cole slaw. Both the chicken and fish were moist and seasoned perfectly.

What an absolutely beautiful place. We had been emailing back and forth prier to our visit to St.kitts. We were hoping to take a cooking class as well as enjoying dinner there. The weather did not permit us to join a cooking class, but we had a wonderful brunch and the opportunity to meet Chef Janice. Talking with her was so enlightening, she is such a great person.The grounds are just spectacular.We had a great time there. Thank you all .
