“An altogether glum experience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

The restaurant was encouragingly busy but the overall experience this Monday evening was a disappointing one. Service not in the least charming, food pricey for what it was (and overcooked), and the menu over-fussy in the tradition of "fine dining". Wine - the house Merlot - was, however, excellent. Specifically, my Caesar salad was OK but not a patch on Babaloo's at two-thirds the price; the Mahi mahi entree dry, and the chicken curry fiercely hard and bitter - all in all not justifying a premium price. This was a disappointing way to end a holiday.

“Best meal on this trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

Serendipity came recommended by our driver and by other vacationers at the Marriott resort. We were thrilled that we were able to squeeze this in on our last night. The food (grouper, salmon, mahi mahi and a vegetarian meal were all fabulous. And to match the food, the service and setting were both top-notch. IF we ever make it back to St Kitts (let's hope!), we will return here.

“Lovely view, ambience, service but mostly importantly, food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014 via mobile

I took my first recommendation from reviews on Trip Advisor, then found it recommended in a local guide book, finally when asking the hotel's concierge to book for us, they immediately said that all guests they had sent there had loved it!

We arrived before our reservation time, but were warmly greeted and taken straight to our table over looking the bay - it was beautiful, as the sun was going down.

Go for seafood! Between us we had crab cakes, conch chowder, 'New Orleans shrimp' and lobster! Every dish was brilliant! We are gong to return here before travelling home!

“World class eatery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

My group of five ate here on our last night in St Kitts. This was a fantastic choice although expensive. Everyone enjoyed their appetizers and the main course. We had wine and special coffees and desserts. The view was great and everyone was satisfied.

“Always a pleasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

The food is truly magnificent and the view over the historic town of Basseterre and the roadstead is absolutely stupendous.
It would be hard to be disappointed.
