“Nicey but Pricey”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

The ceiling is covered with flags, on our Friday afternoon visit the stereo was pumping out seventies and eighties soul classics, somehow every song capturing the word sunshine: You are the Sunshine of My life, Aint no Sunshine etc. Music was great but quite loud, so unlike us, don't try and bring a sleepy baby. We had two pineapple juices, red snapper with salad and a jumbo prawn salad. The snapper was huge, chargrilled, well seasoned with sea salt and pepper and deliciously moist and fresh. Salads were generous with quality ingredients. The food would not have been out of place at the Four Seasons where we stayed down the road but the trouble is neither would the prices. We paid around $65-70 US with tip to a dour waitress who reminded us there was no service included. Our Pineapples juices were in tiny cups and were cheap concentrates not the fresh ones you'd expect for $10 a pop. So go if you are staying at FS and you want a taste of the local vibe and good food gu8ve it a try but don't think you are going to save a lot of money on your usual meal prices.

“Local Taste of Nevis”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Sunshine's is a great bar with the classic drink to try, the 'killer bee'. The bar is located right on the beach, the staff are really friendly, and there is a money to hang out with. I cant speak for the food because I didn't eat there but the killer bees alone are worth the trip.

“Great place to drink, not eat.”
Reviewed October 23, 2012 via mobile

Sunshine's was a cool place for sure. All the pictures of famous people on the walls and ceiling,will keep you there for sure. The food was disappointing. We had lunch, I had a cheeseburger that must have been frozen for a long time, it was bland and blah. The lobster sandwich was plain. Meet Frisky the monkey. Good place to drink, skip the food.

“Best Day Ever!”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

My husband & I strolled down to Sunshine's for lunch from the Four Seasons and stumbled back! So apparently 3 1/2 Killer Bees are my limit - I don't remember much after that! I do remember that the food was delicious! Sunshine himself was there to greet us - wish he would give up that Killer Bee recipe! Our server Pinckey was pleasant and attentive! Hello Pinckey! I still want to move in with you there at Sunshine's! Fresh fish - great drinks - wonderful hosts! Another important point - Killer Bees do not leave you with a hangover! After a little dip in the sea & a short nap we were good to go for dinner and more drinks! One of the highlights of our trip! Don't miss it!!

“Worth a stop”
Reviewed March 12, 2011

Walked over from the Four Seasons with a few friends for a late night sample of Killer Bees.
We weren't disappointed. It's an open air small island beach bar that captures the spirit of Nevis.
Danced and had a good time. Modest prices
