Caribbean Cuisine on Nevis

Caribbean food is enjoyed across the islands by newcomers and locals, perhaps because their dishes employ tried-and-true spice blends, rare produce, and fresh caught fare. And luckily, guests will have access to a respectable number of restaurants within this culinary category.

From the informal backdrop at Oualie Beach Resort Restaurant to the much anticipated breakfast service at Coconuts, you could encounter a dish worth sharing - or not, as the case may be.

Below, you can browse the several Caribbean restaurants available. For each of the options, click to learn more about its ambiance, food, and what's located nearby.

Oualie Beach Resort Restaurant

Saint James Windward Parish | (869) 469-9735

Oualie Beach Resort Restaurant is situated in the vicinity of Newcastle; it is five miles (seven and a half kilometers) to the north of Charlestown. When your family is thinking about a really excellent Caribbean meal that isn't fussy in the slightest, this easy going restaurant hits its mark.

Oualie Beach Resort Restaurant is so relaxed that guests often arrive for lunch to dine still in their swim suits out on the patio, and that is a-okay with the staff. Dinner, however, is a slightly more formal affair with guests dinning inside the open air dining room.

Gateways Beach Bar & Grill

Cades Bay | (869) 469-0084

Gateways Beach Bar & Grill is a viable option worth considering if you're thinking about spending some time visiting this neighborhood. Charlestown is to the south. Consider stopping by Cades Bay if you're a fan of Caribbean cuisine, but particularly barbecue.

The Great House

Newcastle | (869) 469-9325

The Great House, a part of Nisbet Plantation Beach Club, can be found in Newcastle, a village in Saint James Windward Parish; 5.5 miles to the north-northeast of Charlestown. Fresh fish and Caribbean food get along famously at this highly praised fine foods restaurant.

Bright yellow walls are only made brighter by the lighting scheme at the Great House, where dark wood furnishings and white linens give it an elegant feel. The Great House is one of the only air conditioned restaurants on the island, but it also possible to eat outdoors on the terrace.

The Hermitage Plantation Inn Restaurant

Saint George Gingerland Parish | (869) 469-3477

The Hermitage Plantation Inn Restaurant is on Hermitage Road. It is 1.8 miles east of Charlestown. Fresh fish and Caribbean food go well together at this well-liked eatery.

The cooks at Hermitage come from the nearby villages, the herbs and spices come from the garden, local farmers bring their produce directly to the hotel, and the fish is also delivered, dripping wet, fresh from the sea. The ladies in the kitchen take great pride in their talent and have created a few dishes that are known on Nevis as Hermitage specialties. Local dishes are the core cuisine and are brought to their peak of perfection and variety every Wednesday night at the Caribbean pig roast. It's one of the most popular events on the island.

Yachtsman Grill

Nelson's Spring | (869) 469-1382

Yachtsman Grill is located at Nelson Spring Beach Resort. It's 2.3 miles north-northwest of Charlestown. Though one might say the overall focus is Caribbean culinary creations, this possible dining pick is particularly known for its hamburgers and pizza.

The grill sits on a clean sandy beach that has beautiful views of St Kitts and stunning sunsets.
