The most popular place to party (called "limin'" by locals) and dine on delectable eats is along The Strip in Frigate Bay. Many locations along the beach strip appear to be more night club or bar than restaurant, but actually, each serves up cuisine that will make your mouth water.

Several restaurants on the island close in August or September, so be sure to call before you make the drive. Lunch prices are often times half of the price of a dinner, usually in the range of $9(USD) to $27(USD). American food is often included on the menu at many places for the children or tourists who are shy about trying the local cuisine.

Some of the more expensive restaurants require lunch reservations, and most of them require reservations for dinner. Dinner, many times, is at a set price, ranging from $35-65(USD). Be sure to check the hours of operation for your restaurant choices. Some are open only for dinner, some all day, and some only three days a week. Typically, a ten percent service charge is added to your bill, but additional gratuities are greatly appreciated especially if you've had exceptional service.

There is also a great selection of hotels with restaurants. Find out if your hotel is on the list by visiting our guide to the Best St. Kitts Hotels for Dining Options. The A to Z: Hotels in Detail list, allows you to search for hotels that you are interested in staying at, and to determine which restaurants are located nearby. This page also includes details on the hotel - including if there is a restaurant right on property.

Eat up and enjoy every moment of it. Whether a light meal at a beach bar, or a five-course meal in a restaurant overlooking Port Zante, the variety of flavors available between St. Kitts and Nevis are enough to make you want to stay on the islands for life.
