We didn't eat in Basse Terre (or anywhere on St. Kitts). But I observed that there were restaurants around the Clock Circus and also a few along the cruise ship dock.
One of the ones I took a photo of (which also apparently has a piano bar) was the
Circus Grill ($15-50/plate)
Ones that I didn't photograph but which was in the same price category was
Favorite Dish: Places that I photographed but weren't on the list website list was something that looked like a KFC (photo 4). Also there was a place called Jimmy's (photo 3)
Anyone heard the news about that place over there on Fort Street that everyone loves to go for lunch and dinner, upstairs of Skerritt's Drug Store and Digicel - Indra's Roti House & Bar?
Well, I was over at the Roti House to have lunch on Friday last - 9th June 06 - and was told by Val that they will no longer be opened for business after the Music Festival ending the first week in July.
THE BUSINESS - INDRA'S ROTI HOUSE - IS UP FOR SALE!!!
I was also told that if it is not sold by that time, then they will just sell all the equipment associated with the business and done with it.
This is very sad news for I know of umpteen of my friends who have lunch and sometimes dinner there twice per week - people also come from Central Bank - as far as Bird Rock who park up by the park area and actually walk two to three blocks to have lunch here - it will be a sad day for all of us for Ten EC Dollars gave a quite a satisfying lunch and a drink - and we love their rotis. And since they added the buffalo wings - hmmmmmm - that is heavenly! They are going to be missed by a hell of a lot of people!
I was told that whoever bought the business will have personal training from Val and Shanta on how everything is done - they will not remain in the roti business so not to worry about competition.
I offered to help by putting it on the internet - so if you need to get in touch with them, their telephone number is 869-466-9359 or their email address is email@example.com
I was told that it is a steal of a deal and with their loyal following - you can't go wrong!! So, anyone out there up for the challenge can call them at anytime - they also live on site at the restaurant - on the other side has three bedrooms!!
Favorite Dish: The menu is mainly a wide variety of rotis and local dishes along with sandwiches, hot dogs and hamburgers. Buffalo wings - very popular - is a must for appetizer!! That is how the locals do it!!!
Right on the beach, Mr. X's has great barbequed food, ribs checken, lobster fish. There is not a big choice but all the food is great and good value. Mr. X also has all the beers and cocktails you would expect in the caribean.
Favorite Dish: The bbqed chicken was great a big thick juicy chicken breast grilled just right.
BANANAS is a do not miss while in Nevis. A sign from the main road directs you into a driveway but after that the restaurant maybe a little difficult to locate. As you enter the driveway make a right and then park in the grass at the end of the street. From there walk up the steep, narrow, rutted road behind you. You should see the tram operator waiting a top the first set of stairs. If not, wait, he will be right back down to get you. You know you are in for a special evening when you are transported on the slow moving tram to the uppermost part of the cliff! The operator is the first official greeter and gives you a little pass history about the place during your ride to the top. Make sure you arrive at Bananas well before the sunset because the panorama is one of the most magnificent on the island and you are going to want to enjoy it as much as possible before night falls. When it does happen, the setting sun does little more than enhance St. Kitts and Hurricane Hill. The restaurant is an older stone building with a path leading to the dining area. Tables are setup mostly outside on a stone patio under canvas canopies surrounded by gardens and the Caribbean Sea.
The menu ranges from unpretentious to a little something different. We started with a good-sized goat cheese tart that was helped with a little flavor from the caramelized onions. My family?s dinner choices included ribs, pasta and Maui-Maui -- enjoyed by all. Dessert however maybe the restaurants down fall. Our Crème Brule was very soft and a little runny. There was very little caramelized sugar on top and it?s usually my favorite part! The brownie and ice cream had a very bland sugarless taste.
Service is great?. I like to see the other servers pitch in and help each other. A friendly conversation was included every time one of the staff stopped by to full glasses, clear dishes, etc.
Favorite Dish: The ribs were just right not too spicy and came as two six inch racks. The dinner also included seasoned mashed potatoes.
We also enjoyed eating ata little locally owned restaurant that served great seafood.
It was called Cha-Cha-Del. Open for dinner only.
Favorite Dish: fresh fish with side order of rice and peas, taro root fritters, and eggplant casserole.
This was one of our favorite places to have lunch. We would eat out on the patio and be entertained buy all the birds that wanted to join us.
It was not as casual at dinner time but the food was excellent.
American style restaurant with great caribbean food. The owners are some of the nicest people on the island and the food is excellent.
Favorite Dish: Grilled chicken with peanut butter sauce. Don't let the sound of peanut butter sauce scare you, it's awesome!
Miss Junes starts out at with cocktails; then over 20 dishes (mainly West Indian) are served in a formal dining room where everyone sits together; the food is fabulous, a variety of flavors and spices; after dessert is served everyone has after dinner drinks and has a great time listening to Miss June's stories. Some evenings do not end until the a.m. It is a great place to meet people from all over the world.
Can't remember the name, but it was a seafood Bar-B-Q restaurant, set on the sea shore on a jetty over looking the capital and the sea
The water lapping up under the jetty, whilst sipping an icy cold beer in the warm carribean evening - magnificent
Favorite Dish: We had lobster and shrimp - excellent
I've only been to one 'off-resort' restaurant and it was so-so. The three restaurants at the Four Seasons are all good and have very fresh food and a neat european-carribean fusion selection.
Favorite Dish: For some reason, I really like the spiny lobster there, usually I don't like it, but they prepare it in a way that is very tasteful.
Timothy Beach Resort was a dud. Sloooowww service too boot. There is a restuarant across the way from Timothy's that was prety good and has a bar with take-away food. Go into town and eat anywhere in the main square is a good bet. Turtle Beach is out of the way but worth it. Very lively crowd and after a few drinks....becomes more lively! The moo moo's pictured are part of the obstacle course getting there, so watch out!
Well it's also the home of a dive shop, boutique and druken volleyball matches and a nice beach that has some pretty good snorkeling right in front. Do it all!
Seafood Restaurant (can't remember name) past downtown. (Fisherman's Wharf or something like that). Awesome seafood dinners...FRESH!
Price was all right, but atmosphere was casual and background music (not live but really cool and upbeat) made the restaurant that much better.
Favorite Dish: Lobster...YUM!
Open kitchen, great staff, wonferdul food. Our dinner lasted three hours and when we left we could hardly move. Well worth the cost!
Qualie Beach Club has an open air screened restaurant and bar. They serve a standard breakfast and lunch. Sometimes they have a barbecue with beachside entertainment.
