    Where To Eat On Nevis

We think the best place for breakfast is on the veranda.  Bring your own coffee beans, we provide the grinder. 

Charlestown (15 minutes by taxi or a "dollar bus," which is actually a minivan) has several grocery stores including BestBuy (recommended), Nevis Bakery, a farmers' market, and a few vendors around the main square.  Further down the road are two supermarkets, RAMS and ValuMart

Beer and soft drinks by case are sold at Drinks Depot, next to ValuMart (open until 4pm).

Fishermen bring their catch (also lobsters sometimes) to Oualie Beach shack, around 2-3pm. They will clean fish for you for small extra pay.

Restaurants vary from beach pavilions to fancy restaurants in plantation inns offering a five-course French menu (e.g., Beaujolais Nouveau Night at Montpelier Plantation Inn -- see the menu). 

Oualie Beach Hotel's restaurant is conveniently located just below.  They have live music on Tuesdays.

TripAdviser offers a good list with rankings.

Indian Summer, a couple of miles down the road toward Charlestown, is great for Indian food lovers and is reasonably priced.

Next door is Yachtsman's Grill -- nice and friendly. 

A very informal local gathering with barbecue chicken and ribs, known as Water Department Barbecue, runs evey Friday Night under a tent on Pump Road, near the ValuMart roundabout.

Try Sunshine's Beach Bar and Grill for lunch or dinner.  It is a fun place and the food is good (In the evening, bring some insect repellent with you, just in case). 

Further away and not easy to find, on the opposite side of the island, in Pond Hill, is Passions Bar and Grill. It has a friendly hostess and good food, reasonably priced. Call before coming, 869-669-3737.

In the opposite direction from Oualie, a mile down the road toward the airport, is a sign for The Mount Nevis Hotel (469-9373/4).  We haven't tried it recently; their restaraunt used to have immaculate white tableclothes and perfect service, but in fact was pleasant and unpretentious. The food was good and moderately priced, with a complimentary glass of wine or rum punch. They also used to have theme menus (for example, West Indies night on Thursdays, Mexican night on Saturdays).
