We had a day in Nevis from St Kitts and stopped for lunch here. The location and gardens are beautiful and had zen about them. The small waterfalls gave a very relaxing ambience. The food was so beautiful. I can honestly say they served the best lobster I have ever had. Desserts superb. Attentive service and polite. There is nothing... More

Had breakfast here 5 out of 7 days. Even just the bread basket and coffee was a great way to start the day. For $8, you got 4-5 sweet breads, biscuits, and muffins with butter and homemade strawberry jam, and a nice pot of coffee. You can see Montserrat in the distance and enjoy the fish ponds and beautiful fauna... More

Upon arriving via ferry from St. Kitts, we made a beeline to the tourist information office. We originally were going to the Botanic Gardens, but the guide said that Golden Rock was not only better, but free. In addition, we could have lunch there. The gardens were indeed impressive. It is a secluded place where guests stay in small houses... More

We had a lovely lunch at this chic Inn on Nevis. The decor is amazing and the food was excellent. Be sure to wander around the grounds to fully appreciate the work that's been at this beautiful resort.

Great service and food. Go early or stay after lunch and walk the gardens and grounds. Lobster salad sandwich was recommended and was delicious.

Lunch menu was well priced, we just had a beer which again was not inflated. Took time to wander round the gardens after lunch .... Beautiful.

Unfortunately it was raining during our visit, so we did not get to see the spectacular view. The gardens/landscaping is impressive (we heard it's better than the botanical gardens).

We hiked on the Source Trail and then had lunch at The Rocks. The staff is very attentive. We had the lobster and pan seared snapper sandwiches, both of which were very good. The surroundings are tranquil and idyllic. We hung out at their pool for the rest of the afternoon which was lovely. We enjoyed their rum punch -... More

Beautifully restored property and gardens, oozing charm and sophistication with great views to boot. We went here for a drink, but were soon charmed into eating our lunch by the setting and the very friendly service. The food was very good and served with a lovely, welcoming Nevisian smile.

We went up to Golden Rock for lunch during our trip to Nevis - great food (the lobster sandwich and goats cheese salad were both excellent), delicious cocktails (try the Mojito), a wonderful setting (lush tropical gardens centred upon a two hundred year old converted sugar plantation built by the current owner's ancestor) and a friendly welcome from the staff....
