Large menu of such a small place with quality sourced ingredients. HUGE portions with prices to match. Be prepared for your chosen dish to be off today but that's to be expected in a small place in a very small island country. Does have a few occasional specials but if you ate there last month, it's likely to be the... More

Pretty basic and scruffy beach front cafe/bar that dresses up slightly as an evening restaurant. Very informal, with a very small menu that doesn't change from night to night. Food is inconsistent, with excellent and perfectly cooked fish but very disappointing and badly overcooked rice. Service is the usual graceless and uncaring Caribbean standard. Prices are reasonable by local standards... More

You are absolutely correct. Our fish is "....excellent and perfectly cooked...." . All our fish is sourced daily from the fishing boats that arrive at our dock. So if you want fresh, delicious fish Oualie is the place to go. Thanks for also confirming that our prices are reasonable. We try to keep our prices affordable which leads to an... More

My first review although not my first visit to be sure. We stopped to hear the Sunday music and stayed for dinner. I had the passion fruit salad (mixed greens, walnuts, apple slices, goat cheese withheld at my request & passion fruit dressing). The greens were fresh & crisp, the dressing was lovely. Main course, the vegan curry with chickpeas.... More

Stop at Oualie for the view, the people, and the food Relaxed setting and thoughtful food. Ask your server for any specials or if you need something specific, ask ahead and they will do their best!

Thanks for reviewing our beachfront restaurant. Chef Gary and his team usually feature daily lunch and dinner specials based on what fresh produce is in season or what the fishermen caught that day. Genuine Caribbean style cuisine is the theme on Saturdays. If anyone has specific dietary need such as vegan or gluten free our team will do their best... More

Thanks for confirming that we have a lovely beach. You were not pleased with the time it took to get served. We take our restaurant service seriously and have trained and been approved under the UK hospitality assured program. However hiccups do occur in the Caribbean and my staff join me in apologizing for the delay in receiving your meal.... More

We had dinner here the last night of our stay on Nevis! It was such a good experience. Amazing beach, great food, and a place to meet people with live music. Outstanding. Looking forward to coming back for a visit!

The wait staff and kitchen went out of their way to meet the needs of one of our group who is celiac and vegan. The meal was awesome. The menu has a good choice for anyone, although they only serve the crab cakes after 2 pm, so none for lunch!

Thank you for your kind review. As long as we have advance warning, Chef Gary and his team will do their best to cater for any dietary requirements. Those crab cakes on the bar bites menu are very popular! Perhaps I can twist Chef Gary's arm to add them to the lunch menu! More

We ate here a few times and each meal was a huge disappointment, poorly cooked and indifferent service.

Food very basic and very expensive with the service charge and other taxes adding 22 percent to the bill. When asking for fresh food the answer is salad everything else is either frozen or comes out of a tin. The 'chef' is rude, aggressive and spends most of his time sitting at the bar with his drinking buddies, that just... More

Prices on Nevis are expensive. Fortunately the prices at Oualie are more affordable than most restaurants. Sorry to contradict you, but most of our ingredients are fresh locally sourced veggies, salads fish, conch and lobster. Yes our steaks are still imported so would be frozen for safety. We are privileged to host Chef Gary a former lecturer at the Culinary... More

The peas and rice, a staple in this region is yummy. It's not green peas but lentils. The BBQ ribs are yummy and melt off the bone. Meals are available 3 times a day. You might get Peter ( a small finch bird) to come and eat sugar out of hand if you hold still long enough!

Those Oualie ribs are famous! Chef Gary produces nightly mouth watering specials. Do also try Caribbean night on Saturdays when the local chefs get to showcase their local Nevisian cuisine! More

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. The perfect dining location right on the beach. Reservations are recommended in the high season. Unlike most restaurants, we insist on serving FRESH FISH. Lobster, Tuna, Wahoo and Mahi Mahi are brought right into our dock from the game fishing boats and kept on ice, never frozen. We believe in promoting "farm to the plate" and work closely with local farmers to ensure a FRESH supply of vegetables and salads. Our local tomatoes are ridiculously tasty!. We work with the Ministry of Agriculture on the supply of locally grown , grass fed, organic beef and have created the demand for a tender, tasty hybrid cross between the Zebu and Red Pole cattle breeds. Again this is always FRESH and never frozen. Our dinner menu changes daily to incorporate what local foods are available and always has at least one Gluten free and one Vegan dish.
