Visited for dinner. The staff certainly made us feel welcomed while we waited on one member of the party. We didnt get lobster but the food was excellent. I will be back.

Lovely views of St.Kitts from the very swish bar. This place has had a lot of money spent on it and feels like the Soho House franchise has come to the Caribbean. The food is excellent and its worth a visit if you like boutique.
