Highly reviewed as “a must” - walked 3 minutes from the Park Hyatt to the beach shack. The view of Nevis is spectacular - the public beach in front - not so much. Overweight, pasty cruise tourists mixing in the warm soup of a tiny expanse of water - double fisting beers and waddling back to plastic chairs. No rest room in sight. Uhm hmmm... Ordered the much touted chicken jerk nachos to start. Yellowed chips from a bag ( Costco anyone?) dripping with orange Cheeze food. ( From a jar - why not real cheddar?? I am a Texan and expect quality ingredients on my Mexican Food) the small dollop of “guacomole” was straight from a squirt bottle. On an island that has fresh avocados growing on the hillside this is NOT okay. I expect chunks of avocado blended with chopped onion and a few diced tomatoes - a fresh lump in every scoop. And the teeny tiny squares of some kind of meat- dried and covered in an orange, spicey dry rub was less than satisfying. The “Nevis Peak” cocktail was made for a child. Nestle syrup dripping down the sides - made with ice not blended well with anything resembling Bailey’s - not even a hint. I had anticipated - rich creaminess like a smoothie in texture. Instead a weakened snow cone consistency with syrup and little if any alcohol. Now for the entree- how can you go wrong with fresh catch of the day Wahoo??? Drench it in orangey grease mixed with spices - and serve with orangey rice and chunks of broccoli swimming in orange grease. I used 10 napkins mopping the grease from my fish! No desserts offered on the menu - just as well. I left feeling queasy. Just take your meals at the Park Hyatt! Not worth the 3 min. Walk!

Very nice building, great food, specialty mixed drinks, great location, friendly staff. Went to dinner the last night of vacation. Wish we would have gone sooner so we could have gone again.

Decent food. Grumpy service.

They ran out of several menu options including conch and coffee.

Restaurant kitchen can become overwhelmed with large groups.

To their credit, they did comp us drinks for our wait.

After enjoying the railway tour in the morning, we grabbed a taxi and headed to Spice Mill for a bite and then to enjoy the beach! It was our favorite meal of the whole cruise which visited 5 islands, so that says a lot. The upper deck area is nicer, but still casual and provides great views with shade and some cooler air. The lower deck is more beach bar-ish and there is actually a beach bar as well. My husband said the swordfish special of the day was the best fish he's every had and my jerk chicken was phenomenal. Mixed drinks were ok, beer was cold and that's all you need. Service was great too! You can rent chairs and umbrellas in front to the right on the beach from them, but we just used our towels. Beach was clean and beautiful, water was clear!
