This is a very special place with delightful gardens. The lobster sandwich has a great reputation. It is nice to walk around the garden with many quiet private areas and water features to enjoy. Wonderful

Wonderful evening by the water garden. The evolving garden on this hillside brings added colour and drama to the whole experience

Fantastic setting in an elevated position at an old sugar mill. The legendary lobster sandwich certainly lived up to the reputation. The lobster was soft, well cooked, and there was plenty of it. The bread cooked on site, and the salad dressing was to die for. All wonderfully served in peaceful surroundings.

What a great escape. The food was exceptional. There are many eating nooks throughout the dining area. The gardens are beautiful. And interesting work interspersed around the party.

Beautiful restaurant on old sugar plantation. We were there for lunch. Conch soup yummy. Have to have the "legendary lobster sandwich". Not too hard to find. Off main road and up the mountain a short distance. We drove but you can find a tour that will include lunch at this restaurant.

This is the most beautiful place I have ever dined for lunch and can't imagine it will be topped. You really need to go there to understand. I have heard there is a new cook there and the food was very good (although limited selections). Definitely try the conch chowder and the rum punch was very good. We hope to... More

This is a beautifully designed lush property built around an old sugar mill. The arrangements of the dining dotting the property in hidden nooks and crannies creates a very romantic and unique atmosphere. This is complemented by the vibrant colors on the canopy, the seating cushions and the bathrooms, which are are tastefully decorated in the same brilliant red. Our... More

We visited the Golden Rock Inn where we were magically carried away into the rainforest to this restaurant.The setting is gorgeous- extremely well appointed with seating arrangements, gardens with the most amazing tropical plants. Our excellent meal of the renowned lobster sandwich was accompanied with a robust rose' wine. This... More

We visited Golden Rock for lunch. It is in a spectacular hotel/restaurant nestled in a hillside rainforest setting. The gardens and restaurant are all spectacular. In addition, the service....the drinks and the food are all world class. Highly recommend

Probably the most magical environment on Nevis. We have been several times over the years and at different times of the day. An excellent lunch out in the gardens with a stunning view and dinner in the 'open' restaurant in another hugely romantic setting. The food was reasonable this time, but not the best, although a new chef is about... More
