The Last time I was at the Coconut Grove Restaurant & Wine Lounge, I found it to be WAY over priced and over rated. The
restaurant is very tastefully decorated in, don't ask me why, but Tahitian style? Seems a bit odd for the Caribbean to look South Pacific.
Two items of note about Coconut Grove for all
of us "beverage lovers", it is the only place on Nevis with a wine cellar, and it is the only place on Nevis where you can get beer on tap. The wine cellar offers quite a nice selection of US and French
wines, but they too are overpriced for Nevis. This ain't The Four Seasons.
The menu has a "Continental" theme, with a strong emphasis on local ingredients, naturally leaning towards the
Seafood side. The dish that I think sounds worth a try is the "Seafood Napoleon" done Indian style, (Shrimp and Lobster in a mild madras Curry
Sauce, layered between Indian Pampadoms), but then I love Indian food. Traditionally a "Seafood Napoleon" is done with spinach, mushrooms, diced tomatoes, simmered in a cream sauce and served on puff pastry.
So as you can see the Chef has a good imagination! Too bad the food is overpriced. See the whole menu in here
, if the menu does not come up you will need to install the FREE Adobe Acrobat Reader.
menu is diverse and makes good use of local ingredients in a "fusion" style of cooking, I personally think the prices are a bit high. I would like to see the price about 25 % lower on many items, and maybe 20%
lower on others. To me US $12.00 for a bowl of Onion Soup is way too high! However I am sure they are catering to the Four Seasons Resort crowd, and then the prices
are right on the mark. There are many other restaurants on Nevis with excellent food for MUCH lower prices.
Overall...I certainly would not waste my time or money to go back.
