At the Four Seasons Resort, this beach bar and restaurant has the most panoramic outdoor deck for dining in Nevis. The music's hot, and the drinks, especially those rum punches, are among the island's most alluring. Both hotel guests and visitors drop in here for a "sundowner," enjoying the gorgeous sunsets. Since it lies only a short stroll from the golf course, sportsmen also frequent the place. Their favorite libation is a Tipsy Palmer.

The dishes are creative, and spices from the island's fertile soil play a large part in the flavoring. Coconut, mango, and passion fruit also appear in some dishes. Start with such inventive appetizers as pumpkin soup with honey-butter croutons, or else spiny lobster fritters in a Calypso hot-pepper sauce. Some of the seafood is taken straight from the boat into the kitchen. A specialty is a Gallows Bay fish pot, Nevisian style, baked in foil and served with organic vegetables. Baby back ribs appear with a Jamaican rum barbecue sauce. And don't forget a side of green papaya slaw.
