St Kitts And Nevis Food and Drink
St Kitts and Nevis has built up a widely established reputation for fine food, a reputation which the local restauranteurs guard zealously. Restaurants specialise in Chinese, Western, Creole, Indian and West Indian cuisine. Most restaurants in St Kitts offer a continental menu with island variations. Nevis is less grand and Charlestown's small restaurants cater more to Nevisians than visitors. Fruit, including mangoes, papayas and bananas, is sold at the waterfront market. A wide range of imported drinks is available.
