Caribbean Tourism

Food & Drink

Food on the whole is good. Apart from almost every kind of imported food and drink, there is a wide variety of fresh seafood (red snapper, lobster, king fish, blue parrot), and local vegetables.


The excellent local spirit is CSR – Cane Spirit Rothschild – produced in St Kitts by Baron de Rothschild (now in a joint venture with Demerara Distillers Ltd of Guyana). It is drunk neat, with ice or water, or with ‘Ting’, the local grapefruit soft drink (also highly recommended). Tours of the CSR factory are possible. The hotels have restaurants, usually serving local specialities. Most of the Plantation Inns on both islands offer Sunday brunch, usually a three course meal and excellent value at around US$25 per person.
