Fodor's Review

After cocktails in the inn's antiques-filled parlor (the knockout rum punches are legendary), dinner is served on the veranda. Many ingredients are harvested from the inn's herb garden, fruit trees, piggery, and livestock collection; the scrumptious cured meats, baked goods, preserves, and ice creams are homemade. Sumptuous dishes prepared by long-time expat maestro Janice Ryan might include breadfruit-cheddar soufflé, ginger-and-lime conch cakes, scallops in gossamer lemon beurre blanc, herb-crusted lamb with rosemary and guava, and passion fruit–ginger cheesecake. A traditional wood-burning oven yields savory items as well, including what may be the best thin-crust pizzas within hundreds of miles. Wednesday night pig roasts are an island must. The ever-growing wine list is exceptionally priced. Bon mots and bonhomie serve as prelude, intermezzo, and coda for a lively evening.
