Fodor's Expert Review Carambola Beach Club

$$$$ St. Kitts Eclectic

At this ultra-stylish restaurant, which unfurls sensuously down South Friar's Bay, more casual lunches take full advantage of the beachfront setting, with white tents and hedonistic beach beds (often overflowing with cruise ship passengers). But nighttime is truly spectacular, as outdoor fiber-optic fountains enhance the visual flair of the vast, sleek-but-not-slick interior, replete with eat-in wine cellar and tile-and-layered-wood sushi bar. Sterling starters include the creative maki rolls. Seafood such as herb-marinated grouper in caper cream is masterfully executed; nothing at Carambola is overcooked. The sole letdown is the wine list. Although it's the island's largest, it lacks imagination; however, the by-the-glass selections are at least reasonably priced.
