REVIEW

Nikki Beach

Nikki Beach is located directly on Saint-Jean beach, a short stroll down from the Eden Rock Hotel, with its cabanas and tables spilling out onto the sand by the all-white plush sun beds.  It is a restaurant of both luxury and whimsy, classy and hedonistic: the food is surprisingly fine given its reputation as a party locus and patrons tend to be chicly dressed (or topless); on the other hand, a relaxed atmosphere prevails, with live farm animals (on their way to becoming the glorious slow-roasted free range rotisserie chicken), a DJ and a revolving door between the water and the tables. Brunch is invariably a boozy affair and, when Champagne is ordered, there is quite a production (see accompanying photos).

The design inside is airy and European minimalist with white canvas dramatically draped everywhere, but the real attraction is the view – both of Saint-Jean beach and the people watching.  Nikki Beach serves surprisingly good sushi, with a variety of combos to choose from, as well as contemporary European cuisine (e.g., the aforementioned chicken for two).  Don’t plan on a big night after a lunch at Nikki Beach unless you are of firmer constitution than us.
