Indigo at Montpelier Plantation

Montpelier Plantation Nevis Review | The Rose Table

Let’s talk about the cutest island pool bar: Indigo at Montpelier Plantation and Beach on Nevis. First of all, the pool at Montpelier is stunning and photos really don’t do its size justice. I did laps one morning and kept looking up in disbelief to see how far away the edge was! It’s nestled neatly next to Montpelier’s 300 year-old sugar mill. Is there a cooler place to drink fresh coconut water?

The food is basically everything I want in an island lunch. It’s fresh and fun and is satisfying without weighing you down. Here are a few of my favorite dishes:

Lobster Cocktail

This dish tastes a lot like a fancy lobster chicken salad. It feels decadent while still being swimsuit friendly. It’s served with diced mango and red bell pepper in a little plantain basket.

Root Chips

A mix of crunchy sweet potato, plantain, and other root vegetable chips are served with creamy guacamole. Sweet potato chips were my favorite! I could nosh on this by the pool any day of the week.

Lobster Sandwich

This is similar to a chicken salad sandwich. The ciabatta is so soft and it’s served with truffle fries. I highly recommend this sandwich.

Fried Banana

I would just kill for another bite of this right about now! This dessert is absolutely worth getting on a plane for.  It’s atually not too heavy at all with just one scoop of ice cream. The banana is incredibly crunchy and packed with cinnamon flavor. In my notes (yes, I type out dining notes on vacation – how else could i possibly remember to tell you everything?!) I actually wrote in all caps, “GET THE FRIED BANANA! Omg.” Not my most eloquent note, but there you have it.

Caribbean Lovers

Meet my Caribbean love. This is hands down one of the best rum cocktails I’ve ever had. I don’t even want to admit to you how many of these I gleefully drank with in Nevis. The bartender told me he would happily do a Facebook live to show you all how to make but I ran out of time! Maybe if I ask really nicely, Montpelier Plantation will share the recipe with us. A rum lover can dream! In the meantime, if you find yourself on the island of Nevis, head to Montpelier Plantation and order a Caribbean Lovers. Cheers!

[…] I was feeling a little blue that my 2020 Caribbean trip was cancelled, so I decided to have a little vacation at home with plantain chips and guacamole by the pool, inspired by my trip to Montpelier Plantation & Beach on the island of Nevis. (Read my review of Montpelier’s poolside restaurant Indigo, which inspired this dish, here.) […]
