Dinner at the Watermelon Cottage is a must when visiting Montserrat! The food, beautiful atmosphere, and company are perfect for Saturday night entertainment. Owner and chef Trevor graciously accommodated me for dinner even after his other reservations were switched to a different day and I ended up being the only party of the evening (not surprising as I was visiting...

I am sorry that your evening at Watermelon was such a terrible disappointment. I was given no indication by you that you were not happy, if you had done so I would have compensated you in some way. The least being I certainly would have changed your ‘very uncomfortable’ chair (the only time I have heard this comment from a... More

The place was full as went for a fun evening for Valentines Supper -- good food and hospitable owners. Reasonably priced and a quiet and relaxing atmosphere -- no need to rush through the evening as we were on "island time"

Our evening at Watermelon Cottage was the perfect way to wrap up our stay on Montserrat. On recommendation from our family, we spent the last night of our vacation there for dinner. Trevor's hospitality along with the ambiance of this magical spot is something we will always treasure.

We tagged along for dinner with some new acquaintances and really enjoyed the food and experience. The owner, Trevor, becomes part of your group by interacting with everyone. Dinner took about 2 hours but mainly because we were all talking with Trevor while he was cooking. I don't know how he managed it. He has a small house-like setting that... More

Trevor who runs and owns watermelon cottage,is both Chef and raconteur,we ate well and laughed hard, helped along by a few Gin and Tonics. Open mainly in the holiday season late Nov to March time, it is well worth a visit to enjoy the food and tastefully decorated restaurant and of course Trevor's many and funny story's.

Conveniently located but the minute you walk through the gate you'll feel like you are in a remote rainforrest. Trevor was an amazing host, bar tender, chef and decorator extraordinaire. Loved the stories he shared about his world travels and art - we ruly felt like guests in his home and the food was great.

The Watermelon Cottage is simply stunning. You are immersed in the rainforest, while being served excellent food and drink. And to top it off, Trevor, the owner is wonderfully gracious. So good that we're going back again during our visit. Jackie O

This place was AMAZING! The owner was so sweet and really set the tone for a romantic evening. We were on our honeymoon and it was our 3rd day on the island. Do not miss this place! It is gorgeous and the food is delicious! Make sure to call ahead for a reservation.

We had a wonderful time and a very tasty meal cooked by Trevor and enjoyed his high end cuisine in a setting that inspires more questions than it answers~!! Trevor's taste is impeccable and exquisite -- he has arranged his very intimate restaurant in such a way that one's eyes never rest from his art, gathered over the years and... More
