The first night at Montpelier Plantation, during the cocktail hour, I found it a little funny that random visitors from the Four Seasons on the other side of the island were showing up for dinner, but after tasting the splendid meal that evening, I realized that the food and dining experience at Montpelier was an attraction in itself.
These weren’t hastily-prepared meals from a limited and long-set menu – each day, careful consideration was given toward the freshest of ingredients from the island, and the way in which they would be prepared. You would receive a menu at the social hour with two, sometimes three, options for each course, and I don’t think I saw a single unhappy face in the three evening we were on the island.
Each night, we sampled some fantastic cuisine, but on the final evening, we had the special opportunity to share a meal in the colonial sugar mill around which Montpelier Plantation is built. The multiple courses, each with a perfectly-paired wine selection, left us practically rolling back to our cottage, full on pure delight.
