Visited the restaurant on Friday! Enjoyed the tapas. It was my son's birthday and they did make him feel special! Rob Zi Taylor was playing live music which was lovely! Very enjoyable evening.

Food service was slow, not sure the reason for the hold up, but seemed to stem from the kitchen. Venue is OK, certainly accessible for hotel guests in the area.

Enjoyed the location and the service and most of the food. did not enjoy the Sangria and sent it back, it did not appear on the bill and overall a good dining experience. Worth trying!

A well appointed restaurant nestled on the waterfront of Rodney Bay. A cool breeze that lulls you into a relaxed mood, an amazing view of the waterfront. Appetizers and a luncheon main course that was absolutely scrumptious we simply needed to send a thank you...More

Tucked away behind a shopping area, this place had great food and a great view of the bay! Even had a friendly cat to play with!

The food here is amazing and the entertainment was even better on Friday night. The lady that sings here on the weekends has an angelic voice.

With its Spanish-inspired decor and menu of 'little dishes from around the world', Tapas On The Bay is tucked into a breezy corner of Rodney Bay marina lagoon, where a steady breeze blows across the calm waters and cools its spacious covered deck. The long, Soufriere stone clad bar is perfect for enjoying a quick lunch or dinner, and the secluded location makes Tapas On The Bay a great place to relax and chill out. Taking traditional tapas as a base, Chef Rosie incorporates Caribbean and international influences, creating innovative new bite-sized dishes with local ingredients and flavours, serving them on sharing platters for a very social eating experience. There are also plenty of delicious entrees and yummy desserts to round out the menu. Throw in some excellent wines, three different types of sangria and boozy cocktails by the jug, and Tapas On The Bay could be your next favourite dining spot in Saint Lucia. Open for brunch from 10am to 3pm, happy hour from 4pm to 6pm and dinner from 6pm to 10pm (11pm Saturday and Sunday). Closed Tuesdays.
