We enjoyed a wonderful spread of tapas for two. We were seated next to the bay at sunset which was a treat. The server was genuine and friendly.

We love Tapas and this restaurant serves a great one. The menu is long, well balanced and just plain FUN! This is a great break from the normal steak or seafood choice.

Tapas are served quickly - drinks ~ slowly. A narrow bar that opens up into a cozy indoor seating area and a larger outdoor experience in Rodney Bay. I'll be back!!

Description
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.
