Ambiance attractive and very Spanish, that's the good news. Very average tapas, very small portions. Example, I ordered chicken wings with nachos, there were three nachos, yes three! The chicken wings were tasty, but again only three mouthfuls. The wine list is scarily expensive, so...More

Hi there, thanks for sharing your feedback. You're right, unfortunately being a small island we have to import practically everything, which does push up the prices compared to what you would encounter in Europe, and of course the currency shift hasn't helped. We're glad you...More

The food here is very well seasoned and nicely prepared. I thought desert was lacking but the meal itself was good.

It's funny how so many of the wonderful places in St Lucia are almost hidden, this is no exception. Unassuming from the street, once inside you'll find yourself on a breezy water view deck, a perfect spot for lunch out of the sun. The menu...More

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.
