Delightful meal. Beautiful setting, which is basically a series of decks and rocks with water effects at several levels. The owners have clearly given thought to the ambience as well as the food. Good italian food, which seems an odd choice for the islands. All of us had various pasta dishes, and all were very good. Server was very funny... More

Food was good - not great. Portions satisfactory. Veggie lasagne was flavorful, but not quite hot enough temperature-wise. Lobster in the sauce & pasta was a little chewy. Steak was cooked perfectly and flavorful. We shared creme brûlée for dessert. It was delicious.

We having been coming to Virgin Gorda for over 10 years and the Rock is the most consistent place to dine in terms of food quality and service. William, Avril and Ninja are the best. We tend to eat at the bar but dining among the boulders or in the tree house makes for an unforgettable experience.

This lovely restaurant is basically decks built around and between beautiful rock formations. There are little man made pools and waterfalls. The coqui frogs sing all evening. The food is mostly Italian. Our party had 3 different pasta entrees and I had the Mahi Mahi on veggies special. All wonderful. We tried all three offered desserts: fried Oreos, Choc mousse,... More

Arrived and the host walked us out and up to a beautiful romantic table by the boulders.It was nice to dine in the natural setting under the stars.

The food was good and they're open pretty late. They had a major HBO fight and that was drawing many of the locals into the place which was pretty cool.

We came here twice. The back patio is amongst the beautiful boulders that dot the shoreline. Water fountains and chirping birds really added to the atmosphere. The food was very good. We had lobster and the chicken penne. I would say it was up with NYC quality food. Very happy with the meal and the service. A few rogue cats... More

The food and wine here is good. On our visit, it rained so we ended up stuck inside. The restaurant atmosphere and staff are very nice. What made this visit special for us was the live music. There is usually a piano player but on this occasion, there was a guitar player, a man who was likely pushing 70 that... More
