I have been here on several occasions during two stays on the island- it is the best place to go! The atmosphere and setting is stunning, Charles & Jackson make the best cocktails and Alex and Simon are phenomenal chefs! Simon's white chocolate mousse was the best thing I have ever eaten! You don't just go here for the incredible... More

Nestled deep in the hills featuring Alex Grimley a chef from London who's made his way to Antigua you'll find culinary excellence to enjoy from the top of an atmospheric cliff. Grimley's use of traditional West Indian spices coupled with the island water's best fish and fare are sure to please. For example, the coconut curry appetizer w/ lobster, shrimp... More

Spent afternoon here having a fab Tapas lunch. The view is incredible! Tables are outside overlooking water. After Lunch hung out by the bar-- there is a small pool to cool off in and enjoy a few cocktails. Great way to spend the afternoon.

My wife and I had long been eager to dine at Sheer Rocks in anticipation of our current holiday in Antigua, but were then advised to forgo it after asking on the tripadvisor forums as we would have to bring along our active 1 & 2 year old sons. I emailed the restaurant and Kate quickly replied that they would... More

Sheer Rocks is like the perfect Antiguan cocktail, a mixture of all the right ingredients in just the right measure, the view from the restaurant is breathtaking, with a fun relaxed atmosphere that transforms perfectly throughout the day. The service was attentive but not fussy, with a fantastic drinks menu, last but of course not least the food: The best... More

Truly wonderful lunchtime experience. From arriving at the hotel reception and being given a guided tour of the hotel on the way to the restaurant we found everything stunning and peaceful. The restaurant is, as it name suggests, perched on cliff tops and the views are truly stunning, even by Antigua standards! We ate with our 10 year old son... More
