Sheer Rocks is an incredible restaurant nestled along the side of a cliff in a structure that reminds me completely of a Swiss Family Robinson type tree house. It has views that are breathtaking of all of Jolly Harbor and the ocean beyond and if you ever want to impress a date, make a proposal or celebrate a special event,... More

We had the seared fish app, which was AMAZING. I had the soup and a half of pasta which turn out to be FOUR ravioli for about $30 my husband had the pig belly and scallops which was only about 6 pieces which was about $60. We are from the north east and have great restaurants here I don't know... More

This place is amazing. The night we arrived in Antigua we came straight to Sheer Rocks. Mt fiancé proposed to me and the pictures we have of that night are incredible. The views that you look out to are indescribable and they have such a hidden gem here. The food is faultless and the presentation and all round service is... More

My wife and I had dinner here (being on the edge of the sea, I would say the view is probably better at lunch, but I think the menu is slightly different and the ambiance at dinner is also very special). The food and service was absolutely first rate - on a par with Londons top restaurants. The chief came... More

My husband and I have just returned from two weeks in Antigua. We spent the first week at Cocobay Resort where we had 32 of our closest friends and family fly down for our dreamy beach wedding. Because of the size of our group, we opted to have our reception at Sheer Rocks and it was FANTASTIC! Alex is amazing... More

Yes it is expensive. The food is probably not as good as what you could get back home for the money. I'm guessing back home you won't be dining on a cliff, with the luscious turquoise Caribbean sea lapping at the shore beneath you, an idyllic sandy beach on one side, and a thoroughly perfect sunset on the other.

The views are the BEST in Antigua (potentially the best view in all of the Caribbean). A very cool setting, sunsets beautiful, food great.

Even though we stayed at an all inclusive resort (Cocobay), we had dinner at Sheer rocks 3 times in one week. The setting is beautiful with the best sunset view possible. The drinks were top-class, especially the mojito. The staff was friendly and professional and we really appreciated that the head chef and owner Alex came out to say hello... More

We did the wine paired tasting menu on our honeymoon. Worth every penny! This place is amazing! The chef, Alex, came out and spoke with us and answered any questions.

Stellar sunset views! The restaurant is absolutely gorgeous and SO romantic. The wine list is as exceptional as the food. Chef Alex's creations are heaven. The tuna tartar, king scallops with pork belly and blackened fresh catch can only be surpassed by Chef Alex's famous cheesecake! What a charming place!!
