Amazing Creative Food!

We dined at Sheer Rocks last week and I must say it was one of the most pleasurable gastronomic experiences I have had in several years. The setting is idyllic in a wooden "verandah" structure with linen drapes billowing lazily in the breeze. The service was outstanding but it was the food that... read more

I was not overly keen on the food, but my family loved it. Lots of tapas dishes for lunch rather than one meal. I think it might be overrated because of where it is, but worth a visit.

This place has a fantastic setting overlooking the sea from the rocks. The set up was smart/causal with nicely laid out tables. The menu was varied and their was a good wine list (though bit pricey). The nicest thing though was the Chef came out to speak to the diners and was a very talented young English guy. Highly recommend... More

If you're in Antigua, Sheer Rocks is a must! The restaurant is nestled on a cliff-top looking out onto one of the most exquisite views imaginable – breathtaking! There's a really special atmosphere about this place, as if you've entered an oasis of serenity and beauty. The staff are some of the friendliest we've ever come across – the perfect... More

We came here for lunch one day. Then promptly booked to come back for dinner! The food is really exceptional and to be able to enjoy it with a gorgeous sea view makes for a very memorable meal. We loved the tapas for lunch, it was hard to choose only 5 dishes! Tapas for lunch then a la carte in... More

Spent holidays with the family in Antigua. Heard good feedbacks about Sheer Rocks and decided to give it a try. It was worth it- great location, friendly staff. Can agree with some previous comments about a bit small portions (was just enough for me and each one of my family) which just makes prices look a bit hight and not... More

Had dinner there as well as a lunch. Food was great as was the service. Location was wonderful as were the views from the restaurant. The chef came to our table during lunch and answered all questions about the preparation. This is a must if you are on Antigua.

Beautiful, the over the ocean view and the dining cabana's are gorgeous. Have been many times and I never tire of it. Fantastic food ( I think a Michelin chef ), ambiance and service. One of my favorite spots on the island. Cheers

My husband and I returned to Antigua this year for my birthday and visited Sheer Rocks on Wednesday 13th May to celebrate. We booked a day bed, had lunch, drank the most delicious cocktails. Sheer Rocks has to be one of the most amazing places on earth. The views, the food, the drinks, the service just WOW. Thank you to... More

We had the 5 coarse taster Menu with wine. Each coarse was a real treat for the tastebuds! The wine complimented each coarse perfectly. A beautiful location with a real relaxing atmosphere. Attention to detail is excellent. Best Cocktails in town! The Staff are warm and friendly and nothing is to much trouble. We would highly recommend.
