I am used to NYC dining, so my standards are high. We tried the tasting menu with the pairing. The food was great! The fish dishes really excel but the meat dishes are also great. Service is a bit lacking, but the wine pairings were surprisingly great as well. The view is lovely and it is a nice option for... More

First of all, the location was fantastic, high above the rocks and sea. We were treated wonderfully. The owner/chef took our reservation, seated us and cooked our food. The food was delicious, and prepared beautifully. Our whole family ages 9 months to 60 years loved it. We were seated in a very private alcove and felt like we were the... More

We found the setting and food the best the island has to offer. Our children enjoyed their food as well. The drinks were vey good too. This is what you imagine of great food in a tropical destination.

Sheer Rocks is a wonderful restaurant serving thoughtful, well executed cuisine in a top location. As all the reviews say the views are great and staff couldn't be more helpful or charming. We enjoyed an evening meal here while staying at a nearby resort and we're very glad we made the effort. As we plan to return to Antigua again... More

We have eaten here several times over the last couple of years and can not find fault. Good food served by friendly staff in a stunning location. We don't usually go for tapas, but the tapas brunch is a real treat and the chef's recommendations were excellent.

My boyfriend and I ended up going to Sheer Rocks twice during our 6 day Antigua Vacation. What a spot! We did both the tapas lunch and then dinner another day. Both were amazing! The food is so fresh and you can't beat the view. We highly recommend getting a sun bed if you can and have a few cocktails... More

I am a NY restauranteur, and this just blew my mind!! The location is on the rocks over looking the beautiful water of Antigua. This true chef restaurant with the freshest ingredients exceeded our expectations!

We ate twice at Sheer Rocks on our last trip to Antigua and weren't disappointed. Ingredients all locally sourced and superbly presented. Flavours really delicate and well balanced. Location absolutely stunning overlooking the water although could have done with the walk down slightly more brightly lit ! At the pricey end of the spectrum but we felt it was well... More

Had dinner here after attending a wedding. Very peaceful and romantic atmosphere right on the water. Drinks and food were delicious.. I had roasted vegetables, lobster tail and beef ribs, with a mojito. Everything...including the band that was playing was amazing!!! Only drawback was speed of service.

Wow, what a gem! We were staying at Cocobay and so very lucky that Sheer Rocks was within our resort or just below! A very romantic place to dine with stunning views, outstanding menu and delicious food! Fantastic chill out music playing, the waves gently rolling below, warm sunshine and great atmosphere! A perfect location and the staff so friendly... More
