Simply the best food on the island

We came back to Sheer Rocks again and again during our 2 week stay. The food was addictive, hands down the best in Antigua, and better than some Michelin restaurants in London... I tried a variety of dishes and each one blew me away. My favourite had to be the Coconut Curry, which was orgasmic, it... read more

Each time we come to Antigua we just have to return to Sheer Rocks both for their amazing lunchtime tapas and also the superb a la carte evening menu. This restaurant enjoys an outstanding location and when you add to this the quality of food and friendly relaxed service, it combines to be a truly wonderful experience. We are not... More

Nice place but a bit pricey. Cocktails are very good though. It is just down the steps from the hotel

Sheer Rocks is a firm favourite, each time we visit Antigua. We took some friends there a few days ago and it got 5 stars all round - no mean feat, as they can be a fussy bunch! We chose to go back again to celebrate our anniversary and we both said we couldn't think of any other place we'd... More

Food was delicious, but the service was terrible. We waited for a very long time between our starter and our main course. Then, when our main arrived, they forgot our side order of vegetables. When we told them about this half way through our main course, the waitress went away and then just plonked it onto our table without an... More

What a truly memorable experience!! I did some research before we went to Antigua and wanted to dine somewhere special for our wedding anniversary and this surpassed my expectations!! From when you pull up to the boutique hotel that the restaurant is in to the amazing tropical views. The restaurant is built on the side of the cliff over looking... More

I was in Antigua for two weeks and, although a small island, there is a lot to do. Enough to warrant not going back somewhere a second time... Sheer Rocks was hands down the best place I went in Antigua, and the only place I went back to. Check out the photo's to see the location... By day the views... More

This was our 3rd trip to Antigua, and each time we have visited this restaurant. The ownership has changed since our last visit, but the service is still impeccable and the views spectacular! This is a very small restaurant and each table is situated such that it is a vey private dining experience. The service was great, however, the food... More
