The On the Rocks restaurant is part of the Eden Rock hotel (relais and chateau). The restaurant is enchanting with a gorgeous view of the bay. I take the fish tartare with mango and was very good. The service was ok, nothing to say but the prices were very high even for st barths

The family which made guests at Hotel du Cap during the reign of M. Irondell feel they were getting something for their bills paid in cash only, failed miserably with us at On the Rocks. The view is special but neither the food nor the service were adequate. I'm in St Barth's and have been coming to Eden Rock for... More

The atmosphere, incredible location and superb menu and wine list made this my favorite spot on the island. The view from high atop the rocky promontory of the crashing surf and coral reef along with the architectural design of the restaurant made you feel like you were floating. Even the aroma of the restaurant - which smells like burning teakwood... More

This was the second time we dined here. Pretty setting on the water but just go to the beach instead. The food was terrible- cod was very fishy tasting and very very small. The sever even asked wht I didn't eat my fish. She laughed it off. No compensation or apology etc. for 56 euro that was ridiculous. My husband... More

Beautiful restaurant , excellent menu with great food. Staff is wonderful and could not do more. They truly want you to enjoy this experience. Set on the top of Eden Roc St jean Bay it is a restaurant not to be missed! It is a Jean George menu so what else needs to be said!

Been coming here for years, the atmosphere and view is incredible. I think the food is some of the best on the island. I do agree it's a little overpriced, but then again what isn't in SB. I would highly recommend anyone who is visiting the island to plan at least one special meal here.

Saved dinner here for our last night on St. Barths. What a wonderful place. Greeted immediately and made to feel comfortable and well informed about the menu. Offered many suggestions.
