We rented Beds on the beach and had lunch here. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. I would highly recommend making a stop here.

Our dinner at On The Rocks was one of the best meals we ever had. The setting is beyond fabulous (see if you can get a table right over the water), the polished wood structure gleams, beautiful table setting, sparkling blue water with jumping fish. It couldn't be more romantic. The food is complex and sophisticated, each plate is a... More

Was in St Barth's for the day shopping and beaching. Didn't have reservations for lunch....don't recommend. Was actually asked to wait in a neighboring restaurant for half an hour to see who showed up for lunch before we were seated. I declined. My family of five went to Eden Rock and even though the restaurant was full they arranged seating... More

Food was delicious, everything we tried was great. Very pricey so get prepared to spend, compared to a full course dinner at Peter Lugars steakhouse in NY with less food. Great views for a vaca dinner.

My husband and I ate here last night. First of all the setting is spectacular!! You eat on a rock on the ocean and the view is spectacular. You must go to the washroom to see how they built them in the side of the rock! The food is outstanding but very pricey! I asked for a plain salad, (They... More

We visited the restaurant on our last day at St. Barths and were impressed by the warm and kind service but also with the food. However the views was what made it very special and romantic. The only issue was that when we went to take our car from the valet, no one was there.. We waited for 5 minutes... More

Understanding that this is St. Barth, one expects expensive fine dining. But a 14 euro bottle of Voss water is for fools. I was a fool. Never again. Ambience and the view are great. Service was excellent - everyone was welcoming and extremely polite. The food was average, compared to other fine restaurants in St. Barth. The wine list was... More

Its location and romantic air are hard to beat ! We managed to get a table on the outer deck, close to the rail and the view of the water of St Jean bay is unforgettable. The menu styled by JeanGeorge offers top meals especially if you like the Mediterranean cuisine. Professional service. Nice atmosphere.PRICEY.
