Underwhelmed

First let me start by saying I am a big fan of Jean Georges returners. I enjoy many of his restaurants in New York and frequent them. It's pains me to say that On the rocks left me underwhelmed. The drinks were good, but the food from start to finish was lacking. The ambience is beautiful and... read more

Excellent food, including the sand bar for lunch on the beach. Staff adorable and pro. at night, the view is relaxing and refreshing thanks to the heights of the restaurant.

We enjoyed some drinks at the bar and the wonderful open-air environment on top of the rock overlooking the water and beach. This is top notch - drinks, presentation, service and unfortunately expense. We did not eat there but I can only believe it would be fantastic. Like a Ferrari, if you have to ask, you cannot afford it!

We have come here 3 other times and this was by far the worst experience. We were a large party of 18 and they did not have enough staff to accommodate us. The food was not good either. I expected better from this place for the amount of money we spent. Will not be going back.

The food was mediocre, the service was average and the prices were ridiculously high. We had expected more of the Eden Rock Hotel. We will not recommend and certainly never go back.

... and, of course, a wonderful view! I'll be brief- really fantastic food, including the best foie gras appetizer either my wife or I have ever had. The location is incomparable. And most importantly, the service is perfect. Audrey was absolutely amazing, what was already a great night, she helped turn into a perfect night- thank you, Merci!

What a beautiful location. Food, service and staff are great. Drinks in the bar are top notch- you could tell the bartender really liked what he was doing. We definitely want to stay in the hotel part of this resort very soon.
