Food is good, but menu very limited. Wine list is standard as per Sands their other restaurant, which is not a problem. Prices are Eden Rock prices simply because thats where it is. The food does not live up to the price commanded and there is a better restaurant on the island!

the name of Jean-George attracted us to this restaurant but it appears that this is only a name. I have been to the Jean-George restaurant in New York and this place was nothing like it. When you are paying 65 Euros (!) for a mian course, you expect something amazing. I have to say that the fish was below par... More

Dear Ppatel, Thank you for taking the time to send this review and we regret that you found dinner at the On the Rocks restaurant not to be the good value that we strive for.

We add appetizers and wine or cocktails at the bar only due to the prices of dinner for our taste and mood. Lobster tacos and wine one night and Cheese/Fried Yumminess another night with cocktails. The bartenders were very knowledgeable about drinks! Ordered a Sex on the Rock and it was amazing. My husband had a perfect Dirty Martini!

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 the staff was... More

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!
