Were it not for the location, you could skip this place entirely. But the location is magical: it's perched on a rocky outcropping that divides St Jean beach, has a lovely and dramatic entrance and a very European feeling, with all sorts of neat little nooks and crannies. And the sunsets are simply out of this world! Unfortunately, that's about... More

Good food at the Eden Rock, but does not have the usual characteristics of a Jean-George Vongerichten menu. I was surprised given his restaurant in NYC, and how good the food is there.

This review is of Chef Jean-Georges' On The Rocks dinner Restaurant at the Eden Rock Hotel which was received a AAA 4 Diamond Award yet again for 2014. Food: We were nonplussed by virtually every appetizer sampled on their "Black Plate". The crispy sushi was deep fried rice with sushi fish atop. The flavors did not come through and one... More

My boyfriend found this restaurant and decided we should go here for our day trip on St. Barts. Nice place, but I will never go again. The cab ride just to get from the fast ferry that took us to St. Barts was $30 US, this was a 5-8 min cab ride. We clearly got hosed. Once we arrived, which... More

On the Rocks redeemed my feelings about St. Bart's restaurants. The food, service and ambiance were outstanding. They offered a variety of choices (including vegetarian options). The bill, while expensive, was accurate. We ate at 3 restaurants before On the Rocks in St. Bart's and the bills were all padded. One restaurant added 10 euros to the price of wine,... More

Terrific location perched high on the rocks so its a long climb up to the bar.The caiparinha was very good, short, small, tight and tasty. It was late, we wanted a small bite and we had a caesar salad and a shrimp salad. both very good, atmosphere better. Could not have been happier. being right there made all the difference!... More

Aside from the excellent food, we had seafood, the setting is fantastic. Right on the beach, with a beautiful verandah and impeccable service. I'd go again.

After eating lunch at the Sand Bar, we decided to have our last dinner at On The Rocks and everyone agreed it was the best decision. To begin, the atmosphere is hard to beat. Chic and on the water - it was perfect St Barths. It was even raining when we were there and it hardly mattered. Second, the food... More
