I had a terrible experience in this restaurant last night. We arrived at 7:30pm and didn't get our dinner until 8:45pm it was just a plater of 6 different tapas and a flat bread (not rocket science). To top it all off the food was bad it lack flavor and the bread was put on the table after we had... More

Came across this little gem whilst looking for a bit of lunch. We went back several times and were made to feel very welcome indeed. Great food and great service. Highly recommend

Enjoyed both a St. Lucian style breakfast and a tapas dinner during our week in the area. The staff was excellent and we're happy to accommodate my son's guide dog. The food was fantastic. The view of the bay added to the relaxing enjoyment of our meals. Well done!

Nice restaurant with a really nice atmosphere and decent food. Overlooking the water, which makes it more special than the average tapas restaurant. Staff is friendly.

There were a number of positive reviews and we expected more that we actually received from the visit. The food was particularly average, missing some of the taste that you would have expected, most of the meat had the underlying taste of five spice, no matter what it was, from the beef kababs through to the chorizo sausage. You are... More

The location was beautiful with outdoor tables that offered a view of the harbour, Service was friendly and if you are celebrating a birthday they give you free dessert and a glass of champagne. Food was good and presentation was spot on. prices were okay too.

My husband and I recently dined in this restaurant. The tapas was beautiful and every dish was plentiful and delicious. The ambience was excellent and staff and service made us feel quite special. Although we are in our late sixties this restaurant is certainly very suitable for all age groups. Piano music and singer were very enjoyable in background. Hope... More

Why be restricted to an entree and a main when you can order 4,5 or 6 different "meals". I like taste sensations and the Spanish tapas style is the way to try many different foods of the mediteranian type. Great location , cheap beer.

Decided to go back to Tapas on the Bay having not been able to make it during our last trip due to the rain, so we decided we had to give it another go, & we weren't disappointed. We decided to have one of the set Tapas selections which we found to be both varied & very well balanced with... More
