Nice view and food but over priced

We came here twice on our holiday as the food is very nice, great for brunch and lunch. The location is nice, you can sit and look our over the marina. It is expensive here though, more expensive than you would pay for tapas in London, which I think is unnecessary because if it had been cheaper we... read more

We had the carnivore tapas selection and did not leave a single bite! A little expensive, but worth every bit. Service was excellent. We'd do it again! (Watch for fish jumping out of the water!)

Went to this place twice for lunch. The menu is reasonably varied, the food is extremely good, but the service especially on our 2nd visit was poor. If you are not pushed for time (most people aren't whilst away) it is definitely worth a visit for the quality of the food.

Mushroom on Toast was very good. My wife enjoyed a egg white omelet which she enjoyed. It was a good portion. My daughter enjoyed a heart chicken sandwich.

pretty restaurant on the waterfront. Ceviche was horrible, tapas items were acceptable but not as wonderful as ratings imply! Very limited wine and beer choices on the island for some reason!

We went there for our NYE dinner. There was a prefix dinner menu and the food was average. Dorado fish was okay and the appetizers were just edible.

Came here with a group of 15 for dinner and ended up spending roughly 4 hours at dinner waiting for everything. The food was superb, but not worth the price - especially for the quantity.

We visited Tapas on the Bay for dinner in November. We both tried the saltfish flatbread and lobster burger and ended up returning for the same on two further occasions. We tried an octopus starter too, which was rather small and uninspiring, but the other two dishes were memorable and worth going back for. Staff were universally charming and the... More

We just came from having dinner at this place. Besides the overprice menu (best example a beer which cost 37 ec about 7 times more than any regular bar at the street) i must say the food quantity and quality doesn't match a 180 EC per person. I have been in Spain and I am aware that I can not... More

Just came back from St. Lucia - great dinner at "Tapas on the Bay" - romantic, quiet. The food was delicious and innovative. Great seafood.
