Treehouse -VERY cool!

A spectacular setting! The wait staff was fantastic. Unfortunately we ate here a couple of days before they closed for the season and they were out of most of their signature dishes. We had slim pickings regarding menu selections. What we ate was very good. I wish we could have had the lobster... read more

Luckily, we went in the off season when there were no crowds and good weather. The outside seating was like eating in a treehouse. The food was well prepared. We all had the fish special which was delicious.

Rock Cafe is a can't miss for us every time we visit Virgin Gorda! The unique sitting of the tables around the rocks and the spectacular menu creates an incredible ambiance for dining! The bonus of coming inside to hear Sam at the piano bar for an after dinner drink is simply the icing on the cake!

The setting is wow, you eat amongst the boulders. Unfortunatelly it rained heavily and despite the umbrellas, we had to move inside, which was an anticlimax. It is not worth sitting inside. The food was ok, but nothing special

Wonderful setting , be sure to eat outside surrounded by the rocks. I had Lobster spaghetti which was wonderful! Sam's piano bar inside had a guy playing music. Great place to eat on Virgin Gorda!

Excellent ambiance among the boulders. Good food, a little pricey but worth the atmosphere. We would return here!

The lobster was the best and so big, that I had to share the dish. There were 10 of us, and the service was impeccable. Make sure you walk up to the treehouse for a gorgeous view of the harbor.

You have to eat @rockcafe while in Virgin Gorda. There's a tree house option or you can sit among extremely large granite boulders. Amazing place, delicious food and great service.

Rock cafe was one of our favorite dining experiences on the island. The atmosphere with outdoor dining, rocks and waterfalls was very peaceful. We started with Martinis and the mussel appetizer. Martinis were perfect and The mussel sauce was amazing! For dinner we shared a pizza and also the lobster saffron pasta. Both were excellent. The pizza we ordered (Caprese)... More
