The setting is memorable but the food was average and the wait staff not the most attentive to your needs if you ask for something and did not come back to offer more water. Had to drink others' at the table. Was good for a visit. Would not go back.

Wonderful service and atmosphere! The food and wine were good too. I rarely take the time to comment but I feel this restaurant offers a great combo of ambiance, food and service. They have live music that is lively and fun. Don't miss the gigantic lobsters when you walk in!

We were lobbied when we arrived at the Virgin Gorda Marina and had promised ourselves lobster so 'went for it'. The place doesn't look much from the road but the dinning area out the back amongst the boulders is charming with imaginative decking at different levels, fairy lights, parasols and greenery. We both had the baked lobster and it was... More

The setting outside is beautiful among the boulders. Food is excellent and service very good. A few lighter choices on the menu would be nice but great for a special dinner. William is an excellent server.

We were very disappointed in our meal at Rock Cafe. The setting, which should have been spectacular amongst all the boulders, was considerably less inviting than the fire pit and couches of CocoMaya, for example, or the panoramic views at Hog Heaven. The food -- we tried the house special lobster pasta, the lobster, and a special salad -- was... More

It was a unique setting among the rocks and a fairly divers menu. The service was bit off in pace and a it was a bit pricey for the quality.

The Rock Cafe is a mandatory dinner stop for us when in Virgin Gorda since the ambiance of sitting at a semi-private table nestled in between huge boulders shouldn't be missed. Our favorite is lobster spaghetti although the rest of the menu offerings are excellent. The inside bar often has live entertainment which encourages camaraderie but discourages much conversation.
