We had always eaten at Coco Maya in Virgin Gorda but since it was closed last night we tried out this place. We were six adults and three babies. The service was excellent, no excessive waiting, which is often a big issue with restaurants in the BVI, the premises were lovely and the food fantastic. Highly recommended.

the restaurant has several seating areas, a piano bar, a garden area, and the tree top. We sat in the garden section. It was Very nice. Staff was attentive, but did function on island time. Food was better than average, but we have had better. Lobster was over cooked and already split, meat tough. Signature dish was okay, again over... More

We were so impressed with the intimate dining spaces they have carved around all the natural boulders. We were tucked into a spot that was perfect for our 3 generation family dinner. Our server, Jenny, was so warm and wonderful to us. Jenny went above and beyond to make our evening so special... she even surprised our "soon to be... More

Eight of us were seated in a secluded area surrounded by boulders and a water feature. We enjoyed fresh salads, eggplant pram. and pizzas. I have read others complaints about the pizza but, we would each disagree - we had three different (meat lovers, three cheese and caprese). there is also a very reasonable wine list and we enjoyed a...

We went with another couple and because we had all eaten here before (some 5 years previous) we had high expectations. It had been a lovely venue. Not so much now. We arrived slightly early to get a cocktail in the bar. The decor is tacky, the piano player was atrocious (we played "guess which well known tune is being... More

Reserve a spot in the tree house for great views, service and good food. They have a good wine selection as well. Stay clear of what they call sea bass, cause it was not sea bass. More like tilapia. I'd recommend the mahi mahi.

The food was delicious with a unique setting. You should also try the Treetop Restaurant, however it is a little pricey.

My wife and I made a reservation at Rock Cafe (downstairs.....not at The Tree House) . The tree house is more gourmet and quite expensive. When we arrived they brought us to the Tree House. I didn't like that switch....but said OK because we were on vacation. The staff and food at the Tree House was very good. Small portions....but... More

This was our second visit to the Rock Restaurant. We were seated outside up the stairs at a table for two by the waterfall. The ambiance and surrounding boulders and lighting was like a scene from Survivor! Service was excellent and food was superb. Virgin Gorda is expensive anywhere you may choose to dine because everything has to be double... More
