Do the Rock

Call them and they'll send their boat to pick you up at Gun Creek or take your dinghy over. Good food, a fun bar (with a separate dining option) and wonderful staff. Do the Rock!

First let me say the Restaurant is beautiful, the views down the bay to all of the boats and yachts. The service and food were pretty bad. Our server seemed like she did not want to be there working. We ordered Calamari as a starter, never received it. Ordered drinks, some never came. I ordered the Commodore's pasta. There was... More

The food here was good, the flavor was great, the specialties were fantastic, pricing was ok but the service was so poor that it ruined the meal. Two hours to have a 2 course dinner and our drinks were empty, we only had two as the waiter got lost in between the appetizer and dinner then again after dinner was... More

My girlfriend and I had lunch before going on a helicopter tour leaving from Saba Rock. The food was delicious and the staff friendly. After returning from our helicopter ride, we had a tight timeline to get back to the main island of Virgin Gorda and when I mentioned it to the manager, she arranged a ferry back for us... More

Resort, Restaurant and Mooring fields. The moorings at Saba Rock appear to be well-maintained, and the restaurant at the resort offers a variety of delicious choices. I have stayed in the hotel in the past and found the rooms reasonably clean but not fancy. The fish tacos on the bar menu are among my must have meals when I visit... More

I was not overly impressed with Saba Rock. The food was ok, the service was ok, the beer was ok. And it was very top dollar. Although the building itself and atmosphere was great

When you make it to Saba Rock for a meal and a drink, the food simply doesnt matter. Truly one of the most beautful places in the world that you could be stuck having a drink and a meal. However, all of our food was good, the fish tacos were a bit weird because they were just fish and cheese... More

My wife and I were brought here by our local friend and we were not disappointed. We both had a burger and they were amazing and not overpriced either. I had the BBQ burger and my wife had the Ibiza. The white sand, palm trees, and hammocks are great for relaxing and looking out at the amazing ocean waters while... More

After catching a mooring, we hung out in the bar before changing tables for dinner. This restaurant has one of the best locations in the BVIs; I guess they don't think they have to do much with the food to be successful. My wife had a pasta dish, I followed the recommendation of our server and ordered the yellow snapper.... More
