Great dinner views!

Food here is excellent, we had a blast! Good service as I recall too. Saba is always on our list of places to stop over when we charter. Always look forward to going back!

Saba Rock is a hotel and restaurant on a rock and it is hard to tell where one ends and the other begins. the only way to get there is by dinghy or the water taxi that scuttels to and fro'.That creates for a very special atmosphere, drinking or dining on the dockside watching the sun set over Virgin Gorda....

Our last meal at Saba Rock was a disaster with a mushy, nasty lobster and inattentive service. It's taken a long time for us to come back, but we ate lunch there last week and had a pleasant meal. We both had their ceasar salad with grilled chicken and a couple of Bushwackers. Both the salad and Bushwackers were great.... More

Our family had a great afternoon and night here! It's a bit pricey and definitely meant for tourist but they have a great happy hour so grab a drink and sit on one of the beautiful comfy outdoor sofas and relax as you stare out into the Caribbean. There is a fantastic salad bar there for dinner as well as... More

One of our 8 asked for tap water, the waiter was resistant (because free?). She brought him a glass of water garnished with lime but filled with salt. He gulped and almost vomited. She was rude before during and after but how the managers handled it was the truly atrocious part. No less then 3 Manager's came to our table,... More

If you ever happen to be in the Virgin Islands don't miss to spend lunch time (or dinner time or just stop by at any time) in this unique place. You won't be impressed by the quality of the food (fairly acceptable for the VI standards and reasonably priced) nor by the speed of the service (yes, if you think... More

We moored here overnight and were met by several turtles swimming past the boat, which kept us amused. We also were able to watch the Rays swimming about and spotted some beautiful jellyfish. We went to the bar for a drink where they had an enormous fish tank with lights in the sea do you could see the fish swimming... More

Stopped here whilst on a boat ride from Necker Island, really great spot. The guys were friendly if a little slow buy hey who was in a rush. Friends had the conch fritters which they loved but I stuck with just a milkshake which was awesome. Worth s visit.

We moored our charter boat in front. We got free ice and water with our mooring fee. Nice little island to get out and stretch your legs. The tarpon feeding at 5pm on the dock is great and do not miss. Food was good and reasonable if you ask for the pub/lounge menu. The dinner menu served after 6pm is... More
