Nice restaurant in front of the water

Is a small but very nice island in North Sound. Very nice views from the restaurant that is in a wooden deck almost in the water. Is a very good place to have a dinner, drinks, wine or a bottle of champagne. They can pick you up in a eater taxi. Also is a very good place to stay in... read more

My husband and I went to Saba Rock twice whilst we stayed in Virgin Gorda. The food is typically American, huge portions and palatable but not special. What is special are the viewing options; the boats in the harbour on one side, Larry Page's island on the other, a small beach where you can sip your cocktails as you watch... More

We sailed into harbor, tied up to a mooring and dinghy'd ashore. We spend the night drinking painkillers and eating Caribbean cuisine. This place looks, sounds, and feels like an island travel brochure: hard to do better. If you chartered a boat and want a place to spend an evening, this comes highly recommended. There are of course other things... More

The restaurant/resort is located on a rock in Gorda Sound. The atmosphere is cheery, the view is tremendous (either to the east or the west) and the sunsets are outstanding. The food is typical Caribbean fare served with a smile. Not to be missed is the Tarpon feeding!

We loved everything about Saba Rock so much that even though there are a ton of restaurants to choose from in the BVI, we ate there twice during our 6 day visit. The atmosphere, the food, the service, everything was awesome. We got a drink at the bar and took it out to the back deck and sat overlooking the... More

This tiny island next to the Bitter End Yacht Club is another must-see if you're staying on or near Virgin Gorda. We had lunch at the restaurant, and hung out on the island all afternoon. We had the tropical tacos with jerk chicken, and the chicken lettuce wraps, along with a few beers, and a pina colada. We also stayed... More
