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

We had cocktails - Mai Tai and Mojito and chicken skewers with a very tasty sauce and a salad that was fresh. The sandwich we had (forgot already) was super fresh and delish! The atmosphere and the fact you can lounge here all day watching the boats and beautiful water is a plus. Go, eat, relax, and enjoy the vibe.

Loved the location, went for lunch via our dingy, then took their ferry over for dinner. Great lunches and even better Buffett. Will go back there of course!

Great setting, on this luscious 1 1/2 acre island in Virgin Gorda. Happy Hour gives reasonable prices. Food prices are in line with the setting - it's not "where the locals go." We had fish and chips at the bar with 3 small slices of fish, and plenty of chips. Loved the tarpon feeding at 5PM. Those are some monster... More

The highlight of the meal was the atmosphere and the boat ride to/from Leverick Bay. The meal was good. We started with Calamari as an app(ok). For dinner we had seared Tuna and the flank steak. Both were average nothing out of this world. I would recommend going however, as the experience is worth it.

We had a lovely lunch of fresh fish, then spent the afternoon in their wonderful hammocks on their little beach. This is a perfect spot away from the tourists
