Went by on Sunday - found out they only do lunch - I heard this was 1-4. Got there by 3:30 on Monday, they had stopped serving for lunch. Turns out they start around 12:30 or 1:00 and go until there are no more customers. Was successful on Tuesday. Super friendly and attentive staff. Prices are typical for this type... More

Lion Rock is a little shack setting just each of the Spice Mill. They have lounge chairs to rent if you want to spend the day at the beach soaking up the rays and looking at Nevis. The beach is wide, sandy and perfectly clear. The food offerings are typical for the local shacks (chicken, ribs, fish...) but the blending... More

All the good stuff about Cockleshell is true, it's a nice beach with an unmissable lunch venue - lions beach bar. It's just a shack really, a bit shabby but that's its charm. The food is great, salads and veg including plantain and rice and peas with chicken or fish or shrimps or ribs. No burgers and chips here, thank... More

This is an excellent place to unwind. The beers are cold, but you have to try his rum punch, no sorry Lion Punch, it is not like other overly sweet punches, it pulls you in and you definitely need to have two. As this is very personal cooking and not mass production, come early for lunch and/or order before you... More

This very modest beach setting restaurant, has some of the best food in the island. With 4 items to choose from (chicken, fish, shrimp or ribs) there is something for everyone. All dishes come with plenty of delicious sides, and of course don't forget to order the Lion Punch!

We spent the day at Cockleshell back and had lunch here. The portions are HUGE and the food is very fresh. We got the fish and it came in a great sauce with rice and vegetables. It was a great meal overlooking a beautiful beach.
