Best Ribs in the Caribbean - Right on Cockleshell Beach

Going to Cockelshell Beach so we could have lunch at Lion Rock Beach Bar is one of the best decisions I've ever made. It is a bit of a ride - and kind of an expensive cab ride, (no more so than on the other islands), but the scenery is absolutely breathtaking and once you arrive it is so worth... read more

This was our second trip to St. Kitts and our second time at Lion's. Lion is the real deal -- a great host who puts out delicious food at a reasonable price. Portions are generous and you'd better eat if you're drinking Lion Punch, which really packs a punch (and is delicious). We've gone on Sundays, when some of the... More

We had read some reviews here and they were spot on with recommending this place. Amazing local food prepared fresh while you enjoy amazing views of the water. We had two beers, shrimp entree, and chicken entree all for $40. On land that would cost you double if not more. The employees are fun to talk to and it was... More

We found this place by accident. Lincoln (the manager/owner) approached us when we got out of our taxi. The bar is little more than a beach shack and is painted in vibrant Rastafarian colours. Bar staff consists of other family members. Alcohol was well priced, with imported beers coming in at around $4 each. Opt for the local beers -... More

Stop looking for the beach bar dive. You've found it! The Lion and his lair will take great care of Watch out for the "lion juice" which has a close resemblance to pain killers. It will always devour its prey! Ask for some extra "horny dust" on top!

Authentic Carribean beach bar, wonderfully relaxed atmosphere, and friendly staff. Simple food, and reasonably priced drinks. We hired beach chairs in front of the bar and enjoyed the reggae tunes as we sampled the Lion Punch. Life doesn't get much better!

We drove to Cockelshell beach and came across this bar. It is a very authentic old bar with many flags hanging from the roof. The owner came out and served us some beers and told us he was the only bar on this beach until about 6 years ago when many other bars moved in and took some of his... More

I love to visit Lion's. It is a place like no other. Very rustic and traditional. It makes you happy to not be in a commercialized, trendy restaurant. The food made by Lion himself is amazing.
