Highly recommend if you are looking to get off the resort. Safe and friendly as it comes. Lion and Abraham makes everyone feel welcomed. I was very surprised at the quality of the food. It was fantastic with the Ribs and King fish leading the way. Only steps from the water sport hut...unlike the other bars at cockleshell beach the... More

Great lunch to finish out a morning of exciting watersports. The ribs were great! Tried the lion punch and watched the beach activities.

Stopped by this place as a day trip. Prior to embarking on our cruise like everyone else we looked at things to do in St Kitts including just "beaching it" for the day. Our ride over was by taxi with a hilarious driver who told us about the islands rich history. Total of fare was $7 U.S. each way....The drive... More

Typical tourist shack place. 5 dollars ( US) for a chair & the 5 dollar rum punches are potent. I was turned off from eating here when I asked to use the bathroom .It was beyond disgusting.We ate at the Spice Mill next door.No need for a return visit.

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... 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
