We had a delicious dinner at Rock Lobster last night. We were shut out of the Monday night lobster dinner at Blu and based on reviews on Trip Advisor we chose Rock Lobster. Excellent choice. They have terrific tapas appetizers-- 4 for $22.. we had the mussels, smoked salmon, calamari and chirozo. My husband and son ordered fish & chips... More

We had dinner here twice as it was cheaper than the Marriott and the service was fantastic. The lobster meal is fantastic and a good value at $40US. Highly recommend reservations as this place fills up in a hurry.

Heard lots of good things so had to try it. The food was good but very expensive with a stuffy atmosphere for the island. I would pass it up and go down to the strip in Frigate Bay for a real island experience.

Had a great seafood meal here. Yummy! Service was GREAT too! They seated us right away without reservations on a busy Friday night. Called a cab for us too. Fresh and tasty fish and shrimp!

The tuna platter was like a religious experience for my husband. He talked about it for days. The presentation was also great. The lobster was not really good. It was not moist and sweet, as I am accustomed to. Service was fast and very friendly.... best service during our entire stay.

We were there in February 2015. We ended up eating there 3 times. They were by far the best meals we ate and after my first night of the Panko coconut crusted lion fish I HAD to go back again! Everyone is very friendly. The chef is excellent. You do need reservations..except we always went early 5:30 instead of 6... More

the Seafood pasta was "fishy" and the pasta just ok. There are simply too many better options to choose from and the prices are not inexpensive for the average food. Have visited St Kitts 6 times over the last 10 years. Will not revisit this place.

wife had lobster, and they served plenty of it. I had mahi mahi....best part was dessert...chocolate lava cake, vanilla ice cream and creme brulee. Weird combo but it worked. Came here in 2010 as well....still a recommend.
