A short walk from the Marriott Frigate Bay, the food was delicious and the atmosphere far surpasses anything on "the strip" (definitely pass on the strip). We had a group of seven, and the service, although slow, was consistently refilling water glasses and talking with us. An amuse bouche - what a surprise! I wasn't overly hungry and had the... More

my girlfriend and I had one of the best meals of our entire lives when we went to Rock Lobster. The staff were very friendly and made some great food choice recommendations for us. We started off with an appetizer platter, which was highlighted by the bacon wrapped, cheese stuffed jalapanos. Now I like spicy food just like the rest... More

This is our first time down in St. Kitts and our first time at Rock Lobster as well. At first we had no idea what to expect but have read a few reviews on this site thinking we might as well give it a shot. It was about a 10 minute walk from the Marriott hotel and we were greeted... More

We walked here from the Marriott. With reservations they did not seem to know who we were. The staff was pleasant but the service was just average, certainly not what we have experienced at other restaurants on St Kitts. We ate 6 order of tapas and a lion fish appetizer with 4 Carib...the bill was $92 US. The lion fish... More

I have ben a regular at Rock Lobster for years and it serves as a nice change of pace from the beach shack restaurants that dot the southern end of the island. Their menu is a mixture of pasta, seafood, a few grill offerings and a decent tapas menu. On this occasion we both ordered their Spinach, Avocado & Bacon... More

I went to get something to drink, order a beer and ask to the hostess if will be possible to eat at the bar, kindly says yes, i review the menu and saw a fried shrimp with avocado and mango, the plate was simple, but the combination of flavours was stunning, they mixed the avocado with some sort of cream...

We first tried Rock Lobster on our first visit to St. Kitts 6 years ago. We didn't like it at all and gave it a very unfavorable review. We heard that people had eaten there recently and enjoyed it -- so we thought we would give it another try. I must say that we were pleasantly surprised. The food was... More
