We ate at Rock Lobster on a Thursday night in June. I should have eaten their lobster, which my wife ordered and enjoyed, but I went for the paella. I'm a big fan of paella and when I saw it on the menu I knew I needed to check it out. It was a big disappointment. It was obvious that... More

We had dinner here to enjoy something away from the Marriott. The service was great. Everyone was charming and we didn't wait long for anything. The food was good, but expensive. It was not fancy but not a dive, either. The menu was varied enough that everyone could find something they wanted to eat.

This is a full service restaurant with good food and very good service, quite a shock for the Caribbean. We ordered the pasta. The ravioli was made from scratch and the seafood pasta not and therefore not quite as nice but also good. There is lots of seafood direct from the ocean and better than average. The restaurant locale and... More

The service is wonderful and the food is worth the price! I had the lobster and allow me to say that it is probably one of the best lobsters I have had in a long time. I would recommend this place to anyone. It is a little pricey but worth every penny!

We are here after almost a full week in St Kitts. Walkable from Marriott. Dog laying in back door of restaurant was both charming and alarming. Lion fish was excellent (my sister ate that). Fish and chips -nothing to write home about. Expensive. Bread brought out before meal was appreciated. Will not go back.

Nice local spot, but it is expensive. The Lobster is good, but not as good as Main lobster. It is tougher than what you get on east coast. Service is great and within walking distance from Marriott hotel.

We dropped in without reservations, were seated immediately and the wait staff was great. The portions are large so I hope you have a fridge. My husband and I split the watermelon-spinach salad as an appetizer and I would estimate that there was a 8 oz bag of baby spinach plus other stuff on the plate. He had red snapper... More

We went to Rock Lobster on our first night in St. Kitts. Restaurant was busy but we were seated quickly. The menu has a wide selection. My wife had the chicken enchiladas and I had the fish and chips. Serving were very large and the food was very good, so much so that we went back twice more. The second... More

Sat outside and enjoyed Lion Fish, Lobster and fun with staff. It was my 3rd night in a row of Lobster and it did not disappoint. The food was worth the walk from the Marriott.
