Paella was outstanding

I had the paella and it had the best sausage i think i have ever eaten, smokey and sweet. My son's steak was outstanding. The fans in the outside seating are annoying but the food overall including my pesto mushroom appetizer were fantastic.

The ambience is ok and the food is also ok - they don't really offer anything too different to other restaurants in the area. We got very bored being told that everything we ordered was "an excellent choice" and we were more than a little taken aback by the size of the bill. £108.00 for two pre-dinner drinks, one bottle...

Rock Lobster is certainly a casual very friendly place, a short walk from the Marriott Hotel and Casino, and therefore convenient for tourists and guests. The concierge highly recommended the place for its Lobster and made reservations for 6:30 PM. We arrived at 6:20 and gave the host our name which was no where on the reservation list. They did...

This is the restaurant you must go to once in St.Kitts. We stayed at Marriott and looked for nearby places for dinner, Rock Lobster was highly recommended by locals and previous reviews on trip advisor. We confirm all the credits! We had good red wine (price was good compared with other restaurants) and a Mixed seafood platter (although for 1... More

We have only two more nights left of our wonderful vacay so we debated among several restaurants for dinner this evening. Having had seafood last night, we were skeptical about having it again tonight.....but, man, am I glad we chose Rock Lobster. First off, it's a quick walk from the Marriott (but we used a taxi to return because we... More

We kept going back to the Rock Lobster four times on our last trip. The food was excellent and the staff were most friendly and attentive. We had to share the enormous, dramatic seafood platter dominated by lobster and crabs legs with clams and mussels in support. The mussels were also as good as any I have had in Brussels... More

They had fresh fish offerings (unlike the Marriott) so that was nice. Portions were large, everything tasted good. Great waiter. Liked we could walk to it from the Marriott.

It is getting a little more expensive that it used to be but its still completely full most nights - the service is great and its a quick walk up the road from the Marriott. We ate there 3 times this visit and the menu is really good and the portions a good size. Also, the staff are good at... More

First night in St Kitts, stopped in at Rock Lobster, it is conveniently located on the road to the Marriott (Zenway). The service was very good and friendly, The Poke appetizer was a great surprise. The Mahi Mahi was fresh caught and well cooked. Also the Paella was terrific. The only issue was that the prices were expensive. But, it... More
