Brilliant... Everything was great... the friendly service.. made you feel at home immediately... The variety of fresh fish, sea food and meats... the concept of stone cooking... and to finish it off your receipt on a personalised post card! Oh and don't forget the artists studio/museum next door... Pirates treasure AHOY!

This restaurant is very atmospheric and you cook your own meat or fish on a hot granite slap of stone. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the price is excellent. If you are staying at one of the two near by hotels then it is a good change from expensive hotel food and the wine and beer are... More

This restaurant looks so promising especially if you are visiting with children. It is so dreadfully let down by the staff though. We had the stone cooked fish which was ok, but when we asked for instructions as to the best way to cook the fish we were answered with 'wait' and a glare. The Pirate theme is really just... More

Maria's rock cafe really provides you with a unique dining experience. The food is super nice as you cook it yourself - however the portions are tiny for the prices you pay.

Enjoyed delicious fresh fish here served on sizzling hot plates that you cook yourself. The fish was served with fresh spices and sauces. The staff were pleasant and the building is really cool too. Reasonably priced too.

We liked cooking our meal on the hot stone plate but the disadvantage is that the hot plate makes a hot place even hotter. This place is badly in need of fans. Several ceiling fans would have made a world of difference.

We came upon this place by chance. The kids loved the 'decor' and they were pleasantly entertained! Service was terrible and the crumpets were ok. It was very quiet, so maybe we just visited on a 'bad' day. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit this place, but it is interesting to see if you happen to be... More

Without a doubt a great find on the narrow winding road to baie lazaire. We had to travel back a second time across the island (from the north) because the kids loved the cooking experience on stones and the food was so good. Coupled with the warm welcome from Maria and her team, would flag as somewhere you should experience.

Really nice place with delicious crepes. The kids loved it also because of the pirate theme decoration! Fast serving by the very friendly staff.
