“Fantastic Drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

We didn't eat here because we had heard that the food had gone downhill and was way over-priced. $48 euro for 6 oysters on the half shell is not for me. Anywhoo, we did do drinks here for happy hour to take in the view. The staff was great and the drink list was nice too. We will always do drinks here, but never dinner.

“A must in St. Barths”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

We had an amazing lunch with the best view in St. Barths. The service was very good and the food excellent. It's a little expensive, but worth it.

“Awesome location, but overpriced food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

There isn't another place like On The Rocks on St. Bart's but I'm not sure thats a bad thing. We loved our table at the end of the deck and the service was pretty good as far as french service goes. The food left much to be desired and was kind of blah- nothing mind-blowingly creative, at least from what we ordered. The tuna tar tar was doused in some kind of soy sauce concoction which made it pretty unbearable. A great location with awesome potential.
On a side note, we celebrated a birthday here and they brought out chocolates and a sparkler without asking which was a nice touch!

“Pretty view, everything else... POOR”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

We are staying at the Eden Rock hotel and went for dinner at On the Rocks the first night in St Barths. The view is lovely, there is no mistake about that but the food and service was poor at best. There are much better places to go for dinner on the island. I'd suggest coming for a cocktail at the bar to take advantage of the view, but wouldn't bother staying for dinner.

“On the Rocks restaurant by Jean Georges”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Brought lots of €'s because we thought it would be worth it. Nope.
Drinks mediocre- hardly any booze in them.
Dinner was dull. We did like the poached egg and porcini app.
But fish was , well, boring. Simply cooked- yeah no kidding!
Service was lousy. We have eaten at other Jean Georges restaurants and
expected more.
Best spend your money on lunch at the Sand Bar- better food and great view of St.Jean beach.
