Description: With a reputation that far exceeds its modest size, Saba Rock boasts not only a famous over the water lounge bar and restaurant, but also an 8 bedroom hotel, 10 slip marina, gift shop, gardens and sun deck. Saba Rock Restaurant is one of the more respected establishments in the British Virgin Islands, offering both a lounge menu and a dinner menu with a wide selection of seafood (including local conch and lobster in season), salads and grills. The boutique hotel, which is consistently ranked among the top hotels in the BVI, is accessible via a 10 minute ferry ride from Virgin Gorda. Alternatively, you can arrive on your own boat and take a slip in the Marina. The Saba Rock ferry is available to pick up guests from any dock in the North Sound, simply phone ahead (1 284 495 7711) or hail us on VHF channel 16 to make arrangements. Reservations in advance are recommended for the Hotel, Marina and Restaurant. We look forward to your visit!

“Great atmosphere and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Mostly known to the sailing crowd, this tiny island hosts a hotel/restaurant. The drinks are excellent and the food very good. I did not look at a room but spending $125 for a night in AC, with hot shower, sleeping on clean crisp sheets has to be worth every penny after a week or so aboard a sailboat. The drink and beer menu is extensive. The food isn't fancy but tasty, with generous portions. Every evening just before sundown, they feed the tarpon cruising at water's edge. Those fish are tremendous and certainly enjoy the handouts. There is free water taxi from several ports on eastern end of Virgin Gorda, as is true for Bitter End Yacht club, which lies just across a narrow channel from Saba Rock.

“Great Dinner with Outstanding View!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

We were a group of 8 last week for dinner here. The atmosphere and scenery is spectacular. Loved looking out into the lighted water while we were dining. I had a pasta dish filled with lobster, shrimp and mussels. Quite delicious and the salad bar was superb! Everyone enjoyed their dinner and we had no problems with slow service. Would definitely go back!!

“never again!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

We have been traveling in the Caribbean for over 25 years. We know all about island time, But Saba Rock Restaurant is even slower than island time. We had 7:30 reserveations and not served our food until way after 9:00 pm..there were 10 of us in the group and the dinners came out one at a time with long time spaces between..the wine was placed on the table unopened we had to go find a corkscrew...... the food was overpriced and really terrible....There are so many other restaurants in the BVI that are so much better...stay away from this one!
