“Excellent Local”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Picturesque beach setting with the island of Nevis across the channel. For some real local flavor excellent local food. Everyone talks about the rum punch and I can vouch for it as well. A charming little beach bar with great proprietors. Will gladly go again...

“Best Punch in the Carib”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

I just Love going to Lion"s for a drink. The beach is calm, the view fantastic and the punch with ground nutmeg ... Well have someone else drive afterwards!

“A Must Do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

A visit to St Kitts wouldn't be complete without a visit to Lion and Angela's bar on Cockleshell Beach. The food is tasty and beautifully presented. The atmosphere is lively but relaxed. Great punch too.

“SIMPLY THE BEST!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

We found the Lion Rock Beach Bar when we had a day in St. Kitts. We asked the best taxi driver/tour guide on the island "Neon Deon," to take us somewhere for authentic island food. After a bumpy ride to cockleshell beach we ended up at an unassuming place (really a shack) on the beach. Lion, the proprietor of Lion Rock Beach bar had three things on the menu: Ribs, chicken or fish, and he had a cooler full of ice cold beer. My wife and I ordered the fish and a few ice cold beers. Simply the BEST FOOD and the BEST PEOPLE on our trip to the southern Caribbean. There is nothing more relaxing than enjoying great food, great local company and great music all while sitting on a pristine beach overlooking Nevis and being able to watch your kids play in gin clear water. Truly an exceptional experience. If you visit St. Kitts and skip the Lion rock Beach Bar, you simply have not visited St. Kitts. Go for the day, expect to take your time, meet great people, and enjoy a one of a kind experience. And if you need a ride, ask for "Neon Deon," everyone on the island really does know him, and he gives an amazing Island tour at a price that you can't beat.
