Perched above the clear blue water at Eden Rock sits chef Jean-Georges, "On The Rocks" restaurant, the perfect setting for any occasion. Jeremy at Smart Guide, booked our reservation for 5 and ensured that we got a primo table with views. The menu is innovative including seafood, vegetarian, and dishes for meat lovers alike. Highly recommend.

While I was expecting On the Rocks to have decent food, I also (wrongly) assumed it would be more 'see and be seen'. On the Rocks delivered great food, great service and a great ambience. Highlights from the table were the lobster medallions, the scallops and the beef. All dishes were prepared perfectly and with some imagination that we had... More

This is one of the most expensive restaurants, on an expensive island, and the food and venue is good enough to be highly recommended despite mediocre service. The kitchen is well under control. Our meal was simply some of the best food we've ever had, and we are foodies. The truffle salad was about a $35 appetizer salad, but we'd... More

This was a fabulous dining experience! The food was amazing, the view was second to none and the service was fantastic. Don't miss out on any of the experience. Order cocktails, appetizers, entrée and dessert and don't worry about the price, it will be worth it!

This was one of the top places we were recommended to try on our Honeymoon in St. Barts. We made a reservation for dinner on a Wednesday evening and were promptly seated.

Everyone knows how amazing the Eden Rock is. If your budget does not allow you to stay (or even eat) there, just go for an amazing cocktail. Don't be shy - they'll treat as if you were a billionaire ;-) Enjoy your cocktail not at the Sand Bar on the beach but on one of their terrasses... on the rock.... More

One of the reasons we came in November was to enjoy French culinary week. On the Rocks, on top of being super hip/perched over the water, was a first rate experience.
