The environment is lovely and the food was great. Great view of the bay. The staff are very friendly. The food took a while to come out but we were all able to sit around and talk while waiting. Just remember it is Tapas!

Visited this restaurant a couple of weeks ago during happy hour. There was a smaller menu available which was fine with us since there full menu has no many options. Plus two-for-one was a bonus. Enjoyed the mango mojitos as well as tacos and flatbread....More

The food quality was excellent. The portion size (even for tapas) was smaller than I was accustomed to receiving. If you are not very hungry and like high quality food, this is the place for you.More

Hi there, thanks for sharing your feedback. We're sorry that you felt the portions were a little small, and that you didn't receive value for money. Unfortunately, on a small island we have to import almost everything that we serve, which pushes the prices up....More

We tried this restaurant when in the area. Really enjoyed sitting on the patio. Food was very good and no too expensive. A table of five split a round of tapas and we all had the Paella for a main course.More

Food service was slow, not sure the reason for the hold up, but seemed to stem from the kitchen. Venue is OK, certainly accessible for hotel guests in the area.More

Enjoyed the location and the service and most of the food. did not enjoy the Sangria and sent it back, it did not appear on the bill and overall a good dining experience. Worth trying!

Description
With its Spanish-inspired decor and menu of 'little dishes from around the world', Tapas On The Bay is tucked into a breezy corner of Rodney Bay marina lagoon, where a steady breeze blows across the calm waters and cools its spacious covered deck. The long, Soufriere stone clad bar is perfect for enjoying a quick lunch or dinner, and the secluded location makes Tapas On The Bay a great place to relax and chill out. Taking traditional tapas as a base, Chef Rosie incorporates Caribbean and international influences, creating innovative new bite-sized dishes with local ingredients and flavours, serving them on sharing platters for a very social eating experience. There are also plenty of delicious entrees and yummy desserts to round out the menu. Throw in some excellent wines, three different types of sangria and boozy cocktails by the jug, and Tapas On The Bay could be your next favourite dining spot in Saint Lucia. Open for brunch from 10am to 3pm, happy hour from 4pm to 6pm and dinner from 6pm to 10pm (11pm Saturday and Sunday). Closed Tuesdays.
