I visited Virgin Gorda for a week's vacation in July 2016. The Rock Café was recommended for dinner, particularly for the lobster. The lobster was superb. Slap your mama superb! The food, decor, location landscaping and service was impeccable.

I can qualify that by adding "of restaurants open in August" which isn't all that many. Of those we ate at though, we liked the Rock Cafe best. There's an indoor bar area and some nice outdoors decks around waterfalls and boulders.

The atmosphere of The Rock is one of incredible tranquility. One that you can enjoy a quiet dinner. Food is outstanding, service is perfect. Not overbearing but your wait person is always there when they are needed.

Quiet dining in a unique tree top location. Just a few tables and you feel very secluded. The breeze was lovely and the level of service very attentive. We had just put our boat on the hard for hurricane season and we're heading home in a couple of days and wanted a good meal in a lovely location. Totally fit... More

He had the margarita pizza with lobster, I had the Cesar salad. Being June the restaurant was expectedly empty. Patrick, the amazing server, was cognizant of my dairy sensitivity and wasn't sure if... More
