Arrived and the host walked us out and up to a beautiful romantic table by the boulders.It was nice to dine in the natural setting under the stars. Our waitress Eve was very attentive and gave us good... More

The bill has an auto grat but he asked for more and we just laughed it off and ignored it. But he didn't like it. Didn't impact our night. Briefly kareoked afterwards. They have... More

The food was good and they're open pretty late. They had a major HBO fight and that was drawing many of the locals into the place which was pretty cool.

We came here twice. The back patio is amongst the beautiful boulders that dot the shoreline. Water fountains and chirping birds really added to the atmosphere. The food was very good. We had lobster and the chicken penne. I would say it was up with NYC quality food. Very happy with the meal and the service. A few rogue cats... More

The food and wine here is good. On our visit, it rained so we ended up stuck inside. The restaurant atmosphere and staff are very nice. What made this visit special for us was the live music. There is usually a piano player but on this occasion, there was a guitar player, a man who was likely pushing 70 that... More

The rock has introduced a new menu and it is excellent. the ceasar salad id the Best! Everything has been delicious and is a good value. Sitting outside in the elevated dining area by the waterfall should be your goal. You will be in a tropical paradise with loved ones eating great food. Can you ever beat that?

My friends order pizzas than was good too. The highlight of the high was the veggie lasagna comes so pretty and my friend said that... More

The Rock café has a new manager, Carl, who is incredibly accommodating, friendly and fun to be with. He also managed to get Morris, an island "treasure" out of retirement and playing music again! The service is professional and the food is good. The vegetarian dishes are quite good. There is something magical about eating outside between the boulders and... More

Visited few weeks ago. Went there on the recomendation of the taxi driver. And we were very happy that we asked him. The place is beautiful. The tables are situated in the middle of the rocks and that gives it a very romantic atmosphere. The food and drinks were delicious. Definitely one of my favorite restaurants on the island.

Thank Antonia R
