We went to this restaurant because this week there was some sort of a challenge that had to do with creating a dish with pumpkin. The food was incredibly good and the service was amazing.

Rock Lobster, being a 5 minute walk from the Marriott, was a good choice for a nice dining experience. As indicated by the name they specialize in seafood entrees. Being Restaurant Week in St. Kitts, I was offered a pre-set 3 course meal with snapper being offered as one of the entree choices. Not normally a huge fan of snapper... More

Food and service were outstanding, but the woman cursing at her mate outside 20 feet from our table hurt the mood. they are building condos all around, and this top notch restaurant should move to a better location.

Rock Lobster was recommended by the hotel. The atmosphere on the outdoor patio was very nice, the service was friendly and attentive, but thought the food was just ok. I ordered calamari and it tasted like it was pre packaged frozen. I did not care for at all. Husband ordered a salad that had too much potato salad mixed into... More

We had just arrived late afternoon at the Marriott and walked here for dinner. It has a lovely terrace and the food was delicious! Very friendly staff, everyone was talking with us, it was a great night. The soups and caper spread with fresh bread was fantastic. I would highly recommend.

Had escargot for an appetizer - spot on. For my entree, I had the butternut squash ravioli. It came with cashews (which I love) but was a little salty for my taste. Service was very nice and pleasant with a smile.

I actually wanted to try this place because I'm a big B52s fan. It's within walking distance of the Marriott. The food was good. Service was good. It is outdoor seating so if you prefer air conditioning, bare this in mind.
