This was our last meal before leaving St Lucia. The views are beautiful over looking the bay. When we went around 2pm the restaurant was pretty much empty. We sat outside facing the waterfront looking at yachts going past. We had brushetta and patatas bravas...More

This was my first time at Tapas on the Bay and the ambiance, service and food were exceptional! Our waiter was very efficient, patient and friendly. Despite the fact that we kept him after closing time did not affect the service he provided. Unfortunately I...More

Personally I was disappointed although others in the apart seemed happy enough. I found the ambiance somewhat disturbing with two local 'tramps' sitting in the corner opposite me while we were all eating and drinking copiously...I gather they are always there! The dishes varied in...More

The food and service was exceptional. I highly recommend if visiting Rodney Bay. I visited on 2 separate nights and thoroughly enjoyed the food both times. I will definitely go again when next I visit St. Lucia.

Wonderful. Came for a recommendation from a friend. It was all I was looking for. Reaching the door you can already hear the Spanish music. When you reach inside you get this Spanish feeling from a sexy bartender telling you hello with his Spanish accent...More

Enjoyed our dinner here. The tapas were tasty and fun. The shrimp past was one of my favorite meals in St. Lucia. The coconut milk gave it a uniquely Caribbean flavor. The service was attentive and the prices reasonable compared with other St. Lucia restaurants....More

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.
