Our visits to Sheer Rocks are amongst the highlights of every trip to Antigua - and this time was no exception.
The location and view is unparalleled - but even against the stunning backdrop it is Alex's amazing food that steals the show. The tapas was, as ever, sublime and the perfect lunchtime treat for the Caribbean climate. Sadly we hadn't appreicated that tapas is available every lunchtime until the penultimate day of our holiday, otherwise it could have been a very expensive trip! The fish dishes are expertly crafted, with subtle flavours enhancing the incredibly fresh local ingredients. But it is essential to leave enough room for the trio of desserts. The lemon tart is a joy, the chocolate souffle devine and even the banana and almond custard is delicious - which is praise indeed from someone who professes to hate cold custard (a hang up from school dinners I'm afraid).
We also enjoyed the new dinner menu and were just disappointed that our appetites couldn't quite extend the the tasting menu - but at least we have something in reserve for our next visit. The lobster raviloli was light, fresh and delicious and my starter must have been excellent as I offered a spoonful to my other half, who got completely carried away and ate the lot!
Alex also rustled up some nibbles from the two menus for us to share with friends at cocktail hour one evening. The Wahoo, which is a starter from the dinner menu, was melt-in-the-mouth and adored by the entire group.
Go to Sheer Rocks with time on your hands to enjoy the view and an acceptance that great quality ingredients, exquisitely prepared, come at a price.
We are delighted to see this family business thrive and amazed that the owner/chef always makes time to come out and personally greet the guests, however busy the restaurant may be. I have absolutely no doubt that Sheer Rocks will continue to be the highpoint of our holiday as long as Alex and his fantastic team are in place. Our thanks to you all.
