“Fantastic Drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

We didn't eat here because we had heard that the food had gone downhill and was way over-priced. $48 euro for 6 oysters on the half shell is not for me. Anywhoo, we did do drinks here for happy hour to take in the view. The staff was great and the drink list was nice too. We will always do drinks here, but never dinner.

“A must in St. Barths”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

We had an amazing lunch with the best view in St. Barths. The service was very good and the food excellent. It's a little expensive, but worth it.

“Expensive but worth it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

The title speaks for itself: it is really expensive.. 29 euros for a turkey sandwich!! OMG !!!!!! it is good, though...

We sat near a table who left 20€ for the tip, we felt a bit ill at ease... We had only 3 dollars to leave as a tip...

At the end of our lunch, we asked the lady in charge of the staff if it was possible to have two beach seats. She answered there were precisely 2 of them remaining and told us, she was booking them for us, while we were paying the bill (90€ for a pizza and a more than basic salmon meal). Once the bill paid, we wandered in the restaurant, waiting for someone to show us our seats on the beach, but no one ever came up... Thank God we hadn't paid yet!

We left.

“Great View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Went there to celebrate our sons birthday. View is awesome, ambiance is great and can usually see a large fish circling the area. Food was good. Sushi rocked and lobster tacos were good too. Wine list had lots of options from high end to some more cost effective alternatives. Would highly recommend.

“Romantic Night Time Cocktail !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

My wife and I went out for a post-dinner cocktail and did not have dinner here:) The view of St Jean Bay at night is best had from the high perch of the Eden Rock Restaurant called "On The Rock". We loved the cocktails especially the Chilli Chilli Bang Bang! The view of the water with lights shining on it and the fish in ocean along the reefs makes for a very romantic ambiance:) The perfect ending to a perfect day in St Barths! We will return to enjoy dinner next year! Merci.
