We decided that The Rock Cafe would be the first restaurant to try on our first night in Virgin Gorda. There were four of us, two couples and we went a little early, as we were pretty much starving. We were taken outside and up the stairs to the waterfall area. It was a beautiful seating area, surrounded by huge boulders and the waterfall. Even though it was night, they did keep the umbrellas up over the tables, which ended up being a good idea. We started the night with appetizers and bread....both very good. Three of us chose the Red Snapper as our main course, which was a special that night...and one chose the Swordfish. It really was a great Snapper that was actually breaded and all who had it enjoyed it. My husband decided he liked my Snapper a little better than his Swordfish, so he "helped" me finish it off (thanks honey...like I needed the help :) .....although he enjoyed his as well. A bottle of wine accompanied our dinner and we finished with two Cream Brule to share with the table. During dinner, it began to rain, but the umbrellas were large enough to keep the entire group protected. We were asked if we wanted to move inside, but it was just too nice outside...even with the brief rain showers that passed by. It is all part of being in the islands! The wait staff were great and were there to take care of whatever we needed. They were also very friendly and gave us a nice welcome feel to the island. Upon leaving, the piano player had begun inside and sounded quite good. The crowds had started to pick up and there was some dancing going on. Seemed everyone was having a great time. One other night while in VG, we did order-in pizzas to take back to the villa and they were also delicious. It is a great idea if you are just too tired to go out. As good as the food is, I have to say that the outdoor seating up by the boulders really helped the entire experience. It is so much better than just going and sitting inside.
