We had dinner at the Rock Cafe and felt that it was very overpriced for the quality of the food.
There were four of us and two had the lobster which was not fresh and was the worst we have had in the islands.
The pasta was ok, but lets face it, what can you do to ruin pasta? At these prices it should be more than ok.
we visit Virgin Gorda often and will NOT return to the Rock Cafe.

We had first been to The Rock in 2003 and had a good but not exceptional meal. At the time, the highlights of the venue were the pizza (the kids had a craving) and the outside tables nestled among Virgin Gorda's famous granite boulders. We returned in 2008 with fond memories and were blown away by the way the restaurant had improved. We ate inside due to rain in the area. The decor was sophisticated and the A/C was welcome but not bone-chilling. On Christmas Eve 2008, we had one of the best Italian meals we've ever had - anywhere. One member in our party said her gnocchi was outstanding. I tried to verify myself - but she'd eaten it all! The fresh fish was perfectly prepared. I had pasta with lobster chunks in a light tomato sauce that was perfectly cooked, seasoned, and presented. The restaurant has a good wine list and full bar. The staff was very attentive and friendly. Don't miss The Rock!
