The food here is wonderful but the service was only so so. Once we received our entree, no one came by unless we tried to flag them done. I never received a drink I ordered and it was still on the bill. Disappointing about the service. We left around 7:45 and they told people waiting for a table that they could not seat them as they ran out of food. So, I guess if you want to go, go early!

Met by “Minnie”, who seated us and also waited on us. She steered us to the grouper, and we weren’t disappointed. Service was top-notch and food was great. We liked it so much, we went back another night. Best seafood on the island.

We went to Rock Lobster, St. Kitts and had a phenomenal experience. We were seated promptly and our server, Kyana (Kiki), came over and introduced herself - lovely individual. She took our drink order and brought them promptly. She explained the specials for the evening and made suggestions when it came to food allergies/intolerances.

Our orders were taken and shortly thereafter our appetizers were served. When our entrees were served they arrived piping hot and the presentation was lovely. We each ordered something different and everything was prepared to perfection.

We were offered dessert and coffee which also was served promptly and with a smile. Not once did we ever feel rushed. We would most definitely return to try other items on the menu. This restaurant is a must.

This is the most expensive of the restaurants we visited in our week on St. Kitts. But the atmosphere certainly suggested finer dining. Wait staff were attentive and courteous (without being overbearing), and food quality was excellent. I had the paella, and enjoyed it. My wife had the tuna sashimi - it appeared to be the best dish on the table, with a wonderful presentation on the plate and great taste. My son and daughter both enjoyed their meals (chicken, if I remember correctly). Despite the expense, this is a place worth visiting if you want really good seafood in the area.
