It was a great time at the Rocks. We went to Nevis for the Easter weekend and dinner Saturday was definitely a highlight. Our server was very attentive and friendly. From the appetizers to the dessert was amazing. Especially amazing was the lamb and the caramel ice cream. We were surrounded by the sounds of nature and mood lighting was definitely in effect. Will definitely visit again. The cost was typical, with 2 apps, 2 entrees and 1 dessert with a bottle of champagne and we were batting over $500 XCD, but you can moderate more than we did. Give The Rocks a try, we have no regrets.

Very secluded location, beautiful alfresco dining. The food is good, unfortunately the lobster and red snapper were not available during our visit, and these we our desired entrees. Worth the visit!

The Rocks is a wonderful place to dine on Nevis. The setting is one of the best on the island and the food is superb. The service is first rate. It is truly gracious dining in a remarkable setting.

Beautiful spot. Wife ordered coco shrimp as an appetizer and Ravioli for entree. Shrimp was overcooked and after not seeing server for 5-8 minutes she trudged on. As for ravioli, her sauce was tasteless and seemed like doctored tomato soup. No seasoning. As for me, I had the crab cake which was good. After apps were cleared and as we waited for entrees, it was then that I was told they had run out. Due to allergies and a lack of interest at this point I opted to forgo dinner.

Big disappointment as we had high expectations and as it was my choice for my birthday, it added to let down after a week of great meals on the island.

Ambiance was great as everyone raves, but that was it. Not worth our time or the drive from our villa!

Lunch in this magical place was memorable and a must-visit when on the island of Nevis. The Lobster Salad was delicious and beautifully presented and the Lobster Sandwich with salad a hit as well. The famous Golden Rock Rum Punch still packs a kick and worth ordering.

Everything was lovely - the food was delicious, the service wonderful and the atmosphere unmatched. Perhaps there could be just a little more light in the area where we dined but still so romantic.

On our cruise stop for the day, had heard of this restaurant. A short 15 minute taxi cab from the cruise terminal, but well worth it. It sits on the hill/mountain side overlooking the bay incredible views in all directions, even on a cloudy day. Infinity Koi ponds all around the outdoor/indoor dining area. As a bonus the entire property is a virtual botanical garden. Every where you look a different unusual tropical plant is nestled under a big tree or palm. Almost forgot No Mosquitos anywhere around the place!

The Rocks was my favorite dining experience while I was on Nevis. The food, service and grounds we're extraordinary. My advise is to show up early and wander around for a while. It is so beautiful.

This is one of the most extraordinary restaurants we ever experienced. Besides the outstanding food and service, the environment is enchanting — an old sugar mill and landscaped grounds like a botanical garden with winding stone paths and ponds. To experience the environment, go for lunch, but even at dinner when it’s dark it’s still phenomenal.

The setting of the restaurant is idyllic. Come before sunset to wander the gardens and have a drink while watching nightfall. The food was excellent, while the service was impeccable. A must visit while you are on Nevis.

This restaurant is set in a magical location on a hillside and with a centuries old sugar mill. We had the beet and citrus salad as a starter - very tasty! Next, we splurged on the spiny lobster tails - outstanding and enough to make you feel satisfied! Service was superb!

Eating at Golden Rock is special, whether for lunch or dinner. It is possibly the most beautiful restaurant setting anywhere. The gardens are amazing in the day and the lighted terrace is elegant and romantic at night. As usual, our food was delicious, the staff was warm and friendly and the rum punch was awesome. Not to be missed!

Although the location is in the middle of nowhere, that’s what makes this place so special. It is magical from the moment you arrive at the stone steps leading to the restaurant! The entire experience was 5 star in every way. The conch chowder was incredible and the salads and mahi mahi were excellent. Can’t wait to go back! This is a place you won’t want to miss when visiting Nevis!
