Great good. Excellent way to try a little bit of a lot of different dishes! Service was great. Overlooks the water - nice setting.

We did a Sunday brunch here around 3pm. The atmosphere is great, right on the water. On occasion if your sitting on the covered patio when boats pull up to the Dingy dock you get the boat exhaust for a moment. Pretty view of the marina though. We ordered the chicken bacon waffle with yam fries and the seafood linguine.... More

We had a lovely meal on the deck (next to the boat landing). Great views, attentive service. The flatbreads were large enough to share (and the one with goat cheese, beets and carmelized onions the best), and the squid prepared with a Lucian twist! Lovely place for a quiet meal even when it got crowded.

Enjoyed flatbread pizzas and margaritas - watched the fish jumping out in the marina! Service was very friendly. We enjoyed lunch, did some souvenir shopping and then went back for round two of margaritas!

I went with my wife to have a drink and get a couple of tapas, but ended up ordering the whole Caribbean tapas selection, and a pitcher of sangria. The food, drink and service were exceptional! Nice leisurely pace, but you never felt abandoned by the wait staff either. I read a lot of reviews saying how expensive this place... More

Nice marina view and restaurant, the food is nice (we went for the tapas to share) although I wouldn't say it was exceptional and the portions are a little small, but the service was pretty good. My main issue with this restaurant is the high price.

Food was terrible and expensive for what you get. Would I return, hell NO. The food was tasteless and it certainly was not value for money. The view wasn't that great either, although it's the only upside to the our visit. We left feeling ripped off!

Description
With its Spanish-inspired decor and menu of 'little dishes from around the world', Tapas On The Bay is tucked into a breezy corner of Rodney Bay marina lagoon, where a steady breeze blows across the calm waters and cools its spacious covered deck. The long, Soufriere stone clad bar is perfect for enjoying a quick lunch or dinner, and the secluded location makes Tapas On The Bay a great place to relax and chill out. Taking traditional tapas as a base, Chef Rosie incorporates Caribbean and international influences, creating innovative new bite-sized dishes with local ingredients and flavours, serving them on sharing platters for a very social eating experience. There are also plenty of delicious entrees and yummy desserts to round out the menu. Throw in some excellent wines, three different types of sangria and boozy cocktails by the jug, and Tapas On The Bay could be your next favourite dining spot in Saint Lucia.

Open for brunch from 10am to 3pm, happy hour from 4pm to 6pm and dinner from 6pm to 10pm (11pm Saturday and Sunday). Closed Tuesdays.
