This was the best meal we have had on the island so far! We will visit again! The food and wine were excellent and our waiter was very attentive.

This isn't "fine dining" because of the casual atmosphere but the food is just as good as any 5-star restaurant. Most of the tables are situated on a deck looking out onto the bay facing East but our table of ten was seated inside. Every...More

I really liked the location, even though its in Rodney Bay it still feels secluded. The food was good and so was the service. They were very accommodating because we had a large group for brunch which practically took over the lower deck. Will recommend...More

Extremely expensive and a total waste of money. A Valentine's special was offered and it felt like a total rip off and to some extent an insult. We were forgotten at some point. We had to ask for the remaining three sides. The food tasted...More

Big chef is a much better option. By American standards, the tapas portions here are WAY too small. Skip the tapas and order an entree. The service is good.More

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.
