Large assortment of tapas with good service and a pretty setting on the bay. Pricey with small portions as tapas tend to be. Entrees were expensive.

A good mix of various fusion plates - very delicious but not very big. Highly recommend the pulled pork :)

What a great view! Service is wonderful. We shared tapas and they were good but most of them are served on bread. If you are GF, this might not be a fun spot for you. Also, if you're even more restricted in your diet (say, GF and vegetarian) then don't bother going. I have been to some great tapas places... More

We had brunch here this week and the food was very good; slightly more expensive than other local establishments but reasonable value for money.

Ok, I am selfish. I enjoy this place so much, I want to keep it quiet. The setting is amazing. The food is excellent and the service is friendly. I have been many times and find the quality is consistent. Not a large place, nor is it crowded but it has an ambiance and quality that satisfies both locals and... More

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.
