The Rock Cafe has great ambience and friendly service. The atmosphere is very romantic with tables set among giant boulders and waterfalls spilling from rock to rock. The tables are lit with candles. The menu is on the pricey side, but the dishes are on par with the price. The flavor was very good on the lobster bisque, Mahi, and... More

The Tree House view really is nice. This is where we ate. If you have mobility issues however forget the Tree House since it involves a long climb. Service was ok but a bit slow. Food was reasonable. The only difficulty is that the prices are based on the idea that the food is more than reasonable, even extraordinary. It... More

The restaurant is outside and it's beautiful. Then you walk past a sign saying.... "The Tree House - Private Dining" and you are escorted up a wooden spiral staircase all the way to an octagonal shaped treehouse at the top. Great views over Virgin Gorda. The decadent menu has lobster ravioli, scallops, snapper and veal chops but to name a... More

What the service lacked the food made up for. This was not our favorite place in Virgin Gorda, but the food was worth it.

Loved sitting outside nestled in the boulders. Definitely a unique setting! Food was delicious - one of our best meals on the trip. Lobster Spaghetti was fantastic. Would recommend it! Prices are a bit high, but still lower than most of the resorts on the island. Fun piano bar inside as well if you want to stick around later into... More

This was a fun experience. We sat outside among the "rocks", actually real boulders. The food was very good, service was very good. Friendly staff. Making a reservation was easy. Reservations are recommended.

Luckily, we went in the off season when there were no crowds and good weather. The outside seating was like eating in a treehouse. The food was well prepared. We all had the fish special which was delicious.

A spectacular setting! The wait staff was fantastic. Unfortunately we ate here a couple of days before they closed for the season and they were out of most of their signature dishes. We had slim pickings regarding menu selections. What we ate was very good. I wish we could have had the lobster ravioli and fresh local fish. A bit... More

Rock Cafe is a can't miss for us every time we visit Virgin Gorda! The unique sitting of the tables around the rocks and the spectacular menu creates an incredible ambiance for dining! The bonus of coming inside to hear Sam at the piano bar for an after dinner drink is simply the icing on the cake!

Thank Sarah B
