The inside-outside layout of this place is magnificent. Their cocktails, including the Painkiller are wonderful -- no skimping on the alcohol. The atmosphere is festive and fun, with great island music. It was packed and for good reason. Their happy hour menus and prices were easy on the wallet.

The bar was gorgeous something out of Casablanca with the ceiling fans. Drinks were great and wait staff lovely. It is interesting to get to the restaurant. We were on a mooring and it was so rough we would have been drenched if we had taken our own dinghy. We had to call the Bitter End Launch, they would take... More

We stopped by on our BVI Charter. WE came to have drinks and watch the Tarpon. The little Island was cute and we enjoyed our drinks.

I stayed on Saba Rock with my boyfriend this past week. I had eaten there in the past, but this was the first time actually getting a room. The rooms were so nice - open with great AC, and amazing views of North Sound. The staff was incredibly helpful and so friendly, and stayed out of your hair unless you... More

Saba is a good spot to spend the afternoon- casual fare and good drinks, fun staff. Great place to watch the boats and watersports.

Stopped at Saba Rock for lunch, while on a private boat tour of the BVI. The five of us and the captain from the charter ordered lunch at this perfect small island resort. The food was very good and reasonably priced for the general area. The grilled Tuscan panini was very good, as was the fish and chips. The view... More

What a disappointment- great setting and atmosphere. Unfortunately the food was mediocre, over priced and the staff attitude leaves a lot to be desired. They have a captive market and probably won't change

I think so many times when you are on vacation and dine in an exotic location it clouds your tastebuds. But in this case Saba Rock did not . The buffet they recommended was not prepared well at all. Salad was the only thing that saved us. But it does have a great boat ride from Gun Creek, boating past... More

With a reputation that far exceeds its modest size, Saba Rock boasts not only a famous over the water lounge bar and restaurant, but also an 8 bedroom hotel, 10 slip marina, gift shop, gardens and sun deck. Saba Rock Restaurant is one of the more respected establishments in the British Virgin Islands, offering both a lounge menu and a dinner menu with a wide selection of seafood (including local conch and lobster in season), salads and grills. The boutique hotel, which is consistently ranked among the top hotels in the BVI, is accessible via a 10 minute ferry ride from Virgin Gorda. Alternatively, you can arrive on your own boat and take a slip in the Marina. The Saba Rock ferry is available to pick up guests from any dock in the North Sound, simply phone ahead (1 284 495 7711) or hail us on VHF channel 16 to make arrangements. Reservations in advance are recommended for the Hotel, Marina and Restaurant. We look forward to your visit!
