Our visit to tapas was a search for pasta agreeable to our 11yo as we dragged him through all the other cuisines during our trip. They had good homemade pasta although no spaghetti and slightly undercooked. I was hoping for some seafood and was regretfully talked out of the paella by the waitress because it "takes long to cook" even... More

We ate on the large deck which looked out on the water and houses on the opposite shore. There was a wonderful breeze the whole time. We ate there three nights, we liked it so much. The servers, Kerniss and Lenton were both excellent and the host came out and welcomed us back. The tapas that we had were all... More

Really lovely way to start the day with a very good view of the water leading to the marina. The service excellent, the cocoa tea perfect and the food was "yummy". Conveniently located in Rodney Bay.

Stopped for a late lunch after visiting the shops of Rodney Bay. Loved the waterfront setting and trade winds. Presentation was excellent. Food was delicious. Loved the decor and window shutters. Good value. Go there while in Rodney Bay!

I really enjoyed dinner here. Their singer is unbelievably good. The food was very yummy. Not crazy expensive, but in line with how much you would pay for Tapas in say NYC. Great view. Great music. Food was very tasty. Nicely presented. Not excellent value, but with a view, hard to expect excellent value.

This restaurant has a great waterfront location making it ideal for peaceful lunch or dinner. Excellent service from the staff and the food had a perfect balance of ingredients. If you're a wine lover you're in for a treat because there is a wide array of wines. Great for family or a lime with friends.

On our final night in Rodney Bay we paid a visit to Tapas on the bay and what a fantastic meal it was. The weather on the evening we visited was extremely windy so we were seated indoors (this was optional, perfect for us) - the staff were perfectly attentative, the food fantastic with a great choice of tapas dishes...

Grabbed a quick lunch and enjoyed the tapas with a beautiful view of the Bay. Fun to watch the locals cross in their dinghies to buy groceries.

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.
