Walked over for dinner our last night on the island. What a great place! You can get stuff from the Tapas menu or full dinners. We absolutely loved our dinner; Spicy Asian Chicken Nachos, Garlic Mushrooms, Teriyaki Beef Tacos, Goat Cheese Flatbread and Garlic Chicken Wings were all fantastic. Other stuff looked good too, but we were stuffed. Our server,... More

Nice setting overlooking the marina, having a villa in Spain I was disappointed with the food. The tapa was very expensive

Management response:

Hi there, thanks for taking the time to share your review. Unfortunately despite doing our best to offer a true Mediterranean experience in the Caribbean, it can be very difficult to source locally many of the typical ingredients one would expect in tapas dishes - olives have to be imported for example, as do most meats, and even items such...

We loved the atmosphere - a narrow open-air ground floor restaurant overlooking Rodney Bay. Wonderful tapas menu I recommend the mussels... But husband didn't care much for the tacos. But he's finicky.

Management response:

Hi there, thanks for taking the time to review. We're glad you enjoyed your overall experience. It's shame your husband wasn't taken with the tacos - they are something of a local favourite, but with lobster season now over they're off the menu until later in the year. Hopefully you're able to visit us again and he can try something... More

We had a pre-bachelorette party dinner here for 10 and it was great food. Good service, and we had plenty of room. They were very accommodating with our checks (separated them). They offered several different options, and it was all great!

Despite the reviews we visited. It still tore a $140 usd hole in my wallet and no table cloth.. Food was good but not great. It just feels like they are trying too hard to be hip and edgy. Great location and attentive staff. With the exception of the po faced manager. (Crack a smile dearie).

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.
