My husband took me here for a special birthday celebration and I was blown away by the warm friendly service, great cocktails, the romantic ambiance, and divine food. I ordered the watermelon sling cocktail and it is one of the best cocktails I've ever had. If cocktails aren't your preference they do have a lovely wine list. I ordered the... More

We drove through Golden Rock Plantation on a general island tour and decided it was so lovely we had to back for lunch. The most recommended item on the menu was the lobster sandwich which did not disappoint. A nice glass of Chardonnay and time to gaze at the flowers, pools with lily pads and koi. What a peaceful, lovely... More

Enoyed a lovely breakfast here and a delightful lunch. We had dinner here previously which was less than perfect. The location is second to none, I always visit when on the island, great crab sandwiches for lunch and breakfast is a treat, sat on the terrace

This restaurant is within the Golden Rock plantation grounds and serves delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner. Eggs benedict a favorite at breakfast, and every breakfast always includes the freshest of fruit. Lunch very, very good with burgers, mahi mahi sandwich, lobster sandwich, etc. Dinner menu sometimes limited in late summer, but full menu on weekends and all evenings other than... More

This is an amazing place. It's inland uphill, with astonishing gardens. Arrive early and take a wander around these before grabbing a drink and chilling by the pool area. Then you're taken to your (outdoor) table and treated to a really good meal. Ours included a tasty beetroot/blood orange salad starter, excellent red snapper with risotto cake and even better...

Small boutique style hotel in amazing grounds and gardens with lots of preserved features from the 19th century. The colonnaded dining are for lunch is very classy and atmospheric. The lobster sandwich was recommended fare here and we were not disappointed -- quite exceptional. Highly recommended to call in for the aforementioned sandwich lunch and to see the grounds/gardens.

Booked dinner as read great reviews but was somewhat disappointed by the ambience, particularly the bar area. I can imagine the grounds are fantastic during daylight hours but the night time vibe was missing. Food was good but had to wait a long time for drinks to be refilled. Myself and my partner like to retire to the bar after... More

The approach to the grounds and restaurant is truly wonderful, beautiful gardens which have obviously had a lot of thought and detail put into the planning. Spend time looking around and enjoy the surroundings. Lots of different areas to eat, In or out, and try to go both during the day and evening. We had lunch in the gardens and... More

We thought we were for sure lost by the time we found the parking lot. Monkeys scampering everywhere, lush jungle foliage, beautiful old stone structures, orchids everywhere. Serene setting for lunch on the patio. We decided to explore the grounds before we left, which made for a nice hike. Couldn't help taking lots of photos of the exotic foliage!

Our family of six had a great dinner at The Rocks. The setting is really neat overlooking a rock landscape with koi pools all around. I had the conch chowder and lobster tail entree. The conch soup was delicious with some good spice. I'm really picky about chowder and thought it was exceptional. The lobster was very tender and seasoned... More
