My husband enjoyed the pulled pork sandwich and I enjoyed the grilled Mako Shark over a Caesar salad. Lunch was delicious and the view was superb!! Can't wait to return. Our waitress was also super pleasant. Great dining experience

You visit here for the fabulous views. However you cannot leave without having their amazing rum punch. The views and cocktail combination is unbeatable!

The Round House sitting on top of a hill overlooking Bathsheba, with the surf rolling in, surfers out trying wave after wave after wave and just the rhythmic beat of the ocean is just right for anyone wanting to get away from it all. The staff we hadn’t seen in quite a long time but remembered us from years past... More

We had been told about the Round House by our hotel owner so we included it in our little road trip down the East coast. Fairly easy to find, on equally fairly steep roads, this restaurant was just what we were after. We hadn't booked a table, but were taken straight to a table by one of the windows overlooking...

I have eaten many times at the Round House and over the years the food has been going down hill. It has the same great views but the food is now bland and portion sizes are small and uneven. It could be that it is catering for tourists and so does not have the seasoning of more 'local' orientated restaurants.... More

We had a rental car for a day and were really looking forward to visiting the area and having lunch at The Round House. The views were spectacular but the food just didn't live up to our expectations. We had two of their lunch specials and honestly the piece of deep fried flying fish on a bun was miniscule and...

We visited Round House last Sunday for lunch as it was our anniversary and we had young kids. The scenery is amazing, but the meal was poor. The potato chips were overdone, unsalted and flavourless, and the flying fish was also overdone with no taste or texture. I asked for a salad to go with my meal and it was... More

Certainly out of the way but the east coast adventure will never be forgotten by us! The food was great (reasonable too) but the cocktails were outstanding, as was the service!
