I had the pleasure of eating at Chef Rob's in February. The atmosphere was casually elegant. The food was out-of-this world...and so reasonably priced! I was hesitant about Beet-Ginger Soup, but needn't have been. The waitstaff were so well-trained and well-versed on the menu. Later in the evening, the owner stopped by our table. She was delightful...and, I found out,... More

A place to be. I will return next year. I'm not a big seafood person however I will mention that Chef Rob does have a great hand. I actually did enjoy all of my meals during my stay.

we met Chef Rob while having our pre dinner drink at the beach bar, wonderful man. We had Chef's lobster and conch in sweet and sour sauce, both excellent. Great staff. Beautiful evening.

We went to Chef Rob's at the Parrot Cove the first night we were in Hopkins. We liked it so much we went back the second night. It was simply outstanding food prepared beautifully. We had the four course fixed price menu and all of it was fabulous. Portions were generous but not crazily sized. I would highly recommend it.

Our hotel (Almond Beach Resort & Spa) recommended we visit Chef Rob's, and boy was it a great decision. My boyfriend and I are both vegan and often have a hard time eating while traveling. We immediately informed the server at the restaurant and asked if there was anything on the menu we would be able to eat. He went... More
