Sheer Rocks

Sheer Rocks Review

This sensuous eatery, a series of tiered wood decks carved into a sheer cliff side, showcases the setting sun from the staggered, thatched dining nooks, many separated by billowing white-gauze curtains. White four-poster beds surround infinity pools, making it equally sybaritic for daytime lounging. The menu encompasses a tapestry of creative tapas, many of which can be served in larger portions. Chef Alex Grimley's philosophy emphasizes simplicity, detail, and only the freshest ingredients to create a symphonic counterpoint of flavors and textures—subtle to lusty, crispy to creamy. Witness foie gras parfait with onion puree, lentil vinaigrette and seven-grain toast; decadent truffle mac-'n'-cheese infused with porcini stock; or slow-cooked mahimahi with bokchoy, black olives and saffron sauce. Add a dash of sultry music, season with smashing views, complement with an admirable wine list (not to mention inventive cocktails), and you have the recipe for a tropical St. Tropez experience. It closes more often in low season; call ahead.
