The Rocks at Golden Rock
The Rocks at Golden Rock Review
This glam eatery's tiered setting may be a genuine artistic and engineering masterpiece. Glass panels and ceilings display the night sky while reflecting patio lights. A series of cascading waterfalls, chutes, limpid pools, lily ponds, and fountains filigree the surrounding landscaped jungle with liquid silver. Strategically placed boulders resemble hulking Henry Moore sculpture; even the cut stone was painstakingly joined without mortar. Decor playfully contrasts classic and modern. A stone gazebo recalls an upside-down plantation-era copper boiler (the patio's barrel-vaulting also slyly mimics sugar equipment). Contemporary and colonial artworks from Mali and Afghanistan grace the interior. Sadly the kitchen doesn't quite match the setting's splendor or creativity. But the atmosphere more than compensates, and solid choices include jerk pork with pineapple relish or pan-roasted snapper with crispy risotto cake and red-pepper coulis.
