The top culinary group in Antigua is opening a new restaurant, Caribbean Journal has learned. 

Rocks Group, the team behind the Caribbean-leading Sheer Rocks restaurant and the popular Catherine’s Cafe beach restaurant, is opening a third location at Antigua’s Nonsuch Bay Residences. 

It’s called Rokuni, and it will be an Asian-inspired eatery that “combines Eastern dishes with the classic Rocks Group style and flair.”

Rokuni will include what Rocks Group calls a “dynamic cocktail program,” joined by a separate poolside “Rokuni and Relax” menu. 

Managing Partner Alex Grimley and Rocks Group Executive Chef Simon Christey-French will lead the opening of the restaurant, joined by Matthew Hartmann as restaurant manager; Hartmann comes from Saint Lucia’s celebrated Cap Maison. 

The Head Chef at Rokuni will be Nepalese-born, Japanese-trained Chef Rana Magar.
