Positioned to have a great view, this restaurant has good drinks and a very good dinner. We returned for a good breakfast the following morning.

We stayed at the Trade Winds for three nights. The food was far better than we expected. It isn't cheap but does provide a variety of dishes beautifully presented and very tasty. The breakfasts were excellent.

We had dinner here on the 6th January 2017, and was our first dining experience outside of our hotels restaurants. Overall we were not impressed. Average food and service. Fortunately our dining experiences only got better after this experience. Personally we would not return.

Had breakfast at this hotel. Excellent views, service and food. Staff smiled and interacted with customers - a rare experience anywhere else on the island. Try the Antigua Local Breakfast ... not the usual eggs and bacon. The omelettes were fluffy and excellent. The Restaurant is on a cliff overlooking the bay. Beautiful location filled with tropical flowers. Decor was... More

We went for a 5:30 reservation to see the sun set on Monday 1/2/17. There was one other party so we stayed on the deck for our first drinks to take in the full view and get sun. We had a beautiful sun set within 15 minutes and of course took many photos. We moved undercover but all open air... More

We were staying at the hotel so ate all meals here for 2 days. First night, I had a delicious goat cheese salad and rack of lamb. The lamb was beautifully presented and prepared, with a perfect balance of fresh vegetables and mashed yams. Friends also raved about their steak, seafood dishes and the melon and prosciutto starter. For dessert... More

So we saw on TripAdvisor and on the restaurants web site they had a Happy Hour between 5 - 7 p.m. We found the drink prices a bit pricey to begin with,the location of the bar/restaurant being at the hotel explains this. The happy hour was really 40% off the price, we are from Canada and have traveled extensively in... More

I dined at Bay House for the first time with a group for dinner for my girlfriend's birthday. The restaurant itself is very nice.. But the service was the worst I've experienced, probably ever. It took about 30 minutes to get our DRINK orders in, and only after repeated attempt of flagging down our waiter and asking for the menus... More

We went on a rainy, hurricane winds evening! The staff were welcoming and we had a table covered but outside. As it was dark and raining I could not tell you if the view are great but I am sure they would be quite good as the restaurant is up on a hill! We skipped starters and when straight to... More
