we had a group of 7 and the best thing we had was the chicken wing appetizer. We ended up spending $55 per person on a mediocre lunch and a couple of drinks. Do not recommend this place.

Lucky to get in and have an excellent delicious cocktail as a number of cruise ships were in port. Sat at the bar and watched the cocktails being made. People were being turned away as they were full.

Good service and good food. Very pricey but what isn't in Antigua. We had a shrimp dish and a crab dish. Oh and chicken wings lol. We liked it and would definitely go back or recommend it.

Great Caribbean cocktails, friendly welcome, reasonable menu of local dishes and standards, up-stairs in a traditional 100 year-old house, right downtown. The food is not gourmet standard, but a pretty good offering against the local market, and reasonable value for money. If you get your...More

Nice little cafe serving local food. It’s on the first floor, try and get a balcony table for a spot of people watching. Good fresh fish, lobster, chicken wings, conch fritters etc etc. Friendly service and open for breakfast too. My 3rd visit.

Far from it! There's a set of very steep, long wooden steps which lead to the restaurant off the road. Very tricky.
