Abras have been doing much the same for the 14 years that we have been visiting, but every year the menus add new dishes whilst retaining traditional favourites. A great atmosphere always with attentive staff whilst Paulo gives a rapid and loud precis of the specials on the daily board. Just keep coming.

Went for dinner frequently, because the food was good with a varied and changing menu. Not gourmet food but excellent cooking of Italian classics. Not a pizza palace. Price typical of that neck of the woods. Also a famous night spot nearer midnight. Good atmosphere, but if you want a great harbourside view you'll need to go to Pillars restaurant,... More

Knowing this great Italian restaurant and disco-bar since its inception decades ago, it is still the only place to be, which is no small achievement in English Harbour with over 30 other restaurants there! The food is still consistently excellent with both an extensive menu and fresh specials of the day, both my friend and I chose from each, incl... More

Lovely Italian restaurant very close to English Harbour Antigua. The Pina Colada cocktail was delicious, as was the salad in a Parmesan basket, the vegetarian ravioli (ricotta with mint) and my friends' tuna, lobster ravioli to name but a few. Great atmosphere with very attentive staff. Highly recommended

Communication with the owner prior to arrival was excellent and we made a reservation in advance. We arrived early to have a glass of wine before going in to dinner. The location is convenient and the building is very accommodating. It just lacks a view of the water.. The dinner menu was presented to us and we made our selections.... More

Good atmosphere, nice staff and the prices were within what we expected for an island bar. We arrived before the crowds so we had the perks sure of sitting and taking in a sunset.

We got to the restaurant early and had a nice drink at the bar, enjoying the lounge setting before being ushered to our table. They were expecting a huge crowd with those involved in the Regatta so we were happy to be early.. The staff was very efficient and polite. The owner, from Sardinia explained the menu to us, noting... More

Came here two years go and really enjoyed the busy atmosphere and authentic Italian food. This visit there seemed to be far less guests and though the food still sounded Italian, was more simply cooked and presented, With much less flair. The venue is by the dockyard car park, not great but this didn't used to matter when the food... More

We had an early meal at Abracadabra, well before there was any sign of a disco and enjoyed our evening very much. The food was of a high quality and the service excellent. If the mention of the word "disco" is likely to discourage rather than attract you don't worry, in the early evening this is just a very good... More
