After 11 years I returned to Antigua and was delighted to see that Melini's was still open and still going strong. The food, as always was excellent and the service was great. Mark was a great host with a very good memory.

We are veggies, not vegans so can’t really remember. All I can say is the service was amazing, so I’m pretty sure they would prepare something for you.
