We just had the most wonderful dinner at Jacala! It was even better than I had imagined. Jacques was charming and Alain came out briefly from the kitchen to say hello as we know an old friend of theirs FIRST THING when we got there! The cucumber soup with a dash of tomato sorbet was incredible. So simple but so... More

Food delicious, more of adult setting and experience. Our children dined with us at every fine dining restaurant in Anguilla, we felt the menu and atmosphere at Jacala were not as inviting for children. A nice evening overall.

Excellent as always. One of our favorite restaurants for fine dining in evening. Wonderful place to go see sunset. They are now open for lunch but we haven't gone for lunch

Best food, service and atmosphere on the Island. The owner goes table to table to explain the menu and make sure every customer is happy. He is engaging and charismatic. The lobster was incredible. Every aspect of the meal and service is done superbly. A+

We walked down the beach on a very hot afternoon in pursuit of lunch at Jacalas. We were very hot and sandy upon our arrival, and the staff was wonderful. They immediately came over and seated us at a shady table on the veranda with a beautiful ocean view. They came with cold bottles of water and menus and asked... More

It was a Sunny Afternoon on Meads 12:30 reservations. Arrived 10 mins. early.... Some debate on what to do with "walk ins" with the staff. Always luv a little bit of Dining Intrigue. We got our corner table. 8 bottles of Rose and 4 bottles of Mersault in the first 40 minutes. (Not us, but the whole floor). Helps pay... More

One of the best tuna nicoise I've had. Delicious crisp fresh vegetables, watermelon and goat cheese salad achieved fresh and delicate flavors, and breads on table hot and savory.

My sister's and I arrived a little early for our reservation. We were seated and ordered a bottle of Rose. After placing our order we were brought an amazing amuse bouche of cold asparagus soup. I hope I can recreate that at home!! We then shared a conch ceviche that was perfectly seasoned. Our dinners were chicken breast stuffed with... More

Dinner was so good, we returned the next day for lunch Service was great! Jacques, the quirky owner was charming and had his eyes and ears on every table Everything was great. The whole snapper, cucumber soup, lobster soup, snapper ceviche, and lobster. Fairly priced wine list. The same bottles were less than at molliouhana or straw hat down the... More
