We had been here before in 2015 and found the food very good. However, this time each dish was incredibly salty and unbearably so. When we told the owner she just shrugged her shoulders. The service was also very rude. My Fiance had asked politely where he was able to smoke and the waitress shouted to the whole of the... More

Very 'local' style restaurant, run by the owners, who are brilliant. The mahi mahi with lime and coriander was the best I'd tasted

This place always surprises with the superb food. This was perhaps one of the best meals I ever had.....anywhere! Nothing is too much trouble when discussing the available dishes, with the menu being presented on an iPad by the owner. They serve both fish and meat but can't say I've ever got past the fish choices, as they are so... More

Although this is right by the road it is a nice spot for a meal or drink. The food is tasty and service good. They close at weekends though which is a shame.

Absolutely amazing food! Antigua has some wonderful restaurants, but to say this meal was the highlight of a weeks worth of dining is an understatement. Started with the fried goat cheese and beets, main was lobster linguine, and dessert was coffee and a fruit tart. Everything was prepared fresh in the kitchen/dining room: dinner and a show. Best part of... More

Good lunch, pick items from "buffet". Food was good and well priced. Seating a bit cozy and tight... convenient location.

If going for dinner, best to make reservations to have best chance at one of the few seats in this very small restaurant. Also, be aware that if you are used to the Americans way of service, than you need to be ready to chill out a little. We found that being friendly and not in a hurry for anything... More

We had pasted this place a few times & it always looked welcoming, so we decided to give it a go. We hadn't booked, but the lady in charge seated us behind the main restaurant. Although it didn't have the same atmosphere as the front, it was still nice. We realised we needed to book. The waitress came & asked... More

Description
A new welcome addition to the range of restaurants in this tourist area which is currently full of super yachts. The Italian owner and her French chef partner are cooking at a really high standard in this small, but wonderfully formed wooden building. It's possible to watch the chef at close proximity. Each plate is lovingly prepared; all are delicious and some,for example the carpaccio of marlin or the seared tune, are exceptional.
