We went here for lunch so that we could use the beach chairs. Best decision ever! We had a couple of drinks on the beach before lunch. Our server was super friendly and fun! Goes by the nickname Charms. She was amazing! Drinks were delivered to us on the beach. They didn't skimp on the Rum and there was lots... More

Two week wait for dinner so make reservations in advance. We had lunch at Jacala and it was the best meal we had during our three day stay. Flavor we great. On the beach. Wine was good. Locals and frequent visitors to the island know about this place

Went because it was well rated. It lived up to expectations. The staff and the owner were engaging and well trained and organized. Loved it.

I couldn't agree more than with NY10. Although the food was delicious and serve staff, very good, the whole experience was spoilt by the obnoxious owner. Tip; If you going to manage a restaurant then be polite and approachable to all your patrons. Patronising, rude and dismissive behaviour is not the best way to win plaudits. Luckily the staff do...

Lobster smothered in mayo plus bacon and cheese on wheat is ok but all they need is a plain lobster Role sandwich without all the extra smothering. A big salad would be a nice menu item. Pretty beach location. Maybe I expected too much per all the hype.

This restaurant was fantastic and helps to solidify Anguilla as a destination for foodies. The wine list is reasonable, the specials are delicious. We did not dine for lunch, but were told by other guests at our hotel that was equally good. Must go.

Love the setting at Jacala. The restaurant is casually elegant. The food was tremendous . . . my husband had the tuna tartare appetizer and we both enjoyed deliciously prepared crayfish for dinner. As I was the only red wine drinker, I ordered the house Bourdeaux. What a treat that was! The chocolate pudding dessert was the perfect size and... More

Food was ok, nothing to write home about. The ambience was actually pretty nice. The only thing that we didn't care at all was the owner. He was very arrogant and condescending. We could tell he would treat tables that had bigger parties better than smaller party tables. The rest of the staff is ok. We've been going to Anguilla... More

Heard good things but this place over delivered for sure ! Requires a reservation! A nice walk down the beach from the four seasons ..our group of 8 New Yorkers were ready to be impressed! The boss charmed us while his staff poured the wine (excellent rose) Fresh tomatoes which had just arrived served with fresh basil set the stage... More

The co-owner and front of the house may or may not have compared my first born to a dog on a prior visit - and that was before her diaper exploded all over one of the restrooms. I think Jacques, one of the owners enjoys winding-up what he perceives to be naive Americans. The co-owners ran food & beverage at... More
