Since it's very hard to get a table for dinner we opted for lunch and it was fantastic. Very fair prices - especially for the wine and great quality food. Very nice staff. Had Rose, crayfish, lobster club and mani mani ceviche and everything was perfect. And the view...fortunately we got a table for dinner tomorrow night. Can't wait!

The owner makes the rounds to meet everyone and explain the specials. He was gracious and answered any questions we had. The food was excellent and the prices were very reasonable for the island. Friends ate the steak and tuna tartare and were very pleased. I has the lobster special which was excellent. Definitely worth eating here. The service was... More

Dear all, for all of you that is doubting to visit this restaurant please it's a must go place. All and everything which they serve is most excellent. Owner/Chef very attentive to the costumer. I liked it a lot and will visit it again. We went by boat from St.Maarten. We visit the Meads bay beach often but never eat... More

My wife and I had a lovely dinner at this open-air restaurant on the beach at Meads Bay. She opted for the generous beef tartare as a main dish, prepared tableside by one of the owners. I had an excellent haddock dish. We shared an heirloom tomato salad-- ripe and delicious. Personable hosts, well-executed food, a solid wine recommendation-- overall,... More

Not only is the setting fantastic but the staff and food are incredible. Do yourself a huge favor and put yourself in the extremely competing hands of Jacque- who manages and own the restaurant with his chef who is his partner. He will guide you to a perfect meal and wine pairing every time. Book early -- they only do... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants on Anguilla. Anytime we are here we try to get a reservation and dine here. The have a fair priced wine list to complement your meal. My wife and I split the Fettuccine pasta appetizer and it was plenty for both of us. We both had the snapper meunière and it was delicious.... More

We had been referred by the owner of our resort to Jacala as the best French restaurant on the island. The food was very good to average. I had the grilled crayfish which was excellent while my wife had the stuffed chicken breast which was ok. We found the pricing relatively high. Service was average but deserved a failing grade...

Went to Jacala our first night on Anguilla. We were not disappointed, one of our best meals on the island. There was a nice selection on the menu, the food was fresh and delicious. Definitely the best restaurant on the west end.

Have never had a bad experience. Feels like you're in France with an island setting. Service, food, setting unbelievable. This is usually our last lunch before we leave the island. The chef is amazing, very humble and a great chef. Highly recommend, but in season make reservations for dinner. Can't go wrong. If you want fast food don't come here.... More
