Description: Beautifully nestled in the heart of Historic Redcliffe Quay in St. John's, Cafe Napoleon was formerly an old sugar warehouse by a busy dockside. Sympathetically renovated, the restaurant serves a cosmopolitan menu using the finest fresh, local fish, meat, vegetables & fruits. The homemade desserts are just mouthwatering! Dont want to eat, then just chill with a Cocktail in the new Lounge Bar looking out at the beuatiful gardens and watersedge. You can be certain of the warmest of welcomes and excellent customer service from owner, Lisa and her team.

“Good Food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2012

We stopped here on our way back to our cruise ship. Hubby and I wanted to try some local food -- our friends just had drinks. Hubby had the conch roti and I had the sweet potato and crab fritters. Both were excellent. Service was quick and friendly.

“Such good food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2012

It was a stop on our cruise and before going back tot he ship we decided we wanted a snack. The place looked cosy, the staff was nice but the best part was the food. I ordered the caribbean plate and my fiance the curry chicken. It's been over a month and we still talk about it. One of the best memories of our trip.

“Great breakfast and lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2012

This is a great place to have breakfast and lunch in the heart of St John's Redcliffe Quay.

The cafe has a wonderful french flavour and is one of my favourite stops when I am in Antigua.
