Good for: Bar Scene
Dining options: Dinner, Outdoor Seating, Reservations
Description: The Lime and the Coconut has been converted from a restaurant into a Live Music Lounge Bar. The name is still the same but people call it "the Lime" now. It has a great atmosphere that appeals to all sorts of people from everywhere, giving them a feeling of being a little more at home or some place they have been to before. We have bands playing all genres of music, from roots Reggae, to Jazz and Funk and then some good old Rock.

One of the best places to eat around English Harbour with a varied and cosmopolitan menu, covering everything from Antiguan staples to curry to Sauerkraut and Red Cabbage.
Quality is always excellent along with a small but well crafted wine list catering for all tastes and budgets.
Lucas and Jackie are excellent hosts along with a great waitress in Kesia (not always the case in Anigua sadly!) - have been there a few times now and never been disappointed by either the food wine or the bonhomie and passion of the owners.
As an extra treat, order some of the home made bread and enjoy for breakfast the next day! We will be back!

We went around 1400 and all we could get was breakfast type foods, and not even good breakfast foods. Forget about it for lunch. Didn't bother to go back for dinner. Apparently dinner is serviced by another owner? Kinda strange, but I guess time sharing a restaurant is normal down there.

Having eaten here in the evening and daytime I can’t entirely agree with earlier reviews and yes this a personal opinion.

On the first evening visit we found the the host to be all over us and interested in you but don’t expect this the second time. Having to ask to have plates cleared and then be abruptly asked whether drinks had been ordered was not on par with the first visit.

There was a definite feeling of once you’ve been hooked then second class service prevails.

The menu is definitely based on the owner’s personal tastes and cooked well, although some of the European dishes can be a little bland. The bread is ok but not fantastic.

As to a relaxed atmosphere – Hmmm. You could be in the middle of a meal and you’re being interrupted to share your table. Now we don’t mind sharing but timing is everything in the restaurant industry

Daytime service is by a cheery, loud lady BUT this is simply European style coming to the fore. But do make sure that you get there before her boyfriend shows up as service slows up after that whilst cigarettes are smoked.

Those of you who have raved about the place may think this is harsh but I actually believe with a few tweaks, less self-indulgence by the owners and a menu review, this establishment really has the potential to fly. It’s up to them and I wish the owners well.

Visited the Lime and the Coconut for a quick lunch. The food was delicious and fresh, and economically priced. Would definitely recommend. The only negative I can say is the location - they are located right on a busy corner and there was a lot of car/truck noise.
