“Lovely location for a relaxed, long lunch”
Review of Boom

Description: It is hard to beat the elevated harbourside position of The Boom at Gunpowder House - a remodeled 18th century Gunpowder store - for a scenic dining venue. The outdoor covered dining terrace and bar are adjacent to an infinity-edged pool overlooking spectacular Nelson's Dockyard, creating a wonderful upscale setting to enjoy a delicious lunch. The Boom menu highlights fresh, locally sourced produce with seafood favorites such as Caribbean Fish Cakes and Lobster Salad but meat lovers will not be disappointed by the Truffle Aioli Steak Sandwich and Peppered Tournedos.

We ate here twice on a recent holiday to Antigua. The location and ambiance are fabulous and we stayed for hours! The menu looks delicious but the second time we visited, there were many items unavailable. We were a large party, but had booked well in advance, so this was very disappointing. When they knew there were 6 children coming, having virtually no vanilla ice cream, which came with many of the deserts was ridiculous. If there is a full menu available, then it is very well recommended, but please, Boom, think ahead!

Wonderful location and view of English Harbour right in the center of the harbour. Sister restaurant of the Pillars.
Both are excellent and not to be missed.

Enjoyed lunch here whilst staying in one of the Gunpowder suites. Delicious food served poolside by friendly staff. Restaurant seemed popular with residents and visitors alike.

Open Thursday thru Sunday from 11-5. Perfect location looking across Nelson's Dockyard. Nice pool to take a dip before and after lunch. Food was great, although with a large group can take a while to arrive.

If you're looking for a restaurant with a lovely poolside and oceanic view overlooking the dockyard to top it off, Boom is that place.
